Chrissy Teigen, Gigi Hadid, and the Entire Fleet of Sports Illustrated Models Have Taken Over Miami

Giving us major style envy.

Here are two important reasons to head to Snapchat today: models and bottles! This year's Sports Illustrated models flew down to Miami and they documented a very boozy, two-hour flight here on Snapchat Discover. Gigi Hadid shows us that she was, indeed, a Nicki Minaj impersonator in another life, Sports Illustrated editor MJ Day learned how to Dab, and Hailey Clauson tells us the tragic story of how she lost her unicorn float named "Corny" in Turks and Caicos.

The gals flew down to Miami for Swim Beach, a fan-filled event currently taking place in South Beach. Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigan signed copies of Sports Illustrated for fans, Chanel Iman literally climbed over a table to greet them, Nina Agdal interviewed attendees about their most shocking beach pickup lines, and Samantha Hoopes gave one very lucky man a shave. For an event filled with so many gorgeous, high profile models, it was surprisingly calm.

At night they all celebrated the release of the issue with a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 Swim BBQ party, where Ashley Graham owned it in a sheer black dress, Gigi Hadid wore a very Balmain-like Herve Leger mini, and Nina Agdal showed everyone how to do a leather romper right. John Legend accompanied Chrissy Teigan and inspirational Etsy rapper Wiz Khalifa was said to have performed. Relish in the above tidbits from yesterday's events and watch the SI models on Snapchat until the 24 hours are up.
