Adaora: “My sexiest shoot location was in Namibia. One of the shots involved me wearing a tiny 2-piece bikini in bed, which was situated near the balcony of a tented lodge.

Irina Shayk: “Every year, the locations get sexier and sexier. It was Zambia last year and I had to get wild, handling a cheetah on a leash and surrounded by wild zebras.
