SI Swimsuit Issue 2009: No Marisa??

Posted by: The Pinupmeister

Well, the good news is that the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is available on newsstands as we speak. That bad news is that Marisa Miller isn’t one of the featured models.

No disrespect to the lovely ladies who are featured in SI Swimsuit 2009, it’s just that Marisa Miller happens to be my all-time favorite SI Swimsuit model. IMO, she’s an 11 and you can’t have a “real” SI Swimsuit Issue without her. Then, again, nobody called and asked my opinion.

I’m happy to report that the 2009 issue isn’t completely Marisa-less. Harley-Davidson features her in their ad and offers a free 16-month calendar of Marisa digging the new V-Rod Muscle bike.

Anyway, enough of my carping. As usual, the SI Swimsuit crew has put together an amazing collection of photos of gorgeous women in exotic settings. The reason I continue to buy the SI Swimsuit Issue every year is that it’s the gold standard for swimsuit photography. I’ve checked out some of the wannabes and there’s just something about SI’s offering that makes the others look like amateurs.

Obviously, the models have a lot to do with it, but the models in the other mags are hot, too. I believe the difference is the photographers. The SI photographers are the best in the world, in my opinion, at making beautiful women look spectacular.

Now, if they could just find a way to get the magazine to open flat and not hide significant parts of some photos in the crease!
