One thing that was very important for me with my return to @si_swimsuit modeling was to give other people life changing opportunities. @mj_day and I were committed to also highlighting swimsuit designers of color. So while I may look like I’m just trying to be as fierce as I can be for the camera, I’m really trying to make this photo pop off the page so that @jai_nice and @klosetenvy get the recognition they have been working so hard for and truly deserve. I mean, a swimsuit with a garter attached?! The first I have ever seen! Innovation at its best. 👊🏽 #BanX #ForTheCulture
