Camille Veronica Kostek (born February 19, 1992) is an American model and actress. She first gained recognition for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and came to international prominence after landing a solo cover with the magazine in 2019.



Kostek joined her first modeling agency in Boston in 2015. She subsequently became brand ambassador and model for Benrus, Equinox Fitness, and Dune Jewelry. Her early work consisted of print and television commercials for brands like Nissan, New Balance, and TJ Maxx, to name a few. She has also graced the covers of magazines like Ocean Drive and BELLA among others.

Since then, Kostek has done national and international campaigns and ambassadorships for various clothing and cosmetic brands including L’Oréal, Victoria’s Secret, and Clarins. She also did ad campaigns for fashion line Kittenish, and walked the runway for its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week. Kostek also models for Reebok, and headlined the brand’s PureMove Bra campaign in 2019 among others.

Kostek has been called an “American Bombshell” and sex symbol for her blonde hair, blue eyes and curves. Connecticut Magazine named her in their “40 under 40″ list of influential people of 2018, and she was included in Maxim’s Hot 100 list of Sexiest Women in the World in 2019.

In February 2017, Kostek moved to Los Angeles but found difficulty securing representation as they kept telling her she was not tall enough at 5’8”, or thin enough at dress size 4/6. She then submitted a video of her experience to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue which was conducting an open casting call at the time. She was scouted, and walked the runway for the SI Swimsuit Fashion Show during Miami Beach Swim Week in July 2017. The following month, she had her first photoshoot with the magazine in Belize for the 2018 issue. Kostek was chosen from 5,000 open casting call candidates and won the inaugural Sports Illustrated Swim Search in March 2018. She walked the runway for Miami Beach Swim Week for the second time in July 2018 and closed the show the following year.

The first model announced for the 2019 issue, she did her shoot in South Australia with photographer Josie Clough, and landed a solo cover in her official year as a rookie.


Kostek made her film debut with a cameo appearance in STX Films’ 2018 comedy I Feel Pretty. This was followed with a supporting role in 20th Century Fox’s science fiction film Free Guy (2020).
