Much of the allure exerted by the exotic atolls and sandy beaches of the Caribbean comes from fervid imaginings of the lovely native creatures gamboling bikini-clad and topless through the frothy, warm surf. No visualization of island femininity is more likely to pop a dreamer's thermometer than Bahamian beauty Shakara Ledard. Even if she weren't posing to sell Dove moisturizing bars or cocking her drum-tight buns in a national Levi's campaign, one look at Shakara's supernaturally gleaming ebony countenance and matching mouth-watering body would be enough to know that here glows a model of the genus super. Aside from providing full-color sensationalism to the Victoria's Secret bible of lingerie, Shakara's dusky peaks and curves are prominent in that definitive resource for athletic apparel, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Spurts more than sports came to mind when Shakara's chocolate nipples popped up unfettered and nibble ready in MTV Uncensored - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2001 (2001).
