Sailor Brinkley Cook stripped down with a message for the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photoshoot.

The 19-year-old model posed nude for the magazine with emotional words painted across her body. This is for a project titled, “In Her Own Words,” which gave S.I. models the opportunity to express themselves in a raw, uncensored way.

Christie Brinkley‘s daughter, along with Paulina Porizkova and Robyn Lawley, were part of this iconic one-of-a-kind shoot, which was led by an all-female crew.

Sailor, who also worked behind the camera, says, “Having these words written all over your naked body and having that next level of exposure — I felt sexy obviously but I felt more emotional and it helped me accept myself.”

The 52-year-old Porizkova said, “I’m not ashamed of my body and you shouldn’t be ashamed of your body, no matter what age you are.”

Sports Illustrated will release more photos from this project, featuring even more models during the official launch on Tuesday.
