On Thursday, May 16, SI Swimsuit models walked the red carpet at the Hard Rock Hotel in New York, en route to the issue launch party. Every single one of the looks could not have been more fit for the occasion: from mesh detailing to sequins, models from this year’s issue really nailed the assignment.

Yesterday, they took their talents to Hollywood, Fla., for the second half of the weekend-long celebration. The first night featured a party at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Boras Pool, a series of cabanas and pools beneath the iconic Guitar Hotel tower.

Under the lights that emanated from the tower, the models stepped into the party in their best fashion. While there is a lot to be said for the looks we saw on the pool deck on Friday night, there was one common trend that we really couldn’t get enough of: cut-outs.

Ellie Thumann

The two-time SI Swimsuit model’s baby pink dress featured silver sequins and a flattering keyhole cut-out in the front. Paired with soft cream heels and an up-do, Thumann was ready for a Florida night.
