Just last month, the 2022 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue was launched around the world.

Over the years, there have been a number of iconic shoots that last the test of time. One of those came over a decade ago when Marisa Miller graced the magazine's pages in noting but body paint.

Miller became one of the most iconic models in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit history in the late 2000's and her shoot from 2008 truly takes the cake.

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot.

On her Instagram page, Miller posted a throwback to her cover in 2008.

"Congratulations @danielle_herrington_ ❤️, and to all the gorgeous 2018 @si_swimsuit women! I can't believe it's been 10 since my cover. It was such a highlight in my career. Love you SI fam!"

She talked to SI Swimsuit about the shoot.

"We had a thunderstorm coming in," Marisa recalls. "There was no light. After all that work, you don't even know if you're going to get the shot. So I ran down on the beach, and we probably only shot for 10 minutes, and right after that there was torrential downpour and we all had to scatter. But we did it. We pulled it off. Every time it works out somehow."
