Kelly Rohrbach Wins 2015 SI Swimsuit Rookie of the Year Award

The future of SI Swimsuit is here and her name is Kelly Rohrbach. The Georgetown grad beat our six other first-year models to win SI's 2015 Rookie of the Year Award. Even more impressive, this was Kelly's first professional shoot as a model. Her fans liked what they saw as a late surge in voting helped her win the award with 39 percent of the vote, holding offErin Heatherton(32 percent) and Rose Bertram (13 percent) to capture the award. You can view the full voting results here.

Kelly is the sixth rookie to receive the award. Past winners include Chrissy Teigen(2010), Kate Upton (2011), Nina Agdal(2012), Kate Bock (2013) and Sara Sampaio (2014). It's been a big week for Rohrbach, who also appears in a new ad campaign for Old Navy. Below are some of our favorite moments from the newly-crowned Rookie of the Year.
