In 2010, Abigail Clancy made her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit debut. She wore nothing but body paint for her rookie photoshoot. 

Clancy had an England soccer jersey painted on her. It was a clever way of honoring her country. 

This was a unique experience for Clancy, and as a result, she left the photoshoot with a lot of admiration for SI Swim.

"It definitely looks like clothes," Clancy said. "Even though I'm completely naked lying in front of a room of strangers, it's so weird. They fit you that perfect."

Here's a behind-the-scenes video of Clancy's photoshoot from 2010: 

To this day, Clancy remains a popular model. She has over 520,000 followers on Instagram. 

Clancy recently collaborated with Victoria's Secret for a photoshoot.
