After missing out on Miami Swim Week last year, the annual swimwear showcase is back and it’s truly a reason to rejoice.
In previous years the catwalk has been criticised for having a lack of diversity – but this year’s event has been praised for being “inclusive”, with runway shows featuring women of diverse body types, ages and races.
The Sport Illustrated show which took place at the luxury Mondrian Hotel over the weekend included plus-sized models, mums and the “oldest/shortest Sports Illustrated rookie ever” – 57-year-old model Kathy Jacobs.

Kathy took to Instagram after the show to tell followers it is “never too late” after walking in a yellow two-piece on Saturday as well as a nude bikini.
