Fashionista to Watch: Chrissy Teigen

You may know her as John Legend’s girlfriend, but this model is hot in her own right!

Published August 10, 2011

We’ve seen Chrissy Teigen on red carpets looking stunning on the arm of her beau, John Legend, and we love her style! The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model has said when she steps out she prefers to show off one body part at a time, and she sizzles effortlessly in plunging halter dresses, ladylike sheaths, fun prints and blazers layered over minis and shorts. It’s a restrained sexy that’s always topped off with the perfect statement accessories.


This month she took it all off to pose for a sexy Esquire spread in her East Village, New York, apartment that she shares with Legend. In the “In My Place” feature, the 25-year-old Washington native wears a range of comfy loungewear and lingerie, although she says her man doesn’t care for racy undergarments. "I always poke fun at John: 'Why don't you like lingerie? Don't most guys love lingerie?' And he's like, 'I love naked.' Spending $200 on lingerie is nice, but I guess not if your boyfriend wants you naked immediately. I've tried before — there's no point. It comes off too fast."


In addition to modeling hot separates, Chrissy is also designing them. She put her knowledge of swimwear to the test and debuted a bikini collaboration with diNeila Brazil at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami this July. It’s a capsule collection full of bold prints inspired by Thailand and vibrant colors on two pieces that celebrate the female form.
