Random New Year's Eve Notes

A few tidbits from Swim Daily. Beach Bunny swimwear has been kind to us at the close of 2013, giving us a severe-looking Nina Agdal:

...and then a gorgeous Irina Shayk:

And Crystal Renn appears in a German Magazine called Tush, dressed up like a 60s glamorpuss:
Happy New Year, see you in 2014.

Let's All Rejoice That Paulina Porizkova Exists

 I believe these are from 1984. I think I found them on a Tumblr somewhere...

Swimsuit Doldrums

Sorry for the lack of posting. Maybe it's the holidays, but I'm feeling kind of sluggish, with two months to go before the 2014 swimsuit issue greets us.

Let me toss up these two stellar shots of Nina Agdal sporting a shiny, golden Sauvage one-piece. Maybe that will make it up to you.

Happy Birthday, Bridget Hall

36 today.
I thought I'd toss in this Photoshop experiment I happened upon online somewhere once upon a time. The project seems to have been to take this (non-SI) photo:
...and render Bridget invisible.

Some folks on Bellazon and on MJ Day's own Instagram have been pointing out some similarities between the sneak preview suits and some previously published photos--again--for the 50th anniversary.
I'm not against the idea per se, but I feel like they've kinda done that enough. Especially considering that Marisa Miller has already recreated that Christie-Brinkley-in-rubber-bands shot.
It's entirely possible that these are coincidences. I mean, women's swimwear only has a handful of shapes it can take and still be recognizable as swimwear. But these are pretty uncanny...

In any case, it'll be fun again if it happens. I enjoy seeing the girls replicate earlier shots. Whatever SI puts in front of me, I'm sure I'll ogle it happily.

Stay tuned.

News Flash: Lines Coming into Focus

Looks like Emily Ratajkowski is in for 2014, per MJ Day’s shots from the front.
 Bellazon maven and molespotter 2324lebron submitted this illustration as evidence.
I approve, SI! Just make sure she doesn’t lose any of her Ratajkowskiness!

Model Battles

Swim Daily recently posted about a shoe commercial featuring SI girls Tori Praver, Chrissy Teigen, and Hannah Davis engaged in a bit of a three-way male-fantasy shoe-catfight.

Coincidentally, I just learned that back in September two SI swimsuit athletes competed against each other in an episode of Chopped. Danica Patrick defeated Natalie Coughlin.

Happy Birthday, Jarah Mariano

There really should be more photos of Jarah on this blog.
And everywhere, for that matter.
Happy 29th.
