Brooklyn Decker Remembers First Time She Shaved Her Legs

Model Brooklyn Decker recently talked razors with Glamour.com and she shared the story of the first time she ever shared her legs.

Decker recalled:

I was 11 years old, and very hairy. After playing in a soccer game, my mom came up and saw my long blonde leg hairs glistening in the sun and said "okay honey, it's time." She was right there with me. We got a special fool-proof razor, and fancy shaving cream but I was only allowed to shave up to my knees!

And the rest is beauty history, with Decker landing the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover 12 years later.
