Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Shot in Dominican Republic
A few weeks ago we were a-guessing as to what sand the ladies of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue would be rolling around in for this year's edition and while we had some good ideas about who would be featured in the photos, we still had no good idea where the shots were going down. Until now.
Tipster CI told us:
It comes out on Feb 10 and is being shot in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to Tatiana Golovin and her website golovin-attitude.com for news!
Tatiana is one of those Moscow-born tennis players who will model for the issue. And we went to her website so you don't have to--it's all in French.
This should give a big boost to Dominican Republic tourism which previously only had family-friendly spots and cock-fighting to entice visitors. NYC-based models or folks looking to escape the cold can take Jet Blue to get there. However, just remember the Maxim Bungalows Hotel is no longer affiliated with Maxim magazine.
Have any more tips about location shoots or who will make the magazine this year? Fill us in!
