Achieng Agutu strutted her stuff in delicious neon looks at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Runway Show at the W South Beach for Miami Swim Week this evening.

The 2024 rookie co-won the Swim Search open casting call last year, and made her debut in the 60th anniversary magazine after a breathtaking photo shoot with Yu Tsai on the beaches of Mexico. The influencer, who is known on all her platforms by the handle @noordinarynoire, as well as the tagline “the tantalizing confidence queen,” is all about encouraging women to step into their power and be unapologetically themselves. The Kenyan-born model is always sharing her best beauty and fashion tips, in addition to uplifting and inspiring messages hyping herself and her internet friends, a.k.a. her “besties” up.

Agutu donned a cute, shiny bright blue set from Nessa Swimwear, as well as a one-piece from Sports Illustrated’s new swimwear line, available on Amazon and created in Partnership with SWIM USA. The 83-piece collection of bikinis, one-pieces, monokinis and cover-ups ranges from $30-$60 and offers sizes XS to XXL.

In anticipation of SI Swimsuit’s runway show, models and staff gathered and celebrated with an outdoor bungalow brunch yesterday morining. Magazine stars attended a pool party alongside cool pop-ups, activations and more, followed by a glamorous VIP welcome dinner and after-party on Friday night.

The women woke up bright and early this morning, and were treated to a high-energy workout class in led by four-time SI Swimsuit model and fitness influencer Katie Austin in partnership with DOGPOUND. Everyone practiced their catwalks with a super fun rehearsal ahead of this evening’s event, and then headed to hair and makeup to get ready for the pre-runway show red carpet, hosted by Nicole Williams English and Kamie Crawford.
