SI Swimsuit model Brooks Nader on style and showing skin

When it involves the pink carpet, Brooks Nader usually leaves followers in sheer amazement.

The 25-year-old model — who was included within the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for the third time this yr — went viral for her nearly-nude dress on the 2019 SI Sportsperson of the Year Awards.

Since then, she actually hasn’t stepped again from the see-through types with which she’s “obsessed” … however she has stopped studying the feedback.

“When I wore my first sheer dress…people like fully attacked me,” she advised Page Six Style.

“It can be like a little bit hurtful, but honestly I’m the type of personality that’s like, okay, cool, people wanted to hate on it? I’m totally going to do it again.”

And do it once more she did. The Louisiana native rocked two clear types at SI Swim’s 2021 celebrations: a bejeweled, multicolored Marc Bouwer mini for Miami Swim Week and a plunging silver robe for the issue’s launch party.

But whereas Nader’s clothes could look like barely there, her stylists put quite a lot of work into keeping off wardrobe malfunctions.

“You wouldn’t believe the types of things that go under there to conceal,” she advised us. “They have it down to a science … because if it were up to me, I’m sure that they know I would probably wear nothing under it and they’re like, ‘With the [camera] flashes, that’s just not an option.’”

Beyond style tape, Nader’s finest accent simply is perhaps the “new level of confidence” she’s gotten from capturing with Sports Illustrated, inspiring her to “put it all out there” on the pink carpet.

“SI Swimsuit makes me feel so comfortable. I’m like, whatever, I’m going to wear a sheer dress,” she stated, including that SI Swim editor-in-chief MJ Day calls the bikini bible’s seaside setups “the kind of shoot you can eat a burger before.”

In reality, Nader’s photoshoot prep course of entails quite a lot of boxing, consuming “a little bit clean” and staying hydrated with merchandise from SI’s companion, Vita Coco. But her strategy has shifted barely since she won the Sports Illustrated Swim Search in 2019.

“I feel like since Sports Illustrated is evolving in a more progressive direction, I have less pressure to do a crazy crash diet or something I would probably do year one, not knowing how open and accepting MJ and the brand [are],” the bikini model stated of the journal, which has been making strides toward diversity and inclusion.

But tropical cocktails weren’t the one manner the model, represented by Women Management LA, celebrated her third look within the shiny: She additionally stopped to snack on some Popeye’s hen nuggets following the launch celebration’s pink carpet.

She brings an analogous angle to her style, figuring out that whereas she’s clear about her love for clear clothes, some folks “are always going to be offended by it.”

“I mean, my mom doesn’t even think it’s the best idea, but whatever — sorry, Mom!” Nader quipped.
