Embark upon an epic journey as the SI Swimsuit team crosses the globe, traveling to all seven continents in seven months. The expedition starts with Nina Agdal, Alyssa Miller, Genevieve Morton and Natasha Barnard traveling to the very windy Whitsunday Islands of Australia. Next stop: Africa. Ride the majestic dunes of Namibia with Adaora, Emily DiDonato and Cintia Dicker. Picking a European destination was not an easy task but once you see the splendors of Seville, Spain you will understand why this destination made the cut. Watch Irina Shayk, Julie Henderson and Ariel Meredith learn to bull fight in this picturesque city. Anne V, Jessica Gomes and Hannah Davis pay a visit to China and bask in the stunning landscape of Guilin. Jessica Perez, Chrissy Teigen and Kate Bock make the journey to one of the most remote islands in the world: Easter Island, Chile. The moai statues are monumental and create a striking backdrop for our models. And for the first time ever – a fashion shoot in Antarctica. Kate Upton takes on the incredible challenge, weathering the storm on a continent that is mostly made of ice. This footage is not to be missed. Finally, a group of models recreate five iconic past SI Swimsuit cover setups in nothing but body paint. It’s another chance to see Kate, Chrissy, Nina, Ariel, Alyssa and Anne V as the Bahamas provides the final locale of this amazing journey.
