Model Brooklyn Decker landed the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover this year, including become the new face of La Senza’s Valentine lingerie. The 22-year-old wife of tennis star Andy Roddick said being chosen for the front is “the news of a lifetime.”
Decker said, though, that because Sports Illustrated encourages a natural look — less makeup, toned muscles, curvy shape — it’s easier to get a great photograph. “This celebrates the girls and their personalities. I think it’s why they get such beautiful pictures.”


Decker has also been among the models who have been mentioned as the SI’s possible 2010 cover girl. But the magazine has floated several names, and Brooklyn says “We’re actually the last ones to find out.”
