It was Chrissy Teigen's idea to meet at a Los Angles DIY cake-decorating studio, so she could practice making a confection for her daughter Luna's first birthday two weeks away in mid-April. It is easily the least glamorous spot on Melrose Avenue—half elementary school cafeteria and half art-class studio, with loud children covered in sticky frosting—and Teigen arrives in Le Silla thigh-high suede boots (opens in new tab), Re/Done denim cutoffs (opens in new tab), and a white, off-the-shoulder Esteban Cortazar blouse (opens in new tab) that trails an extra yard of fabric behind her. It looks like she has just come from a photo shoot, but, "No, it's all for you, baby," she says. "If it weren't for this interview, I'd be home, naked, watching TV."
This is the Teigen that America loves: the unfiltered 31-year-old model, entertainer, cookbook author, and wife of Grammy-winning musician John Legend who ugly-cries on live television, eats fried chicken and Fun Dip on Snapchat (opens in new tab), shows off her stretch marks on Instagram (opens in new tab), and cops to armpit liposuction at press events (opens in new tab).
She also tweets exactly what she's thinking to her 5 million-plus followers, which often means sharing the parts of herself most celebrities prefer to keep out of the press. Recently, she revealed that she had postpartum depression (opens in new tab) (PPD) after Luna was born and that she was also diagnosed with anxiety, which she treats with an antidepressant.
