It's that time of year again! SI Swimsuit Casting Call season is upon us, and you're in for a real treat. For the first time ever, we held an open casting call to find our next big star. After receiving thousands of Instagram submissions from women around the world, we invited 35 finalists to SI's Brooklyn offices for an in-person interview and photo shoot. Up next is Aussie babe Lauren Walshe.

Since moving to New York City, Lauren has been on a mission to become a model, and has been working in the industry full time for the last 12 years. When she's not traveling the world for work, you can find her studying up to becoming a personal trainer and doing her best to inspire women around the world to feel confident in their own skin. You know we love that! 

Enjoy these photos of Lauren, and be sure to keep coming back to Swim Daily for more SI Swimsuit 2018 Casting Calls!​
