In 2015, Erin Heatherton made her first appearance in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Believe it or not, she had two photoshoots with the iconic brand that year. 

For starters, Heatherton had a regular photoshoot in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. She also had a chance to participate in a "Body Paint" photoshoot. 

The "Body Paint" series is one of the most popular photoshoots in the swimsuit world. 

Although it's not an everyday experience for models, Heatherton looked like a natural during her "Body Paint" photoshoot. 

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's official YouTube account shared a behind-the-scenes look of Heatherton's photoshoot. 

Heatherton also appeared in the 2016 issue. That photoshoot took place in Zanzibar.

Here are some photos from Heatherton's photoshoots with the SI Swim team:
