When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Hunter McGrady is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.
If you've picked up this year's edition of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, then you've probably seen model Hunter McGrady's photos. McGrady is the curviest model SI's has ever featured in the issue and is, in a word, fabulous. Rocking a painted-on (yes, painted on — literally) swimsuit, the model looked confident, sexy, and unquestionably in her element in the spread. And the response to the images has been incredible. While McGrady is quickly becoming a household name thanks to the Swimsuit Issue, she's making it a priority to discuss body positivity and size inclusivity.
McGrady stopped by the Bustle offices to talk about Sports Illustrated, being a curvy girl, and what it's like for her in the modeling industry. She also shared how much she loves Beyoncé (same), hates rodents (also same), and that she's particularly talented at drawing cute donuts (goals).
