Maxim magazine shared a throwback photo of Lais Ribeiro from her cover shoot to its Instagram page and her fans are loving it.
Over the weekend, the magazine took to the popular social media app to post the black-and-white snapshot in which Ribeiro flaunted quite a bit of skin in a sexy outfit that showcased her insane figure. In the photo, Ribeiro — who was featured on the cover of Maxim for its September/October 2018 issue — posed against a dark backdrop in a studio in New York, as the post’s geotag indicates. The snap was captured by world-renowned fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, as stated in the photo’s caption.
Ribeiro rocked a white top with thick straps and plunging sides that bared most of her ribcage and back. The top also left quite a bit of sideboob on display. The tank boasted a textured fabric that gave it a semi-sheer quality, though it was still solid enough to cover her chest. Ribeiro teamed her top with a pair of denim bottoms that featured different textures, buttons, and straps.
The Brazilian bombshell — who is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model — posed with both of her arms by her head, which further showcased her torso.
Ribeiro pulled her raven hair up with her hands as she gazed down. Her lips were parted seductively, adding to the sultry nature of the photo.
Within about a day of being published, the post — which Maxim shared with its 925,000 Instagram followers — has garnered more than 8,700 likes. The same time period also brought in upwards of 30 comments to the photo.
Users of the social media platform took to the comments section to praise Ribeiro’s beauty and to compliment Bensimon’s aesthetics.
“So Yummy,” wrote one fan, including a sunflower, a fire, and a 100 mark emoji at the end of the comment.
“Simple & sexy!” another follower said, following the words with the OK hand sign emoji.
In the accompanying interview for Maxim, Ribeiro opened up about leaving her small town in northern Brazil to pursue a career in modeling in New York. She said she came to the U.S. not knowing any English and had to leave her son behind temporarily, until she got settled.
“I saw the whole entire world when I first came here,” she told Maxim. “I saw snow, taxis, how to take the train. It was incredible.”
