SI Swimsuit issue 2010 Cover girl Brooklyn Decker

Last night’s Sports Illustrated 2010 Swimsuit launch event as expected was a fabulous affair filled with some of the most gorgeous young ladies in the world. Anointed by SI, these bombshells mixed, mingled and dazzled the guests with their beauty and sparkling personalities. The night belonged to Brooklyn Decker though, who after 5 years of working with SI scored her first cover. This lands her in the rare pantheon of SI cover models, many of whom are household names today. The best thing about Brooklyn? She is as genuine and sweet as she is stunning. A perfect 10 indeed!

See below for pics and their memorable moments/thoughts about the shoots.

Cintia Dicker, wearing Gucci with her Marilyn agent Kwok. Cintia’s thoughts on her SI shoot this year: “It was so amazing and sexy from everything I normally do.”

Damaris Lewis wears Herve Leger. “It was an experience that went straight to the sky!” (hint: check the issue to see what she means)

Sonia Dara with Elite, wearing Alice & Olivia: “It was such an honor being the first Indian girl in SI.” This Harvard student proves that brains and beauty are utterly alluring.

One of our faves, Anne Vyalitsyna wears Alexander Wang, (with Women agent, Stephanie). Anne: “Ah Lisbon, so beautiful, I really remember the tiles (of Lisbon). Also Darcy playing Brazilian music to get me in the right mood for the shoot.”

The girls love Diane Smith, the doyenne of SI. Here with Julie Henderson/NY Models (in Marc Jacobs) who says: “The location looked like Mars, it was out of this world.”

Genevieve: “It’s a sexy history lesson. The WWII heroes took us around and explained what the planes were used for”.
Dominique “It ain’t over till the sea cucumber squirts!” (check the behind the scenes videos on Dominique’s shoot)

Brooklyn Decker (in Donna Karan) and her family, brother Jordan, mom Tessa, dad Steve (missing, sister Kate). When asked how they raised such a lovely young lady, Tessa replies: “We always knew where she was and who her friends (and their parents) were. If you asked Brooklyn, she would probably say we were the strictest parents in the world.” Whatever it was, it worked, Tessa!

    How do they choose these girls that are gonna be on the cover.. how come the girls inside are always much more suitable for the cover than the actual cover girl? Take Cintia or Jessica W for instance, especially Cintia, she would be perfect for the cover. Or if they absolutely have to put a blonde on it, Anne V would’ve been a much better choice than Brooklyn. Not hating on Brooklyn, just bored with her look. Good for her though!

    Love Dani, Cinthia and Brooklyn…
