We think we can all agree that a 25th birthday celebration is a milestone. Nothing material changes, but it feels more important than a 23rd or 24th. For model Sixtine, her 25th was significant for more reasons than just one. 

In addition to its typical significance, the model spent her 25th birthday on set in Dominica, shooting her rookie feature for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. 

It was a moment that she later told Wonderland Magazine was the “highlight of [her] career.” 

“That was a dream client that was so far up the list I was like oh yeah one day no way I’m just going to casually become a Sports Illustrated Model,” she said in the interview. “AND THEN I DID. I still can’t believe it. And the whole entire SI staff and team has only made it better, they truly are so amazing. I shot my photos on my 25th birthday in Dominica, which made it an even greater highlight, and after my shoot wrapped the entire team sang happy birthday to me and presented me with a cake. I am so grateful and so lucky to be a part of such an incredible family of people.”

The shoot wasn’t simply significant because it fell on her birthday, though, it was significant because it was her debut with the brand—and a dream come true on top of it all. She treated it accordingly, absolutely stunning on the beaches of the tropical destination.

But, rather than describing the lovely photoshoot, we’ll just prove it all with the photos. Here are a few of our favorites from the day.
