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!)”

If you’re missing Brooklyn’s work for SI as much as we do, go ahead and check all pictures from her six-year run with the magazine in our gallery

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.”
