All of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition models gathered in the same location Tuesday night and somehow refrained from making the Crimson in New York City spontaneously combust.

The models were there to celebrate the release of the 2013 swimsuit edition, the best and only magazine worth reading.

While the photos inside the magazine are what really counts, here are many of the swimsuit modelsĀ holding photos of semi-nude swimsuit models.

If this is far too meta for you to comprehend, just sit back and check out these photos.
