Tennis star Serena Williams steals the show with her beautiful and powerful pictures in the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, which was shot in Turks & Caicos.
Not only does she look super sexy modeling an array of swimwear, but she represents the athletic body type, and she’s a woman of colour. These are two things that hardly dominate mainstream fashion and beauty.
In her interview for the edition, Williams said that she wants women, especially those who have her body type, to learn to be comfortable with their bodies and be confident in their own skin, knowing that they are beautiful and celebrated.
