The Victory Journal 'Float Like a Butterfly' editorial offers a romantic interpretation of perhaps the most famous quote from Muhammad Ali, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Model Elsa Hosk channels the famous boxer in a pair of classic Everlast shorts and nothing else, which is exactly how all male boxers fight. Taking to the water to train, she strikes fighter stances at one moment and at another she floats serenely on the surface.

Shot by photographer Chadwick Tyler, the Victory Journal 'Float Like a Butterfly' editorial appears in the magazine's latest issue. Styled by Nicole Vitagliano, the visual essay is captured almost entirely in black and white, which gives it a documentary aesthetic. Stats for Boxer-Inspired Editorials Trending: Older & Average
