Obviously, we could never come close to replicating the iconic work of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Idolized by girls and guys alike (understandably), the SI Swim covers have long been a coveted spot for aspiring models worldwide. So, we decided to make this dream come true for a handful of the lovely ladies of Nous Models in an exclusive photoshoot for Nous Zine titled – what else – Nous Illustrated!

As a token of our love and appreciation for the famous SI Swim signature looks, Nous Illustrated is a fun expression of the growing talent here at Nous Models that we are amazed by every day. Captured by one of our favorite photographers Bogdan Morozovskiy, this featurette aims to inspire you to go for the gold. We hope you love it as much as we do!

One of the things we love about social media is the ability to share and receive all kinds of images of our girls, the work that they do and the work that they inspire. When we realized how amazing these were and how many there were, we decided to pay it forward and make it a regular thing. So from now on, we’re going to be giving shout outs to the fabulous artists that have graciously chosen our girls at muses for their work. Have more than a few pieces of our girls?  You may just get your own feature on Nous Zine!  Keep up the great work guys, you inspire us more than you know!
