Chrissy Teigen and John Legend at the 2015 Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala

Posted on July 23, 2015

You ponder the phrase “Chrissy Teigen and John Legend at a Leo DiCaprio party in St. Tropez” for more than a second and you start gagging on all the potential chicness it implies. What you don’t do is picture two tourists who had half their luggage stolen.

But that’s the only way we can explain what’s going on here:

Chrissy Teigen is wearing a Lanvin Rateau-inspired dress from the Spring 2015 collection and John Legend is in head-to-toe Giorgio Armani.

We will stipulate that hers is not bad. We don’t like the shape it makes, nor do we love the muddy/dark color scheme for her, but there’s a certain breeziness we can get behind even if we think it looks like a backup plan of an outfit. But the clutch doesn’t go at all and the shoes just don’t have the beachy-chic feel a look like this calls for. Those look like city sandals to us.

But his outfit makes us straight-up cranky. Those mismatched grays are making our eyelids twitch furiously. Can’t say we love the brown shoes either.

You guys, we hope you recover your luggage soon, but just in case you don’t and you somehow forgot it, here’s some very important advice to remember going forward. Stitch it on a throwpillow to remember it:

You’re fucking rich and can buy better outfits than this.

    I guess it’s better than leather and lace in mid-July, but it’s still ugly, and they still look like they just climbed out from behind the bushes after a quickie.

  • MilaXX

    Honestly he’s never been that great at dressing. Chrissy just messed up the accessories.

  • Lily

    I somehow think I would like Chrissy’s top better over a neat solid black cropped pant or short skirt. The long patterned skirt weighs down the entire look.

    He’s just a hot mess, and by hot mess I mean one step away from JC Penney’s clearance catalog.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      totally with you abotu pairing the top with a solid cropped pant or short skirt.
      John, meanwhile, looks smug for someone who is making Armani embarrased by those mismatched grays.

  • Jackie4g

    On my monitor, the greys don’t look bad at all. I’d have liked black shoes. It’s her outfit I find muddy and dreary.

    • Sophie

      It’s her eating dress, and the print is there to camouflage any possible food stains. I completely agree with you on his outfit.

      • Jackie4g

        Makes sense. Chocolate sauce on your papaya, even.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I cold understand this, as I have a few tops in my closet that are my designated ‘eating’ clothes. Of course, mine aren’t by Lanvin….

          • Jackie4g

            And your might even be unwrinkled.

  • Anna

    THAT’S Armani? Huh. Apparently my junior high Social Studies teacher was very stylish because I’m sure he had an outfit like this (including those shoes).

    I’m actually surprised she’s not in a leather bra or in lace, to be honest. That dress is For Runway Models Only. It’s looking very wrinkled and shapeless on her.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Armani needs to stage a fashion intervention with John over this look

  • Wink

    They look like they should be siblings, and that troubles me more than these awful clothes.

  • marlie

    Her outfit is ok, but desperately needs to be ironed. And the grays of his outfit don’t bother me so much, but his look reads as very “suburban dad going to church.” I don’t know WTF is up with his shoes, though.

  • Karen B

    They’re not dressed for a gala, they’re dressed for happy hour at the Hawaiian Hilton.

    • GregoireNYC

      Proper attire for a Mai Tai if you ask me.

      • Karen B

        …but not for Cristal

  • NMMagpie

    I actually think he looks pretty good. After weeks of seeing folks in fabrics that are too dark and too heavy for the season, this is good for resort wear. Better shoes would have helped but overall, not bad.

  • wisenhar

    He would have been better off to forgo the jacket, but I can’t picture him doing so. At least his pants are less tight than they usually are, so there’s that…

  • GregoireNYC

    It looks as though both of these people were folded up and stored in the overhead compartment.

  • merciblahblah

    I don’t love their clothes, but they are both so frigging adorable that I can give them a pass. Actually, if her dress were in some huge, bright, wacky tropical print I would like it a lot better.

  • colleenjanel

    What I love about her look is the understated makeup. She isn’t overly contoured, as is normally the case. This is a woman with God-given contouring. There is no need to fake it with makeup. Let the cheekbones SING without exaggerating them more then they already are.

  • girliecue

    They’re in St. Tropez and NOW she decides to wear non-revealing clothing?!? When you said, “two tourists who had half their
    luggage stolen” I honestly thought you meant John and Chrissy took the luggage and put the tourists’ clothes on.

  • Marceline

    I know we’re supposed to be talking about John and Chrissy but can we take a moment to examine the insane jewelry on that model? I half expect to see Jabba the Hutt holding her leash.

  • spirit52

    I love you, Tom and Lorenzo!

  • melanie0866

    Also, call Housekeeping and ask them to send up an iron.

  • “Head to toe Giorgio Armani” usually implies something more cohesive than this.

  • ashtangajunkie

    That dress must have been rolled into a little ball in the corner of her carryon.

  • Wink

    The Ropers 2015?

  • tryinnottobetoojudgy

    Oof. I just don’t like this dress at all. It’s not pretty or interesting or chic. It just looks like to much fairly unpleasantly-hued gauzy fabric wrapped around her body. It does, however, look comfortable, so there’s that. His outfit is ‘meh.’ But they are cute as buttons, the two of them. 🙂

  • kimmeister

    This is a perfect example of the constant temperature gap between men’s and women’s clothes. She’s in a lightweight sleeveless frock with sandals and he’s in layers on top with pants and closed-toe shoes (likely with socks). Clearly, someone is going to be too hot or too cold.

  • 3boysful

    I’ll be contrary and say I love this dress and she can send it my way. It probably has some linen in it, a fabric which pretty much stays wrinkled. I love that we can’t see half her bod, but it’s funny she chose St Tropez to be modest.

    • smayper

      Come over and sit with me…I love it too. The one on the model looks like it has more greens in it, and I like it more. I also love the necklace!

  • ballerinawithagun

    The Lagenlook is very popular right now. (I don’t wear it myself.) Unless she is pregnant I can’t imagine any model. especially one as gorgeous as Chrissy, wanting to wear such figure concealing and ruining clothing that also look like she’s slept in them.

    • Heather

      I suspect she’s preg. (Ps that is gonna be one SERIOUSLY cute kid.)

  • Little_Olive

    Her dress on the runway seemed to have a beautiful flow, which explained the layering and does not make sense with the linen-y quality of what I see in the photo.

    Also, is she morphing into Khloe Kardashian?

  • alyce1213

    I think just the opposite – he looks fine for a summer night in not mismatched greys, I like his casual loafers, and she looks wrinkled, bedraggled, like she just dragged in from a long day at Plage de Pampelonne.

  • steph

    Seriously when you get the invite that says “Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation GALA in St. Tropez” THIS??? Is what you decide to wear? Go home you both cause this is A Big Disappointment wrapped around a “What the Hell were you thinking??”

  • Snailstsichr

    I wish she had worn the monkey necklace. Compared to many at that event, they are very tasteful.

  • Imasewsure

    How about the matching afghan: “You’re fucking rich and can buy better outfits than this. And you get it all for free anyway you lazy M-f’ers!”

  • Shannyn Marie

    “Baby?” “Yes Chrissy” “Let’s dress like mere mortals for Leo’s thing. I’m gonna go get you some crap from TjMaxx. Bae it’s gonna be so fun!”

  • conniemd

    She just bugs me. When she hosted whichever of the tens of music awards events, I couldn’t help but think, “if you weren’t married to John Legend.”

  • Greenlee Rose

    Those round toed loafers read old man to me.

  • quiltrx

    It looks like neither of them knew that they (or the other) were going to this event.

  • sk8tfan

    I would love to have the breastplate monkey necklace on the model. No idea where I’d wear it but I want it anyway.

  • rubyclaire

    I agree with TLo, his grays are mismatched and he does not impress. I’m not a fan of the shape (and wrinkliness) of her dress but I like how the color scheme goes with her hair, which looks beautiful. So between the two of them, she wins.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I like the idea of her outfit (cotton voile? wrinkles just looking at it) but the brown/gold color combo is sooo dreary for summer. I think he would’ve passed except for the collapsed collar.

  • Monabel

    I like the dress, and the subdued tones flatter her skin tone.
    Also, will someone explain to me when two adjacent shades are mismatched and when they are harmonious? The greys are OK together, it’s the texture difference that doesn’t work for me.

  • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

    Her expression says it all: She’s not feeling this look and it shows.
    On another note – these two need to breed, because their kids would have some awesome cheekbones.
