Why she loves New York: All of the culture and amazing art

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-foot-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.
