Brooklyn Decker & Christine Teigen spend 9/11 with troops in the middle east

Posted by andre with 1 Comment

Actress Brooklyn Decker and TV personality Christine “Chrissy” Teigen, both models, wrapped up their first ever USO tour this past week. The two ladies spent time with troops in the Middle East on 9/11 to personally thank our servicemen and women while out on tour. The entertainment duo focused on lifting the spirits of the troops and bringing laughter and smiles to the many faces there.

The ladies visited hundreds of troops while touring overseas. They took time to autograph magazines and DVD covers. Decker and Teigen also posed for photos, took part in the daily activities on base and extended America’s thanks to our troops – all with huge, goofy grins.

Decker and Teigen both made their major debuts in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues in 2006 and 2010, respectively. Decker can be seen in her most recent role in Peter Berg’s summer movie “Battleship,” a fiction naval war film. Other big screen credits for Decker include “Just Go With It” with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston, and the 2012 release of “What to Expect When You are Expecting.” The Hollywood star expressed her anticipation of her first USO tour.

“I’m so honored to take part in my first USO tour and give thanks to the men and women currently serving their time in the Middle East,” said Brooklyn Decker.

In addition to her modeling in fashion and sports magazines, Teigen plays guest host and correspondent roles on E! Entertainment and “EXTRA.” Last month, Nine West announced its third annual Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) and named Teigen as one of eight models to be photographed by USO tour veteran and industry-respected photographer Nigel Barker as part of the fundraising campaign. Despite her busy onscreen schedule, leading up to the tour, Teigen expressed her excitement in meeting our troops overseas.

“I know this experience will be unforgettable, and I can’t wait to let our troops know how much their sacrifice is appreciated.”

“I actually reached out to the USO myself!” she said. “I’ve been wanting to do a tour for years. While shooting ‘Battleship,’ I became quite close with Col. Greg Gadson, who is very involved in the USO. I basically pressured him to help me out!”

“We tried to be extra goofy and fun just because well, let’s face it, Brooklyn and I have no singing or dancing talents to bring to these people!” Teigen said. “We had to do something!”

“I’ve always had a soft spot for the military,” Decker said. “It might be because of my North Carolina upbringing where a lot of people choose that path, but I knew the USO was an integral part in supporting the military and making sure our troops are well taken care of while they serve our country. I feel that if I’m not serving, I should help to support our troops as much as possible.”

“I’m always taken aback by how young our troops are, how committed they are and the high moral standard that they are held to,” Decker said. “It’s just impressive all around. I don’t know many 20-somethings that can be that selfless.”

“It was inspiring to see firsthand the things our troops risk and leave behind to be there,” Teigen said. “I feel like this is just the beginning. When I think of tour, I think of multiple stops. This is just the first stop!”

Battleship – Photocall in London, England

Posted by andre with No Comments

The gang from Battleship dressed up today for a photocall on behalf of their Summer blockbuster at London’s Corinthia Hotel. Brooklyn Decker donned a Stella McCartney dress that is a celeb favorite — Gwyneth Paltrow wore it to an event in China, while Sienna Miller donned it on a recent British Vogue cover. Rihanna was decked out in a silky dress and Taylor Kitsch looked hot in a suit.

The long promotional road is just starting for the trio ahead of the film’s release on May 18. Brooklyn, though, has already been making the rounds for nearly a week. She and Taylor were in Hamburg, Germany, a few days ago, along with director Peter Berg. Brooklyn was also in LA for WonderCon, and attended a panel with the movie’s other leading man Alexander Skarsgard. Between all the work, Brooklyn’s found time to shop. She recently tweeted a photo of her idea of heaven, the candy selection at Harrods!

Brooklyn Decker was basking in the sunshine on the rooftop of The Corinthia Hotel in London this afternoon for the photocall for her latest movie ‘Battleship’.

The blonde beauty donned a piece from the Stella McCartney Spring 2012 collection.

This is surprising considering so many have tried and failed; in most cases miserably.

On Brooklyn the verdict is not bad.

I don’t love the dress because I still can’t get past the black-and-white embroidery plus the mesh panels, but with her hair styled like the runway model and for keeping the look clean, she fairs better than the rest.

My only criticism is the shoes.

They should’ve been simpler. I’m not a fan of the criss-cross detail against the prints and all that detail on the dress.

Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker are all smiles at a photo call for their new movie, Battleship, held at the Corinthia Hotel on Wednesday (March 28) in London, England.

The ladies, both 24, were joined by co-star Taylor Kitsch and the film’s director, Peter Berg.

Brooklyn got a little time to herself yesterday and shared a funny photo of herself at Harrods with a few lollipops!

FYI: Brooklyn is wearing Stella McCartney.
