Madisin Rian’s rookie photo shoot with SI Swimsuit took place in the gorgeous Dominican Republic, where she posed for visual artist James Macari. The looks on set were inspired by the trendy Barbiecore motif, and Rian sure delivered with her colorful bikinis and bold one-pieces while on location for this year’s magazine.

On June 6, Rian shared several Instagram photos of herself clad in a two-toned string bikini that’s one of our absolute favorites from her complete 2023 gallery. The model posed beachside in her pink-and-red set by SIE Swim, which embodied the theme perfectly.

“BARBIE Style 👄💅🏾⛱️🌊 @si_swimsuit,” Rian wrote simply in her caption.

Tons of Rian’s 834,000 IG followers chimed in to the comments section to hype her up and offer compliments.

“The Barbie prototype 😍😍,” Cyrene Tankard observed.

“Madiiii🔥😍,” Lisa Ramos declared.

“Yes , this Barbie is Queen,” Sharina Gutierrez stated.

“Next level beauty,” someone else added.

“Perfection to say the least 💘😍,” another fan applauded.

In addition to her rookie feature with SI Swimsuit, Rian has worked with notable fashion brands like Polo Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan and Stuart Weitzman. In 2018, she was the first Black woman to become the face of Giorgio Armani Beauty.
