The first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue was published in 1964 and is often credited with popularizing bikini models and making it a mainstream fashion item. Over the years, many famous models and supermodels have been featured Sports Illustrated models, including Rebecca Romijn, Christie Brinkley, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Marisa Miller, all of whom appeared on the cover of issues. Other models like Stephanie Seymour, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford appeared in the magazine but not on the cover. At times, non-models have also graced the pages of the swimsuit issue, including tennis players Steffi Graf, Serena Williams and Anna Kournikov and Olympic medalists Amanda Beard and Jennie Finch. Singer Beyonce Knowles appeared on the cover in 2007, becoming the first non-model ever to do so. Race car driver Danica Patrick has also been featured, as have cheerleading squads for NFL teams, including the San Diego Chargers, the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots.
