It’s that time of year again: it’s officially Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition season! While you’re spending your chilly February in your sweatpants downing buckets of noodles and cookies, the models with some of the most enviable bodies in the world (perhaps only rivaled by the Victoria’s Secret Angels) are breaking out their bikinis and one-pieces and making us all reconsider our life choices. You can practically hear all of the new gym memberships being signed up for.

Last night’s celebratory red carpet for the launch of the 2016 SI Swim Edition was full of black, white, and all kinds of sheer numbers that would make anyone’s head turn, but here are the nine best-dressed ladies of the evening:

1. Gigi Hadid

I mean, obviously Gigi is on this list. She’s been everywhere lately, and her shoot for SI is stunning. She was also one of the few of the evening to wear pants, which was probably wise considering how windy it was in New York City yesterday when the event was going on.

2. Daniela Lopez

I love a good cape dress, but I’m so used to seeing long ones that a shorter one like this was a really nice surprise.

3. Megan Williams

This is just a great, perfectly-fitted pencil dress. The small cutouts on the side up the sultry factor.

4. Ashley Graham

ICYMI, Ashley Graham is the total breakout star of this year’s Swim Edition. She only just joined the class of models, and already she’s earned one of this year’s three covers. Who knows what she’ll do next.

5. Bo Krsmanovic

This was one of the more simpler looks of the night, but the slit on this piece would make Angelina Jolie proud

6. Kate Bock

At first glance this dress felt a little bit nightclub-y to me, but then I remembered that I’m a sucker for LBDs, so that thought went right out the window.

7. Caroline Kelley

Fringe still isn’t my scene, but this two piece look is adorably subtle.

8. Philomena Kwao

Can we please bring colorblocking back?

9. Hannah Davis

And, of course, no red carpet lately would be complete with Hannah Davis looking like a Greek goddess.

I think we’re done here.
