The "Body Paint" photoshoots that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit conducts are considered iconic by most fans.   

In 2012, professional golfer Natalie Gulbis had the chance to participate in this photoshoot. 

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shared a behind-the-scenes look at Gulbis' photoshoot on YouTube.

Check it out:

As you'd expect, Gulbis was excited to be a part of a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

"Anyone who has ever done swimsuit or fashion modeling, or as an athlete, just to be invited is a huge honor. It’s something I’ve wanted to be a part of for quite a few years, and I was so excited when they asked me to be a part of it," Gulbis said, via Golf Channel
