05-1999 Glamour

It's Rebecca Romijn redux. The blond supermodel who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated's February (1999, RRF) swimsuit issue is back wearing a bikini on Glamour magazine's upcoming May swimsuit issue.

Glamour editor Bonnie Fuller defends her copycat-like choice, saying: "The image she is projecting is so different. The look is made for women to relate to. She is sitting there looking comfortable. It's not an itsy-bitsy bathing suit."

In fact, Fuller says she was talking to b>Romijn' agent long before the SI cover appeared, and in the end stuck with the blond model because "she's very athletic."

"She's a bright, confident, talented young woman," Fuller says. Besides, she adds, her swimsuit issue is for women, not men.

"It's about getting the confidence to go to the beach, feel great and find a suit that makes you feel comfortable to walk around and not obsess about what you perceive as your flaws."
