Cintia Dicker, who is best known for bikini photo shoots, Victoria’s Secret and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, is the latest pin-up for Men’s Health magazine, which seems to be less about men these days and more about women.
If health and sex is the magazine’s mission, Dicker is a great choice for its regular feature, “Women of MH.” She’s as healthy looking as a sexy model can be.
Dicker, 25, grew up in Brazil in the rough-hewn territory of Campo Bom, Rio Grande do Sul, which resembles West Virginia. “We didn’t have money,” Dicker tells the magazine. “Like, nothing. Not even food sometimes.”

Her father died when she was three, leaving her and her mother to live with grand parents who were farmers. But Dicker’s natural red hair and freckles made her a standout, and when she visited a local mall at 14, she was spotted by a modeling agency scout.
“I had no idea what in the world was waiting for me,” she says. “I thought I was just going to be doing some pictures and they were going to pay me, like, five bucks.”
But the stunning 5’10” tall beauty had all the makings of an international fashion model. “Different is better,” she says. “I get more jobs being different.”
Indeed, Dicker has come full circle. She has appeared in campaigns for Ann Taylor, Macy’s, L’Oréal, American Eagle Outfitters and Yves Saint Laurent.
She’s a regular for Victoria’s Secret and has covered publications like French Marie Claire, Elle, Madame Figaro and Brazilian Vogue and Teen Vogue.
And Sports Illustrated can’t get enough of her. She’s appeared in their coveted swimsuit issue for four years running. Check out her photos to see why.
