Once again, the bodypainting section of the swimsuit issue recreated shots from previous years. Last year, it was covers. This year, they delved inside the issues in search of suits that represented the five decades.
Just like in 2011, all the painted girls were rookies.
I thought I might spend the week looking at them in reverse chronological order (which will line up nicely with Topless Tuesday and One-Piece Wednesday).
Same Suit, Different Babe” post from last September. In 2007, this guitar pick bikini was draped over the lovely bodies of both Irina Shayk and Bar Refaeli.
And you can also find Marisa Miller wearing it, though I’m not sure if she wore it in the issue. The only photo I could find is this cover of Ocean Drive magazine. (That Ocean Drive is also from 2007, so my assumption is that the photo is from SI.)
In fact, Bar and Marisa join Irina in the 50th Anniversary “Legends” section. So there are four pickini models in the same issue.
