Remember When: Sports Illustrated In 1995

February 20, 2024 | 0 Comments

It has been 29 years since Sports Illustrated released its swimsuit issue featuring supermodels, including Rebecca Romijn, Ashley Richardson, and Cheryl Tiegs, posing for shots in different locations throughout Bermuda.

The multi-page spread entitled “Basking in Bermuda” was shot by Ron Labbe, with the text accompanying the photos including captions such as “There’s splendor in the grass near Tobacco Bay when Daniela lies down on the job in a Karla Colletto bikini.”

Another read “Manon von Gerkan takes time to reflect as she finds repose beside the pool at the Blue Horizons inn, decked out in a Lycra mesh bikini by Cazimi.”

While another added “At The Reefs, a cliffside resort on Christian Bay, you never know who’s going to roll in with the tide. It might be Rebecca Romijn, who takes a dip at dusk in a nylon-spandex bikini from Gottex [pictured below]; or Vendela, who lets the early-morning sun soak through a stretch fishnet tank top and bikini bottom by Monika Tilley.

Another read “The statuesque Manon, in a satin Malia Mills bikini, makes Stockdale House, a landmark on St George’s Island, an even more popular tourist attraction.”

The swimsuit issue was conceived by Sports Illustrated editor Andre Laguerre in the early sixties to fill the winter months, a typically slow point in the sporting calendar.
