Teyana Taylor is 1st Black woman to be named Maxim’s Sexiest Woman
“Somebody pinch me!!!!” Taylor wrote on Instagram. “Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in.”
Singer and actress Teyana Taylor was dubbed the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Maxim this weekend, the first Black woman to be so named.
“A graceful choreographer-dancer, actor-director and top ten recording star,” the magazine’s Jordan Riefe declared of her, “she has brains, talent and, well, the photos show the rest.”
Taylor, 30, shared the announcement on Instagram, where she wrote, “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 posted. “Living up to name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous.”
“As an entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & worrying 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 snap back!” Taylor wrote. “So I as you can see I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.”
