Sports Illustrated editor MJ Day wrote about the decision to pick Kostek as a cover model.

“A short year ago, Camille Kostek was a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model search hopeful, vying for a coveted rookie spot in the 2019 issue,” Day wrote. “In a short amount of time, she has leveraged the power of her brand to inspire and educate others while at the same time pursuing her own dreams. She is a star on the rise.”

Model Tyra Banks and women’s soccer superstar Alex Morgan join Kostek as the other two cover models.
