Teigen was formerly a supermodel who has recently built an impressive lifestyle empire around a curated cooking blog and eventually a cookbook. Much of what drew fans to Teigen’s brand was her relatable and approachable communication style.

The star is not afraid to poke fun at herself and comes across as confident but also fun-loving and kind. It’s a rare mix to find in a celebrity, and it has definitely resonated with people. 

With nearly 30 million followers on Instagram and around 13 million followers on Twitter, Teigen has definitely leveraged that popularity into a meaningful platform. She uses these avenues to share her views on everything from pop culture to family life to current events.

While she does also promote her growing product line — including cookware exclusively available at Target — Teigen definitely shares a lot about her own life to connect with fans beyond marketing.

Teigen married famed singer John Legend in 2013. The pair first had a courthouse ceremony in New York to make things official before jetting off to a lavish ceremony in Italy.

During the big day, Teigen stunned in not one, not two, but three different outfits. The ceremony featured a strapless ivory gown. For the reception, she donned a second dress. By the end of the night, she was turning heads in a crimson mermaid dress. 

The event was a star-studded affair that included guests like Kanye West, Brooklyn Decker, and Stevie Wonder. The pair have remained “couple goals” ever since, having an adorably flirtatious public banter that leaves fans gushing over their marriage. They also have two gorgeous children named Luna and Miles, and the kids make frequent appearances in Teigen’s posts as well. 

Teigen bought more wedding dresses than she wore

Teigen may have had three different outfits on her wedding day, but it turns out that she bought even more than that.

A recent Twitter thread revealed just how the star ended up with so many dresses. A fan commented that she had once seen Teigen in Barney’s where Teigen bought a handbag just so she could use the restroom. The comments filled up with fans shocked and delighted by this detail. 

Then, Teigen’s friend sent her a DM with this comment: “Sort of like that time you bought like 5 wedding dresses you knew you would never actually wear because you felt guilty about ‘just trying on dresses’ which is precisely the point of TRYING ON wedding dresses I love you.” Teigen shared the message to her stories with the note “THOSE WENT TO GREAT HOMES.” 

Whether Teigen and her friend were being literal about her experience or not, the incident certainly fits with Teigen’s public persona as being a little awkward and unafraid to make fun of herself. This is just one more way she comes across as fun-loving and approachable — even as she recognizes the very wealth that would normally make her less relatable. It’s just one more reason that fans love following this hilarious star.
