Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Sport's Illustrated has been taking measures to revolutionize and bring its special swimsuit issue into the 21st century — as much as a magazine dedicated to women in swimwear can be, at least. The publication finally cast a more diverse group of stars, like Ashley Graham and Ronda Rousey, to cover the issue. Graham is the first plus-size model to front SI's swimsuit mag.

Some things never change, though. Gigi Hadid appears for the third time in the magazine, which hits newsstands today. Both SI and Hadid have been sharing the images of Hadid that are featured in the spread.

Hadid is seen relaxing on the islands of Tahiti sporting tie-dye, chain, and shell-shaped bikinis. The spread was shot by photographer Yu Tsai.

Meanwhile, Hadid has yet to cover the swim issue of SI, but continues to rack up Vogue covers. She just unveiled her cover for Vogue China on Instagram.

You can see Hadid's full shoot with Sports Illustrated here.
