Teyana Taylor is in a lane of her own. She has so many titles I can’t keep up! She is a creative entrepreneur, mother, singer, dancer, and actress, but this new title is groundbreaking! Earlier today, she shared that she was announced as Maxim Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ for the ‘Hot 100’ issue! This is a huge honor because Teyana is the first Black woman to have the title! The Harlem native looked gorgeous as she slayed the cover wearing a cropped white beater, with her washboard abs exposed, paired with army fatigue pants.
Anything wear she always slays! The photos inside of the magazine with Teyana wearing a variety of lewks were just as bomb! Teyana pinned a lengthy message on the ‘gram, revealing how gracing the cover made her feel. “Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in WOW…Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence,” she wrote.
She continued,” Living up to the name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous. As an entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & working behind the lens in my director bag, I tend to hide behind my sweats & vintage tees, My “Spike Tey” glasses, and whatever hairstyle I’ve mustered up that day under my @theauntiesinc snapback!”
Teyana shouted out her team along with the legendary photographer Gilles Bensimon for making magic happen. Her husband, Iman Shumpert, showed her love in her comment section and congratulated her. Teyana also stepped into The Shade Room’s comments and thanked us for showing love by dropping several red heart emojis.
Congrats again, Teyana! You deserve all your flowers!
