Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Countdown: Thailand Fling

Elle Macpherson puts the HOT in summer fling!  For the final of Elle Macpherson’s three consecutive Sport’s Illustrated covers, the blond bombshell travels around the world to the gorgeous white beaches of Phuket, Thailand.  From an oh-so-sexy black one piece, a floral lei top and even harem pants, Elle can make ANYTHING look sexy.

Elle, along with Paulina PorizkovaNaomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, quickly became a part of the new generation of supermodels.  In 1994, Macpherson left her agency to form her own company; Elle Macpherson Inc.  She also launched her lingerie collection ‘Elle Macpherson Intimates’ in partnership with Bendon Limited Apparel. The highly successful partnership was among the first instances of a crossover between a model and a fashion label. Currently, Macpherson hosts and executive produces NBC’s reality competition series Fashion Star.
