Brooklyn Decker has donated and signed a pair of her jeans for Blue Jeans Go Green

Posted by andre with No Comments

Blue Jeans Go Green™ (formerly Cotton From Blue to Green™) today announced a unique auction designed to raise awareness about textile recycling and to help the program collect its one-millionth piece of denim.  Thirteen celebrities, including Brooklyn Decker, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, Britney Spears, Ryan Phillippe, Darren Criss and more, have each signed and contributed a pair of jeans for “The Great Denim Challenge,” an online auction in which denim is the currency. The bidding concludes on November 3rd.

The Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program, which began as Cotton From Blue to Green™, has diverted over 600 tons of denim from landfills since it began in 2006.  The diverted denim has been given new life in the form of nearly 2 million square feet of UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation, which has been provided to communities in need and public works projects around the U.S.

 

The auction puts up for bid 13 pairs of denim jeans, each autographed by its celebrity owner and paired with a note of thanks from the celebrity.   Like traditional auctions, the highest bidder will win the item, but the bids are denim — not dollars.  The bidder committing to recycle the highest number of denim apparel items for a particular celebrity’s jeans will be the recipient of that item.  All the denim collected will be converted into UltraTouch Denim Insulation, a portion of which will be distributed to communities in need.

 

Cotton Incorporated will host a media event in Los Angeles on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, to celebrate the millionth pair milestone.

Body Confidence Tips from Brooklyn Decker

Body Confidence Tips from Brooklyn Decker

“I just try to be the best version of myself,” says Brooklyn Decker. “Once I settled into that idea, I felt much more comfortable with myself and what I could do.” Get her tips for looking and feeling your best, all the time.
Find the silver lining. “I moved [to New York] to be a fashion model. I wanted to do runway. I wanted to be in the pages of these high fashion magazines, and I failed miserably. That’s how I ended up doing stuff like Sports Illustrated. Because my want for this high fashion supermodel life completely failed. You look for pictures. There will not be one picture of me walking on a runway. It’s not because I didn’t try, it’s because I failed at it. Now, I’m doing movies. So it definitely worked out for the better.”
Think about what you can vs. can’t do. “When when I started modeling, I used to worry about what I shouldn’t eat. Don’t eat carbs, don’t eat this, don’t eat that. Instead of restricting yourself, just fill your body with goodness–antioxidants, fiber, protein. When you start thinking of food as fuel, your mentality changes for the better.”
Consider capability over vanity. “When I first started modeling, I really hung onto the size of my body. Now, it’s so much more about capability. When I’m filming and I can go hiking for four miles or lift something heavy in a scene and I don’t get exhausted, that’s where I notice the benefits of exercise. It’s not about size. It’s about endurance, how much I can lift, how strong I feel. I’m a lot stronger, because my body is healthy and I’m not concerned with size. It took me a long while to get here, but I really appreciate it.”
Have a realistic role model. “Heidi [Klum] and I have similar bodies. We’re both athletic and we both have curves. That was not and still isn’t so accepted in the fashion world. There was a lot of pressure from designers and photographers, and you can imagine the kind of mental toll that takes on you. You put so much stock into trying to be skinny and you put so much stress on your body. You can’t wreck your body like that that, especially that young. I have an enormous amount of respect for [Heidi] and the way she’s gone about her work.”

Brooklyn Decker’s Bikini Body and Beauty Secrets

Here we have another new note/interview where Brookie give us beauty tips & talks a little bit about her new project with Gillette

Brooklyn Decker’s Bikini Body and Beauty Secrets

6/18/2010 by Colleen Moody

This week, brother site Esquire just dubbed Brooklyn Decker the winner of their Sexiest Woman Alive contest (think March Madness brackets but with women). The 23-year-old beat out Heidi Klum, not an easy feat. So when we got the chance this week to chat with Brooklyn, who was in town for a mere moment promoting her upcoming film, Just Go with It, and her partnership with Gillette Venus Embrace Disposables (hey, someone’s got to handle the task of keeping those legs smooth!), we jumped at it. We’ve had a girl crush on Brooklyn for years and have been dying to know what she is doing that we seemed to miss the memo on in the amazing-body category. Just as curious? Read below to see what beauty trends Brooklyn is loving lately, the products she would die without, and how she stays looking so damn good.

RB: Clearly, you spend many an hour in a swimsuit — what’s your secret for looking so good?

BD: It’s work, a lot of work. I try to make healthy decisions and I work out a lot. I hear girls say all the time, ‘I eat cheeseburgers and just look this good’ and that’s so frustrating to hear as a woman. For me, I really do have to work at it.

RB: Tell us about your beauty routine. What are the products you’re using?

BD: I travel so much that if I’m wearing makeup all the time it wreaks havoc on my skin. I’m obsessed with Cetaphil. I use it every day. I also SPF every day, add some mascara, and that’s it. I don’t worry about throwing on tons of makeup because I need my skin to breathe when I’m not working.

RB: What’s your favorite look for a red carpet?

BD: I love to punch up the eyes. I have blue eyes so I love using plums, coppers, even reds. It brings out all the natural flecks, and your eyes look really cool. CoverGirl Smoky Shadowblast duos are great for this because they come paired in great colors that make your eyes really pop. I feel like people are afraid to use color, but if done right it looks amazing.

RB: What’s one beauty trend you’re glad to see go?

BD: Crimped hair! First, it’s so damaging, and it just looks like a big frizz poof!

RB: What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received?

BD: Mixing baking soda with your face wash. I got this tip from another model; she does it once a week and it’s a great exfoliator. A makeup artist also once used lip balm on my lips, cheeks, and eyes. It gave me a glowing, dewy look and that was the only makeup I had on for the shoot. That’s a great secret if you’re on the go and have nothing on you but some balm.

P.S. In case you were wondering, taking a picture next to the gorgeous gazelle that is Brooklyn Decker when you’ve been up since 7 a.m. is beyond intimidating. But it did make my guy friends extremely jealous. Just another day on the job, folks.

Brookie’s Q&A with Esquire Magazine!

Posted by clau with No Comments

As you all know Brookie is in the finals of Esquire’s ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ tournament & she did a little Q&A  with the magazine … Here you have it!

Brooklyn Decker, Hustler?

In a courtside chat, the young finalist from the Music and Fashion region claims she doesn’t stand a chance against her versatile swimsuit predecessor. And we don’t believe one word of it.

We knew Brooklyn Decker was serious when she blew out George Clooney’s pal in the first round of Sexiest Woman Alive Madness 2010. But then, despite wearing her trademark yellow uniform, came a move no one expected — a play so well designed we’re surprised Phil Jackson hasn’t broken it out in those other finals: Decker unveiled the bikini cartwheel, and swiftly defeated not one, not two, but three Victoria’s Secret models. No wonder she traded water and sand for new teammates Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in the upcoming film Just Go with It, reportedly based on her tournament battle cry. We caught up with her in the middle of what seems, according to her Twitter feed, like a very distracting road schedule. Not that we were really taking her seriously. —Matt Sullivan

ESQUIRE: Were you surprised to make it this far in our little tournament?

BROOKLYN DECKER: I was very surprised to make it this far in the tournament. I mean, did you see the picture of me picking my nose? I’ve had a very lucky year with the Sports Illustrated cover, the new movie, and now this. Let’s hope good things come in threes.

ESQ: Speaking of good things, do you think that cartwheel move helped you power through to the finals?

BD: I think my general physical prowess, whether it’s cartwheels or being able to stand in cold water for long periods of time, could only serve me well.

ESQ: What’s harder — winning this tournament or landing the SI swimsuit cover?

BD: The Sports Illustrated cover took five years to get, so I’m going to have to go with the cover. I’ve had some pretty fierce competition for the tournament, though, so I’m not discounting that.

ESQ: What’s harder — winning this tournament or beating Roger Federer?

BD: Are you asking me if I think I could beat Roger Federer in this tournament? If so, I think it really depends on the Esquire readers’ penchant for chest hair.

ESQ: What’s your game plan for the last round?

BD: Perhaps more cartwheels?

ESQ: Your opponent, Heidi Klum, is a veteran. Does she intimidate you?

BD: Absolutely! It’s not normal to look that good with three full-time jobs and four children. She’s Superwoman. You can’t beat Superwoman.

ESQ: Who’s a better coach in playoff crunch time — Andy Reid, or Andy Roddick?

BD: Definitely the love of my life… Andy Reid.
