Lori Harvey to Grace the Pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s Landmark 60th Anniversary Issue
In a significant moment for both Sports Illustration and the model herself, Lori Harvey is set to make a striking appearance in the 2024 edition of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, coinciding with the iconic magazine’s 60th anniversary. This marks Harvey’s inaugural feature in the renowned issue.
A seasoned model who began her journey in front of the camera at the tender age of three, Harvey described her inclusion in the upcoming May issue as “a dream come true.” In conversation with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, Harvey expressed her aspirations for the impact of her feature. “I hope it ignites a sense of empowerment, confidence, and comfort in one’s own skin,” she said. “I aim to highlight the importance of inclusion, body positivity, embracing individuality, pursuing dreams, and the power of manifestation and prayer.”

In addition to her notable modeling career, Harvey ventured into entrepreneurial waters with the launch of her swimwear and resort wear brand, Yevrah Swim, in collaboration with the fashion retailer Revolve in August last year.
Harvey’s entrepreneurial spirit extends to the beauty industry with her skincare line, SKN by LH, established in October 2021. The brand’s inception was fueled by her personal experiences battling rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition.
MJ Day, editor-in-chief of SI Swimsuit, praised Harvey’s inclusion in the upcoming issue. “Lori Harvey is the epitome of empowerment, radiating confidence, authenticity, and an unyielding spirit. Her significant contributions to the realms of fashion and beauty mark her the a formidable force and visionary.”
