Caesar's Palace came to life on Wednesday as a video of this year’s SI Swimsuit models was projected over the entire side of the mammoth hotel to celebrate the release of this year's issue. The video, a mix of 3D and animation, featured photo shoots from all seven continents including Kate Upton in Antarctica, Chrissy Teigen in Easter Island and more. Photos in this year's issue were taken in all seven continents, a first in SI history. Check out the video below to get a sense of the size and scope of the film.
The event, which was streamed live on SI.com, included a pre-show and red carpet walk by all the models. The most common reaction among those in attendance was "Wow." Julie Henderson, who is appearing in her seventh swimsuit issue, said of the spectacle: "Amazing. Incredible. I am in awe." After the five-minute video was shown, the models headed to Marquee to celebrate.
