Hailey Clauson Q&A for Sports Illustrated Swim Daily 24 April 2014

Hailey Clauson Q&A for Sports Illustrated Swim Daily:
SI Swimsuit 2015 Casting Call


Though only 19, the SoCal girl has already built a seriously impressive portfolio, and it’s only getting bigger. Looking through her work it’s impossible not to notice her resemblance to 1960s French model Brigitte Bardot (she even did a Bardot-inspired shoot in 2012). But despite her fast rising star, Hailey remains true to the California girl she has always been, naming The Crystal Bible as the book she thinks everyone should read—can you think of anything more SoCal than that? OK, maybe this from her weekend at Coachella.
