It’s that time of year again. Time for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition – only with body paints instead of real swimsuits. We shouldn’t be surprised that our post on 2013 SI Swimsuit models wearing nothing but body paint is one of our most popular. So of course we’ve got a look at this year’s SI bathing suit models with painted-on swimsuits.
2014 SI Swimsuit Models in Body Paint
The 2014 SI Swimsuit Models in body paint were photographed by Walter Iooss Jr. on St. Lucia. Cris Urena, Emily Ratajkowski, Samantha Hoopes, Lauren Mellor and Hannah Ferguson pose in painted suits inspired by real suits from the past. Unlike past years, the body paint artist is not Joanne Gair but instead some unnamed artists.
