Gigi was also captured for a behind the scenes video of her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shoot where she talked about her experience shooting for the third straight year. “It’s the one trip and job that I look forward to. Not only because of the people that I get to work with, but it’s always fun to see the next adventure you get to take with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit,” the swimsuit model says.
Gigi also talked about music on the set, “When I’m modeling, music is a really big part for me. I think finding a really good soundtrack is so important because it changes the whole energy on the set.”
