Actress Sanaa Lathan is a show stopper and head turner that has fans swooning over a pic of her in a nearly nude swimsuit.
The “Love and Basketball” star gave people on social a sight for sore eyes when posed for photos in the tempting one-piece with a red lip, her braided hair in a bun and dangling earrings.
Lathan accompanied the simple pic with an equally simple caption that read, “Black woman. White bathing suit. Cabo.”
“Owww…Don’t hurt em now!! 🔥🔥🔥❤️,” wrote one person.
“GAHT DAMN! And beauty is her name!,” exclaimed another.
“In that order 😍😍😍😍😍😍🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥,” and “Woah ma’am 😍😍😍😍😍💖💖”
“Okay, I see ya! You look beautiful. 🔥🔥🔥🔥”
The beauty is seldom seen baring her figure in outfits that reveal that much skin so it only makes sense that fans were left gasping for air while staring in awe at the actress.
Since transforming her appearance with the big chop for the film adaptation of the book “Nappily Ever After” two years ago, Lathan has played around with several looks.
From twistouts, braids, long wavy wigs, puffs and her signature straight looks the 48-year-old Lathan has looked nothing short of gorgeous.
“I didn’t do a whole lot of other prep for that scene, because I wanted to let whatever happen happen,” said Lathan in 2018 about cutting her hair off on camera for the film. “But I was shocked by the roller coaster of emotions I felt. The entire 10 minutes felt like a complete out-of-body experience,” she added.
In a world of superficiality and urge to alter one’s looks to be more ‘socially appealing,’ Lathan’s commitment to her character in the film, and commitment to daring to be bold in her existence is a daily reminder to black women that they are beautiful regardless of how they choose to rock their hair.
