Spend time with Kate Upton and friends in the 2012 edition of Sports Illustrated: Making of Swimsuit. This year SI takes you from a NYC studio to Victoria Falls in Zambia with stops in Australia, the Seychelles and for the first time ever – Panama. Take a helicopter ride with Jessica Perez, Ariel Meredith, and Izabel Goulart as they explore Panama’s most remote beaches. Next Stop Zambia where Irina Shayk, Cintia Dicker, Kirby Griffin, and Genevieve Morton get cozy with rhinos and cheetahs: they make Victoria Falls even more spectacular than you could imagine. Watch how the tides, winds, and uncooperative weather motivated our crew to get the most amazing photos of Anne V, Julie Henderson, Chrissy Teigen, Alyssa Miller, and Nina Agdal in the Seychelles. Long days in Australia proved to be lucky for cover girl Kate Upton. Witness the beauty of Australia’s cliffs, sand bars and koala’s with Crystal Renn, Michelle Vawer and Adaora and see how hot an iceberg can get, as Australian native Jessica Gomes makes her way to Bondi Beach. No year is complete without a couple of “extras” featuring world-class athletes. Our legendary body painting section includes golfer Natalie Gulbis, soccer sensation Alex Morgan, and Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin wearing only the veneer of artist Joanne Gair’s brush. Finally, join Bar Refaeli as she shows tennis champion Rafael Nadal, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, and basketball superstar Chris Paul what it takes to be part of the Swimsuit Issue. So go on location to the world’s most breathtaking hideaways with Sports Illustrated supermodels in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video.
