With the release of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition featuring Kate Upton on the cover, it's time to go back into the vault and unearth the sexiest women in bikinis to ever grace the pages of SI's annual gift to mankind. Who are the hottest chicks in swimsuit history?

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.

This is a voteranked list, so be sure to find the women you think are the hottest in Sports Illustrated history and vote them up. If I've missed one of your favorite sexy SI girls, enter her in to the list at the bottom of the page yourself!
