7 Times 2015 Billboard Music Awards Host Chrissy Teigen Was A Body Positive Style Icon
I can't wait to watch Chrissy Teigen host the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday. In addition to being a Sports Illustrated supermodel, foodie, and writer, Teigen has always proved herself to be a true body positive style icon wherever she is, whether it's in the kitchen whipping up recipes for her cookbook or on the red carpet strutting her stuff in front of the camera.
Honestly, whenever I hear Chrissy is going to be attending an event, I just know she'll arrive looking utterly gorgeous. Of course, Teigen never takes her image seriously and always pokes fun on Instagram explaining how much effort it takes to complete her red carpet look, and I think that's exactly what makes her even more gorgeous (and lovable) than she already is.
Teigen may always look picture perfect, but she's the first to admit that it takes a village to get her there. She's previously told New York Magazine, "Even on television I am full of fake hair and covered in body makeup head-to-toe. Those full lashes have been applied meticulously one by one, my teeth have spent more hours in a dentist chair than I ever imagined. We have a team of people whose sole job is to make people appear close-to-perfect."
Even though she may seem "flawless" to us on the red carpet, we know deep down that Chrissy is truly beautiful because of the glow and confidence she exudes. This is solely why Chrissy is and will always be an inspiring body positive role model.
As an ode to the 2015 BBMA host, here are 7 times Chrissy was a body positive style icon:
1. When she arrived at the White House Correspondents Dinner like this:
She even admits to Sports Illustrated, "Every White House Correspondents' Dinner for the past three years I have broken my dress and can't even zip it, so we have to leave -- that's why I've missed every carpet appearance. One time we had to go into Virginia to find me a new dress. Nip slips, everything—I've seen it all. Honestly, I don't really care."
2. When she went back and forth from light and dark hair but didn't care what anyone thought:
"I think it's really fun! Sure, people are going to give you crap. They're going to like it or they're not, but it's just hair."
3. She's never too proud to give credit when credit is due:
4. The time she opted out of spanx to not trick us:
5. When she was practically glowing at the Met Gala:
6. When she wore this daring outfit and still looked AMAZING:
