Gayle King Made Her ‘Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’ Debut in Classic One-Pieces

Gayle King knows she can wear a swimsuit – and she has the Sports Illustrated cover to prove it.

Tuesday, the CBS Mornings co-host was revealed as one of the 60th anniversary cover stars Swimsuit illustrated by Sports Number alongside Chrissy Teigen, Hunter McGrady and Kate Upton. King wore nine stunning one-piece swimsuits during her photoshoot, including a white halterneck paired with heeled platform sandals.

Although being featured on the coveted cover wasn’t exactly something the 69-year-old “dreamed of” throughout her career, she told PEOPLE that it was “one of the highlights of the whole that she did.” Although she didn’t have any major specifications when choosing her costumes, she explained, “I wanted a tasteful neckline, and they accommodated all of that.”

We’ve rounded up swimsuits inspired by King’s supportive and flattering optical white one-piece on Amazon — as well as the green and yellow suits she wore while filming. Prices start at just $27.
