The new bikini-ridden page-turner features VS vets Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio (um, what recent pregnancy?!) and new bombshells Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lindsay Ellingson, Emanuela de Paula, Sports Illustratied cover girl Brooklyn Decker, Candice Swanepoel (who graces the Victoria's Secret Swim Catalogue cover) and a handful of other svelte beauties.
Besides the controversial topless bikini, the Summer 2010 swim collection includes string bikinis with fringes and sequin embellishments, one-pieces with creative cutouts, lots of bandeau tops, as well as asymmetrical styles and ruffle detailng carried over from the awards season red carpet.
Despite all of the delectable choices, Miranda Kerr revealed to StyleList that she does have her favorites.
"I love the traditional triangle bikini or a Brazilian bottom!" she told us in an exclusive chat. "I love the super hot, bright neon colors that Victoria's Secret has this season; they look great on the beach and lounging next to the pool."
However, not all of us can carry off a simple triangle bikini like Kerr, which the model understands.
"Everyone has different body shapes so it's best to find a swimsuit that flatters your individual shape, " she advises. "For example, if you have a small bust, a halter bikini top with slight padding will look best. Most importantly, with the right attitude and confidence any swimsuit will look good."
And the right workout plan. To get toned for her VS Swim shoot, Kerr says she keeps her exercise regime fairly consistent, explaining that it "always involves a mix of yoga, low-impact cardio, resistance and functional exercise, combined with high energy training such as boxing or running."
Kerr plans on hitting the surf of her native Australia this summer and tell us that her beach must-haves include "an iPod, sunglasses, water, organic rosehip oil and a great book," along with a killer soundtrack.
"I always love a bit of Kings of Leon, Alexi Murdoch, Muzik City, Phoenix," she says. "And you can never go wrong with Dr. Dre!"
As readers flip through the Victoria's Secret Swim Catalogue, they might be quick to comment on the thinness of the models, some of whom the industry dubs as "curvy."
Kerr herself has received flack for her skinny body in the past, but says she's willing to accept the criticism.
"As soon as you step into the public eye you need to take responsibility for the people you are influencing," she says. "Body image is something that the majority of young women struggle with and I do think it is important that models are seen to be healthy and at a weight that works for their body type."
To promote the brand's "Build Your Own Bikini" program, Kerr stars in the cheeky "Bikini Mixer" video, where she does endless two-piece quick changes (on the beach), driving home the numerous mix and match separates Victoria's Secret Swim is offering this season. And we love the creative way Kerr rides off into the sunset. Check it out below.
