Alexis Ren I'm a Modeling Trailblazer ... Thanks SI Swimsuit Issue!

2/14/2018 3:28 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alexis Ren's not trying to hear the haters dismissing her as an Instagram model who has no biz being SI's Swimsuit Rookie of the Year -- she's too busy changing the game ... for the better, she says.

Alexis told us she's excited to be part of the new wave of nontraditional models, who don't get their start on catwalks and glossy magazines. She's not planning to rest on the laurels of her SI title or her nearly 12 million IG followers ... instead, Alexis wants to prove she's the new model for modeling success.

The good news for her fans is ... she wants to find new ways to connect with you.

As for her status on Instagram, now that she's got the ROTY title? More good news.

Olivia Culpo Butt Naked For SI Swimsuit ... Amendola Jealousy Ensues

2/13/2018 8:36 AM PST

Here's Olivia Culpo fully nude for the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition -- begging one very important question: 

HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE DANNY AMENDOLA RIGHT NOW!? 

The former Miss Universe (2012) was a finalist for S.I.'s "Rookie of the Year" -- and despite these insane photos, she somehow didn't win.

Culpo's pics were part of a shoot called "In Her Own Words" where models like Hunter McGrady, Sailor Brinkley Cook (Christie Brinkley's daughter) and Paulina Porizkova wrote meaningful words on their body. 

SI says the shoot is "a platform that allows the voice, the strength and the passion of these women to be expressed in the rawest form…on the naked body."

Mission accomplished. 

The Swimsuit -- er, lack thereof -- issue hit shelves today ... and it's full of insanely gorgeous women who will end up dating Patriots players because that's how life works.

Seriously though ... good for you, Danny.

Alexis Ren Straight Fire In Micro-Bikini Photo Shoot

11/10/2017 8:11 AM PST

It may be November ... but it's 74 degrees in Honolulu -- so Alexis Ren decided to put on her tiniest bikini and hit the beach. 

The "Queen of Instagram" (she's got more than 11 MILLION followers) was climbing all over some volcanic rocks ... and still managed to be the hottest thing on the island. 

By the way, Ren is a 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition rookie ... and judging by the behind the scenes footage from her debut S.I. shoot -- she's gonna have a future in this biz. 

Samantha Hoopes I Gotta Pack on Lbs. to Get on S.I. Cover (Just Kidding ... Maybe?)

10/26/2017 9:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

You can't say models don't eat ... because Samantha Hoopes just put her foot in her mouth, saying she can't get on S.I.'s Swimsuit Issue cover due to her weight -- or lack thereof.

Samantha was at LAX signing tons of her swimsuit modeling shots for fans ... when we asked what's the deal with her NOT scoring a cover. It's clearly a sore subject because she immediately threw shade at bigger models ... suggesting S.I. might give her a look IF she packed on some pounds.

She quickly pled JK, but it feels like her joke's at least partially based on real feelings. Remember, S.I. gave Ashley Graham the cover in 2016.

Samantha did admit the modeling landscape has changed drastically, and, to be fair ... she says that's a good thing.

Who's ready for chicks in bikinis?

We've got smokin' hot pics of 15 finalists all fighting for 1 spot in the S.I. Swimsuit issue ... including Camille Kostek -- the on-again, off-again GF of Rob Gronkowski.

Gronk's ex ain't the only hottie in the group -- its an All-Pro field with ladies of all shapes and sizes. 

The contest started with thousands ... but S.I.'s only picking 1 to appear in the mag when the issue hits the presses.

How? We got no idea. But we're all winners here.

S.I. Swimsuit Model Joy Corrigan Over the Top

5/3/2017 7:50 AM PDT

Joy Corrigan won't be held back by anything when she's on the job -- especially not a silly bikini top.

The S.I. swimsuit model was doing a photo shoot in Miami, and ditched the top half of her bikini just because ... and the view -- front and back -- seemed to be working from the photog's point of view.

Joy's no stranger to Florida shoots ... she pulled a Baywatch look last summer, where things got pretty messy on the beach.

Tough job. We're glad she's doing it.

2/15/2017 6:59 AM PST

The woman behind the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is turning the tables on herself -- posing in her bikini to spread her message, "There is not a singular definition of beauty."

Of course, the magazine has gotten criticism over the years for showcasing women with insane physiques that could cause body image issues for people unable to look like the traditional model. 

But MJ Day says the S.I. Swimsuit issue has evolved under her leadership and now features more diverse body types than ever ... body types everyone should be proud of. 

So, she put her money where her mouth is ... and by the way, good for her -- she looks great!
