Brooks Nader stuns at star-studded Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue launch party in NYC

The 2022 Sports illustrated Swimsuit Issue is now available in print.

As part of the promotional push for the coveted edition, a star-studded red carpet event was held at the brand new Hard Rock Hotel New York on Thursday.

Among the bevy of beauties to strike a pose in front of admiring fans and photographers was Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooks Nader, who was all about flaunting her cleavage in a revealing black gown.

Wow! Brooks Nader, 26, turned more then a few heads in a revealing black gown as she arrived to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue release party at the Hard Rock Hotel in NYC on Thursday

The striking full-length number had an asymmetrical plunging neckline decked out in black satin ruffles.

Small black ropes across the chest and midsection held the daring bodice in place.

The gown also had a daring thigh-high slit that allowed Nader to show off her shapely legs.

She gave her statuesque 5ft9in an added lift with a pair of platform open toe heels that were a perfect match for the ensemble.

And on this day the Louisiana native decided to pull her long brown tresses into a stylish bun with the exception of some strands of hair she left out to frame her face.

Right before heading out to the SI swimsuit edition release party, Nader took to Instagram and posted an image of herself that landed in the pages of Sports Illustrated.

She could be seen sprawled out on her back in a black bikini, all while the waves came crashing in all around her body.

Showing she has a great sense of humor, the model also shared a video that showed her falling down hard on her derriere while the photographer was trying to get the perfect shot.

‘When people say modeling is easy scroll for the reality of what it took to get the perfect shot!! Worth the bum bruises!  @si_swimsuit @jamesmacari,’ she wrote in the caption.

As part of the Sports Illustrated promo push, Nader and fellow model Cindy Kimberly stopped by Citi Field in Queens, New York to take part in a baseball tradition before the Mets and Cardinals game on Wednesday night.

‘DREAM COME TRUE! Threw the 1st pitch at the @mets game last night with my @si_swimsuit sis @wolfiecindy,’ Nader gushed in the caption of her Instagram post, before adding ‘and we kinda nailed it?!! what do you think?’

Despite looking worried about how her throw would be judged, Nader actually made a pretty good throw to her catcher. In fact, it was better than many other celebrities who have made the first-pitch throw over the years.

While not quite as good, Kimberly’s throw did in fact make it to her catcher as well, albeit with one bounce into his glove.

It appears as though Nader brought a bit of good luck to the Mets, as they ended up winning Wednesday’s game over St. Louis 11-4, and again on Thursday afternoon with a 7-6 win.

Nader actually got her big break when she won Sports Illustrated’s first-ever #SISwimSearch open casting call that resulted in her appearing in its coveted swimsuit addition in 2019.
