[WATCH] Phwoar! Sunny Malta welcomes sexy swimsuit models for Sports Illustrated shoot

Malta plays host to cadre of scantily clad models for America’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue - apparently, “so much art goes into it” 


“When you have hair and you have to model in the wind, it can get really challenging…” so says one of the group of athletic models fighting the turbulent but sunny weather in Malta, as a sexy shoot gets underway against a Maltese backdrop for America’s legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. 

Indeed, the girls had their work cut out for them as they struggled against breezy conditions and the monumental task of keeping their tops on and their perfectly styled hair out of their eyes, with varying degrees of success.

Spanning postcard locations such as Valletta, Birgu, Marsaxlokk and - of course - the Azure window, a behind-the-scenes video offers some “revealing” insights into the shoot, with the models reassuring viewers that, although they modelled in, “Little quaint places the pictures are so incredible… so much art goes into it.”
