Jasmine Sanders 2022: Belize

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

Sanders, better known on social media as Golden Barbie, made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2019. That same year, she took home the coveted Rookie of the Year title. Born in Germany, raised in South Carolina, Sanders is now a Los Angeles native. She is a proud dog-mom and loves honing her home design skills when she’s not on the road.

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.
