When I sat down to do Bikini Sunday this week I knew exactly where I was going to go with it. Australian gold medalist Stephanie Rice recently tweeted a photo of herself in a bikini, and apparently folks (well Australians anyways) are up in arms about it.  I had just started writing the piece up and gotten to the part where I mentioned the bikini in question was a gift from her swimsuit designer friend, and then I got to a photo of the swimsuit designer friend… and BADA BING!  My keen sense of the obvious told me that this was where the real story was, so here we are.  Ellie is 21, from Australia, and is a model and swimwear designer.  I don’t see that she’s done any major campaigns but here are a bunch of photos of her in bikinis.  Keep your eyes peeled for her stateside guys, I think we’re going to see a whole lot more of her soon.
