The 2023 SI Swimsuit runway show during Miami Swim Week was an exciting one: from Jena Sims showing off her baby bump (she’s now a mom to 11-month-old Crew) and Nicole Williams English walking the runway with her little girl India Moon, to all four Nader sisters opening the show and longtime franchise icons closing the event, it’s a year we will never forget.

For the magazine’s 60th anniversary, the brand obviously had to bring back some legendary talent to the fold and make each moment this year extra special—and Miami Swim Week is no exception.

Joining SI Swimsuit models Williams English, Sims, Kamie Crawford, Brooks Nader, Christen Harper, Katie Austin, Hunter McGrady, Lauren Chan, Ellie Thumann, Penny Lane, Xandra Pohl, Achieng Agutu and Camille Kostek will be seven new faces.

Meet the incredible women who have captivated the hearts of the internet and built a strong, empowering personal brand, below. They will each be walking in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Runway Show at the W South Beach for Miami Swim Week on June 1, which you can livestream at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday below.
