Hailey Clauson returns for her seventh SI Swimsuit Issue this year, and this spread might just be her best one yet. The 28-year-old, who landed the cover of the magazine in 2016 just one year after her debut, posed for the ’23 SI Swimsuit Issue in the Dominican Republic, where she was photographed by James Macari.

Clauson shared a stunning image from her full gallery on Instagram on Wednesday. In the pic, she sprawled out in the sand wearing a hot pink Barbiecore-inspired swimsuit by NAU BIKINIS.

“SI SWIMSUIT 2023💥👙🌴,” she captioned the photo, while tagging Macari and SI Swimsuit editor in chief MJ Day, as well as her entire glam team on location.

“Beside myself!!!” three-time SI Swimsuit model Tanaye White gushed in the comments.

“So so beautiful!💘💘💘,” Zosia Nowak applauded.

“Forever my favorite swimsuit model ❤️🙌,” another fan added.

While Clauson has been modeling since the age of 13, she took on another role earlier this year as co-owner and creative director of Los Angeles–based boutique modeling brand Margaux Agency.
