In the next installment of our series "Yu (Tsai) and Me," our talented photographer is bringing you extraordinary images of SI Swimsuit 2015 rookie Erin Heatherton!
A highly sought-after fashion photographer, Yu Tsai is best known for his work with SI Swimsuit, as well as other top-tier publications like Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire andinternational versions of Vogue and Flaunt. Showcasing the girls you already know and love, styled by some of the industry's best, he's capturing their beauty in a new light. And the results are exactly what you'd expect—flawless.
Erin, on the other hand, might be a "newbie" here at SI Swimsuit, but she's no newbie in the world of modeling. Discovered in South Beach, Erin first moved to NYC to pursue a career in fashion at the young age of 17. She has walked countless runway shows, booked features with almost every high-end fashion glossy you can think of, and walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from 2008 until 2013. And as you all know, just this year, our newest blonde bombshell joined the Swimsuit family and instantly became a favorite among our fans around the world!
In this unique collaboration, Erin and Yu Tsai worked together to create images that are raw, real and really, really hot. From a lace bralette to distressed denim jacket, we all know there's nothing Erin doesn't look good in. So be prepared to be rocked by these never-before seen images of everyone's favorite freckled babe!
