“For SI we did a shoot in the Philippines in Kalibo. When we got there you had to climb a mountain to get a beautiful shot, or you had to jump into really cold water to get a shot,” said Shayk, who is dating Portuguese soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Decker, who is married to tennis star Andy Roddick and has been building an impressive acting resume, landed the cover of this year’s calendar.
She recalls the difficult time she had it making it as a fashion model, because of some obvious problems.
“The fashion world completely rejected me when I first came out – I have boobs and I have a body and I talk too much and I smile too much!” she said.
The calendar actually includes 16 months, so extra photos. It also comes with Bonus DVD.
It’s also designed to compliment the 44th Anniversary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
The now iconic issue, which was dreamed up in 1964 by editor Andre Laguerre to fill the winter months, a dead time for sports.
The first issue featured model Babette March and a five-page layout. Despite the popularity of the issue, it took the magazine 33 years to figure out that it should exclusively feature models photographed in skimpy swimsuits in exotic locals.
