Over two dozen brand stars are gearing up to participate in a legendary photo shoot over the next few days that will be unveiled with the release of the 2024 SI Swimsuit Issue in May. While the publication date is just over two months away, we’ll be teasing the process along the way, starting with a few exclusive behind the scenes images from today’s fittings.

Alongside celebrity stylist Molly Dickson and the magazine’s editor in chief, MJ Day, models were styled in stunning couture looks from head to toe. Each woman donned long, shimmery gowns in various sparkly, romantic hues and accessorized with statement jewelry and sky-high heels throughout their morning and afternoon fittings. The excitement was palpable in the venue and from afar as Banks and Bloom shared a sweet moment together, Stewart and Day posed for photos and models Camille Kostek and Molly Sims teased their impending arrival on Instagram. 

Below, take a sneak peak at what some of your favorite SI Swimsuit models were up to today in preparation for the week ahead.
