The Best Swim Launch Looks Over the Years

Our models always turn up the fashion for the annual SI Swimsuit launch party.

That time of year is almost here: swimsuit season. No, we’re not talking about summer beach time (which we are excited about), but rather the annual SI Swimsuit cover reveal and issue drop. And trust us, this year’s roster of models won’t disappoint. The group will be sure to come dressed to the nines for not one but two red carpet events as we’ll be celebrating in Hollywood, Fla. To honor these upcoming fashion-forward events, we decided to take a walk down memory lane to past launch parties and choose some of our favorite looks.

You can get your tickets to the 2022 launch event here.
