She's stunning, sexy, and sweet. And she's back! We're so thrilled to have Anne de Paula return for her third shoot with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit!
Anne was the winner of our 2017 Model Search, which earned her a spot in SI Swimsuit 2017's rookie class. And she's been a part of the family ever since!
"It’s something I really wanted when I started modeling. It’s amazing to finally say I’m able to be an SI model," she told us last year. "When I started modeling, I would show people SI photos that I wanted to recreate on the beach in Rio. I wasn’t expecting it all."
Although Anne started modeling at age 13, she never dreamed that any of this would happen. "I really wanted to be a doctor because all of my family works with health," she continued. "I was a tomboy … I used to play soccer on the team of my city. I used to be a goalkeeper and that was my number one thing."
We for one are so glad Anne chose to pursue modeling...although she would've been one seriously sexy doctor, too!
Anne is shooting this year at Hemingways Watamu and Hemingways Ol Seki Mara in Kenya with photographer Yu Tsai, and we'll be giving you a behind-the-scenes look on our social platforms! Follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to see all the action from Anne's shoot!
