Gallery: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models Party in Miami and South Beach

A bevy of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models ditched the NYC winter storms and fled south to Miami to complete the second leg of their trip to kick off the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 issue.

On Wednesday, Feb. 17, SI and 1 Hotel South Beach hosted “Swim Beach” Sports Illustrated Fan Festival where the eager masses got a glimpse of their favorite SI models, including 2016 cover girls Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson.

 

Seen and heard: Chrissy Teigen, who was chatting about her pregnancy and cravings; a gracious Gigi Hadid showed one fan how to take the perfect selfie; Erin Heatherton commenting how the 2016 SI Swim issue is “all about T&A” – and that she’s definitely “a T girl” as it’s her strongest “asset”.

Late on Wednesday night more than 20 SI models walked the red carpet including Lily Aldridge, Nina Agdal, Samantha Hoopes, Chanel Iman, Hannah Davis, Barbara Palvin, Bo Krsmanovic, Emily DiDonato, Kate Bock, Kelly Rohrboc, Robyn Lawley, Rose Betram and Sofia Resing.

 

There were SO many models, in fact, that Teigen – eight months pregnant – was overheard joking that the red carpet was “slower than the one at The Grammy’s.”  Teigen flaunted her lush curves in a skin-tight black midi halter dress with revealing lace-up sides, telling a reporter she “can smell chocolate in the air,” and that she was “naturally the one most looking forward to the barbecue”. Doting husband John Legend couldn’t stop staring at his bombshell wife, holding hands all night. The couple was seen hanging with Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge before departing for a private concert by Wiz Khalifa at Story nightclub.
