Fashion Model Olivia Culpo is offering up a first look at the 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

Culpo has appeared in the swimsuit edition before and is a former Miss USA and Miss Universe winner. She made her SI swimsuit edition debut in 2018 and was on the cover of the 2020 issue.

She took to social media yesterday (Monday) to share some sizzling photos of her shoot with fans. In the Instagram post, she says is “grateful” and “lucky” to have the opportunity to appear in the magazine. The photo shows her in a stunning pink bikini.

“Feeling so grateful to be back with @si_swimsuit this year!” she says in the lengthy social media post. “To work with a brand whose mission is to inspire ALL women to be the best version of themselves is such a blessing to me…I feel so lucky. Thank you @mj_day and the entire SI team for showing ALL women that you can be anything you want to be.”

Olivia Culpo Speaks Out on Working With ‘Sports Illustrated’

Culpo goes on to talk about her first experience working with Sports Illustrated. She says she was “afraid out of her mind” and just hoping for an opportunity for involvement.

“I still remember walking into your office almost five years ago being scared out of my mind and dreaming of the opportunity to work with SI,” she continues. “When I reflect on those times I am reminded about the power of forging a path and fighting for your dreams. This goes beyond myself and to every person out there with a desire to pursue their own unique destiny.”

Culpo also hopes that her story will inspire other women to chase down their own dreams.

“I am forever grateful for the path I was able to pave for myself and feel indebted to the people who have helped me along the way,” she says.

The 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition will drop this summer in July. They have been sharing new models that will be appearing in the magazine each day in March.
