It’s hard to choose the prettiest SI Swimsuit model of all time. It’s also a challenge to choose the nicest, meanest, sexiest or funniest as well. But after checking out Izabel Goulart’s kickboxing routine, which she posted to her Instagram feed last week, we feel confident calling her the toughest model to ever grace the pages of SI Swimsuit. The Brazilian model appeared in the 2011 and 2012 SI Swimsuit issue but wasn’t always the knockout she is today. “No boys for me growing up,” she told Fox News. “I was so skinny and tall. Everybody called me a giraffe. I had no boobs and no butt and nobody liked me, I was so lonely. All the boys would come to me and want advice because they wanted my friend. But nobody ever wanted me — high school was a very sad, lonely time.” Luckily for us, no one is calling her a giraffe anymore. Here are some of Izabel’s best shots from SI Swimsuit.
