REBECCA ROMIJN may be the host of the new show Skin Wars - a competition devoted to uncovering the most talented body painters in the country - but her expertise on the subject comes from years of first-hand experience. From being famously-coated in bright blue to play Mystique in multiple X-Men movies, to posing in bikinis (and a whole lot less) for SI Swimsuit, this girl knows her stuff when it comes to naked women. (Find out what she thinks about the show here.) This Throwback Thursday, we bring you the best of Rebecca Romijn on SI shoots from around the world, plus a bonus video.
