Bare essentials Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Vibes Festival brings models to Houston Sports Illustrated pools swimsuit models for festival [...] contrary to social-media reports, Hailey Clauson did not suffer a wardrobe malfunction during her recent Sport Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 photo shoot in Indonesia. The 6-foot-tall model appears in the magazine's pages wearing an altered one-piece swimsuit that leaves the right-side of her torso uncovered.

Former cover models Chrissy Teigen, Christie Brinkley, Hannah Jeter, Ashley Graham and Nina Agdal also will be in attendance, along with Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman; models Hannah Ferguson and Rose Bertram; Brinkley's daughter models, Sailor Brinkley Cook and Alexa Ray Joel; and the entire 2017 Swimsuit rookie class including Bianca Balti, Danielle Herrington, Kelly Gale, Lais Ribeiro, Mia Kang, Myla Dalbesio and Vita Sidorkina. The festival will feature performances by Miguel and Diplo and celebrity chef tastings with Underbelly's Chris Shepherd and Pass & Provisions' Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegal Gardner, as well as other national chefs.
