From Camille Kostek’s customized dress with special meaning and Brooks Nader’s three fabulous outfit changes to Melissa Wood-Tepperberg’s bedazzled look and Olivia Ponton’s sheer moment, this year’s SI Swimsuit models totally dressed to impress.

The women, their plus ones and members of the SI Swimsuit team celebrated the launch of the 2023 issue at the Hard Rock Hotel in New York City on Thursday, May 18, and while the red carpet photos turned out absolutely stunning (no surprise there), the night itself was one for the books. Below are our favorite looks from the night.
