Named one of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s 2017 Rookies, Bianca Balti brings her own unique brand of Italian bombshell to the iconic publication. The beauty has modeled for high fashion brands including L’Oreal, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior. Posing for the men’s magazine introduces the brunette to a whole new audience. For her shoot, Bianca posed on Sumba Island in sun-drenched images captured by James Macari.

And just today, Bianca was announced as the Rookie of the Year! The title has gone to models like Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen and Sara Sampaio. Recently, FGR got the opportunity to interview the model. Bianca told us about modeling for SI for the first time, being a mom of two, which Sports Illustrated beauty she looks up to and more!


Christie Brinkley is definitely the Sports Illustrated model I look up too most. I have now set a new goal in my life–being as beautiful and wonderful as she is when I’m in my 60s.

What is it like being a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie? How is different from your other career moves?
Being a SI Rookie is very exciting! The Sports Illustrated Swim Issue is such an iconic magazine and I have been dreaming to be a part of it. Sports Illustrated Swim is another amazing accomplishment I get to add to the list. I’m so proud of every single step of my career. SI swimsuit puts me in front of a different audience, making me more approachable and I love that!

What was the experience like on set for Sports Illustrated?
Being on set for Sports Illustrated was one of the best experience at one of the most unbelievable locations (Nihiwatu Resort in Sumba Island) with amazing people. Everyone involved was super kind, fun and very supportive. I had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented professionals, hair best make up, styling and of course, the photographers!

Did you do anything special to prepare for the shoot? Such as a specific diet or workout plan?
I didn’t do anything super specific, I try to stay healthy all year round. But I think [it’s just about] regularly working out and drinking lots of water. It also helps that I was breast feeding leading up to the shoot.

Are there any Sports Illustrated models of the past or present that you look up to?
Christie Brinkley is definitely the SI model I look up to most. I have now set a new goal in my life–being as beautiful and wonderful as she is when I’m in my 60s.

How did you get your start in modeling?
I grew up in Lodi and moved to Milan to study at a university. I was looking to make money so I began working in a supermarket. My employer told me I was wasting my talent there and I should see Bruno Pauletta, a model agent in Milan. My mom was with me that day and pushed me to give it a try. A couple of weeks later I was on my first cover and a couple of months after that, I signed an exclusive contract with Dolce & Gabbana.

What would you do if you weren’t a model?
Modeling was always a passion I had, so I’m not sure what else I would do professionally, but I would surely be a mother.

What is it like being a mom of two?
Being a mom of two while modeling makes me feel like I’m the luckiest babe in the whole world. I not only have the best job, but also the dream family! How blessed I am that when I come back from work, my daughters run to me saying they missed me?!?

New IMG Models signee Halima Aden first made headlines last month when she competed in the Miss Minnesota pageant. Aden didn't win, placing in the top 15 contestants, but her choice to wear hijab and a burkini during the swimsuit portion of the pageant threw her into the spotlight in an even more significant way. IMG announced on Wednesday that it has added Aden to its wide-ranging roster of models that already includes the likes of Gigi Hadidand Hari Nef.

A few big gigs are already on the horizon for Aden, who will make her New York Fashion Week debut at Yeezy Season 5 on Wednesday. She's also set to appear in the next issue of CR Fashion Book, and editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld has made it clear that she's a big fan. "Halima is breaking boundaries of beauty and perception by being herself," said Roitfeld in a release. "I find this incredibly inspiring, and I know she will be an icon." Roitfeld went on to reveal that Aden stars in an editorial about Paris — where "a mix of global cultures converge" — in the next issue of the magazine.

Which Bag Brand is Your Favorite Right Now?

Categories:Other Brands

Earlier this week, I found out I was getting a sizable tax refund for the first time in years, and naturally, that got my mind churning about what I should do with it. All in savings? Splurge a little bit? Splurge a lot? I’ve bought some new bedding, but here’s the real question: am I getting a new bag? And if I do, where should I start looking?

That’s what got me thinking about the titular question, after a couple days of thinking, the answer seems clear: I’d get a Gucci bag, most likely. There are a lot of brands doing things I like right now–Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga both come to mind quickly–but Gucci’s fantastical game of theme and variations with its styles, prints, details and logos just makes its designs feel, well, fun. Plus, I don’t have a Gucci bag in my collection, and that is something I’d like to change.

Not all of the brand’s bags fit my personal style or are even things I like, but that doesn’t so much matter–because of the way the brand constantly churns through new variations and ideas, it feels like there’s something for everyone, but in a way that doesn’t sacrifice the brand’s specific vision. It takes a crazy amount of new ideas to keep going at this pace, and I hope Gucci can pull it off for some time to come.
