Chrissy Teigen is one of the hottest supermodels out right now! With numerous magazine covers including the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, I think we can all agree that Chrissy also has one of the best bodies. Unfortunately, Chrissy reveals in the behind the scenes video of her Dujour magazine shoot (posted below) that she was actually fired from a job for being too fat! She explains that while at a modeling shoot for Forever 21, ‘I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo. And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, “You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken”. She added, ‘And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you’re the worst.’
Can you imagine going to a photo shoot for one of the biggest clothing companies and they tell you you’re too fat? I would have totally ran off set in tears. Good thing Chrissy didn’t let what Forever 21 said get to her, or else she would have never become the outspoken supermodel that we all know and love. Back in 2012 Chrissy tweeted, ‘So next time you pass a Forever 21, remember the fact that they are a bunch of a******* who fired me mid-makeup for being fat.’
Chrissy also opens up to the magazine about social media, husband John Legend and her must have beauty products.
On social media ruining relationships: Definitely. It’s ruining relationships that are already in the shitter. I’ve never been in a new relationship during the Instagram era, but I could see myself getting jealous. I can’t imagine having to deal with that stuff.
On beauty products she can’t live without: I love SK-II facemasks and under eye masks. They’re soaking wet when you put them on, and then when you take them off they’re dry because you’re skin just absorbs everything. I love Aquaphor. And Benefit for their brow kits. I could go on forever. Oribe shampoo and conditioner is my favorite. If you’re a hairstylist and you don’t have that Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray in your kit, I don’t think anything of you.
On her favorite John Legend song: It’s easier to say what my least favorite John Legend song is, honestly. I remember when he was shooting the video for “Green Light” and I was like, ‘This is horrible. This isn’t gonna go anywhere. I hate this song so much.’ There was nothing about it I liked. And then all of a sudden it’s all over the radio. It was his first big radio hit. And I was like, ‘Listen kid, this song’s going nowhere.’ Clearly I don’t know shit. So now I don’t really speak up as much.
On the celeb that she gets mistaken for: Six or seven years ago there was a lot of Tila Tequila. When I was on MySpace, I actually won one of her modeling contests.
