Emily is tipped to have been photographed for the magazine

It looks as though stunning model Emily Ratajkowski may have landed a prestigious shoot in Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue.

Quite a few hints have been dropped that the 22-year-old – who shot to fame in Robin Thicke‘s saucy Blurred Lines video – has been included in the famous magazine.

Its editor MJ Day posted a number of teasing snaps on her Instagram page last month, which show models posing in nothing but skimpy beachwear.

The girls’ heads have all been cut off by the camera so it’s impossible to tell who they are – but some eagle-eyed fans have noted that one of them has a very similar bod to Emily.

Also in December, Emily shared a picture of a luxurious-looking swimming pool in a gorgeous flower-filled location alongside the caption: ‘I’ve found paradise!’

This led swimwear photographer Dax Balladares to Tweet: ‘@emrata congrats on SI.’

Sports Illustrated‘s sexy swimsuit issue is released every February but this year’s is particularly special as it marks the publication’s 50th anniversary.

Emily has previously spoken about how much she’d love to take part.

‘I think there’s a wonderful tradition,’ Emily told the magazine in July.

‘This year is the anniversary issue. It would be an honour to be included in that history of supermodels.’
