"It was great to see Rebecca Romijn and Rachel Hunter," says Elle Macpherson, one of eight models who grace the all-star cover of the 2006 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. It arrives on newsstands Tuesday. "It was like a big family, since so many of us brought our kids. We all went surfing. It was so relaxed and easy," says Macpherson, who was calling while en route from Colorado to Austria for a family ski trip. (Related poll: Vote for your favorite SI cover model)
With the cover shot last summer by fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco in the Bahamas, the issue kicks off the countdown to skin-baring summer. For Macpherson, 42, who holds the record for the most SI covers (five), it was a throwback to her modeling gigs.
"It has been a long time since I modeled swimsuits," she says with a laugh. These days, it's more about running her lingerie and makeup businesses and raising two sons, ages 8 and 3. Any catfights? "We shot it quickly and with joy and grace," she says. "It was over in 15 or 20 minutes."
