Model Nina Agdal flaunts her flawless figure in a skimpy bikini made out of shaving cream in a racy new ad for the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The 23-year-old Sports Illustrated star, who is no stranger to posing in the buff, was completely nude aside from strategically placed Edge Shave Gel that was carefully sculpted into a bikini top and string bottoms.
‘When all you’re wearing is a bikini made from Edge Shave Gel, it’s really important that it stays in place,’ Nina said in a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, which was shared on Swim Daily. ‘It gave me a layer of protection I needed on set.’
In the ad, Nina can be seen arching her back while holding a bottle of the brand’s shave gel above her head.
Her long blonde hair is tousled to the side as she smiles for the camera. Meanwhile, her painted on bikini shows just a hint of underboob, which makes it appear as though her swimsuit is stretching with her.
In a clip from the shoot, Nina can be seen laughing as a woman on set gently paints on her bikini using a plastic knife.
It is also clear from the footage that the stunning model was flashing her derriere on set as her foam bikini only covered the front half of her body.
James Macari photographed the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50th Anniversary Issue in 2014, which happened to feature Nina alongside models Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen.
And while he has worked with the magazine for years, he admits shooting a model in a shaving cream bikini was a first for him.
‘SI has asked me to do a few crazy things in my life, but people are going to be shocked,’ he said.
This is, however, not the first time that such a saucy stunt has been attempted.
The provocative shoot is very similar to the iconic scene from hit 1999 movie Varsity Blues, in which actress Ali Larter’s character covered her breasts and vagina in whipped cream in order to seduce football player Jonathan Moxon, played by James Van Der Beek.
Although Nina’s shaving foam swimsuit didn’t feature the same cherry nipples, the similarities are still striking.
