SI Swimsuit legend Nina Agdal made her magazine debut in 2012 and returned for a total of eight features in her six consecutive years with the brand. In 2014, she landed on the iconic 50th anniversary cover alongside fellow brand stars Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen

The Danish model, who recently got engaged to media personality and professional wrestler Logan Paul, has been featured on the front of numerous magazines, including Glamour, Maxim, The Daily Front Row, Cosmopolitan and many more.

The 31-year-old traveled to the Desroches Islands in the Seychelles, Hayman Island in Australia, the Cook IslandsUtahZanzibar and Mexico throughout her time with SI Swimsuit.

“I did one shot on a wooden boat in Zanzibar with Ruven [Afanador] that I absolutely love. It’s just so colorful and vibrant, and I remember taking that exact shot in that exact moment” the former Victoria’s Secret model gushed about her 2016 photoshoot. “The wind was blowing perfectly in my hair, and I was just so thankful to be there. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and [editor in chief] MJ Day were the ones to put my name on the map, and that helped me pursue my modeling career in a way that wouldn’t have been possible without them,” the former Victoria’s Secret model added. “Some of my best memories are from the early, early mornings and shoot days with the SI crew.”
