Brooklyn Decker is only 22, so it’s easy to forget that she now has been doing this supermodel thing for five years running. But the southwestern Ohio native, who appeared in last year’s SI swimsuit issue wearing only body paint, had never notched the elusive cover of that annual, until now.
SI keeps the cover photo a secret — even from the models — until less than 24 hours before it’s revealed. Decker said now the mad dash was on to find outfits for TV appearances that will come with the gig. –via Huffpo.
Brooklyn, of course, is the wife of tennis player Andy Roddick, so it’s amazing that she didn’t simply advance to the cover shot finals and then choke it away. We’ll have more from the SI issue throughout the day, as we (finally) return to a full day of posting. Stick around.
