Jasmine Sanders graces the cover of the November/December issue of Maxim, and both the model and the magazine are sharing snippets of the photoshoot with their respective Instagram crowds. On Friday, the Sports Illustrated Rookie of the Year took to the popular social media platform to share a sweltering snippet of her shoot that showcases her athletic figure in an intricate bra that flatters her curves.
In this particular photo, Sanders is posing in front of a white backdrop as she rocks a bra-like top featuring an underwire structure that pushes against her chest, helping to accentuate her cleavage. The top also boasts a series of thin straps that crisscross her torso, creating an armor-like effect.
Sanders — who is also known as Golden Barbie — teamed her top with a pair of high-rise bottoms featuring sparkly details that make up various prints as well as a wide belt that cinches around her waist. As Sanders shared in her caption, her entire outfit is courtesy of Versace. The German-born model also shared that the stunning shot was captured by world-renowned fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon.
Sanders was facing the camera when she shots an intense look at the viewer. Her lips were slightly parted in a way that was both sexy and defiant.
The post, which Sanders shared with her 3.6 million Instagram followers, garnered more than 36,600 likes in just a few hours of being published. The same time period also brought in nearly 310 comments to the photo. Fans of the model took to the comments section of the social media post to praise her shoot and to shower her with compliments.
“So hot,” one user raved, trailing the words with a fire emoji and a heart eyes smiley.
“Yes girl,” said another fan, also adding the same fire and heart eyes emoji to the comment.
“Such intense eyes! Gorgeous,” a third fan chimed in.
In the Maxim piece, Sanders explained the origin of her famous moniker, Golden Barbie. She shared she previously tried to ditch the nickname but she was a little too late, as she explained to Maxim.
“It kind of stuck with me. It was supposed to just be for Twitter and Instagram, nothing serious. I had a lot of friends who used to call me a Barbie Doll, and one of my teachers used to always call me Goldilocks because of my curly hair. Somehow [my sister and I] came up with Golden Barbie, and it stuck.”
