The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is the latest installment for the magazine and promises to offer plenty of great looks at some of the most beautiful women this planet has to offer.

This year's version has international appeal because of the many places the photo shoots took place.

Models can be seen strutting their stuff in places like China, Las Vegas, Antarctica, Namibia, Spain, Australia, Bahamas and Chile.

Each location is perfectly captured and the models' swimsuits are on point in regard to matching their surroundings.

Let's take a closer look at some of the hottest photos from the SI 2013 Swimsuit magazine.

Kate Upton—Antarctica

Antarctica is normally one of the coldest spots on the planet, but Upton did a great job heating it up. If those polar ice caps weren't set to melt before, this photo at least got the process started.

Upton is shot with barely anything on, but whatever is covering her is white.

Matching her white bottoms, Upton is holding a hand warmer over the top of her body to cover herself. Apparently, no top was necessary in this photo and that's what makes it so hot.

Just when you think this beauty couldn't best herself after a stellar cover photo, Upton does exactly that in this shot. Less was certainly more in this instance.


Namibia is a country located in southern Africa and can be viewed as a warm-climate location. But the temperature there wasn't the only thing hot about the country.

Adaora graced this issue in an impressive way and the first thing you will notice about this model is her incredible beauty.

In this photo, Adaora is shot wearing nothing but a bikini bottom and an arm bangle. But this gorgeous woman leaves nothing to the imagination as she nearly bares all up top.

The only things separating us from seeing everything are two well-placed arms. Despite this weak attempt at a cover up, Adaora will still have men drooling at the very sight of her.

Chrissy Teigen—Bahamas

Adding to the already perfect climate of the Bahamas, Teigen gets photographed in a body-paint swimsuit that will no doubt have people talking.

In this photo, Teigen is sporting a red top and bottom with some designs that help spice it up.

Not only do we get a great shot of what this woman is working with up top with a crossing-style suit, but this from behind shot also displays the great artwork done with this swimsuit that is drawn on to look like it is riding up on Teigen.

As if we didn't need to see anymore skin, this shot of Teigen gives us all the skin we'll ever need.
