Darcie Baum, You're Killing Me

This means there's a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model wearing nothing but paint being photographed somewhere in the world right now.

Happy Birthday, Chrissy Teigen

Normally, I'd combine this news with One-Piece Wednesday, but pics of Chrissy in a one-piece are in short supply. I've already used her pink knit 2010 one. And this one from 2011:...Well, it's frankly not the most attractive suit. So let's celebrate her 26th with this heart-stopping shot.

Jarah Mariano

In the blur of Thanksgiving, I missed Jarah Mariano's birthday on Wednesday.This is probably my favorite photo of her, from 2008. It could have been the cover.

I Don't Mean to Brag, But...

I do have a Twitter account, but there's not much in the way of tweets. (I use it to follow, not to be followed.) Still, Ms. Alt, it is an honor.

One-Piece Wednesday: 2012 Mystery Ladies

Last Friday, @darciebaum tweeted this:...which linked to this:It was one of a series of promising one-piecers we've gotten a glimpse of from Darcie and MJ.I'm particularly enthralled with upper-left (Kate Upton perhaps?) and lower-right (a rookie? That's a very sexy corner-of-the-mouth..).

I've been snatching up all the preview shots I can (well, the ones that don't get taken down for some prudish reason or another). It will be fun to try to match the sneak-preview tweets with the models, once February rolls around.

Lap Full of Caps

@SI_Swimsuit posted a link to a Gillette "Rookie to Cover" site from a year or two ago, where you can follow the journeys of Brooklyn Decker, Marisa Miller, Petra Nemcova, Veronica Varekova, and Rebecca Romijn from their first appearances in the magazine to their covers some years later.

One of the 2002 shots of Veronica shows her in her Dos Equis bottlecap bikini.
Now wait a second. When this pic was published, it looked like this:They edited out her bikini bottom.

I have spent nine years filled with sympathy for how painful that suit must have been to wear. And it was just more bikini bottom trickery from SI.

Backwards & Forwards

It's 11/02/2011. The date is a palindrome. Let's pay tribute to our palindromic models.





And let's round it out with a few mirror images.







And as long as we have them around:
Yvonne and Yvette.
