CZECH MODEL Daniela Pestova was only 24-years-old when she got on the cover of SI in 1995 and is only the second of her descent to appear in the magazine, after Paulina Porizkova. You can find her in nine Swimsuit issues including three covers (1995, 2000, 2006) and she is also one of the 2014 Legends, looking as gorg as ever at the age of 43. Today, we're throwing it back to Daniela's many photo shoots, including that time we made her lay in the desert sand in Tunisia and the ocean sand in Malaysia. Enjoy!
