The sexy staple has launched the careers of countless up-and-coming models and featured some of the most beautiful women to ever walk this earth in a two piece. However, the bathing beauties who have graced the issues cover have done more than just made their mark on the world of bikinis; they’ve also made some massive bank. So who’s the most successful Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover model of all time? We’re counting up their dollars and counting them down to the richest one of them all.

Last night, Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian during an epic party for her 33rd birthday. Reportedly there were balloons, doves, a 15 carat diamond ring, an orchestra, Lana Del Rey on the radio and Kris Jenner. The only thing missing was baby North.
Is Kate Winslet‘s third pregnancy keeping her down? Is Zach Galifianakis going to be a dad? Did Paul Giamatti let it slip that Spider-Man will be facing down the Sinister Six?
Oh, dear. We really hope there’s a good explanation for this one: Rob Evans, the man who’s been prettying up the America’s Next Top Model judges’ panel since Nigel Barker’s departure, is wanted for felony assault with a deadly weapon, according to TMZ. The British model apparently beat up a guy in Beverly Hills back in March, and the alleged victim wound up in a hospital. The fact that Evans used to be a boxer isn’t helping matters.
TMZ sources say there was a warrant out for Evans’ arrest after the incident, but they didn’t pursue it because he cooperated with police immediately. But now he’s stopped communicating with them, so they’ve sent out a “fugitive team” to get him. That part sounds fishy as hell — a guy who looks like that can’t possibly hide. Maybe it’s all a misunderstanding? Ugh. Everyone, especially you famous folks, use your words, not your fists, please. We don’t mind if that leaves us with fewer things to write about here.
Incidentally, when Tyra Banks stopped by the Steve Harvey Show last week, she adamantly denied rumors that she’s been dating 24-year-old Evans. Why the hell not? “I’m really ready to have some babies. I want babies!”

You can’t afford this hotness. Supermodel mom Alessandra Ambrosio is the lucky lady chosen to wear Victoria’s Secret’s annual multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra. Or maybe not so lucky, because it probably hurts to wear bejeweled underwear. In the past these pricey pieces of lingerie have run up to $15 million, but this year’s is valued at a more modest $2.5 million…because there’s a recession and all. The 2012 Floral Fantasy lingerie gift set is decked out with amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and a massive white diamond in the center. On the downside, it’s dry clean only.
“It was perfect for me,” says Alessandra, who will hit the catwalk in the stellar ensemble this November at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic.” The new mother found out she was the chosen angel just three weeks after giving birth to her son, Noah. “I just wanted to scream,” she says of the big moment. “But I won’t lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode.” She’s spent the last five months doing some serious workouts to lose the baby weight, and if these photos are anything to go by, we’d say she’s been pretty successful.

The Marchesa show was always going to be a big draw since it’s such a celebrity favourite. We were hoping for a couple more A-Listers, but hey, Fashion Week’s such a packed schedule that this lot is just fine. Kanye West, check. Kim Kardashian, looking strangely like Big Bird, check! Tyra Banks … check. But hold up. That smizing is really beginning to freak us out. Like … this is something right out of The Exorcist now. That — and her hair. What can we say about her hair? We can’t. We’ll just let you gaze in wonder at the photograph below.
Yeah. That. It is unreal. It goes beyond volume. And it’s as if she’s smizing right at us! How much more perfect could it get? Others present at the show were a ladylike Stacy Keibler, a very excited Sarah Hyland, a casual chic Rachel Roy, a retro-looking Jenna Dewan and Michelle Trachtenberg who looked like her Gossip Girl character, Georgina Sparks in sunglasses. Check them all out in the gallery below. Werk!

The only thing hotter than the weather this sweltering July was our Twitter feed! Celebrities of every stripe were tweeting teasingly scandalous photos that were not always safe for work (unless you work for VH1 Celebrity, in which case, it’s cool). It seemed like there were more super sexy skin-filled Twitpics in July than in the rest of 2012 combined! Maybe it’s global warming?
Selena Gomez modeled a selection from her new bikini style line, while Adrianne Curry modeled her BDSM-inspired Comic-Con outfits. Rihanna tweeted so many sun-drenched photos from her never-ending Mediterranean vacation that we’re starting to imagine that we were there. Some celebs, like Aubrey O’Day, Heidi Klum and, of course, Coco, tweeted up-close and personal pics of their favorite body parts (spoiler alert, it was usually boobs or butts) and reps from the Kardashian Klan went more for the full body shots. The Spears sisters both weighed in with bangin’ bikini shots of their own, and High School Musical soul sisters Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens did the same.
We had hot moms like Jada Pinkett-Smith, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Minnillo and Jessica Alba. And Kris Humphries’ rumored GF Myla Sinanaj shared a pic to prove she’s gonna be a hot mom in the near future. And of course models like Candice Swanepoel, Bar Refaeli and Tyra Banks turned even the most humble Instagrams into glam shots worthy of GQ and beyond. If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the gallery below. But if you want the sexiest Twitpics of July 2012, you’re in the right place!
