Remember i told you that my homegirl Natasha Barnard was gonna be the next South African supermodel…way back when i called it she would be the new Wonderbra girl? I was first to tell you that she landed the international Armani Exchange campaign in 2012 HERE and then a few weeks ago i told you she was announced as the new Guess girl worldwide HERE. And today i can confidently say that Natasha will feature in the US edition of the much anticipated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013 issue which hits shelves February 12th .
Right…i reckon we now safely call her a supermodel hey.
The folks at SI are rather tight-lipped about saying which girls have been chosen, but top supermodel website Bellazon leaked a list of the unofficially confirmed girls in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit US issue and Natasha was named as a rookie. Several other reputable fashion and sports websites have also added her to their list of girls appearing in this year’s edition. She joins Kate Upton, Irina Shayk, Anne V, Izabel Goulart, Nina Agdal, Alyssa Miller and South Africa’s Genevieve Morton who will make her 4th straight appearance.
So South Africa has two girls in the US version of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. F**k yeah.
Nicely done Tash…proud of you. Don’t be surprised if yo get the rookie of the year title.
And 4 years in row for Gen…good times.
