Other women who did the cover three times include Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Christie Brinkley, who also is featured in this year’s edition with her two daughters. Elle Macpherson holds the record with five cover appearances.

Other notables in this year’s edition include former cover girl Chrissy Teigen, an expectant mother, and athletes including Olympic gold medal gymnast Simone Biles and tennis players Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., and Serena Williams.
