World Swimsuit Maldives 2015 Diary - Day 17

The World Swimsuit 2015 adventure is rapidly drawing to a close and that spurs our photographers, videographers, models and crew to greater heights hoping to capture every last possible shot and savour each minute left in the Maldives.

Today we had four models in action, a real credit to the hard work of the hair, make-up and styling ladies and the co-ordination of the videographers, photographers, social and digital teams by our production controller Genevieve Baretta, as things ran smoothly at different locations across the Paradise Island Resort.

Jacques Weyers had the team in position at sunrise to shoot Xenia Deli in some locations around the island that we were yet to explore. It's the first time Jacques has shot Xenia for World Swimsuit and the two of them instantly set to working magic magic happen in the perfect morning light.

After breakfast, Xenia headed into the sky on a parasail with Ross Hillier who photographed some high-action shots for Havaianas with our beautiful island below.

Meanwhile, the 2014 and 2015 GNC Model Search winners Bianca Koyabe and Carly Lottering squared off in a 'Shake Off' to make the best GNC Lean Shake in record time. We had so much fun filming this video with guests from the resort intrigued by the action getting involved and supporting Bianca and Carly as they went head-to-head! We won't spoil you by telling you the 'Shake Off' winner, but it's another really fun video to look out for over the coming months.

A sizzling Bridgestone shoot after lunch raised the temperature on the island a few degrees with Carly Lottering, Laura Rasiukeviciute, Xenia Deli and Bianca Koyabe looking fantastic in the black and pink swimsuits.

As we approached the golden hour around sunset, it was Lithuanian bombshell Laura Rasiukeviciute's turn in front of the lens and she absolutely took our collective breath away in a smoldering shoot with Jacques Weyers. 

Laura has been on the island for a few days, but really shone in her first opportunity to shoot with Jacques. These behind the scenes snaps giving a good idea of the magic the two of them created right up until sunset brought a productive day to an end! 

With another early day on the cards tomorrow the team grabbed an early dinner from the riches of the Paradise Island Resort restaurant before heading to bed to recharge for another exciting day tomorrow.
