Walter Iooss shoots “Body Paint” feature for Sports Illustrated’s latest Swimsuit Issue

For Sports Illustrated‘s 2013 Swimsuit Issue, Walter Iooss photographed a feature that, ironically, contains no actual swimsuits at all. For “Body Paint,” the models—Chrissy Teigen, Alyssa Miller, Kate Upton, Anne V, Nina Agdal, and Ariel Meredith—each sport a famous suit inspired by past Swimsuit Issues swimsuits and created solely with body paint.

The shoot took place at Emerald Bay on Great Exuma in the Bahamas. The body paint and makeup was by Joanne Gair, using Body Art Products by Reel Creations and Make-up FX Studio. Here’s a look, along with link for videos of Walter’s photo session with the models…
