Sports Illustrated’s plus-size swimsuit model recreates the skimpiest of celebrities’ looks

A plus-size Sports Illustrated model has taken the internet by storm with her glamorous side-by-side photos that recreate celebrity’s most iconic and skimpy looks – from Kim Kardashian’s vintage SKIMS shoot to Julia Fox’s raunchy ensembles, the model proves that any body type can rock the revealing outfits.

Ella Halikas, 24, from Los Angeles, California, has gone viral for recreating the boldest looks of Kardashian, 41, and Fox, 32.

The curvy model took to Instagram to share her take on the provocative photos, explaining that her recovery is all about body inclusivity.

In an Instagram post, the Sports Illustrated model shared multiple side-by-side photos of herself looking like Kardashian from her recent SKIMS swimsuit shoot.

“Fat girls can rock that ‘Fit,'” read the caption.

“When I saw this vintage Hollywood shoot for Kim’s SKIMS line go live, I knew right away I had to recreate it on a curvier body type,” she continued.

“Someone as iconic as Kim Kardashian, who has so much power over beauty standards, I wanted to show you that you can look just as iconic by wearing the same thing in a larger body.”

SKIMS’ ’70s-inspired swimwear collection motivated Halikas to show her 182,000+ followers how bodies of all sizes can pull through the look despite the lack of media diversity.

“If we think about old Hollywood and the stars of that time, they were always super skinny. It was “in” back then and considered beautiful,” added Halikas.

“So when I saw this shoot, I thought about the importance of showing the same vintage Hollywood glamour, but in a size 14 instead.”

The model explained that her goal is to change the “narrative around beauty” by recreating the outfits.

She concluded: “The coolest thing is that we’re all beautiful in our own way. We’re all so unique and that should be celebrated, not whether or not we fit the ‘beauty standards’.”

She also called out Kardashian for her lack of diversity, noting that there “were not many curve or plus-size models in the campaign,” before adding that she was “ready” to step in.

And this wasn’t the first time the model recreated popular looks to change beauty standards in terms of size.

The model went viral for recreating popular looks in the past, previously posing in two of Fox’s scandalous ensembles.

Halikas recreated two of the other model’s most iconic styles as she shared side-by-side photos of her with similar looks.

In one post, she recreated Fox’s eye-catching black and white Calvin Klein lingerie set, which she paired with a denim jacket while shopping.

In her caption, she wrote: “For so long, more revealing outfits have only been accepted by thinner women, while it’s too ‘inappropriate’, ‘too scandalous’ and ‘too’ for a curvier woman to wear the exact same fit sexually.”‘

She added: “Although this seizure was my most scandalous to date, I can honestly say I have never felt more relieved walking into this store.
