Katie Austin is back and better than ever! The fitness influencer secured her spot in this year’s SI Swimsuit Issue after she was named 2022 co-Rookie of the year alongside BFF and model Christen Harper.

The 29-year-old was photographed by James Macari in the Dominican Republic and the resulting pics are absolutely gorgeous. The SI Swimsuit team opted for fun, feminine and flirty swimsuits—a collection of bright bikinis and one-pieces, all inspired by the trending Barbiecore aesthetic. In Austin’s IG post, she wore a hot pink latex one-piece from HAUS OF PINKLEMONAID featuring a high-leg and scoop-neck.
