Being the daring dresser she is, Megan Thee Stallion modelled the bare-all swimwear trend that’s been making waves all season long. For her cover shoot, the “Savage” singer — who is the first female rapper to grace the cover of the publication’s swimsuit issue, which started in 1964 — donned a sand-coloured strappy bikini by Fashion Nova which featured under- and over-boob cut-outs. (The rapper has her own line with the fast-fashion brand.) And that wasn’t even the only peek-a-boo moment from the shoot.
In total, Megan Thee Stallion wore 10 different swimsuits, ranging from bikinis to maillots, for her portion of the shoot. Half featured cut-outs, with highlights including an Ariana Grande-approved Cult Gaia style, a cyan blue Fashion Nova one-piece, and a silver monokini that she posed in with her French Bulldog 40e. Ticking off even more 2021 swimwear trends, she wore metallic gold Tarzan bottoms and a bright orange G-string bikini.
Bloom’s shoot, too, included the swimwear trend. Bloom, who is the first openly trans model to be on the cover of the swimsuit issue, wore four different cut-out swimsuits for her shoot. Osaka wore two cut-out swimsuits for her feature, as well.
