Swim 2015 Casting Call: Heidy De la Rosa

CASTING CALLS for Swimsuit 2015 are in full swing and we are bringing you a sneak peek at some of this year's Swimsuit hopefuls. Who do you think will make it in?

IF MODEL Heidy De la Rosa weren't a model, she could probably make a living as a professional best friend. Unfortunately for the rest of us that privilege has already been claimed by SI Swimsuit 2014 Rookie Chanel Iman.) The Puerto Rico-born model exudes the kind of positive energy that stays with you long after you meet her. So I knew she wouldn't mind if I bumped some Drake and had a little fun with our impromptu photo shoot. Can't say the people in the surrounding offices appreciated the dance party as much as we did, but to all those people I say, "Sorry not sorry."
