Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2006

Sports Illustrated 2006With an All-Star Model cover featuring Veronica Varekova, Elle Macpherson, Rebecca Romijn, Rachel Hunter, Daniela Pestova, Elsa Benitez, Carolyn Murphy, and Yamila Diaz-Rahi – you know the issue is going to be a keeper. With 250 pages featuring 25 of the world’s most beautiful supermodels including tennis superstar Maria Sharapova, it really is mmm… for the three M’s who wear Alex Woo jewelry of course!

Molly Sims: Famous for being one of the hottest runway models, her photos have glistened in Victoria’s Secret, SI swimsuit issues and countless advertising campaigns for a long time. Known for being both intelligent as well as beautiful, she hosted MTV’s House of Style and in 2003, she joined the cast of NBC’s fast-paced and sexy drama Las Vegas in the role of Delinda Deline. Having also been in “Maxim’s Hot 100,” and finished a role in an indie called “Venus and Vegas,” it is only appropriate that she proudly wears Alex Woo’s Vegas Collection in Sin City for her photoshoots. Wearing both a “lucky 7″ from the Little Numbers Collection and a “spade” in many of the photos, what can anyone say but we’re happy she switched from being a lawyer to pursue a modeling career.

Marisa Miller: With a face that has graced the cover of magazines like Vogue, Fitness and Shape, it’s no wonder SI called her back for the 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 Swimsuit Editions. Born New Years Day in 1980 in the coastal city of Santa Cruz, California, she still says “The first thing I do every morning is go online to check the surf. If the waves are good, I’ll go surf. The beach is 10 minutes away.” In many of the photos, she is seen wearing Alex Woo’s Little Season’s Daisy Pendant.

Mallory Snyder: First spotted in MTV’s Real World in Paris 2003, this 5’11″ soccer athlete was born Jan. 7, 1984 and silenced all the dissenters with multiple appearences in Sports Illustrated and a clear sense of ambition. In several of the photos from her winter shoot in Huahine, Tahiti, she is wearing Alex Woo’s Daisy Pendant.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2002

Sports Illustrated 2002Viva el Bikini! This year’s cover model Yamila Diaz-Rahi sits pretty in Mexico wearing a swimsuit by Macarena Gutierrez, shoes by Manolo Blahnik, and Alex Woo’s classic Malia armband. Born in Argentina, Yamila is of Lebanese and Spanish descent and ironically had no intention to become a model. Everything changed however when she was spotted by a modeling agency scout in Buenos Aires and eventually selected to grace the cover of SI’s Swimsuit Edition. Favorite quote? “Some people have active imaginations, but they don’t know me and they’re wrong if they think they do.”

Also inside the famous magazine was native bahaman export Shakara Ledard heating up Brazil’s shore wearing Ambika and Alex Woo’s Angel armband. Born to a Bahamian mother and a French father she attests “It’s hard for a black girl to make it in the fashion industry, but it has fueled me even more and made me all the more determined to make it in the world.” She has succeeded.
