The cover of Sports Illustrated's 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue went to not one, not two, but three models in Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen and Nina Agdal.
Wearing barely-there bikini bottoms, the beauties got cheeky in the watershed issue, turning to the camera and show off their perfectly toned backsides.
The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover trio had to endure a brutal shoot in the Cook Islands ... compared to Kate Upton's Antarctic adventure:
Not since 1994's "Dream Team" of Kathy Ireland, Elle MacPherson and Rachel Hunter has a trio of supermodels appeared on the cover of the buzzworthy issue.
Chrissy Teigen (right) and Nina Agdal (left) are veterans of the annual bikini photo extravaganza, while Aldridge (center) is a newcomer, but a worthy one.
"I feel so lucky," Aldridge, the 28-year-old wife of Kings of Leon's Caleb Followill and mother to 19-month-old-daughter Dixie, said. "It's a dream come true."
Adds Nina Agdal, 21, "I'm speechless. It was my goal. I couldn't be happier to be on this year's cover. Absolutely amazing!" Teigen, 28, had a similar take:
"I started crying. It was a weird shaking [and] trembling ... I didn't believe it."

The trio is also sharing the honors with a fourth cover girl. Sort of.
A special, very real-looking Barbie swimsuit issue cover will reportedly be packaged over the top of 1,000 copies as part of a promotional deal with Mattel.
