Hailey Clauson slays in Coney Island spread, and there's one picture people can't stop talking about

Hailey Clauson slays in Coney Island SI Swimsuit spread.

SI Swimsuit model Hailey Clauson is accustomed to a little attention. After all, her topless 2016 SI Swimsuit cover raised more than a few eyebrows when it hit newsstands back in February.

So when we took the blonde beauty with us down to Coney Island for a few days of fun in the sun, we knew she'd be equipped to handle the crowds. And you know she attracted quite the crowd...


Starring alongside 2014 SI Swimsuit cover model Nina Agdal, Hailey totally owned the boardwalk as she modeled some of the season's hottest looks. Did we mention she also revealed that she used to take part in hot-dog-eating contests when she was younger? Hard to believe, huh? 


But if you think that's impressive, just wait until you see the photo that has the Internet buzzing. Turns out Hailey's a big fan of merry-go-rounds and crop tops...

You do the math. 


Eager to get in on the fun? On Aug. 28, we'll host the inaugural Sports Illustrated Summer of Swim Fan Festival and Concert, featuring Action Bronson. It'll take place on the iconic Coney Island Boardwalk, which has attracted fun seekers and frank eaters for decades. It also happens to be the perfect backdrop for the photos of Nina and Hailey that appear in this week's special issue and online here. 


So grab your suit and join us as SI Swimsuit makes a sizzling summer even hotter. You do NOT want to miss this.
