In a behind the scenes video released by the magazine, they show the painstaking effort that goes into making the former world number one feel picture perfect, including the 15 hours of bodypaint application it took to get a lifelike looking swimsuit.

"I feel totally naked. But when I look in the mirror, it's the weirdest thing - I feel like I have plenty of clothes on," she said.

The crimson "swimsuit" look was shot in Saint Vincent and the clip documents her arrival and fitting at 11pm and working into the night to have the bodypaint applied. 

"It's been a long night so far, but it is going well, and I think this suit looks amazing and they are not even done yet," she added.

"It's kind of a surreal experience. I have never done anything like this before, so it makes it very special. Knowing what an incredible suit I have on right now, and we are in the most beautiful place here so I am sure the photos are going to be amazing."
