As usual, the 2015 Swimsuit Illustrated Issue does not disappoint at all. In the beautifully shot pages, you will see bikini shots of the sexiest women in the world. These include: Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Irina Shayk, Lily Aldridge, Emily Ratajkowski and even athletes like Caroline Wozniacki. However, there are also some stunning rookies who are just making their debut this year in the SI Swimsuit Issue. There are seven rookies in total, and they come from different parts of the globe including Australia, Belgium, Denmark and of course, the United States. These rookies are all unique and special in their own right, but the one thing that links all of them together is that they are all unbelievably HOT! So it’s time to prepare your eyes and enjoy the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue rookies below:
7 Rose Bertram
The one thing that we really like about the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is how it features a bevy of beauties from all over the world. One of the new faces is the exotic hottie from Belgium named Rose Bertram. She is 20-years-old and she currently resides in the City of Lights, Paris. Apart from having an amazing physique, she has very unique features: bouncy blonde curls and piercing jade green eyes. Trust us, you won’t find too many models out there with a similar look to Rose’s. She admits that even though she eats very healthy foods, she does have a soft spot for Belgian waffles and fries. You’d also be interested to know that she’s currently dating a Dutch soccer player named Gregory Van der Wiel who plays in France’s premier football league.
6 Hailey Clauson
Hailey Clauson is a hot model currently making a transition from the world of high fashion, luxury runways and catwalks to the swimsuit modeling world. The 19-yr-old Californian is a true bombshell and she has been modeling since the age of 13. She moved to NYC at the age of 15, and began working for fashion week and participating in runway shows for some of the biggest luxury brands. She got the chance to travel the world as a fashion model, so it’s fair to say that she has done more in her young age than most people have accomplished in a lifetime. When interviewed about making the transition from the catwalk to swimsuit shoots, this is what she said: “When you’re in the modeling world, you are asked to bring a lot of different characters, but when you’re shooting for Sports Illustrated, you really get the chance to be yourself.”
5 Erin Heatherton
Erin Heatherton is a 26-yr-old American model, and this year, she also happens to be one of the ultra-sexy models in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She’s already a well-known model on the scene and is mostly known for all her work with the global lingerie brand, Victoria’s Secret. She’s originally from Skokie, Illinois, and in her earlier years she was very athletic indeed. Erin was a formidable basketball player in high school and she jokingly admits that her father wanted her to be a tenacious defensive player like Dennis Rodman.
Interesting tidbit: Erin also happens to be godmother of fellow model Lily Aldridge’s daughter, Pearl.
Appearing in the SI Swimsuit Issue is a definite way to boost a model’s career. The exposure and views this issue receives are quite astronomical, and it can change a model’s life forever. Solveig Mork Hansen is one of the debutantes in the 2015 issue. She’s a 19-yr-old Nordic beauty and she is absolutely stunning. She hails from Give, Denmark and she grew up on a farm. Interesting fact; she’s been riding horses like a pro since the age of 3. She also admits that she’s a certified nerd; she’s totally in love with Harry Potter and Sci-fi books.
3 Kelly Rohrbach
At the age of 25, the sexy model Kelly Rohrbach also makes her debut in this year’s Swimsuit Issue. She’s 25-yrs-old and hails from Greenwich, CT. Lately, you may have been seeing her name in the tabloids because she’s being rumored to be dating the ultimate Hollywood playboy, Leonardo DiCaprio. The two were apparently spotted hanging out at the recent Coachella concert. She attended Georgetown University and excelled in Acting as well as Golf. She ended up loving acting more and moved to LA after college. She quickly got several recurring roles on TV shows, and this SI issue truly marks her full debut into the world of modeling.

2 Robyn Lawley
Another rookie for this year, the lovely Robyn Lawley is a stunning model that might just be the people’s favorite in this year’s SI Swimsuit Issue. She’s 25-yrs-old and hails from Sydney, Australia. She has definitely had several highlights in her career. In 2011, she was on the cover of Vogue Italia, and she has also appeared in campaigns for Barneys and Ralph Lauren. In addition to being a model, Robyn also keeps busy as a prolific blogger, painter, author and even a DJ. Her DJ name is “Robelle” and she’s played packed gigs at fashion week and admits that one of her favorite musicians of all time is Trent Reznor.
1 Ashley Smith
At the age of 24, the beautiful Ashley Smith is also making her debut in the SI Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She might also be the one rookie out of this group with the most unique character and attitude. She was actually discovered at a hardcore punk rock show for a band. She is a self-admitted music addict, and she grew up in a sleepy Texas town called Longview where it was all about ranches, BBQ's and pick-up trucks. Ashley felt she was different from all the other people around her, so naturally, she fell in with the punks and goths. She definitely has a wild side, but most guys will say that makes her even sexier. She also happens to design a line of clothing for the popular surf wear/street wear brand, RVCA.
