Jasmine Sanders has joined the "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit class.
Golden Barbie A.K.A. Jasmine Sanders has officially joined the SI Swimsuit 2019 rookie class. The 27-year-old has had a blossoming modeling career from when she was 13-years-old and has appeared in magazines such as InStyle, Harper's Bazaar, and LOVE Magazine, and more recently the cover of Elle Turkey's November 2018 issue.
"I’m so excited to be part of the Sports Illustrated family!" Jasmine said. "I love that they celebrate all types of women with different body types from different backgrounds. I can’t wait to be along side such icons as Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen, and Ashley Graham, just to make a few."
Jasmine's nickname was garnered from her childhood when people called her Goldilocks and said she "looked like a life-size Barbie."
“One day, my sister and I were playing around with silly usernames for social media, and we put the two together. ‘Golden Barbie’ had a ring to it that I liked, so I stuck with it," she told Vogue. "I’m actually thankful my following knows me as Golden Barbie, versus some of the other names we suggested!”
