Women Go Viral for Their Beach Looks

8:00:00 PM

Five young women broke the Internet when they shared photos of themselves at the beach recently. Their monochromatic swimsuits set against the seascape background went viral on Twitter, receiving more than 105,000 likes and 33,000 retweets.

Raejeen Walker, 19, Nija Imani, 22, Arianna Morris, 19, Chantal Tharrington, 26, and Khali Brewer, 18, collaborated with aspiring photographer LyKerria Richardson and makeup artist Anasia Blueford for the photo shoot. 

Imani tells Yahoo Style, Rae decided it would be a great concept to get a group of females together to do a shoot that empowered women of color, she says. A shoot that showed us being comfortable in our own skin and embracing one another. So thats just what we did.

The women are overwhelmed with the attention their photos have received. I had no thought that our pictures would actually reach as far as they did, Imani says. It felt so unreal â€" I was so amazed, yet humbled. I was most thankful to have had the opportunity to share our message with thousands. It was truly a remarkable experience.

Morris, another of the participants, agrees. She tells Yahoo Style that the group of friends hopes to inspire others to embrace their beauty regardless of color. I feel like we are getting a message across for young black women to love their skin color and not be ashamed. Black girls are lovely â€" black girls are smart and they rock, she says.
