Sixtine Rouyre has got us all in our feels. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie shared the most adorable TikTok from her photo shoot with Yu Tsai in Dominica. The 25-year-old posed casually on a couch on a balcony after wrapping up a day of posing for the camera.

“So I am currently in Dominica,” she began with a smile. “By the time anyone sees this video, it’ll be months from now but I just want to say that my a-- just shot for Sports Illustrated as a rookie—rolls and all. I’m going to be in Sports Illustrated.”

Rouyre wore a brown bikini, tiny gold hoop earrings and a dainty pendant necklace.

“digging through the drafts and found this gem,” she captioned the Feb. 20 TikTok. “I have never let my size/body shape keep me from chasing my dreams, let this be your reminder to do the same #sportsillustratedmodel #bodyneutrality #size10model.”

Rouyre initially announced the exciting news to her 115,000 Instagram followers on Feb. 15 with the most heartfelt post. She has kept the behind-the-scenes content coming ever since with more pics and TikToks—she has 800,000 followers on the video-based platform.

“Some bts from my shoot with @si_swimsuit in Dominica,” she wrote under a sweet photo dump on Feb. 20. “still can’t believe this is my life.”

The first shot was taken from behind as Rouyre strutted in a bikini made out of a giant leaf. She posed in a sea-green bikini in the midst of luscious plants in the second pic. Next was a serene video of Rouyre swinging on the beach, while the following slide captured a tiny lizard sitting on her chest.

The body neutrality influencer also tossed in snaps of the Swim Team crew, palm trees, a wooden dock and some gorgeous BTS film pics taken during her photo shoot.
