Brooklyn Decker for The New York Times

Posted by andre with No Comments

WHAT I’M WEARING NOW An Iro dress and an Acne jacket. The shoes are Marni, and the necklace is from Shourouk.

STYLE CREDO I like to be more covered up than one might think. My agent always says to show my fig- ure, but I like to be more relaxed and loose. My style is sweet tomboy. The main thing is to have a bal- ance. If you show your legs, try not to show any- thing else. Or if something is snug, it shouldn’t be too revealing. I pick what I’m going to accentuate.

FAVORITE DESIGNERS I like Maje. They’re based in France, but I hear they are opening a store in New York soon. They have cool, easy pieces that are ver- satile. I travel all the time, so I need clothes to walk around in, then wear to an important work meeting. Iro is very cool, Elizabeth and James, and I like the Bird line from Juicy. Miu Miu is my dream designer.

STYLE INSPIRATION I love and follow the Man Repel- ler. I couldn’t wear what she does on a daily basis, but she’s so refreshing and entertaining. She’s pro- gressive and has incredibly good taste in fashion, but has a sense of humor about it and has fun. It should be fun.

FALL PURCHASES My Isabel Marant sneakers. I searched for them forever because they were sold out all over. They had one pair left at Barneys in my size. I’ve worn them every day since I bought them. And a pair of Elizabeth and James brown leather pants that are really comfortable, like warmer leg- gings. The brown is unique as opposed to typical black leather pants.

6th Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala

Posted by andre with No Comments

While researching the 6th Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala (September 21, 2011 to include cocktails, dinner, a live auction and an intimate performance by Sir Elton John) I was sucked into Roddicks Twitter Feed after I noticed him retweeting like it was his last day on earth. It started with one ‘update’ he sent to his 719,000+ fans around the world:

“We will never forget…… I am a proud American.”

And after that, Roddick literally retweeted hundreds and hundreds of some of the messages he received in response from fans around the world…and it made for a beautiful read.  Granted, many athletes were sharing 9/11 messages-but Andy seemed to be the only one retweeting and not watching football (thank gawd).

For those not sucked into the Twitter void yet, here’s a small sampling of the messages Roddick received and retweeted for all to read:

Your friends in Canada stand with you today to join in remembering heroes of 9/11 and thanking and blessing the USA.

 I’m from Brazil and I stand with you and your country. God bless the USA. We will never forget.

 Many in Honduras, as I have, either worked or studied in the US, we are all together with every American on this anniversary!

 Japan is with you Andy, we will never forget.

 Hi Andy. Its 11pm here in the Philippines but I’m still watching CNN to remember 9/11. Filipinos are with you.

 We here from Kuwait take the hats off to all Americans, what a great nation!

 Condolences from Pakistan for all the victims of the horrendous tragedy of 9/11.10 years down the line – we will never forget!

 Horrible tragedy will never be forgotten all over the world… I am Ukrainian. I don’t want this to happen again.

I am from Venezuela and together we stand I am proud to live in the United States We Remember.

 Hi Andy. I’m here at Saudi Arabia, watching Al Jazeera to commemorates 9/11 attack. What a great nation you have.

 Fuerza from Peru. What happened 10 years ago is difficult to forget. I’m sure all the world is with America today #9.11Tweet

 Thought are for 9.11 from South Africa

 From Chile our thoughts are for all the American people this 9/11

 Prayers from Scotland. The solidarity of your nation is so admirable on 9/11. Difficult times. Stay strong all x

The messages to Roddick keep coming from the Netherlands, Scotland, Columbia, Uruguay, Indonesia, Israel, Dubai, Ecuador, Czech Republic, Vietnam, India and Algeria…essentially giving me reason to believe that twitter really isn’t such a bad thing after all.

In 2001 Andy began the Andy Roddick Foundation, a charity dedicated to “Serving Children Today for Tomorrow.” The goal of the Andy Roddick Foundation is to improve the quality of life and enhance educational and economic opportunities for all children based on the principles of respect for family, education and morality. To date the foundation has raised more than $10 million.
