The show previewed the 2021 Swimsuit Issue with its most diverse group of women yet
Strongly criticized in the past for having a lack of diversity, this year’s event was totally the opposite. The Sports Illustrated show which took place at the Baia Beach Club – Mondrian South Beach last Saturday featured women of diverse body types and ages, like plus-size model Amanda Kay and Kathy Jacobs, a 57-year-old model walking the runway. The annual runway show previewed the 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue which hits stands July 19 with its most diverse group of women yet. Well received by the attendee’s models were welcome with cheers by a very supportive crowd. The event was one of many in Miami Beach this last week, Ritz-Carlton, Palomar Hotel, Kimpton Angler’s, Soho Beach House, Faena, Boulan Hotel, Eden Roc, Plymouth Hotel, SLS South Beach, Miami Beach Edition, and Mondrian South Beach all hosted a number of events last week for the much-anticipated 2021 Miami Swim Week.
