Our #WCW this week is Chrissy Teigen! She may have gotten her start in modeling, but she is so much more than just a pretty face.
Chrissy has modeled in campaigns for Olay, Nike, Billabong, UGG Australia, Beach Bunny Swimwear, and more. Her success has carried over to television. She's currently the host of Spike's Lip Sync Battle, and she hosted the Billboard Music Awards in May. She's also appeared on Model Employee, Snack-Off, and The Mindy Project.
Chrissy is a self-proclaimed foodie. She writes and cooks for her own blog - DeLUSHious. In addition to her blog, Chrissy is currently writing her own cook book, which is slated for an early 2016 release. She also shares her cooking expertise on Tyra Banks's new lifestyle show, FABLife.
Chrissy is extremely outspoken. She challenges people who troll her on the internet by calling them out and, more often than not, giving them a taste of her own medicine. However, she is responsible for her own commentary as well. If she misspeaks, she takes responsibility or makes clarifications. We love her ability to share her imperfections, and she frequently shares pictures on social media of her "real" life. She frequently challenges Instagram's policy guidelines as well in terms of what is allowed for male vs. female users.
An active user of social media, Chrissy took to Instagram last month to announce she and husband John Legend are expecting their first child. She also shared the couple had issues conceiving and had to turn to IVF. In typical Chrissy fashion, she has already slammed critics of her pregnancy body. We congratulate the copy on their amazing news!
We love how fearless and bold the hilarious and gorgeous Chrissy is! She has made so much happen for herself, and we can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve next!
