Elle’s Fair

Vanity Fair is running a short retrospective of SI swimsuit photos, including some I've never seen before.

Probably the most delightful is a behind-the-scenes snapshot of Elle. She’s wearing this heart-stopping suit from the 1989 issue:
…but between shots, she’s just casually standing there, fingers laced, perusing photos with Jule Campbell.
There’s something distinctly sexy about the model in an unguarded moment, still dressed in the skimpiest scraps of clothing but completely unposed. The photos she’s looking at are undoubtedly of herself, in that very same triangle of red fabric.

Plus, it’s Elle. I will never get tired of her.
