THIS MONTHS Lucire features Brooklyn Decker, best
known for appearing in Sports Illustrateds Swimsuit
Edition. Decker was highly recommended by Jon Moe, one of Lucires
long-time print edition contributors, not only for her earlier SI
appearances, but for her rising profile: she may soon grace television
screens, having finished shooting a pilot with Leslie Nielsen for
2007 release, in which she plays a villain and principal love interest.
Ohio-born Decker was discovered in a shopping mall in Charlotte,
NC, and made her SI Swimsuit Edition début in the
2006 issue. Raised in Charlotte, she is a huge supporter of her
home state, a fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Carolina
The bios that record her as being born in Middletown,
Ohio are from Deckers childhood: her family was, indeed, there,
for less than a year during her childhood, and her grandparents
currently reside there.
The other story making the rounds on the internet,
that she was named after a horse called Brook, is true. Brooklyn
is a longer version of Brookand neither parent, at the time,
had been to New York. Her parents both work in the medical fieldher
father working with pacemakers, and her mother is a nurseand
are reportedly totally supportive of her fast-rising modelling career.
Now based in New York, Moe reached out to Decker
and convinced her to appear in Lucires
issue 21. On this page are images that do not appear in that

Secret and J.
C. Penney. She has also spent part of her modelling career in
