Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Models, athletes and celebrities stuck around Houston after the Super Bowl for Sports Illustrated's Vibes party to celebrate the release of the magazine's annual swimsuit issue.

Kate Upton, who appeared on the cover of the issue for the third time, was one of many models who walked the red carpet at Post HTX Saturday evening. Others included Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal, Hailey Clauson, Hannah Jeter, Ashley Graham, Bianca Balti, Danielle Herrington, Kelly Gale, Lais Ribeiro, Mia Kang, Myla Dalbesio and Vita Sidorkina — as well as Christie Brinkley, who first appeared on the cover of the swimsuit issue in 1981.

The event, which was spread out over two days, also included food from award-winning local chefs including Chris Shepherd (Underbelly), Tyson Cole (Uchi and UchiKo), Hugh Acheson (Five & Ten), Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegel-Gardner (Pass & Provisions). Miguel and Diplo gave musical performances.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
