Sports Illustrated shot part of its much-awaited swimsuit edition in Boracay, reports ABS-CBN News. Models Esti Ginzburg, Christine Teigen, Kate Upton and Jessica White were photographed in the popular island, as well as Russian cover girl Irina Shayk who also shot some of her photos in Hawaii.
Of Boracay, Shayk said, "It's amazing (and) beautiful. It's paradise." She added, "My favorite photos so far are the (ones taken during) the sunset. It's so beautiful—the sky turning to yellow and pink and red, and it stays for so long. The sun doesn't go down very fast."
According to ABS-CBN News, the models were flown in by Philippine Airlines and they stayed at Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa.
