The United States. Land of the free. Home of the brave. And host to every frame shot for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine in 2015. Watch as the models and crew of SI Swimsuit take on their latest challenge, executing the 2015 theme “Made in the U.S.A.”. Covering the vast span of the US is no easy task. Over 8 months 23 models, 2 athletes and more than 20 photographers, stylists and crew members combine to tackle all the majesty America has to offer. From the wetter than expected “Garden Island” of Kauai to the Mother of All Highways, Route 66, the super models discover unknown pieces of the country, and themselves, along an epic journey for the ages. Then, from the Pacific Northwest’s infamous fog to several of the country’s most famous national parks and monuments, the cast and crew bring beauty from the seas to the canyons in America’s heartland. Finally, the team completes their “Made in the U.S.A.” season with three distinctly different shoots focused in the Eastern portion of America. From an upscale working farm in Walland, TN to Captiva, FL to the US Virgin Islands, a dream team is assembled, and the crew completes their campaign with Hannah Davis’ striking cover shot, and another one of the best pictures of the year.

Join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. With a special gathering of 22 past cover models as our backdrop, we begin our travels in space with Kate Upton defying gravity in the first-ever weightless fashion shoot. Next we take to the mountains as Genevieve Morton, Kate Bock, Emily DiDonato and Ariel Meredith discover the striking scenery of the Swiss Alps. We then criss-cross the globe to find Anne V, Natasha Barnard, Bregje Heinen and Valerie van der Graaf enhancing the majesty of Brazil. We continue our journey in Madagascar where Irina Shayk, Jessica Gomes, Marloes Horst and Chanel Iman accentuate the beauty of the exotic wildlife found on this African island. Up north Hannah Davis, Gigi Hadid and Sara Sampaio showcase the recovery of several Jersey Shore towns post-Sandy. We enjoy the turquoise water and local culture of the Cook Islands with four past and current cover models, Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal. Last but never least, the rookies—Emily Ratajkowski, Hannah Ferguson, Samantha Hoopes, Cris Urena and Lauren Mellor—visit St. Lucia and are body painted with a nod to the past in iconic SI swimsuits. Our anniversary celebration ends in New York City where Heidi, Tyra, Christie and all the Legends of Swimsuit gather for a truly epic event.
