Sports Illustrated model Myla Dalbesio likely triggered some heart palpitations when she was recently featured on the magazine’s Instagram page.
In the scorching hot photo, the 32-year-old brunette bombshell is rocking a tiny beaded bikini which leaves very little to the imagination. The photo gives the viewer a generous view of the model’s enviable cleavage, abs, and toned legs.
The post is actually a series of photos which are all part of Myla’s spread in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. In one of the other photos, she rocking a crocheted one-piece and in another, she’s sporting a nude tankini. All of the photos are alluring and showcase the model’s versatility in the beachy setting.
The display elicited a lot of enthusiastic admiration in the comments section of the post and many of the comments came from fellow Sports Illustrated models.
“Damn mama!!!!” wrote Brooks Nader.
“Such a babe!!!” Raine Michaels commented.
“Beautiful!” wrote Korean-born stunner Hyunjoo Hwang.
Myla has reciprocated this type of support in the Instagram comments sections of her fellow models as well. As The Inquisitr previously reported, she shared a cheeky supportive comment under model Hayley Clauson’s Instagram post recently.
“Dinner??? This is looking like a snack to me!” she wrote.
As Elle Magazine notes, Myla made waves in 2014 because she was featured in a Calvin Klein ad campaign. This was a big deal at the time because at size 10, she was considered a plus-sized model. The image went viral on Facebook and led to her getting coverage in the mainstream media including an interview on TODAY.
I didn’t think about the impact,” she said of the attention the campaign received. “It’s been really lovely to hear from people. I feel like I have a greater responsibility to women than I did before.”
But there’s more to Myla than meets the eye. She’s also a multidisciplinary artist and her work spans performance photography and much more.
“I’m always in my studio working on something when I’m not traveling. Lately, I’ve been working on a new series of collages and drawings and will soon be starting a new video project,” she said to Elle.
Myla showcases a lot of her photography on her Instagram page. Her most recent post is a portrait that she did of artist Hiba Schahbaz.
The artist complimented Myla in the comments section of the post.
“The honor was mine,” she wrote. “You’re amazing.”
