Sports Illustrated just released their highly anticipated yearly ‘Swimsuit Edition’ and the models headed to Maimi to celebrate.

This year’s magazine was such a big deal, even Tyra Banks came out of retirement to get one of the coveted covers of the magazine’s highest selling issues.  The supermodel was so excited for her return, she even made an appearance with the rest of the models at the Miami launch party.

Many of the ladies were pictured arriving at their hotel ahead of the magazine launch. Winnie Harlow, Tara Lynn, Hailey Clauson, Kate Bock, Halima, Danielle Herrington, and Tyra were just a few cameras spotted.

Later in the day Winne, Danielle, and Jasmine Sanders stepped out for a walk around the Florida beach town.

Winnie showed off her unique skin in a midriff-showing two-piece highlighter green outfit.  Sanders matched her good friend in a similar neon green bikini top and a pair of tiny denim jeans.

The girls strolled the town and had a stop off at the beach for a few minutes where they stripped down to their bikinis.  After having a little fun in the sun the girls headed back to The W where they are all staying.

The fun didn’t stop there though. The girls grabbed some new friends and headed back to the beach later in the week to give beachgoers exactly what they wanted.

Danielle Harrington applied her sunscreen just like she does in people’s dreams.

This year’s cover featuring Tyra has been a huge success for the brand and for spreading the word of body positivity. The 45-year-old model chose to come out of retirement to reinforce her message that women of all ages can still feel AND be sexy.

During a recent interview on GMA Tyra told the hosts “There is a stereotype that only a 20-year-old woman in a bikini is hot, like once we reach a certain age, we are no longer desirable. But I want to show that modeling has no age. I’m coming out of retirement to practice what I preach.”
