Sports Illustrated is also hosting invitation-only events in New York and Miami. In New York, guests will attend an exclusive red carpet event at Brookfield Place in NYC. In Miami, a barbecue, concert, and a rooftop after-party are scheduled for February 17th at the new 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach.

The 2016 Swimsuit cover model has not been announced yet, but SI has released a video to tease the unveiling. The model’s faces are edited out of the video.

1 Hotel & Homes, located on a full city block on Collins Avenue, has views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline. The flagship hotel features four swimming pools with views of the ocean, fully-stocked cabanas, a 24-hour fitness center, and three restaurants, headed by chef Tom Colicchio.
