Pink, Barbie dolls, and supermodel Mayhem in New York for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 50th Anniversary celebration!

What happens when you combine beautiful supermodels, swimsuits, and pink?

You get a celebration. More specifically, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 50th Anniversary celebration.

The popular sports magazine celebrated its 50th birthday on Feb. 17th.  The magazine has created supermodels to date such as Kate Upton, Heidi Klum, and Tyra Banks throughout the years. Many of the magazine’s swimsuit models showed up for the event. This year, Barbie herself even showed up for the festivities. It is a party in her name, after all.
