Diggins, a guard for the Tulsa Shock who has also been featured modeling in Sport’s Illustrated, told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani that she “operates on a beauty and a beast mentality.”

“I love being strong and being fierce intense and in my competition and being able to excel on the court but also being able to mix it up and to wear a different hat and, you know, to put that makeup on or put heels on or put a dress on,” she said.

Diggins is “so in love with” her femininity and “being a woman,” which she said is an integral part of being a role model for other women.
