Chrissy Teigen issued a witty apology in regards to her hard-to-control twin-slit dress and accidental wardrobe malfunction at the 2016 American Music Awards. But 'sorry' wasn’t enough for one fan, who tweeted a suggestion at Chrissy during a Thanksgiving-themed Twitter Q&A on Tuesday, to which the model responded with the Chrissy Teigenest of clapbacks.
“@chrissyteigen could’ve just wore [sic] pants,” a user named Alivia wrote. But Chrissy clapped back with a complaint of her own in video form. “Well, Alivia, hindsight is 20/20,” she said. “Just like your mom when she named you with an ‘A’ instead of an ‘O.’”
The fan wasn't quick to taking offense to Chrissy’s joke, she tweeted back “Getting Roasted by Chrissy. One more thing checked off the bucket list! @chrissyteigen THANK U.”
Fan jibes didn’t end there, though. “What happened to being a lady?” a commenter named Sean Lad asked, Teigen responded jokingly, “I am pretty sure you could clearly see I’m a lady.”
Lad ran with it, writing, “No, you’re a woman, not a lady. A lady doesn’t speak like you do or dress that way.” Chrissy served him back with sarcasm. “Oh Sean, I wake up every day just wanting to please you,” she declared in another clip. “I’m so sorry I disappointed you. I don’t know what I can say but, wow, I apologize. I didn’t mean it to happen. But sorry, Sean. Sorry.”
Chrissy wasn't alone in her defense though, husband John Legend chimed in on the clothing gaffe. “Honestly, we were worried there might be that moment, so we checked it,” he told Extra on Tuesday. “We were watching her walk. I was like, ‘It looks good. Looks like all is well.’ But obviously, if a photographer is resourceful enough, they can find that one moment. … The photographer had to get the exact, perfect angle. I love the dress and I thought it was great.”
Chrissy recieved even more praise for the dress from the dress’s designer, Yousef Akbar. “I had no idea she was due to wear it,” he told the Daily Mail of Chrissy’s AMAs ensemble. “I was delighted. Chrissy was the person I envisaged wearing such a dress! … Someone with her personality and her confidence is perfect for [it]. … To me, Chrissy wore the creation perfectly.”
