UNC women’s basketball standout Deja Kelly is one of two college basketball stars to land a major ambassador deal with Forever 21 and Sports Illustrated.
Another day, another major ambassador deal for UNC women’s basketball star Deja Kelly.
I’m honored to have been chosen as an ambassador for the @forever21 x @sportsillustrated Summer Capsule Campaign! Being a hooper, a lot of people are used to only seeing me on the court. Embracing my femininity has always been a priority of mine. This partnership was so special! pic.twitter.com/qyQDK5Nedu

Kelly announced that she has partnered with Forever 21 and Sports Illustrated for what is called a Summer Capsule Campaign. Along with UCLA basketball player Natalie Chou and model Stephanie Rosa, the trio will be representing a limited-edition swim collection.
The campaign was inspired by women who believe feeling confident and sexy is a state of mind. The company selected these three women to represent the brand due to the fact that they best capture the essence of the collection.
This collection includes 26 items ranging from one-pieces, bikinis, and cover-ups that come in bold and neutral colors. Prices for these items range from $17.99 to $34.99, and the collection is available in a variety of sizes. All items can be purchased at any Forever 21 store.
Kelly continues to dominate the NIL game, as she’s already inked deals with some popular brands, such as Beats by Dre, Dunkin Donuts, and Outback Steakhouse. This deal seems to have a different impact on Kelly, as she stated in her Twitter announcement that “Embracing my feminity has always been a priority of mine.”
As her brand continues to grow, you could expect that more endorsement deals are on the way for the UNC women’s basketball standout.
