When we launched the first-ever off-season Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot—Summer of Swim—we knew it was going to be a success. What we didn't know was just how positive the SI Swimsuit faithful would respond!  

GOOD NEWS—we were able to twist a few arms and gather up more images of the stunning Hannah Ferguson. Photographed by Nicholas Routzen at the Trump Soho in late April, the photo story features shopable and wearable swimsuits just in time for summer.

“With such a world-renowned franchise, we have a unique opportunity to bring the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit experience to our fans all throughout the year – not just with the issue launch in February," said our own MJ Day, assistant managing editor at Sports Illustrated. "With the start of the summer, what better way than to bring incredible swimwear designers and models to our millions of fans. Thousands of women look to our annual Swimsuit issue for the season’s hottest trends (with most of the featured swimwear sold out in a matter of weeks), so we recognized there was a need for swimwear that our fans can shop now.”

A Texas native and self-proclaimed Southern belle, Hannah is best known for her editorial and commercial work for names like Hamptons Magazine, GUESS, Galore Magazine and Triumph lingerie. She was also the star of one of Carl's Jr.'s infamous commercials for their Texas BBQ Thickbuger, and has appeared in our own little glossy two times.  

Photographer Nicholas Routzen is no newbie to working with models and has also had his work featured in a plethora of well-known titles like Nylon Guys, ELLE Mexico, Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazine, just to name a few. His portfolio spans ad campaigns with labels like Chanel, bebe, and Halston, as well as video work and personal projects. And can we just say, his work with SI Swimsuit did not disappoint, as expected.
