Christine Teigen Makes The ‘Douglas’ Vespa Scooter More Desirable
The 28-year old brunette beauty Christine Teigen turns up the glam in a stunning shooting lensed by Catherine Westergaard. Fans can see the beautiful model posing next to Douglas Vespa scooter, wearing a mix of crop tops, printed blazers, colorful dresses and studded glasses for the ads.
Chrissy Teigen made her debut in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2010 and, alongside Nina Agdal and Lyly Aldridge, appeared on the cover this year. The brunette has appeared on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine and in editorials for Italian Vogue, Esquire, Glamour and Cosmopolitan.
Chrissy, who recently showed off her seductive side in a swimsuit shoot for Esquire, is the new face of the American clothing brand. For some reason, designers thought she’d show her beauty even better posing next to a scooter so they got a Douglas Vespa on set.
Manufactured under license the scooter was practically identical in design to the Piaggio product. Even after the Kingswood, Bristol-based company seized their production line, in 1957, Douglas continued to import Vespa scooters into the UK. Later, they imported and assembled Gilera motorcycles.
