“Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in,” she captioned a post of images from her magazine shoot. “WOW…Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence. Living up to [the] name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous.”

After dropping her daughter off at school and arriving at the photoshoot in sweatpants and a beanie, Taylor said that she was surprised when the photographer told her not to get glammed up.

“I was like, ‘SO LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS…I WILL BE THE SEXIEST Woman Alive IN SWEATS AND A SKULLY?’” she recalled. “As confused as I was, my heart also melted…Embrace and love yourselves for who & what you are because only the purest heart shines through. Thank you @maximmag. I am truly honored to have graced the cover.”
