56-year-old American Kathy Jacobs (Kathy Jacobs) starred in a bikini for Sports Illustrated magazine, which specializes in photographs of women in swimwear. Her photo appeared on the publication's Instagram account.
The above picture shows a smiling model in a white swimsuit against a backdrop of palm trees. The publication received 38 thousand likes and many enthusiastic comments.
Sports Illustrated Modeling Contest organizers sent the finalists to the Turks and Caicos Islands to participate in the magazine's candid photo sessions. In addition to Jacobs, Christie Valdiserri, who suffers from alopecia (baldness), was among the contenders for the victory.
The author of the shooting was the photographer Yu Tsai, who previously worked with Anne Hathaway, Ryan Gosling, Kate Beckinsale, and collaborated with such world publications as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Grazia.
In February, Katie Jacobs walked the runway in a bikini and became one of the finalists for the casting of the said sports magazine, which began in July 2019. Seven months later, the jury announced the names of applicants for the title of permanent fashion model of the publication. The woman said that participation in the competition is important for her, since as an activist, she is fighting to expand the age range in the modeling business.
