Italian TV host Melissa Satta appeared in the 2010 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. She had the chance to honor Italy while posing for the iconic magazine. 

The makeup team for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit painted an Italy jersey on Satta for her rookie photoshoot. 

Satta was in awe of the job the SI Swim did. 

"It's a really hard job, but they did an amazing job," Satta said while on set. "It wasn't like you were naked. I had something on."
