For the 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue launch, the team went all out. The two-day “SI Swimsuit Garden” event in Hollywood, Fla., at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood was filled with all sorts of activities. And though it’s hard to choose just one favorite moment from the weekend, a highlight had to be the gifting suite.
Models Yumi Nu and Josephine Skriver took us on a tour of all the swag, which included products like Vita Coco and TRX. “I use TRX a lot when I travel,” revealed Skriver.
Nu and Skriver chatted about what they were most excited to see in the suite. “We have some amazing, amazing giftings this year,” said Nu. “I’m very excited about the skincare package. We have some moisturizer, lip balm and eye cream in here.”
Skriver said she couldn’t wait to try the Emsculpt ab session that consists of high-intensity electromagnetic therapy to sculpt muscles. “It zaps your abs,” she described.
The event featured many beauty and wellness activities such as manicures, facial masks, workout demonstrations and massages. Though it was a weekend of pampering and celebrating, it was also one of meaningful discussions. Si Swimsuit editor in chief MJ Day several hosted panels with the models to talk about diversity and body positivity. Ultimately, it was the perfect forum to allow everyone involved in the issue to show off and kick back.
