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. From there, it wasn't easy, but we narrowed down the list our Top 15, who made history during Miami Swim Week as they walked the runway in SI's first branded swimwear show. 

So how about we get to know your Top 15 a little better? Next up is Spanish stunner Kate De Paz!

What's not to love about Kate? Her can-do attitude and confidence immediately drew us in as we watched her hilarious #SISwimSearch submission video.     

Here's one of our favorite moments with Kate from Miami Swim Week:

And here's a look at Kate in our new SI Swimsuit-branded swimwear:
