Brooks Nader was named one of four 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue cover models, making her fifth year with the brand the most memorable one yet. The Louisiana native was first discovered through the brand’s open casting call in 2019, when she was named winner of the Swim Search. She’s returned to the magazine ever since, and was photographed for this year’s magazine in the Dominican Republic, where she worked with photographer James Macari.
When the SI Swimsuit team crashed Nader’s photo shoot with Electric Picks last month to tell her she’d landed the cover, the model was at a loss for words.
“No, this is not actually happening, I don’t believe it,” Nader said through tears at the time. “I was honored enough to be in the magazine so I never thought that I would actually be on the cover. I don’t really even know what to say.”
For her soon-to-be iconic cover, Nader donned an incredible cherry red Baywatch-inspired one-piece swimsuit by Matthew Bruch. She accessorized with chunky black-and-white bracelets by Noir provided by New York Vintage, as well as earrings by Electric Picks x Brooks Nader. To get the look, shop these five similar styles below.
Nearly identical to Nader’s cover look, this suit has the classic high-cut leg and plunging back that’s synonymous with Pamela Anderson’s Baywatch character, C.J. Parker.
This belted option provides some added visual interest, while still featuring a high-cut leg and plunging back in a fiery red color.
With a bit higher of a neckline, this ribbed swimsuit is a great option if you’re looking for some more coverage up top. Plus, it doubles as a bodysuit!
Built in compression hugs your curves so you’ll feel confident whether you’re lounging poolside or at the beach.
This option provides more coverage on the bottom if you’re not up for a super cheeky moment. Plus, the criss-cross straps in the back provide added bust support.
