Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Raine Michaels, daughter of former Poison lead singer Bret Michaels, is one of 2019’s SI Swimsuit finalists. Fans of the magazine and model can definitely understand why she was chosen after perusing her Instagram page. Her feed is replete with hundreds of sexy snaps showing off her killer figure, Raine frequently pictured in various different swimsuits.

As the release of the 2019 issue of the magazine appeared on the horizon, Michaels took to Instagram on Thursday to post a throwback photo from one of the shoots. This particular photo session took place in the Bahamas. The photo captures the model’s upper torso and sun-kissed face, and she poses in a barely-there light-blue bikini — one which leaves much of her busty chest exposed.

The model’s 80,000-plus followers are blessed with the perfect shot of her stunning green eyes and black lashes in the snap. Raine gazes towards the camera, her pink lips slightly parted. Her salt-drenched blond hair is messy, blowing in the wind.

Her followers loved the photo, commenting on how beautiful she looked and how excited they were for the upcoming release of the 2019 issue. One follower referred to her as an “angelic goddess,” while another wrote that her eyes were “captivating” — and that she was beautiful, both inside and out.

Last summer, Michaels spoke with Fox News about her experience as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. She dished on what had inspired her to pursue a career with the magazine.

“Sports Illustrated has been one of my goals since I was probably 13 years old. I’ve always wanted to be a part of Sports Illustrated. I loved the magazine. Kate Upton is one of my biggest role models in life. I’ve always loved that they really want to show that it’s all about inner beauty that shines.”

The model elaborated, explaining that one of her motivations was showing the world that models come in all shapes and sizes.

“Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. There’s no one shape or size that’s perfect. And they show that all sizes, all shapes matter, all ethnicities are beautiful. That’s something I really wanted to be a part of because that’s what we need in the world today.”

Michaels also commented on her father’s reaction to her wanting to become a model, telling the news outlet that he was incredibly supportive of her decision — and was very happy for her when she became a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.

The 2019 launch of the magazine will take place in Miami, Florida, from May 10 through May 11.
