SI Swimsuit 2015 Casting Call: Martha Hunt

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?

MARTHA HUNT is hardly a new face to the fashion world. Born in North Carolina, the blonde made her name with Victoria's Secret, both on the runway and in their campaigns, which launched her into a number of other lingerie modeling jobs (thank you, V.S.). She claims to go by Marth Vader (which I so badly hope is not a joke because . . .  awesome) and counts among her favorite books a compilation of profiles from the "Lunch with the FT" section of the Financial Times. Also, her hilarious answer for "what was your first screen name?" is why I added that question in the first place. I give Martha major props for all of the above (and everyone knows that props from me can spark a massive boost in one's career).
