Ladies We Love: Chrissy Teigen

chrissy teigen

My love and appreciation for Chrissy Teigen is way past the “girl crush” stage. This model is totally the girl next door (she was discovered while working in a surf shop) and is more down-to-earth than most people in her position would be. She’s a kick-ass #girlboss, and I want to be best friends with her.

She’s hilarious

I don’t know what to say to explain this lady’s humor… Honestly. She’s crude, honest, and intelligent—the exact ingredients for a Twitter feed that makes you laugh until you cry. You know she’s the friend who has a stockpile of weird photos/memes, ready to fire at all times. I have to let these tweets speak for themselves…

Chrissy Teigen waiting for her Postmates delivery is all of us:

Teigen isn’t afraid to voice her opinion

Being in the public eye means everyone has an opinion on everything you do. For some, the fear of offending someone or receiving negative backlash from the opposition causes them to keep mum. This is not the case with Mrs. Legend.

She, like many other celebrities in 2017, are using their platform and voice to speak out about political injustices that are plaguing our country. She has been trolling Donald Trump on Twitter since his political campaign materialized, and it is the epitome of what everyone else is thinking.

In an interview, Teigen explained that this hatred is nothing new, “I’ve actually been a big Donald Trump hater (for a long time). I’ve been trolling him for about 5 to 7 years now. I’ve been doing this forever, and I take pride in that.”

I suppose the best part of this all is that Trump seriously ended up blocking her on Twitter. Undoubtedly a crowning moment for Teigen.

She’s unapologetically herself

Teigen is praised for her realness, she isn’t afraid to not be “perfect.” I rarely pay attention to or even care about celebrities and what they’re doing, but I think this is what makes Teigen an exception for me. I actually follow her posts on social media because she is unapologetically human and doesn’t fold in to the pressures of fame and superficiality.

 Most days, my mood is “Chrissy Teigen at the Oscars.”

Last year, the celeb released a cookbook titled “Cravings.” If you haven’t tried it or at least gawked over the comfort food recipes in the aisle at Target, you’re cheating yourself. Seriously. The best part about the cookbook is that the recipes are relatively easy to make, a great thing if you’re a kitchen novice like myself. Thankfully, a second cookbook is in the works as we speak.

Ok, I’m done. Chrissy, keep doing you, girl. You’re killing it.
