The 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue will be out in a few months. However, for those who can’t wait, let’s take a look back at one of the more memorable SI swimsuit moments.
Over the years, models like Kate Upton and athletes like Lindsey Vonn have donned the SI swimsuit version in nothing more than body paint. This is a fan favorite part of the shoot and a model shoot is one to stand out.
One of the models to join the select few was McKenna Berkley. As part of the model search, Berkley made her rookie debut for SI Swimsuit in 2017 and did a coveted shoot.

After learning that she would be a part of the shoot in 2017, Berkley couldn’t stop herself from taking to social media.
“I am very excited to announce that I am a part of @si_swimsuit 2017 Model Search!!! It has been my goal to work for SI since I was young. I can’t begin to describe how I feel right now! To be a part of a magazine that celebrates such strong confident women is a dream come true. Thanks @mj_day Once in a lifetime opportunity for this. It is an honor to be appearing next to all these beautiful iconic women. Thanks to everyone at SI who made me feel like family, it was a pleasure working with you.”
