Hailey Clauson is an SI Swimsuit veteran. Luckily for her followers, the model is sharing behind-the-scenes content and sneak peeks on Instagram of her seventh SI Swimsuit photo shoot. She’s currently on location for this year’s issue in the Dominican Republic.

“BTS with @si_swimsuit for the 2023 issue🖤🌊🤍,” Clauson captioned a trio of photos of herself in a black-and-white plaid bikini set, which she accessorized with chunky gold earrings.

Clauson tagged SI Swimsuit’s editor in chief, MJ Day, hairstylist Adam Maclay and makeup artist Tracy Murphy in the Feb. 7 post. 

“INSANE 😍😍😍,” commented SI Swimsuit model Brooks Nader, who just wrapped her own 2023 photo shoot in the tropical location.

We couldn’t agree more. Clauson’s curly hair was tossed up into a bun and she posed with her arms up and eyes closed in the first photo of the series. The second pic, taken from the back, showed the 27-year-old getting her glam touched up, while the final snap was a shot of the gorgeous beach view.

In a joint IG post a day earlier, the official SI Swimsuit account and Clauson shared a stunning set of photos and videos of the 2016 cover star enjoying her time on set.

Clauson wore a bright pink textured bikini from Haus of PinkLemonaid in one collage photo and grooved to music in a magenta plunge-neck one-piece in the next. In the final video, she wore a black-and-white color-blocked one-piece with a matching floppy hat and danced for the camera.

“You guessed it, we’re on set with Hailey Clauson for her 2023 SI Swim shoot today,” the brand wrote. “👙 Swipe to see some sneak peeks and check our stories for even more.”
