What all began as a genius idea to cure a case of the winter blues, has turned into a 50-year phenomenon bringing the world’s hottest women to our attention and skyrocketing their careers to stellar heights! As Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition celebrates 50 years, FashionTV takes a look at some of the sexiest SI swimwear models for some afternoon heat.
Do you remember that photo shoot with Bar the Beauty? You know, the one where she’s wearing a string vest and nothing underneath? Well, if you have no idea what we’re on about, then we suggest you check out the swimwear models’ 2012 beach shoot.
Whether she’s posing for high fashion shoots or in swimwear on the beach, it’s near impossible to take your eyes off Irina Shayk: she’s got the body, the lips, and the personality.
She’s rumored to feature in the 50th anniversary special issue, released in just over a week’s time, but Christie Brinkley is one of the original SI cover girls. In this heart-pounding photo shoot, watch Christie as she stands atop a Safari Jeep and gets charged at by an elephant!
Time to get intimate with Kate Upton, the 21-year-old that put sexy into snowboots. The 2013 cover girl squeezes into to some seriously skimpy whites for her Antarctic shoot and we can think of one way to help her warm up!
