Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Camille Kostek’s bikini-season essentials

Ever wonder what your favorite celebrities buy when they’re browsing their favorite boutique or shopping online late at night? Welcome to Six Picks, where we ask stars to spill their style and beauty must-haves — so you can shop like you’re famous, too.

This year marks Camille Kostek’s fifth modeling for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, but she’s not resting on her laurels.

“I cannot believe five years has gone by. The most exciting part about this whole thing is that I still feel like a rookie,” the blond beauty — who’s been dating Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski since 2015 — tells Page Six Style.

“I always just have this rookie mentality of excitement. You’re not promised a spot, and so when you get that call, it’s so relieving and exciting.”

For the 2022 issue, Kostek posed in her “extended home” of the US Virgin Islands, where her grandmother and aunt both live, and sported a series of swim styles in “very neutral, earthy tones.”

“[I wore] a bunch of suits that were neutrals and cream and pearl colors and browns. And I was so happy, because I’ve been designing a swimsuit line and I’ve been so drawn to neutrals specifically,” she said, adding that there were plenty of midriff-baring looks on the menu.

“MJ [Day, SI Swimsuit’s editor] has called me ‘Crop Top Cami’ since the rookie year [in 2018]. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of wearing crop tops,” Kostek quipped. “Definitely the best part about the shoot is I always feel like me. I don’t have to pretend to be somebody that I’m not. And I just felt my best.”
