Brooklyn Decker On Taking It All Off

Posted by andre with No Comments

The Sports Illustrated alum turns our fantasy into a reality by telling MF what goes on behind the scenes at swimsuit issue photo shoots.

In your mind, the best part of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is probably imagining what goes on behind the scenes when the shoot is taking place: a bunch of scantily clad models running around in the sand, it sounds like paradise. And during a recent interview, 2010 Swimsuit Issue cover model Brooklyn Decker made it clear to us that the real deal is, in fact, a lot like your fantasy.

MF: The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue just came out. As someone who’s been on the cover, what do you think it takes for a girl to land that coveted spot?

BD: “I wish I had the answer to that. They didn’t tell me until the day before it came out, so I didn’t know. It was my sixth or seventh year shooting. I did Sports Illustrated for so long and every year you do cover tries, so you always think there could be a chance. And then they don’t tell you until like the day or two before. So I have no idea what the formula is. They tell us it’s just based on the image and if it’s a powerful enough image or not. I don’t know what else goes into it. I hear there’s like secret testing that goes on. But it’s like Fort Knox over there. No one tells anyone anything–it’s all rumored and we’re all kind of kept in the dark.”

Every guy wants to know what goes on behind the scenes at the swimsuit issue shoots.

“It’s like a vacation with your family. I mean, Sports Illustrated–they are like family. I haven’t done it in two years, and they’re still like family to me. It’s not work at all. It’s so much fun. I mean, you have long hours, but you’re on the beach with your friends. The trips and photo shoots are as legendary as people hope they are. They’re really fun, I have to say.”

What’s your favorite swimsuit cover of all time?

“I really loved Marisa Miller’s cover, just because I love Marisa. She’s a friend of mine, and I just adore her. Heidi Klum is incredible. Paulina Porizkova years ago, I think she was 18 when she got her first cover. She was unbelievable too, and so beautiful. I really love the classic covers, I really do.”

Who’s someone you’d love to see on a cover?

“Chrissy Teigen. She’s one of my best girlfriends. I’ve known her for years. Jessica Gomes, too, because she has also been doing it for years. I mean all the girls who I started out with who are now in like their eighth or ninth year, I root for those girls every issue. So fingers crossed for next year!”

Would you have taken it all off and done the body paint thing if you were still doing it?

“I already did it once. I think five years ago. And I was kind of shy about doing it, just because, you know, everything’s out there. I got to cover my top, which sounds crazy but it was actually more covered than just being painted. I get to say that I did it once, which was enough for me.”

Brooklyn Decker’s Bikini Body and Beauty Secrets

This week, brother site Esquire just dubbed Brooklyn Decker the winner of their Sexiest Woman Alive contest (think March Madness brackets but with women). The 23-year-old beat out Heidi Klum, not an easy feat. So when we got the chance this week to chat with Brooklyn, who was in town for a mere moment promoting her upcoming film, Just Go with It, and her partnership with Gillette Venus Embrace Disposables (hey, someone’s got to handle the task of keeping those legs smooth!), we jumped at it. We’ve had a girl crush on Brooklyn for years and have been dying to know what she is doing that we seemed to miss the memo on in the amazing-body category. Just as curious? Read below to see what beauty trends Brooklyn is loving lately, the products she would die without, and how she stays looking so damn good.

RB: Clearly, you spend many an hour in a swimsuit — what’s your secret for looking so good?

BD: It’s work, a lot of work. I try to make healthy decisions and I work out a lot. I hear girls say all the time, ‘I eat cheeseburgers and just look this good’ and that’s so frustrating to hear as a woman. For me, I really do have to work at it.

RB: Tell us about your beauty routine. What are the products you’re using?

BD: I travel so much that if I’m wearing makeup all the time it wreaks havoc on my skin. I’m obsessed with Cetaphil. I use it every day. I also SPF every day, add some mascara, and that’s it. I don’t worry about throwing on tons of makeup because I need my skin to breathe when I’m not working.

RB: What’s your favorite look for a red carpet?

BD: I love to punch up the eyes. I have blue eyes so I love using plums, coppers, even reds. It brings out all the natural flecks, and your eyes look really cool. CoverGirl Smoky Shadowblast duos are great for this because they come paired in great colors that make your eyes really pop. I feel like people are afraid to use color, but if done right it looks amazing.

RB: What’s one beauty trend you’re glad to see go?

BD: Crimped hair! First, it’s so damaging, and it just looks like a big frizz poof!

RB: What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received?

BD: Mixing baking soda with your face wash. I got this tip from another model; she does it once a week and it’s a great exfoliator. A makeup artist also once used lip balm on my lips, cheeks, and eyes. It gave me a glowing, dewy look and that was the only makeup I had on for the shoot. That’s a great secret if you’re on the go and have nothing on you but some balm.

P.S. In case you were wondering, taking a picture next to the gorgeous gazelle that is Brooklyn Decker when you’ve been up since 7 a.m. is beyond intimidating. But it did make my guy friends extremely jealous. Just another day on the job, folks.

Brookie’s Q&A with Esquire Magazine!

Posted by clau with No Comments

As you all know Brookie is in the finals of Esquire’s ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ tournament & she did a little Q&A  with the magazine … Here you have it!

Brooklyn Decker, Hustler?

In a courtside chat, the young finalist from the Music and Fashion region claims she doesn’t stand a chance against her versatile swimsuit predecessor. And we don’t believe one word of it.

We knew Brooklyn Decker was serious when she blew out George Clooney’s pal in the first round of Sexiest Woman Alive Madness 2010. But then, despite wearing her trademark yellow uniform, came a move no one expected — a play so well designed we’re surprised Phil Jackson hasn’t broken it out in those other finals: Decker unveiled the bikini cartwheel, and swiftly defeated not one, not two, but three Victoria’s Secret models. No wonder she traded water and sand for new teammates Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in the upcoming film Just Go with It, reportedly based on her tournament battle cry. We caught up with her in the middle of what seems, according to her Twitter feed, like a very distracting road schedule. Not that we were really taking her seriously. —Matt Sullivan

ESQUIRE: Were you surprised to make it this far in our little tournament?

BROOKLYN DECKER: I was very surprised to make it this far in the tournament. I mean, did you see the picture of me picking my nose? I’ve had a very lucky year with the Sports Illustrated cover, the new movie, and now this. Let’s hope good things come in threes.

ESQ: Speaking of good things, do you think that cartwheel move helped you power through to the finals?

BD: I think my general physical prowess, whether it’s cartwheels or being able to stand in cold water for long periods of time, could only serve me well.

ESQ: What’s harder — winning this tournament or landing the SI swimsuit cover?

BD: The Sports Illustrated cover took five years to get, so I’m going to have to go with the cover. I’ve had some pretty fierce competition for the tournament, though, so I’m not discounting that.

ESQ: What’s harder — winning this tournament or beating Roger Federer?

BD: Are you asking me if I think I could beat Roger Federer in this tournament? If so, I think it really depends on the Esquire readers’ penchant for chest hair.

ESQ: What’s your game plan for the last round?

BD: Perhaps more cartwheels?

ESQ: Your opponent, Heidi Klum, is a veteran. Does she intimidate you?

BD: Absolutely! It’s not normal to look that good with three full-time jobs and four children. She’s Superwoman. You can’t beat Superwoman.

ESQ: Who’s a better coach in playoff crunch time — Andy Reid, or Andy Roddick?

BD: Definitely the love of my life… Andy Reid.
