Marisa Miller/Elite New York. Photo by MDC at Sports Illustrated 2008 Swimsuit Issue event.

The cold temperatures and snow stood out in stark contrast to the heat of the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue event held last night at 7 World Trade Center. While the press took pics of the girls in front; MDC captured the behind the scenes at the exclusive event. Photographers, model managers, family and friends mixed and mingled with VIP’s at the fab gathering. With Sky Nellor as DJ, plenty of food and drink flowing, the top floor of the tower shined over the New York nightline with the beauty of these stunning models. Check out the videos from the party and the pictures below:

    Irina reminds me ALOT of Adriana. When I walked by my mall’s Guess store I was like “OMG! Is that Adriana?!”… I was absolutely shocked when I found out it wasn’t Adriana… haha.

    But Irina is GORGEOUS!!
