The only women to pull off the trifecta before her were Tyra Banks, Heidi KlumChristie Brinkley and Elle Macpherson, who holds the all-time record with five appearances on the cover. Upton, who’s only 24, may not be done either. 

For 2017, Upton will grace three different covers, as you can see above.  On two of them she’s topless. Which is her favorite? Let’s let her tell you.
