Sports Illustrated’s 50 Greatest Swimsuit Models

Posted by clau with No Comments

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s website SwimDaily.com released this week a list of the 50 Greatest Swimsuit Models and of course Brooklyn was part of the list, in fact she made it all the way to the Top 10 in #7 ranking higher than some iconic SI models such as Daniela Pestova, Paulina Porizkova and Christie Brinkley. Even though Brooklyn is our #1 girl (and will always be) we’re happy to see the SwimDaily staff ranked Brooklyn so well. Here’s what they had to say about Brooklyn and what she had to say about her experience with the magazine

7. Brooklyn Decker

Hometown: Kettering, Ohio
Years in Swimsuit Issue: 6 (2006-2011)
Social: Twitter | Facebook | Instagram

Decker, an Ohio native, was first featured in the 2006 Swimsuit issue. She then appeared in six consecutive issues, including the 2010 cover, and hosted a behind-the-scenes television special in 2007. She will be starring in the CBS sitcom Friends With Better Lives this fall.

Random Fact: Decker is married American retired tennis pro Andy Roddick. They first met after Roddick saw Decker in the Swimsuit issue, and had his agent contact her for a date.

QUOTABLE

On her favorite swimsuit memory: “Shooting in the Maldives with Walter Iooss. It was my fifth or sixth year, so at that point the SI crew had become a traveling family to me. Walter and I clicked immediately. We just ran around the beach all day long and told stories at night. That turned out to be the year that I was on the cover. It was the most beautiful ocean I have ever seen in my life. It was a pretty special shoot.”


On her career since first swimsuit appearance: “SI made my career. Truly. They are one of the smartest companies out there because they invest in their girls. They gave me a show with Dr. Z (“She Says, Z Says”) when I was 19, making weekly football picks. From there I got my first TV pilot…then it just snowballed. SI Swimsuit scouts unknown talent, turns them into brands, and shortly after everyone else catches on!”


On her favorite all-time swimsuit model: “It has to be Marisa Miller. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that when I came on as a rookie, she was one of the nicest people I had met and continues to be supportive and wonderful to this day. (Not to mention her perfect abs/booty/body- don’t even get me started on that!)”
