The wait is (kind of) over! 

SI Swimsuit took over One World Observatory this morning to announce our second year of fan festivals, and with that came an inconspicuous announcement of our first three models in this year's issue, too! Joining us on top of the world were the gorgeous Erin Heatherton and Emily DiDonato, as well as a life-size flyer featuring Russian babe Irina Shayk.

Erin and Emily spoke on the topics of returning to SI Swimsuit, their excitement over meeting fans again this year, and about body diversity and true beauty, messages which SI works to encourage every year. 

It's true! Ronda Rousey will wear body paint in SI Swimsuit 2016

And while we can't reveal any new photos just yet (be patient!), we invite you to take a look back at some of Irina, Erin and Emily's best moments from SI Swimsuit 2015. Trust us—it'll make the wait much more bearable!
