This ‘Sports Illustrated’ Model With Alopecia Is Making Bald Sexy

Fall is coming, and that means we’re already picking the models for next spring’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. It’s sort of like how Starbucks is already rolling out the pumpkin spice (which is like, 90% cinnamon, so just calm your tits white ladies) and department stores start their Black Friday sales on Arbor Day now.

We keep getting looks at models and potential models for next year’s swimsuit issue, but one of the standouts this time is Christie Valdiserri, who happens to have alopecia, which means all the hair on her body just sort of falls out.

#SISwimSearch Sweet 17: Meet Christie Valdiserri⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ “I truly believe we need to educate the next generation that beauty comes from who you are, not from what you look like. Associating hair with beauty was taught to us. We weren't born believing hair makes you pretty, but society has lead us to believe that. So I plan to let my personality and my positive nature shine through regardless of if I ever have hair on my head again. I want to show the confidence that I've worked so hard for and my love for life to radiate through my posts and through my presence everyday, so young girls or other women who are losing their hair or have been hiding under a wig for years have at least a small glimpse of hope. I want to give people the little push they need to go from being bald to being bold.” – @christie.valdiserri⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Click the link in bio to learn more about Christie! ✨

Is now a good time to mention I had a crush on the bald chick from first Star Trek movie when I was a kid?

I put on my story 2 days ago, a pic of me w my old hair & wrote how much I miss it. But it wasn’t until my friend responded & said “but let’s take a moment to realize how much happier you are now… “ & then it hit me. As much as I miss my hair… I don’t miss where I was in my life during that pic where I had hair— I’m so much happier now & know who I am, compared to the young, broken me w hair. I can miss it of course, but gotta remember that hair isn’t everything !!! @si_swimsuit @mj_day are the ones I can thank for making me feel happy & confident in my own skin w no hair✨ Go check out @si_swimsuit page & read my personal interview w SI in the link in their bio & mine🙏

Christie looks good with or without hair and I think it’s great she’s sharing her story.
