Most Famous Swimsuit Models of 2011
Let’s face it, women are hot. Some women are so well crafted by nature herself that men (and, often enough, other women) simply cannot stop looking at them, regardless of circumstance. Whether your girlfriend is standing beside you, or the boyfriend of the woman you’re enchanted by is standing right beside her, watching you watch her – you’re just too mesmerised to take the appropriate course.
As glaring as this glitch in your survival mechanism is, it’s simply nature, and you were meant to be powerless against it. Out of this class of near supernaturally beautiful women are the elite, which typically form your swimsuit models and in 2011, these ladies gave us cheer and excitement – even during the dullest and least rewarding of our days.
Irina Shayk (24)
This stunning Russian beauty was discovered while on a train ride from Chelyabinsk to Moscow and has since been featured in Intimissimi, Lacoste and Guess campaigns – not to mention some fantastic swimsuit spreads. She now holds the monumental accolade of being the first Russian model to grace the cover of a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, also making it her fifth appearance in the lauded title. Her career has certainly taken off, seeing her enter the high fashion circle, as well as making a guest appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman early this year (Feb 2011).
Megan Fox (25)
Although more recently famed for her role in the Transformers movies and her controversial comments directed at Disney, she only got that far from bouncing off of her swimsuit modelling career, and she’s certainly one of the most famous scantily clad females this year. Recognised as one of the top sex symbols of her generation, the aptly named Fox has appeared on multiple men’s magazine “hot” lists as well as major publications Maxim and FHM. She’s set to appear in the upcoming movie, “The Crossing”.
Lyndall Jarvis (25)
South African born bombshell Lyndall Jarvis is proof that the country is famous for more than corrupt politicians. Voted FHM South Africa’s sexiest woman 2009, her career has only become stronger and she recently broke into a new genre for bikini models – video games. The sultry goddess was the body model for a character in the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid series. Lyndall has vowed to remain in her home town (Cape Town) after returning from LA and has taken on presenting duties for local top rated fashion show – Top Billing.
Miranda May Kerr (28)
Australian born Kerr exploded into popularity from her successful career as a Victoria’s Secret model and was, in fact, the first Aussie girl to be involved in the Victoria’s Secret Angels enterprise. She began her modelling career at the ripe old age of 13 and has won multiple awards – coming out on top again and again. She’s appeared in countless high profile magazines and calendars, and earlier this year, was the first pregnant model for Vogue and hit the catwalk for Balenciaga’s Fall 2011 collection, as part of Paris Fashion Week, only two months after giving birth to Orlando Bloom’s baby.
