Less than one month until the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hits newstands and the buzz is beginning to build. This week it was leaked that Kate Upton went to “space” for her Swimsuit photoshoot and there was a bash in Los Angeles to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Swimsuit that brought out current stars and legends alike.

Each year we like to predict which women will make their Rookie debut and what body paint theme the SI editors will choose. Our predictions in 35 Women We Want To See In Sports Illustrated’s 2013 Swimsuit Issue was spot on – we nailed Michelle Jenneke and Alana Blanchard – to name a few. So who might be in this year’s issue released on February 11th? Find out below.
