In the 80s, Sports Illustrated was sexier



Every year, the same old hub-bub: Sports Illustrated has a new edition of their annual swimsuit edition. Everyone goes crazy-insane for the latest half-naked photos of models we've never heard of before now.

But everyone remembers these names: Christie Brinkley, Kathy Ireland, Paulina Porizkova. And they didn't have to be nearly nude to get our attention (though that would have been fine too).
