Angel Reese is combining two of our favorite summer fashion statements: bikinis and metallics. The 2023 SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed by Yu Tsai in Los Angeles earlier this year, just shared the most stunning photos with her 2.3 million Instagram followers.

The LSU basketball champion, who was named Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four, donned a shiny silver two-piece featuring a triangle-style top and tie-side bottoms. She paired the Fashion Nova bikini with dark wash denim jeans, which she left unbuttoned and folded over so they hung low on her waist. 

“i’m the CATCH,” the 21-year-old Bayou Barbie captioned her July 22 carousel.

“She a baddie she knows she a 10 😍,” one fan commented, quoting lyrics from Ice Spice’s “In Ha Mood.”

“Yup😍🫶🏽,” Alia Armstrong added.

The Baltimore native revealed to SI Swimsuit that she feels the most confident in a bikini.

“I had on thong bathing suits and I didn’t think I was going to be comfortable, but [everyone] made me feel really comfortable,” she said. “I work out a lot. I embrace my body and who I am and every mark on my body. I probably feel the sexiest in a bathing suit.”

Reese is using her platform to promote the message that athletes can be both feminine in the way the dress, accessorize and present themselves, while also dominating on the court or field.

“I want people to know you can be girly off the court and still have swag and just be who you are,” she added. “I embrace my body and who I am. Every mark on my body, I am who I am. But on the court, I can still ball and just play hard. You can do both.”
