Kim Kardashian has made her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover debut. The Skims Founder is the cover girl for the 2022 edition of the American sports magazine.

In a post on Instagram, the reality star shared that the photo shoot was done in January in the Dominican Republic, 'one of her favourite places in the world'.

"It's an honour and a dream to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Bucket list goals," she wrote alongside a carousel of photos from the magazine spread.


In the cover interview, the 41-year-old shared what it was like to make her SI swimsuit debut at this age.

"I vividly remember Tyra Banks on the cover and women with curves. I remember thinking, that is so cool. But, I still didn't think I would have - I thought you had to be a professional model and a runway model. It was always really young girls. I don't want to date myself or sound old, but in my 40s? That's crazy!," said the reality TV star.

Kardashian's cover is one of four, also featured are Ciara, Maye Musk and Yumi Nu. According to the magazine, the "59th issue celebrates 28 powerful women in an inclusive range of backgrounds and body types."

SI Swimsuit editor in chief MJ Day said: "The journey we've been on - to break out of the mould the world put us in - may sound familiar. It's certainly familiar to the women we've chosen to be our cover models: Maye, Ciara, Yumi, Kim."
