Lauren Chan: 2024 Mexico


Lauren Chan was photographed by Yu Tsai in Mexico for the 2024 SI Swimsuit Issue, along with fellow models Achieng Agutu, Jena Sims, Lori Harvey, Hunter McGrady, Gayle King, Kate Upton, Brooks Nader, Ellie Thumann and Nicole Williams English

Chan came to the SI Swimsuit set for the first time in 2023 as a model, fashion editor and entrepreneur. The size-inclusion advocate signed with Ford Models in New York City, while working as a fashion writer for outlets like Vogue and Interview. She later became the fashion features editor at Glamour, where she focused on a plus-size fashion beat and designed a clothing collection with Lane Bryant. Now, she pursues both modeling and journalistic endeavors, including working as a broadcaster and host on Canadian programs like The Social, CityLine, and eTalk. Chan returns to the SI Swimsuit set for the 2024 issue.

The Mexican Caribbean, which is home to popular destinations like Cancún, Isla Cozumel and Riviera Maya, was one of the dazzling locations chosen by SI Swimsuit for the 2024 issue. Rich in Mayan history and featuring clear, turquoise waters and beautiful beaches, it is the perfect vacation spot both for those seeking cultural history and those in need of relaxation. With its beauty and rich history, it couldn’t have been a more perfect destination for the 2024 SI Swimsuit issue.

Inspired by swimsuit editorials from the 1980s, the styling on set featured loud colors, sleek swimsuits and over-the-top jewelry. The final looks and photos are meant to read sporty, but a little flashy.
