With dozens of previously unpublished swimsuit shots, 'Portfolio: The Swimsuit Explorers Edition' is an expanded and exquisite look at the making of the magazine's best-selling issue. Modern women, ancient lands. In 2009 the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue' gave new dimension to the term natural wonder, photographing the world's most beautiful women at the most mysterious and magnificent sites on the planet.
In 'Portfolio: The Swimsuit Explorers Edition', the editors of 'Sports Illustrated' re-visit the destinations of their most recent travels to assemble a lush, behind-the-scenes account of their experience, detailing the intimate moments captured on location in Turkey, Mexico, the Grenadines, Spain, and Italy. It's an all-access pass with 19 super models as your able-bodied guides. Bar Refaeli, Brooklyn Decker, Hilary Rhoda, and Julie Henderson (among others) supply the travelogue, accompanied by the best-known fashion photographers in the universe.
