Chrissy Teigen Reveals Sports Illustrated Never Pressured Her To Lose Weight


Chrissy Teigen is singing the praises of the magazine that made her famous, Sports Illustrated.

In the above video with Huffington Post Live, Teigen talks about her positive experience with the magazine and editor MJ Day.

"Your body type isn't important to [Sports Illustrated]. It was way more about having a personality and being able to represent this iconic brand, which was really exciting...I've done six Sports Illustrated shoots, and every single time I get an email from them hoping that I haven't lost weight. It's such a cool thing, no other client has ever said that to me, like, 'Please don't lose weight.'"

The hilarious 29-year-old model and new host of 'FabLife,' alongside Tyra Banks and Joe Zee, has never been considered a high fashion model. Her famous curves and athletic figure have made her unique to the industry and a fan favourite on social media. And she's not afraid to shy away from sharing what she's whipping up in the kitchen with her husband, musician John Legend.

Happy to hear Sports Illustrated is encouraging Chrissy to embrace her curves!
