Whitehaven Beach, AustraliaNatasha Barnard: “Without a doubt Whitehaven Beach in Australia. We got there by seaplane and I can’t even begin to describe how magical it was. It’s like a deserted island with baby-powder sand and it’s right on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Humidity and wet sand made this shoot really sexy!” 960 1280
NamibiaAdaora: “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. The walls were rolled up so I basically had an open backdrop of red sand, swaying brush, magnificent hills, the radiant sun and even a few wildlife! So sexy!” 960 1280
ZambiaIrina 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. Shooting in Spain this year, it was a beautiful and steamy 120 degrees. Regardless of the location, you can’t help but feel sexy because all you wear is a small bikini!” 960 1280
Exuma, BahamasAnne V: “The sexiest location I have ever shot in was while body painting in Great Exuma, Bahamas. There’s nothing more beautiful and sexy than miles and miles of the whitest sand, warm turquoise water and the most spectacular sunsets! This paradise definitely brings out your inner beauty and sex appeal.” 960 1280
