SI Swimsuit 2015 Casting Call: Lauren Bedford

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?

LAUREN BEDFORD is simply googly-eyed over her fiancé, Rangers forward Brian Boyle. Presumably he's a little tied up in a few other things at the moment, but to be fair so is she. Last week the 30-year-old Orlando-native stopped by for a little meet and greet with the SI Swimsuit team. Next week, though, she'll be married, which has to be exciting for the model who has covered her fair share of bridal mags. No more pretending; she's ready for the real deal.
