Olivia Ponton Brings Back the Heat for SI Swimsuit 2023 Issue
Olivia Ponton is coming back to make jaws drop for the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
The 20-year-old model made her debut as a SI Swim Rookie back in 2022, and now she's once again getting in front of the cameras for the publication's annual issue.
Ponton—who will turn 21 at the end of the month—signed with Wilhelmina Models NYC back in 2020, and she's been rising to new heights of internet fame ever since.
A viral Instagram and TikTok sensation, Ponton has gained quite a following in recent years, including over 7 million TikTok followers. In addition to making silly dancing videos, she often uses her platform to spread positivity and kindness, while acting as a role model for others.
Since coming into the public eye, Ponton has partnered with a number of companies for various campaigns, including Benefit Cosmetics' Summer Brown Campaign, as well as Marc Jacobs Fragrance, Alice and Olivia and more.
She is also a vocal member of the LGBTQ+ community, and currently has a pride collection in collaboration with American Eagle. In June 2021, she came out as bisexual in celebration of Pride Month, and she now identifies as pansexual.
"Olivia is a breath of fresh air! She exudes nothing but positivity and love, while working extremely hard to raise awareness for mental health, the LGBTQ+ community and issues that are important to her," said SI Swimsuit editor in chief MJ Day. "Her success is emblematic of the way the industry is moving and she works tirelessly as a figurehead of the next digital-savvy generation."
