Hannah Davis is now a household name thanks to her amazing Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover that showed us a sizzling peek at what’s down there. The cover has caused quite a stir among conservative folks, who think the act of lowering her underwear is too risqué for the public.
Davis isn’t sure what the fuss is all about because she’s a huge fan of the work that she did for the popular magazine. “I liked it because it was something different,” she revealed to People Magazine. “SI is always known for going to exotic locations, so to sort of stay local and do the whole ‘America the Beautiful‘ theme, I found it new and fresh.”
The cover was shot on Blackberry Farm in Tennessee, a unique choice of local especially since previous covers featured models posing away in the sandy shores of exotic locales. “I thought you had to be on a beach,” Davis joked.

Last year’s cover girls were also fans of Davis’ sizzling cover. Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen, and Nina Agdal also spoke to People mag about how deserving Davis was to nab the Sports Illustrated gig. “It’s definitely life-changing, getting the over,” Aldridge said. Aldridge also revealed that she had Davis’ cover framed.

Another fan of the cover is Davis’ boyfriend and baseball player, Derek Jeter. The couple went to a dinner party with friends and family to celebrate the cover. Meanwhile, Jeter’s ex, Vida Guerra was on a mission to prove that she’s “Derek’s hottest ex” by posting a revealing photo shoot that’s even more risqué than Davis’ cover. Fans of Davis however called out Guerra’s shoot, saying that she needs to try a little harder because Davis doesn’t need to show it all to look “breathtakingly beautiful.”

Davis is now hoping that the buzz from her cover will lead to more work for her. “I really admire models like Kathy Ireland, Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum. They used their SI platform to really do some amazing things, like having their own companies.” Looks like Davis is posed to take the fashion world by storm!
