Hannah Jeter Got Stuck In an Elevator at SI Swimsuit Event

Hannah Jeter and Hannah Ferguson walk the red carpet at the VIBES by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 Launch Festival event on Friday night (February 17) in Houston, Tex.

The ladies had a scary moment at the Sports Illustrated event in New York City the night before when they got stuck in an elevator while trying to leave the party!

“The party was on the second floor, and Hannah [Jeter] took the elevator down one floor to exit because they didn’t want her to take the stairs because she’s pregnant,” a source told Page Six. “There was a huge commotion when she and Hannah Ferguson got stuck inside, they were in there for about 30 minutes. The fire department was called, and two huge trucks arrived with about 20 firefighters. They came at the elevator with a big hook to get the two models out.”

When she emerged, Hannah “was totally calm and thanked the firefighters for coming to her assistance.”

Also pictured inside: Barbara Palvin, Lais Ribeiro, Robyn Lawley, Rose Bertram, and Kate Bock attending the party in Houston.

FYI: Lais is wearing a Sandro jacket.

Kate previously covered the issue in 2012 and 2013. The current record holder for most amount of cover appearances is Elle Macpherson, who has been on the cover five times.

“I was very excited when [SI Swimsuit editor] MJ [Day] asked me to be back in the issue,” Kate said about her return. “Especially when this year’s theme is about every woman of every age and every body type being accepted. It was inspiring to be asked to be a part of that issue.”

“For me, it was MJ’s passion for having it be this theme and this issue and that’s why I wanted to be a part of this magazine again,” Kate added. “Those are the campaigns I want to do and the career I want to have — to inspire women to love themselves. That’s a balance of working hard and eating healthy but also enjoying life and having cheat days and for the emphasis not to be on the ideal perfect body. It makes me proud to be asked back.”

Cheryl Tiegs on Ashley Graham's Swimsuit Issue Cover: It's Unhealthy

Cheryl Tiegs is criticizing Sports Illustrated for putting Ashley Graham, a plus-size model, on one of the Swimsuit Issue covers as she believes it’s unhealthy.

“I don’t like that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches],” the 68-year-old former model told E! News.

“That’s what Dr. Oz said, and I’m sticking to it,” Cheryl added. “No, I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run.”

Ashley recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about being the first plus-size model to grace the magazine’s cover in its 52-year history.
