**********

Rachel Hunter was just 19 when she made her first appearance in the SI Swimsuit issue and has been a fixture on the modeling circuit ever since. The New Zealand native would appear in seven more swimsuit issues (1989-91, 1993-94, 2003-04, 2006) and become one of SI's most popular all-time models. While many know her for her marriage to Rod Stewart, Hunter also  she's appeared in several independent movies, including 1999's A Walk in the Park and 2000's Two Shades of Blue. She is also known for her work on the small screen, mostly for appearing in reality shows such as Dancing With the Stars, The Real Gilligan's Island, Are You Hot?, Style Me With Rachel Hunter, Celebrity Circus and most recently as a judge on New Zealand's Got Talent. So on this Throwback Thursday, we pay homage to a true SI legend, Rachel Hunter. **********
