Does Brooklyn Decker Look Hotter on the Red Carpet Than the Beach?

Apr 12 2014 - 6:00am

Part girl next door, part glamazon, Brooklyn Decker's the kind of girl you'd love to hate if she wasn't so downright likeable. She's made the transition from Sports Illustrated cover girl to Hollywood actress seamlessly (and seemingly overnight), she's wife to Andy Roddick, and she might just be one of our favorite Twitter feeds [1] to follow. Add to that a red carpet résumé that mixes cool-girl labels like Proenza Schouler [2] one minute, then draws from Valentino or Giambattista Valli [3] the next, and you can see how Decker has quickly become one of our favorite style setters. In honor of today's 27th birthday, we're celebrating with a look at her best red carpet moments thus far.
