Since it was first published in 1964, SI Swimsuit has been home to the world's most beautiful women. Every year, hundreds of models stop by the SI office in the hopes that their dream will come true and they'll land a coveted spot in the issue. Such was the case earlier this month when word spread of a Philadelphia native coming in to meet the editors.
