Madisin Rian got her start in modeling in 2008 after being discovered at a luncheon held by Kimora Lee Simmons. Ten years later, she became the first Black woman to be the face of Giorgio Armani Beauty. She has also been the face of fashion-forward campaigns for Polo Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Stuart Weitzman and J.Crew. The St. Louis native made a splash in the industry in 2017 when she chose to shave her head, which she has said to be one of the most liberating decisions she’s ever made—and one that’s helped her to break barriers. She is currently working to set up a foundation that will help to bring fresh water to impoverished areas in Africa. Known for her street style, Rian enjoys reading, a good glass of red wine and spending quality time with her family when she’s off duty. Rian makes her SI Swimsuit debut in the 2023 edition.
