The FABlife Bikini Awards: Model Behavior

(It’s that time of year again! Welcome to TheFABlife Bikini Awards, where we pit half-naked celebs against each other and you vote for the finest skin-flaunter of the summer of 2011.)

Voting is now closed. Thanks for participating!

It’s a no-brainer that models are gonna look ahhhh-mazing showing off some skin. After all, it’s what they’re paid the big bucks to do. This summer, some of the industry’s finest cat-walked across the sand in some skimpy and sexy numbers. But who deserves the big prize? Duking it out are Kate Upton, Helena Christensen, Janice Dickinson, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr!

Kate Upton Teaches You To Dougie

If this video of Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton doing the Dougie at a Clippers game last weekend had been around at the beginning of our March Celebrity Madness poll last month, she may well have beaten this year’s cover girl Irina Shayk…and given winner Chris Colfer a run for his money. While some might critique the quality of her Dougie in the above clip, it was certainly worth the attempt: she’s a lock to score next year’s SI swimsuit issue cover, unless some other aspiring model finds another dance to go viral with.

March Celebrity Madness: Round 10! Who’s Your Favorite SI Swimsuit Model?

The FABLife is playing March Celebrity Madness this month, putting 64 of our favorite stars into brackets and having you vote to decide our ultimate FAB icon. First we’ll be pitting four similar celebs against each other in the divisionals, with the winners pairing (and squaring) off in our Sweet 16 until only one is left standing. It’s just like the NCAA, except…ok, it’s nothing like the NCAA.

The ladies of Sports Illustrated‘s annual swimsuit issue are a happy, hug-ready bunch at promotional events, but only one will get to sweeten up our Sweet 16. Will it be T.O. Show vet Jessica White, Just Go With It‘s Brooklyn Decker, cover girl Irina Shayk or “Rookie Of The Year” Kate Upton?

Don’t forget, you can still vote for your favorite Jersey Shore star, Gleek, Boneworthy Brit, Man Of Action, Pop Queen, Community Cutie, Social Network Stud, Acting Ingenue and Kardashian. The polls don’t close until Friday, March 25th, so vote early and vote often!

Which Lucky Lady Will Land On The Cover Of The 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue?

UPDATE (6:25pm): Sorry Dave Letterman, but the cover’s been spoiled. If you want to know who landed it, we’ve got the winner after the jump.

While the 2011 Oscars won’t be held for another few weeks, tomorrow is the day that’s known in supermodel circles as the “Bikini Oscars.” Yes, that’s right, the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue hits newsstands tomorrow, marking a day that is loathed by shrewish librarians, dreaded by cashiers at drugstores nationwide, and revered by horny dudes the world over.

Sure, the widespread prevalence of internet porn has stolen some of the luster away from what used to be regarded as the Fourth of July for masturbators, but that doesn’t mean that Sports Illustrated has lost its power to turn famous, barely clothed supermodels into slightly MORE famous, barely clothed supermodels. Take, for instance, Brooklyn Decker, who went from being a really hot bikini model in print magazines to being a really hot bikini model in major motion pictures after she landed the cover last year! If that isn’t proof positive that landing the cover of of the Swimsuit Issue can change a gorgeous young woman’s life, I don’t know what is.

So, with that said, who will be this year’s Brooklyn Decker? Take a highly unscientific, wildly biased and possibly offensive look at the seventeen candidates for the crown in our FABLife gallery below. Will it be the woman who escorted Lady Gaga to the Grammys in an egg yesterday, Anne V? Could former Victoria’s Secret model Izabel Goulart end up being the face that launched a thousand boners? Or will Brooklyn Decker be a repeat winner, putting her well on her way towards being this generation’s Elle MacPherson? WE! DON’T! KNOW!
