When you sit back and enjoy photos of the ladies of SI Swimsuit in body paint, do you ever wonder what goes into making those "suits" look SO real? If the answer was yes, then you're in luck! 

Rookie Rose Bertram was up for the challenge of a SI Swimsuit body paint shoot—even with a 12:15am wake up call!—which ultimately took upwards of 14 hours to complete. But with multiple nap opportunities, we wouldn't consider this one of the hardest jobs in the world...

Looking flawless in a red-white-and-blue, star-print bikini replica, Rose then proceeded to make all of our dreams come true on the beaches of St. John. With her sexy curves and unforgettable curls, Rose in body paint made for a shoot we'll never forget.

Go ahead and take a look for yourself. We promise you won't regret it!
