She's cool, cultured and chic...must be blonde-beauty Erin Heatherton! (Actually, these words describe every single one of our SI Swimsuit models, but work with me here...)

She may be a SI Swimsuit rookie, but Erin Heatherton is far from a newbie in the world of modeling. Discovered in Miami in 2006, the Skokie, Ill., native is best known for her flawless figure, long blonde locks and irresistible freckles.

With a resume that includes walking the Victoria's Secret runway a whopping six times, acting on the big screen, and posing for some of the world's largest fashion publications, Erin has just about done it all. And in January, the 25-year-old put the cherry on top when she nabbed the title as brand ambassador for Curve Sport. A former basketball player, Erin is both a competitor and avid sports fan, making her work with Curve a natural fit.

Watch the video above to learn more about Erin's discovery, first shoot with SI, and involvement at the first-ever SI Swimsuit Fan Festival!
