Yesterday, Hannah spoke to Matt Lauer on the Today show where her risque cover was censored with a large red ribbon.

'I think you're making it look a lot naughtier than it really is to be honest,' the 24-year-old told Matt Lauer.

When the censored cover was flashed on screen as she spoke to the host, the knockout appeared amused by the massive graphic that left her lower half concealed.

It draped the leggy beauty from below the belly button down to her thighs.

'To be honest, I think SI always tries to do something a little different every year, and I think this year, it's the year of the torso' she added.

The provocative cover shows the knockout striking an alluring pose clad in a two-piece bikini.

She leaves little to the imagination while pulling the bikini bottom down with her hands in the racy photo snapped by Ben Watts.

Since the cover was unveiled on Wednesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, it has been the subject of criticism by some conservative observers.

Still, the girlfriend of baseball star Derek Jeter is proud of joining the ranks of former cover models like Kate Upton, Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum.

'It was an overwhelming sort-of moment. I was so blindsided by the whole thing, but it's an honor.'

The Victoria's Secret stunner said that she hopes to follow in the footsteps of three-time SI Swimsuit cover model Kathy Ireland, whose home furnishings line moved $2 billion in merchandise in 2011, Forbes reported.
