Thanks to his many years of shooting for Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue, Walter Iooss can say he’s photographed legendary models such as Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Elle Macpherson, and now…Barbie. For the 50th anniversary Swimsuit Issue, which hit stands this past Monday, Walter photographed Mattel‘s enduring feminine icon for an ad campaign appearing in the magazine and elsewhere.

“I’ve been waiting for this day with Barbie,” Walter reveals in the behind-the-scenes video produced by SI. “I’ve seen all the good ones go through the locations, but… She’s hot. Barbie’s hot. She takes instructions almost silently. That’s why she’s the best model I’ve ever worked with.”

For the full video, see below. “To watch it,” says Sports Illustrated‘s Swim Daily site, “is to witness two masters of their craft making Swimsuit history.”
