Brooklyn Decker Covers 'Self' February 2011

Brooklyn Decker Covers 'Self' February 2011

Brooklyn Decker is pretty in pink on the cover of Self magazine’s February 2011 issue!

Here’s what the 23-year-old model and Just Go with It actress had to share:

On splurging – but not too much: “I love Target! You can get trendy, fantastic pieces there. Invest big money only on the classics, like a trench coat, great jeans or black heels. I recently saw this beautiful leather jacket at Gucci. I was, like, I’ll splurge. I’ve worked hard. Then I looked at the price: $10,000! For a jacket! I wanted to vomit on myself. I found one I loved for less than a tenth of that – it was still expensive, but since it is a classic, I know I’ll have it forever, and it goes with everything. I don’t feel guilty about it at all.”

On the importance of appreciating yourself: “When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape. People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele body again! The grass is always greener. The best advice my mother gave me was to accept everyone for who they are, and you have to do that for yourself, as well.”

Brooklyn also shared a funny story about working with Adam Sandler – when Jennifer Aniston walked by on set, he whispered, “Try not to call her Rachel Green!” Of course, that was all Brooklyn could think of when they finally met…

Is she trying to put Gisele down?? So stupid. Everyone has complexes as kids. Some kids more than others but by her words thats pretty normal.

# 2

She has it rough……rolling eyes here. Give me a break.

# 3

awful dress choice of the editor.brooklyn seems to have a nice personality

# 4

She is so cheap as usual.

# 5

HEY JARED, PLEASE BRING BACK THE RED AND GREEN ARROWS. YOU TAKEN ALL THE FUN AWAY. THE RED AND GREEN ARROW TEAM

She doesn’t need a boyish body like Gisele’s. Gisele’s boyish body is popular in High Fashion because the industry is run by gay men and skinny women who think that’s attractive.

She looks better than Gisele, though I think her hips are too wide.

Gisele’s boyish body is popular in HighFashion because the industry is run by gay men and skinny, fashionista women who find that adrogyny attractive. She’s better looking than Gisele, even if she doesn’t have an ideal shape and her hips are wide.

We get it, u have boobs. U don’t have to keep shoving them in our faces. Cover up sometimes, ho bag.
@Lass: Way to still throw in a burn right at the end there lol!!

Why the hate? I think she’s really pretty I have seen most of her interviews and she comes off as a nice girl.

AWW why must all up and coming models fans starts comparisons to gisele? same thing happens with other icons like linda,kate,cindy. pathetic. If they had any talent they could stand on their own. Apparently that’s not the case with this average yawn inducing model. I should be seeing the name Marisa Miller mentioned, not gisele, lol. Gisele is not a league many models can reach. Dreams are good, but please aim lower.

hmm and that’s why Gisele is a Victorias Secret icon and on Vogue covers, not Self my 50 year old mama reads. Brookie please keep other names outta your mouth. how old is brook? 23? Gisele was an icon at that age, lmfaooooooooooooooooo. give it up Brooklyn and Brooklyn fans.

commercial vs. High fashion models should never be compared. Some models are better in Sears catalogs and some are more suited for Versace campaigns.

gisele>>>>>>>>> brooklyn

Brooklyn>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Gisele

I like what she said about the leather jacket. She called Gucci out – NICE!
Prices are getting ridiculous.

“Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves” — oh really? Don’t you mean you BOUGHT curves? Why can’t people just be honest about getting breast augmentations? It’s not that big of a deal.

Self? haha lol Isn’t Heidi Klum on self covers at age 30 something? Brooklyn does look like a 30 something housewife though. yawn.

I saw her twitter. Girl is obsessed with Gisele though. She tweets alot about her. Now in her interviews? lmao. Seems like Brookie has some underlying insecurities.

@bigghuge:

IA. comparing cheap commercial models to successful high fashion models is like comparing Snooki to Angelina Jolie. It’s not happening and just doesn’t make much sense.

i thought reese witherspoon had put on weight or something

@lauren I’m pretty sure her curves are 100% natural.

” Boyish,” Giselle body? Huh? Giselle is called “the body” in supermodel world for a reason is she not? I’m glad the gal was NOT picked for Transformers 3.
