Teyana Taylor is Maxim's First Black Sexiest Woman Alive Cover.
On Monday, the 30-year-old entertainer was crowned Maxim’s “Sexiest Woman Alive,” topping the title’s “Hot 100” list for 2021.
Taylor covers the issue in a hacked-off Hanes tank top and vintage army pants, showing off her six-pack abs.
Inside its pages, she models more revealing looks, including vintage overalls (worn sans top) and an unbuttoned Maison Margiela shirt paired with perilously low-slung slacks.
“I’ve followed Maxim for a long time and I’ve always felt like I should be on the cover,” she tells us from her home in Atlanta, where she lives with her husband, professional basketball player Iman Shumpert. “So to actually get the call saying they want me on the cover really meant a lot. I was like, what? They want me on the cover? Okay!”
