[PHOTOS] 17 Models of the 2011 SI Swimsuit Issue Revealed

We’re officially one step closer to knowing which stunning swimsuit model will own the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.  Friday night, SI unveiled the 17 featured models that will fill the pages of the overly-anticipated issue set to hit stands Tuesday, February 15th.   The SI /DirecTV selection show provided a few surprises, most notably the absence of COED fave Daniella Sarahyba.  But with returning veterans like Brooklyn Decker, Irina Shayk and Julie Henderson, alongside some of 2010’s hottest rookies and this year’s batch of newbies,  2011 is shaping up to be the sexiest edition yet.
