Hunter McGrady 2022: Belize

Hunter McGrady was photographed in Belize by Yu Tsai for SI Swimsuit in 2022, along with Kate Bock, Jasmine Sanders, Leyna Bloom, and Natalie Mariduena.

Los Angeles native McGrady originally made her debut in SI Swimsuit as a part of the brand’s 2017 Model Search. McGrady was brought back to become a rookie in 2018 as a part of the special project “In Her Own Words.” Since then, McGrady has continued to be a spokesperson for body diversity, as well as creating her own fashion line for QVC and marrying her partner, who she met on Snapchat.

Belize is a remarkable paradise full of beaches, jaguars, and some of the best scuba and snorkeling in the world! Beyond the unmatched natural wonders, enriching history and archaeological marvels and adrenaline-inducing adventures, it is truly the warmth of the Belizean people that makes Belize so special. Belize has garnered a widespread reputation as one of the world’s friendliest destinations.

In Belize, the team shot between jungles, lagoons and desolate islands with stunning waters, agriculture and wildlife. We wanted the styling to reflect the vibrance and abundance of the location. They pulled South American–inspired florals, dramatic structural pieces and bold jewelry that could keep up the beautiful and intense surroundings.
