On the heels of the #MeToo movement, SI elected to employ an all-female crew and give the models complete creative control.
The result was a series of striking images in which women literally wore empowering messages such as "Truth," "Fearless," and "Pure."
There was also plenty of scanty swimwear. It is the "swimsuit issue," after all.
Below, enjoy sexy pics of every gorgeous model featured in this year's mag.
