SASI Swimwear 2009 cover girl

2009-10-19 14:39

Her name is Catrinel Menghia and it's a metaphysical anomaly that the SASI covers don't spontaneously combust with all that hotness.

Before inducing numerous male heart attacks and female fits of jealous rage, Catrinel was a Romanian high jumper.  She was spotted at 16 walking out of an athletics stadium and traded sweaty gym gear for designer outfits and miniscule bikinis. A fair trade, methinks.

Catrinel leads all adoring SASI fans into 144 pages of bikini bliss, featuring 11 supermodels and the queen of summer holiday destinations, Zanzibar. Some of the other hotties featured are Wonderbra wünderkind Elbe van de Merwe, SASI favourites Dominique Piek and Genevieve Morton and newbies Lyndall Jarvis, Shashi Naidoo, Shane van der Westhuizen, Marzaan Kalis and Tanya Manganyi. So much skin, so little fabric...

Catch Swimwear TV on M-Net on the 20th of October  at 21h30 for behind the scenes footage of the magazine shoot.

Meet Catrinel Menghia. Stop drooling.
