UPDATE: Sorry to all, but mostly to myself, but Sports Illustrated has decided they no longer wish to share these beautiful photographs of beautiful models so they had to be removed. Please forgive the wet floors, that's from my tears of sorrow.

Okay, let's put this into perspective. This is day one post-release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2012. Just a few hours old. As more and more hot bikini content spews forth in the next few days and weeks, even months and years as with some of the more buried outtakes, we'll certainly revise our favorite favorites. But, for today, here is who struck us as 'OMG, I must suntan lotion this woman now!'
Nina Agdal, we told you this was her year and starting out with this ridiculously hot SI photoshoot, it's a rocket launch for sure (pictures above);
Anne Vyalitsyna, just plain all-around hotness in a bikini, or less;
Alyssa Miller, if you're a true brunette love, she just might be your favorite;
Jessica Gomes, vastly vastly underrated swimsuit and lingerie model;
Cintia Dicker, just that unique ginger 'ooh' quality that makes her standout with sextastic in just about anything;
Irina Shayk, whose body I went to fondle until my hands fall off from overuse.
Honestly, I'd kill many men and even some innocent kittens to have an hour of alone time on a private beach with any one of these so-sweet hot ladies. Good on you, Sports Illustrated.
And, remember, this is just day one. Enjoy.
