It was only fitting the location for Brooks Nader’s 2022 SI Swimsuit photo shoot was as breathtaking as the Baton Rouge native herself. Nader, along with SI models Josephine Skriver, Lorena Duran, Duckie Thot, Olivia Ponton, Yumi Nu and Katie Austin were shot by James Macari on the European seaside for an unforgettable 2022 feature.

Among the head-to-toe looks Nader sported: sunburnt and neutral-toned swimsuits paired with delicate gold jewelry. As exotically chic as the images are, Nader did admit to an accidental stumble while inching too close to a slippery rock. Fortunately, she wasn’t injured and went on with the photo shoot like a pro.

Nader has been part of SI Swimsuit since winning the 2019 Swim Search at the age of 26. She has been featured by SI Swimsuit every year since.

“Sports Illustrated literally launched me, launched my career, made other people realize that everything is accepted, everything is O.K., it’s O.K. to be you, and this is the only shoot that I’m literally never nervous for, I’m just excited for, so I feel like that speaks volumes about the team, the experience, like the whole vibe of SI Swimsuit and I’m so lucky to be a part of this family," Nader revealed during a photo shoot for SI Swimsuit 2021.

At the moment, Nader is enjoying the perks of cold weather, sharing glam photos from Aspen dressed head to toe in form-fitting ski gear. Does it really matter if her skills on the slope aren’t as great as those on the beach? “At least I look the part,” she captioned cheekily.

Before she's ready to don a bikini again, below are six exotic images from Nader’s 2022 Montenegro photo shoot.
