SI Swimsuit is celebrating the launch of its 2016 issue with a four day, two state extravaganza complete with fan festivals, musical performances and parties. Monday began with the official release of the issue and launch of the (new, improved, kickass) SI Swimsuit website. It also marked the first day of our New York Fan Festival, located at the Altman Building in New York City. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the action.

The building (a.k.a. - SwimCity) was covered with enormous murals of the girls, which allowed me to do cool things like take pics of Kate and Caroline in front of themselves.

This was the first time the girls took a good look at the issue. Rose and Kelly approved of what they saw.
