Soccer Star In Body Paint For Swimsuit Issue

February 11, 2012 by staff 

Soccer Star In Body Paint For Swimsuit Issue, Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue long ago should have been renamed the Bikini Issue, because most of the photos are of mega-gorgeous women wearing as little as possible.

And now U.S. women’s soccer star Alex Morgan will take that philosophy of bare essentials a step farther, wearing only a coat of paint when this year’s edition comes out on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Morgan will be wearing a bodypaint bikini, to be specific.

Morgan will be one of three athletes to get the brush job on the pages of SI.

Here’s some of what she had to say about the shoot to

“Initially I was a little nervous, but this opportunity doesn’t come everyday. I wanted to involve my family with my decision and it helped that they were very supportive. After the initial reaction of nerves, I was so excited to start shooting, and honored to be included with such an amazing group of athletes and models.”

Added Morgan:

“It was a completely new experience and definitely took some getting used to before I felt comfortable in body paint. I had to look in the mirror every five minutes to make sure I actually had a swimsuit on.”
