Natural Beauty

Sports Illustrated captures America's natural beauty at a few of the most famous national parks in the country. Old Faithful proves to be less-than-faithful to the crew, while 50-mph winds in Utah kick up sand, pebbles and huge problems.

Beauty and the East

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit crew heads east on the final leg of their "Made in the USA" shoot. Models horse around on a working farm and are faced with a body paint disaster when waves start to roll in at the beach.


Sports Illustrated kicks off their "Made in the USA" shoot in Kauai, HI, where the crew must face Mother Nature in a battle for the perfect magazine cover. The models fight the wind and rain to find the perfect light.

West Coast

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit team travels more than 1,000 miles along America’s scenic West Coast to discover the country’s most beautiful landscapes. The models have to contend with bees on a lavender farm, and they try to outshine a towering redwood forest.

Route 66

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit hits the road on legendary Route 66, traveling from Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier in California. Along the way, the models visit a local Missouri bar and pose for Sports Illustrated’s first ever Model Selfie Shoot.
