I’ll be honest, I don’t know exactly where Sports Illustrated plans to go, but in order to keep things interesting at future events, S.I. should consider the possibility of auctioning off their swimsuit models for a weekend to famous sugar daddies where, of course, all the money raised would go to various charities around the globe. It’s for a good cause, damn it!! Just think about it, some dude could be cruising around in his frickin’ yacht in Miami with Nina Agdal or one of the rookies! I’m pretty sure S.I. could easily raise a few million & possibly even create long-lasting relationships. Again, it’s all for a good cause!!

We had to show the dwarf community some red carpet love b/c let’s face it, how many gossip site out there are going to cough up money to showcase the people who’re normally the life of the party (at least certain really wild parties in Vegas from the little bit I can remember). The big red carpet premiere of ‘OZ The Great And Powerful‘ was held at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. last night. As we said in the earlier Mila Kunis post, the film’s cast includes James Franco in the lead as Oscar Diggs (“The Wizard of Oz”), along with Michelle Williams & Rachel Weisz as Evanora. We have a few cast interviews after the jump, but check the trailer below & photos from the premiere in the gallery.

James Franco was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night (Part One is below, click for: two & three):

These were snapped last night at the annual SI Swimsuit on Location event held at the Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan. Remember guys, aside from voting here on this site, make sure you head to SI & vote for your favorite rookie since that’s the official. I just voted (around 5PM EST) and Kate Bock appears to be running away with it. See the results below:
I don’t know if I have bad taste or what, but my top two were Emily DiDonato & Natasha Barnard and those two chicks are currently losing. Please help them out!
Wow, it seems like it’s been ages since we last saw Mila Kunis hit the red carpet, but the beauty was finally back to workin’ her mojo at the yellow brick premiere of her latest film “OZ The Great And Powerful” in Los Angeles. The film stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs (a.k.a. “The Wizard of Oz”). Mila plays the role of Theodora, Michelle Williams as Glinda, and Rachel Weisz as Evanora. Here’s some plot action:
Raimi’s film is set before the events of the 1939 film. Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. He thinks he’s hit the jackpot, with fame and fortune his for the taking… that is, until he meets the witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is really evil before it is too late. Putting his “magical” arts to use through illusion, ingenuity, and even a bit of wizardry, Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.[Source]
In her red carpet interview last year’s Rookie of the Year Nina Agdal revealed that it took a total 14 hours to get her body painted. I’m pretty sure body painting isn’t something she’ll want to do for the 2014 issue.
I know we’ve said this on countless occasions, a S.I. Swimsuit Body Paint Artist job has to be one of best jobs on the planet, right? Well, on second thought, I think it might be one of the most painful gigs on the planet. Just think about it: You gotta spend countless hours painting a naked swimsuit model’s body without giving off a creepy vibe, so we’re gonna assume one of pre-reqs of the job is definitely “gay male or straight female candidates only” b/c which straight dude in his right mind can last for 14 hours sitting inches away from a naked bikini model’s body?! Needless to say, we gotta get our hands on one of these artists so that we can interview them.
Anyway, Nina sounded like she was having a blast at Sports Illustrated’s big launch party in Vegas last night. Here’s a clip of her red carpet interview w/ Julie Henderson:
Amazing. It’s a pity that Cintia Dicker doesn’t try her luck at landing a Hollywood gig b/c I really think dudes would go crazy seeing a redhead with her presence workin’ on the set of a summer blockbuster. According to her Wiki, Cintia is a 26-year-old Brazilian model of German descent, so naturally, she must have a great accent (think along the lines of Alessandra Ambrosio & Adrina Lima).
These photos were snapped yesterday as part of S.I. Swimsuit Issue’s celebration in Las Vegas.
Here’s an interview with Cintia on the red carpet:
I’m a huge Jimmy Kimmel fan, so I couldn’t pass up this photo of the hilarious Guillermo, who covered last night’s S.I. Swimsuit Issue Party for Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show. It’s too bad the dude is married w/ a kid because he could really do some serious damage to at least a couple of those S.I. models!! NO JOKE!!
And yes, even though Charles Barkley & Shaq always say they have the best jobs TV, I think Guillermo has them beat. I’m sure a lot of hard work goes into what he does each night, but it just looks like he’s having the time of his life doing it. Major props to Jimmy Kimmel for creating a type of Howard Stern-esque atmosphere on his late night show. I think that’s why the show works so well.

In addition to voting for your SI Swimsuit Rookie of the Year, let’s give it up for the ladies who got their naked bodies painted and photographed. This year’s bunch of body paint models included last year’s Rookie of the Year, Nina Agdal, in addition to a bunch of obvious nipples. Go back and check out the lovely photos of all the ladies in body paint and of course, we have to give our plug to SI.com to check out all the video coverage too!
I’m sorry, but Anne V absolutely killed the red carpet carpet at last night’s 2013 S.I. Swimsuit party held at the Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Just one of our favorites from last night’s party, but it’s a pity that S.I. hasn’t dished the cover to Anne b/c she’s one of the hardest working models in the biz! WTF, S.I. editors?
Here’s an interview w/ Anne at one of last night’s events:
