Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Camille Kosteks bikini-season essentials

Ever wonder what your favorite celebrities buy when they’re browsing their favorite boutique or shopping online late at night? Welcome to Six Picks, where we ask stars to spill their style and beauty must-haves — so you can shop like you’re famous, too.

This year marks Camille Kostek’s fifth modeling for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, but she’s not resting on her laurels.

“I cannot believe five years has gone by. The most exciting part about this whole thing is that I still feel like a rookie,” the blond beauty — who’s been dating Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski since 2015 — tells Page Six Style.

“I always just have this rookie mentality of excitement. You’re not promised a spot, and so when you get that call, it’s so relieving and exciting.”

For the 2022 issue, Kostek posed in her “extended home” of the US Virgin Islands, where her grandmother and aunt both live, and sported a series of swim styles in “very neutral, earthy tones.”

“[I wore] a bunch of suits that were neutrals and cream and pearl colors and browns. And I was so happy, because I’ve been designing a swimsuit line and I’ve been so drawn to neutrals specifically,” she said, adding that there were plenty of midriff-baring looks on the menu.

“MJ [Day, SI Swimsuit’s editor] has called me ‘Crop Top Cami’ since the rookie year [in 2018]. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of wearing crop tops,” Kostek quipped. “Definitely the best part about the shoot is I always feel like me. I don’t have to pretend to be somebody that I’m not. And I just felt my best.”

Below, shop Kostek’s beach-season must-haves, from a reversible bikini to the perfect self-tanner.

Supergoop Handscreen Sunscreen SPF 40

“I’m so drawn to Supergoop because they’re all about clean ingredients. I just love that this doesn’t have fragrance in it, not too many chemicals, a lot of clean seed oils. Even when you’re not laying on the beach and trying to get a tan, your hands are always usually exposed to the sun. And you don’t realize it, but your hands can age quicker than anywhere else, especially if you’re forgetting about putting sunscreen on there. So it’s just a great way to just keep your hands very youthful and protected.”


Virtue Healing Oil

“When I go swimming in the ocean, I don’t really ever tie up [my hair] … I leave it out to get a little bit blonder in the sun. But what that means is my hair is going to dry out and start to fry. So having hair oil is a great way to keep the hair very hydrated and nourished and keep it looking fresh, especially since I feel like I always have to be camera-ready.”


Christopher Cloos x Elsa Sunglasses

“We always need to protect our eyes but always want to look cute. I’m a huge fan of this brand, and I feel like these sunnies are very timeless. They give a little glamorous feel. Whether I’m wearing a pair of jeans and a little white tee or [something] a little sophisticated, going to an event or a nice dinner before the sun sets, these are a cute little set to wear.”


Camille Kostek x Swimsuits for All Veronica Reversible Bikini

“There’s plenty of material to keep you in for your summer sports, whether you’re out in the water, on jet skis or tubing — that’s where you’ll find me. And it has this extra-long string for you to have fun with and wrap around your waist, crisscross it, wear it parallel … or if you don’t want to have those weird tan lines, just tuck up underneath. These suits are so great to style up; I say it’s ‘beach to street.’ So you can wear it at the beach or you can dress it up.”


Dolce Glow Lusso Self-Tanning Mousse

“Self-tanners are so great; [they] give you that glow without having to spend a lot of time in the sun. I actually have [this one] on right now … it’s a very natural glow. It’s really easy to apply with a velvet mitt, and it’s another [product] that is pretty clean for the most part with the ingredients. I’m a big fan.”


Charlotte Tilbury Lip & Cheek Glow Cream Blush & Lip Tint

“This color is stunning; I think it works great on all skin tones. It’s super cute for a sun-kissed look, even if you didn’t get the sun. I just tap a little on the nose, a little on the cheekbone, [and it] just kind of adds that extra little sun-kissed look. And you can add a little bit on the lip!”
