Ellie Thumann has hopped on Kendall Jenner’s viral (and controversial) tights as pants trend. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie shared some stunning snapshots from a recent modeling campaign on Instagram. She paired a brownish-green jacket, featuring circular buttons and massive shoulder pads, with sheer black tights and platform stilettos.

The 21-year-old’s blonde locks were straightened and parted deep to one side by Sydroze. Makeup artist Jae Eun Park opted for a warm sultry look, including bronze eye glam, chiseled cheekbones and a glossy brown lip. 

An additional outfit from the photo shoot saved a moment for Thumann’s toned and long legs. She donned a crochet halter-neck romper, including a totally open back and the teeniest, tiniest shorts. The Arizona native added multiple chunky hoop earrings and strappy black sandals.

The photo shoot was styled by Hannah Kerri. Thumann tagged photographer Jesse Volk, who captured images of Thumann showing off her bold smolder and cheesing wide.

“these are absolutely insane i am not ok,” someone commented.

“give her a vogue cover,” another begged.

“You are unreal,” one fan wrote.

“These are phenomenal, you look amazing,” someone else added.

Thumann, who is best known for her fashion, beauty and lifestyle YouTube channel, is represented by IMG Models. She makes her SI Swimsuit debut this month.
