    Sports Illustrated model at photo shoot on St Lucia

    Things are heating up on the island of Saint Lucia and it’s not just the weather.

    The 50th edition of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2014, which went live across the web, mobile, tablet and newsstands on Tuesday, features the picturesque and colorful landscape of the Caribbean island paradise Saint Lucia.

    Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Senior Editor MJ Day explains, “We chose locations for the 50th anniversary edition that we knew would grab readers’ attention. Saint Lucia’s iconic Piton mountains, gorgeous beaches, and lush rainforest were a perfect fit for this historic issue.”

    While visiting Saint Lucia, SI Swimsuit recreated its most memorable past swimsuits fashioned from body paint. To get a behind the scenes look at the shoot, visit the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit website at

    Models Emily Ratajkowski, Chris Urena, Samantha Hoopes, Lauren Mellor, and Hannah Ferguson, are featured at three locations throughout the island, including Soufriere waterfront – a lively fishing village, Malgretoute Beach – a calm mooring site for yachts sailing around the island and finally, Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort – owned by the former accountant for the Rolling Stones.

    “We were thrilled to host Sports Illustrated as they shot the 50th anniversary issue,” said Tracey Warner Arnold, deputy director of Tourism for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board. “There is something almost magical about our island that clearly captured the imagination and eye of MJ and her talented SI Swimsuit team.”
