Tori Praver

Though most well-known for her Sports Illustrated swimsuit modeling, Praver is also an professional swimwear designer, who most recently debuted her third swimwear collection last weekend during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. The collection featured a combination of sexy separates, one-pieces, and cover-ups that paired classic elegance with a slight bohemian flair. When she’s not designing or modeling, the 5’11” supermodel slash fashionista loves to spend her time surfing. But when she’s home in Manhattan, she’s likely hitting up some of the city’s best and most exclusive haute spots.
