Is Tennis Champ Naomi Osaka A 'Baby-Faced Assasin'? Allure August 2019 Skims the Surface

Abdul Sillah is hardly a household name in the sports world. At a time when Donald Trump is telling people of color to go back where they came from, it’s noteworthy that Sillah arrived in the United States from Sierra Leone.

AOC discovered Sillah reading Allure Magazine’s August 2019 cover story featuring rising tennis star Naomi Osaka. Lensed for Allure by Wai Lin Tse, Naomi Osaka didn’t know that she would be eliminated at July 2019 Wimbledon in her first round, losing to Yulia Putlintseva.

Unlike Serena Williams, whose powerful muscles dominate the pages of fashion shoots, Osaka’s do not. Sillah has trained both women, giving him a comparative lens into the superb two athletes.

Model, actor and author Paulina Porizkova, now 54, was at age 18 the first woman from Central Europe to take a cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 1984.

Paulina is back for the 2019 SI Swimsuit Issue, trusting the instincts of editor MJ Day. AOC doesn’t know how this newly-formated swimsuit issue will deliver, but MJ Day deserves an Oscar of some kind. Day is truly trying to break new ground in traditionally-rigid male gaze territory.

Paulina Porizkova let’s it rip, confronting ageism head-on, no flinching. Congrats to both women, because we need more of this.
