We love to see SI Swimsuit models chumming it up. Molly Sims and Heidi Klum did just that when the two reunited at the Fashion Trust U.S. Awards in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Sims made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2000 and went on to be featured in seven photo shoots through ’06. Klum made her first appearance in the magazine in 1998 and had a total of 14 features throughout her time with the brand. Both women were featured in the SI Swimsuit Issue in 2000, ’01, ’02, ’04 and ’06.

The day after the awards, Sims, 49, shared a photo alongside Klum, 49, model Alessandra Ambrosio and photographer Stewart Shining on Instagram. Both women worked with Shining throughout their tenure at SI Swimsuit.

“Also loved our Y2K reunion… @stewartshining @heidiklum and @alessandraambrosio 💋,” Sims wrote in part of her caption.

Klum wore a silver metallic gown from Kate Barton’s fall-winter 2023 collection, while Sims opted for an all-black leather look styled by Sonja Christensen. Her long back trench by Khaite was the star of the ensemble.

The event was held Tuesday to recognize businesses, designers and talent in the fashion industry. Sims’s collage post also included a snapshot with her Lipstick on the Rim podcast co-host Emese Gormley, several photos of the venue and other party pics.
