Duckie Thot 2022: Montenegro


Duckie Thot made her debut as a SI Swimsuit Rookie in 2022 being photographed by James Macari in Montenegro with Brooks Nader, Lorena Duran, Josephine Skriver, Olivia Ponton, Yumi Nu and Katie Austin.

Australian model Thot was the face of Fenty Beauty, a global ambassador for L’Oreal Paris and is now a SI Swimsuit Rookie. She met Kanye West after his assistant chased her down to invite her to meet him—she shot a magazine cover that same day and ended up walking Yeezy Spring/Summer 2017. Thot—who is of South Sudanese descent—is a big advocate for diversity, inclusion and representation within the fashion industry.

Montenegro is filled with breathtaking scenery, distinctive culture and tradition, offering an unforgettable traveling experience. Montenegrins are proud, generous, welcoming and open to everyone. Combining Mediterranean charm with Balkan passion, it’s no wonder Montenegro has slowly emerged as one of the leading tourist destinations in Europe. Filled with natural beauty, this country of miracles made an obvious choice to be the first stop of the year for the SI Swimsuit team as they began production for the 2022 Issue.

Montenegro’s landscape is stunning, vast and feels almost untouched. By the sea you get a Mediterranean vibe (though, technically on the Adriatic sea), while the northern part of the country offers beautiful mountains, lakes and cooler temperatures. The team wanted to work with suits that felt natural in the surroundings and that had a utilitarian edge to them. Burnt oranges and olive greens and browns were some of our favorite tones here as they reflected the natural colors of the architecture and nature.
