The Truth Behind Chrissy Teigen's Hilarious Wardrobe Malfunction

When it comes to celebrities, it's easy to get lost in the glamorous, seemingly perfect lifestyles that they portray — but Chrissy Teigen prefers to keep it real. From documenting her family's journey to Washington D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration to getting candid about her early days as a runway model, fans love Teigen's open-book approach on social media. The model and cookbook author consistently uses social media to interact with fans, share funny moments from her day, and offer insight into her life with John Legend and their family. Of course, Teigen is also no stranger to sharing the devastating moments, solidifying her as a relatable, straightforward, and down-to-earth celebrity. 

As for Teigen's latest all too real moment? On Feb. 1, 2021, Teigen and Legend got dressed up for a date night, though there was a little snag along the way. Although Teigen initially posted a photoset of her looking flawless in a green dress and black blazer, she opened up later about the hilarious wardrobe malfunction that went down behind the scenes.

Chrissy Teigen experienced a very relatable wardrobe malfunction

Although Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's date night photoset looks normal at first glance, not everything was quite as it seemed. With Teigen dressed in a green cocktail dress, black blazer, and Tom Ford heels and Legend rocking a sleek tan jacket, the couple looked picture-perfect. As Teigen would later share on her Instagram story (via Page Six), the zipper to her sparkly dress was broken, leaving a gaping hole on the side of the dress. Fortunately, Teigen was also wearing an oversized blazer, which seamlessly covered up the broken zipper. We're not sure if the zipper broke before or after Teigen posted the photoset — but even if it was after, the model would have had us fooled with her flawless cover-up!

The wardrobe malfunction isn't the first time Teigen has hilariously shared a blooper from her life. On Jan. 21st, 2021, fresh off an exciting few days at the inauguration, Teigen posted about losing a tooth when eating a fruit roll-up. The model's lost tooth and dress malfunction aren't the first gaffes she's shared publicly — and we're sure they won't be the last, either.
