We are in no way surprised to find everyone else is just as excited about 2023 SI Swim Search co-winner Sharina Gutierrez’s reveal as we were. It was a moment we were highly anticipating, and it didn’t disappoint.
Among those giving the newest brand rookie the recognition that she is due were several of the existing members of the SI Swim family, who took to the comments of SI Swimsuit’s Instagram announcement to declare their support.
The post, which featured a montage of clips from Gutierrez’s trip to Porto and the North, Portugal for her 2024 photo shoot, elicited praise from several former and current models.
“That’s my GIRL!!!! 🙌🙌🙌❤️❤️❤️,” 2023 SI Swim rookie Nicole Williams English gushed of the reveal.
“😍😍😍😍😍 yasss queennnnn,” Lorena Durán added.
“WOWOOW,” Mady Dewey exclaimed of the incredible clip.
“Sooo beautiful!!! 😍,” Jennifer Atilémile wrote.
“Stunner 😍😍😍🔥🔥,” 2016 SI Swim model Sofia Resing complimented Gutierrez.
As we said, their praise was well-deserved and sweetly received by the brand new SI Swim model, who responded to each and every one with warmth and gratitude. Her response to the reveal was exactly in line with the characteristically kind and enthusiastic attitude that she brought to the whole Swim Search process and her other various passions.
“Sharina gracefully navigates the worlds of motherhood, modeling and entrepreneurship, showcasing that dedication and passion can seamlessly coexist,” editor in chief MJ Day said of the model. “Her journey is an inspiration and we are thrilled to tell her story in our 60th anniversary issue.”
