You might have heard that Swimsuit 2008 launched yesterday. So we thought this would be the perfect time to unveil our all-time favorite Swimsuit models. When you're done reading our list, send us yours.
Dude, how old are you ... 20? Do you not remember the greatness of the 80s and early 90s when these beautiful women graced the pages of SI for the Swimsuit Issue: 1. Kathy Ireland -- oh, those green eyes! 2. Elle McPherson -- The Body 3. Cheryl Tiegs -- fishnet suit 4. Stephanie Seymour -- those eyes 5. Rachel Hunter -- big hair, pouty lips
Gutless coward! You failed to publish my rebuttal to your cusp-of-puberty, self-flagelating article. Now, it's likely that you trim what little has grown in down there, motivated by some lame fantasy of abusing women like an Eastern European porn star. Are you ever able to free both hands at the same time? Or is one always in your crotch?
1) Marissa Miller (body) 2) Petra Nemcova (smile) 3) Daniella Pestova (eyes) 4) Heidi Klum (Her coming out of the water is my favorite ever) 5) Rachel Hunter (lips) 6) Elsa Benitez (first cover I ever saw) 7) Veronica Varekova (smoking on the cover) 8) Molly Sims (extremely hot) 9) Jessica White (what a body) 10) Brooklyn Decker
#1 I think the #1 of all time has to be Hiedi Klum year after year she is just brings it. #2 The most under rated in my opinion at 2 is Daniella Sarahyba just beautiful have you seen a bad photo with her in it. I think not. #3 Tyras cover are you kinding me how did she not make this list. #4 Kathy Ireland smoking to all generations. #5 but anyone of this years line up of Gomez, Baker, Garcia, Haro, Shyak great rookie year, but if youre talking all time how do you not but Elle. The 5 spot is hard how do you leave off.
SI should, of course, establish the Swimsuit Model Hall of Fame along the lines of MLB... 75% vote required et cetera... I'll leave the details to you... and, there is no doubt that Cheryl Tiegs would lead the first hall of fame class.
