50 Greatest Swimsuit Models, Alumni


This week, Sports Illustrated will be counting down its Top 50 all-time models, 10 per day, with the winner being revealed on Friday in conjunction with SI’s Summer of Swim Event at Wynn Las Vegas. Check back all week as the list is revealed.

COMPLETE LIST: No. 50-41 | No. 30-21 | No. 20-11 (coming Thu.) | No. 10-1 (coming Fri.)

40. Daniella Sarahyba

Hometown: Rio de Janiero, Brazil
Years in Swimsuit issue: 6 (2005-10)
Social: TwitterInstagram

Modeling runs in the family for Sarahyba. Her mother, Mara Lucia Sarahyba, was a successful model in her native Brazil, and there’s little doubt she passed those genes down to Daniella, who has been canvased in many of the Swimsuit issues’ body painting series, and also earned a contract with esteemed modeling agency IMG.

Random Fact: Sarahyba began her modeling career as a toddler, making the cover of Pais & Filhos, a Brazilian parenting magazine, when she was three years old.

Josie Maran is number one. Second top with Melissa Keller, third Jessica Van Der Steen...


Okay Genevieve Morton and Jessica Gomes are easily top 5.  Nina Agdal is overrated.

I refuse to believe a straight male is compiling this list.


how jessica gomes is outside the top 10 is beyond me
