Camille Kostek’s sixth consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photoshoot may have taken place around a year ago now, but the former professional cheerleader and model is not quite over it yet. We totally get it, we aren’t over it either.
Her 2023 feature in the annual issue brought her to the beautiful sand beaches of the Dominican Republic, where she posed for a Barbie-themed photo shoot in front of the lens of photographer James Macari. The trip featured a lot of stunning, bright swimsuits and, as always, Kostek’s lovable, bubbly personality.
The model was reminiscing on that very trip just the other day, and—thankfully for all of us—decided to share a little behind the scenes content from her time in the tropical destination. In the clip that she shared to her Instagram account, the 31-year-old posed in a bright pink—or should we say Barbie pink—one-piece against the trunk of some beautiful beachfront palm trees.
She posted the clip alongside the song “Confidence” by Ocean Alley, a fitting choice for the incredible video. “the song is my caption 👏🌴💕 @si_swimsuit,” Kostek wrote of the choice.
“It’s like this song was made for us! 💕,” the official Sports Illustrated Swimsuit account gushed of her apt song choice. “theme song 🎧,” the model agreed.
“Barbie! 😍💗,” a follower exclaimed of the bright pink look.
“Gorgeous 💖,” another sweetly complimented the model.
Needless to say, both her beauty and her confidence were on full display during the photoshoot—and in the short clip she just shared from the trip.
