Throwback Thursday: Dominique Piek

Publish date:

Dominique Piek got into the Throwback Thursday spirit this morning when she tweeted a photo of herself (below) from 2004 with the caption, "#tbt in the streets of #paris almost 10 years ago... shot by Manuele Geromini xxx." This inspired us to look back at Piek's 2010 SI Swimsuit shoot from the Maldives. We spoke with Piek in May and asked herabout that day she found out about being a SI Swimsuit model. "I went in to see the editors two times before they booked me, " she recalls. "I waited for almost a month before we got word that I got the job and I have to say… it was one of the most exciting phone calls I ever received from my agent. My parents were SO proud because they knew how badly I wanted it and my friends were all like 'YEAH can you invite us to all of the fun parties?'" We don't know if her friends got invites to the parties but we do know that Dominique remains one of our favorite models and the subject of today's Throwback Thursday.
