Now, some of you will remember Lauren’s name from the now-cancelled South African edition of the SI Swimsuit Issue, so you should be ecstatic that you’ll get to see her again. One of the things that’s so great about the South African model is that she’s actually relatively curvy–we can only hope that the editors don’t photoshop or airbrush her too much.
You’ll see in the photos below what we mean. Is she hot enough to be named the Rookie of the Year 2014? We’ll let you decide that for yourself.
Age: 28 | Nationality: South African | Measurements: 34D-26-36
