I think it's important to understand some things concerning SISE. It is NOT, and never was designed to be high fashion. It was simply a marketing tool to catch people's (alright, let's admit men!) attention at a time (February) when everyone is tired of winter and looking for a distraction. I think it is fair to say that there are no better distractions than beautiful women in bikinis at a time when every woman in most of the US is covered from head to toe in heavy clothing. Get the picture? As such, and due to the swimsuit editions enormous circulation (far greater than any other issue of SI) it has the ability to literally make the career of whoever appears in the issue. If you listen to any of the videos where Diane or MJ (principal decision makers about which models are chosen to be in SI) speak about the models, they look to give the cover to a veteran who has a track record with SI, and want to introduce new girls to keep it fresh and promote them as their careers develop. Bar Rafaeli, Tori Praver, Irina Sheik are outstanding models in the mould of SI cover models, but they aren't ready yet for the cover. Ana BB and some others have been in and out of the swimsuit issue, so their following is sporadic. Think of it this way: Marisa Miller and Yamila have been mainstays in SI for a long time now and both are household names to SI's male subscribers. Either one should get the cover.
