Bellazon user MissLimaVzla has uploaded some photos of what seems to be an SI swimsuit advertising tie-in with Canon.
Here’s the link, if you happen to have access to it.

This implies that three of my favorites—Sara, Ariel, and (most importantly) Hannah Ferguson—are returning.
And just for fun, you get to see Hannah make a bunch of weird, angry faces.

Same Suit, Different Babe: Christie & Irina, 1980

A couple years ago, I pointed out the similarity between this suit on Christie Brinkley from 1980 and a 2012 one-piecer from Julie Henderson.
(Though, upon reexamination, I don’t think Christie’s suit is a one-piece at all. I think it’s a bottom with suspenders plus a cotton top.)

In any case, it turns out Irina Gerasimenko wore the same getup that year.

Attention, Swim Daily:

These big, crisp photos of Stacey Williams from 1994 are quite lovely.

But I eagerly await the day when you dig into the vault and produce a few dozen never-before-seen shots (and suits) featuring the third greatest swimsuit model ever to appear in SI.

I know those pics are there. Release them! #FreeStacey

Dueling Julies

Did a bit of a double-take on Swim Daily today. This is, of course, not the Julie Henderson I’m accustomed to seeing in SI.
This Julie Henderson has a bit of a Tyra-meets-Noemie look to her. And as a bonus, she’s one of a handful of casting call candidates who’s not a blonde white chick.

Don’t get me wrong. Blonde white chicks in the swimsuit issue are awesome. My Julie Henderson is a blonde white chick

And the casting call I’m by far most excited about? Another blonde white chick.

But SI is trotting out a lot of them in the casting calls.

Including Hailey Clauson, who’s actually been confirmed via paparazzo.
2013 and 2014 brought us sixteen rookies, and the vast majority were white. Let’s get a bigger splash of diversity.

One-Piece Wednesday: Bernadette Swann, 1980

I love when Swim Daily provides high-quality photos from old-school issues, pics we’d never see otherwise. Bernadette was married to Lynn Swann at the time, making her one of the original “players’ wives” to appear in the swimsuit issue.
She later married Sugar Ray Leonard, to whom (if Wikipedia is to be believed) she was introduced by Kenny G.

Happy Birthday, Lily Aldridge

29 today.

Recently, she appeared in Esquire Mexico.

And reincarnated the 60s in S Moda.

And the 70s in GQ UK.

All the while, she can’t seem to stop wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie.

I really, really hope she’s back in SI come February.
Just unforgivably stunning.

Jayne, Get Me Off This Crazy Thing

This photo has been in the news today.
So that seems like a good excuse to feature Heidi's recreation of it (playing both roles).
