Being Mrs. John Legend sounds like quite the life — and so does simply being Chrissy Teigen. Teigen's marriage to one of the most thoughtful crooners on the airwaves today notwithstanding, the model has quite the successful career of her own, including posing for high-profile companies such as Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated. And despite her fit physique, she also knows a little something about being publicly disrespected for what others deem flaws. When the model was asked by Vegas Magazine about social media users who called her overweight, she simply stated, "I learned a long time ago not to Google myself". Even more refreshing to hear is how much Teigen enjoys cooking and eating her creations.
The model may be the girl next door when it comes to her hobbies and attitude about Hollywood, but Teigen knows how to rock a statement red carpet look like no one else. And for the 2014 ESPY's, she did just that, setting her fans and critics atwitter with an extraordinarily low-cut, cleavage-baring jumpsuit. Of course, the look wouldn't be complete without a side-swept, wavy do and her signature touch of gold in the form of pointy toe pumps. Critics and naysayers be damned — shame on you, Forever 21, for firing her that one time — because this is one down-to-earth model who happens to look absolutely stunning. If you admire her chic ensemble, read on for four items you'll need to channel the model's signature sizzle.
1. CREAM OR WHITE JUMPSUIT
The plunging neckline on Teigen's jumpsuit is fairly daring, but if you prefer a more conservative look, try a version with an illusion neckline like BCBG's Max Azria Waylen Jumpsuit.
2. GOLD POINTY-TOE HEELS
Teigen glamorized her red carpet look by adding gold pointy toe pumps which barely peek out from underneath her jumpsuit. These Classique-20 Stiletto Heel Pointed Toe Pump in Gold Metallic offer the same gilded, Old Hollywood-inspired look.
3. OMBRE HAIR
For a wash of fresh color like Teigen's, try using henna cream, which conditions and deposits color onto hair. Surya's Henna Cream is a favorite for creating enviably smooth, color-treated locks.
4. NUDE MANICURE
Chrissy Teigen keeps all eyes on her ensemble by leaving her hair, makeup and nails neutral. Achieve a similarly polished look with Jin Soon's Nail Laquer in Pink Beige or Sheer Nude. The manicurist is known for her lengthy, luxurious treatments, and her polish will give you spa-like effects in the comfort of your own home.
