SI Swimsuit 2017 casting calls are under way, and we're already totally smitten by the beautiful babes coming through our office. 

As we sift through hundreds of gorgeous ladies to fill out our next rookie class, we're hoping you'll follow along! When we meet SI Swimsuit hopefuls, you will, too. So what are you waiting for? 

Next up is Brazilian babe Emanuela De Paula. This beach-loving beauty loves spend days by the ocean with friends, taking photos of everything from the sea to passerbyers. So what could be better than a job that sends you to the most exotic beaches in the world? Emanuela hopes one day to join the SI Swimsuit family and make one of her many dreams come true!
