Rookie Reveal #2: Ashley Smith

Generally, when you talk about models and gaps, you’re talking about thighs. But with Ashley, you’re talking teeth.

Hers is about two Jessica Harts wide.

We’ll see if I can come around like I did with Jessica.

Jessica's seems quaint now.
Welcome, Ashley!

EDIT: Of course, this being the internet, a swarm of assholes has descended on the SI Swim Facebook page for a vicious snark-&-insult-fest over Ashley and her teeth. Come on, dimwits. Be your better selves.

Rookie Reveal #1: Erin Heatherton

Well, the prophesies are coming true. Erin is a swimsuit rookie for 2015, with a cute little preview here.

(Bellazon, in case you’re into spoilers, has a definitive list of the likely roster.)

Great body. Awesome pose (love the tilted hips/legs together look, like, lots). Hair is a bit of an explosion, but all in all I welcome Miss Heatherton to the fold!

Kelsey Lately

Mere days after I wondered if Rebecca Shore would continue to be the sole contributor at Swim Daily, someone by the name of Kelsey Hendrix showed up to write a few entries.

No idea if she's supplementing Rebecca or taking over for her. But either way: Welcome Ms. Hendrix!

Today she hinted that there will be an ongoing series called "It Takes Two," extolling the joys of two models on the same shoot. (I agree. Two is a magical number.)

She kicks us off with Gigi and Sara from 2014. Suitably, here they are on a tandem bike.

Who's next? Elle and Kathy? Tyra and Valeria? Rebecca and Angie?

Rachel and Sabrina?

The Covers of Aldridge

The swimsuit issue will be upon us in a mere month, and it will be followed by a mini-launch-music-festival in Nashville, featuring music by Kings of Leon.

Ring a bell? Kings of Leon is fronted by Caleb Followill, who is husband to one Lily Aldridge.

This led to immediate speculation that we are in for Lily as cover girl.

Who, me?

I would have a hard time complaining about that. (Personally, I’m rooting for Hannah Ferguson, but Lily would be a great consolation prize.)

One month, ladies and gentlemen! How time flies.

One-Piece Wednesday: Vanessa Lorenzo

I’m not sure what this photo is from, but it’s a very pretty shot of this one-hit wonder from 2002. Today is Vanessa’s 38th birthday.

And here is a video of her being bench pressed by her boyfriend.

Topless Tuesday: Irina Shayk, 2011

Whether she was in the Philippines or Hawaii, Irina Shayk had a fantastic 2011.

Happy 29th birthday.

I'm Off to a Slow Start in 2015

And I guess I just felt in the mood for some 2013-era Natasha Barnard.

By the way, the Angie Everhart photo I'm using for the January banner is from a scan by Bellazon user Juju62.
