You know what this Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition needs? Some exotic human props.

Each year, we turn to the annual arbiter of good taste and hot bodies, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, to tell us what's fashionable in swimwear. Yeah. This year, they've traveled to "exotic" locales around the world, inexplicably using human props for the issue's half-nekkid photo shoots: In the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, Chinese people are exotic props.

Oh, and you girls with the beads and sparkly hats. Adorable. Stand right there and smile. Why didn't we think of this before? Humans as exotic props! Here are some more photos:
