Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Give AD a Candid Update on Their Home Journey

Around September, when Chrissy Teigen and John Legend began posting Instagram Stories and pictures from a rental home instead of the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom Beverly Hills mansion they’ve owned since 2016, “people really knew it,” Teigen tells AD. What she means is that her 33 million plus Instagram followers noticed immediately that her content—which generally includes cooking tutorials, adorable moments with her children, Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, and comedic commentary—was no longer taking place against the backdrop of her Don Stewart–designed house, with its muted color palette, abundance of textures, and now famous kitchen.

“I feel like people got to know us and our home and I think a lot of people will miss seeing us there,” says Legend. The couple first put the dwelling on the market in August, decamping to a rental and purchasing a new place which they are currently in the process of renovating. Despite previous reports that the house sold quickly, it is actually still on the market for $22.495 million with Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman. Legend confirms that they are willing to negotiate the sale of the furniture in the home, save for a sentimental table and chandelier with his song lyrics on it. And though they are looking forward to a new space after a tumultuous year (in late September, they suffered the death of their unborn son, Jack), they are both sad to see a chapter close with the sale of their memory-filled home.

Below, both the EGOT-winner and the Cravings cookbook author reminisce about their former residence and tell AD how they are designing their future.

Architectural Digest: Why did you decide to move?

John Legend: We thought we were going to have a new addition to our family earlier this year, and so we were thinking we wanted more bedrooms and more living space. And we still expect to expand our family in the near future.

Chrissy Teigen Is in Command

The queen of the Internet is going offline to build a better future for her kids—and the rest of us.

One minute into our Zoom call, Chrissy Teigen flashes me, demonstrating what happens to her body when she overextends herself. She opens her floral-printed Meng silk robe to show me the bruising and healing across her rib cage from her breast-implant removal two weeks ago, covering her nipple with a snicker. “I was raising my arms and moving too much and pulled some stitches,” she explains. “I just don’t know how to slow down sometimes.”

The 34-year-old has a full plate running two companies: Cravings by Chrissy Teigen—her lifestyle brand with a cookware and tabletop line at Target and Macy’s, a blog with videos and recipes, and two best-selling cookbooks—and Suit & Thai Productions, her production company, which has a first-look deal with Hulu (including an upcoming show with the working title Family Style, cohosted with David Chang) and the second season of Quibi series Chrissy’s Court with her mom, Pepper. After helping her mom with her Thai cookbook all quarantine, Teigen will tackle Cravings 3, which she describes as “how I eat now: brighter and healthier.” But, most important, it’s the cookbook she’s having the most fun working on. “While writing the first, I was pregnant, and for the second I was deep in postpartum depression. I’m having a good time, and my confidence has grown. I fully embrace carbs now—like, putting sweet-potato spread on a baguette. A year ago, I would have said you can’t put a starch on bread; now I’m like, who cares? There are no rules.”

As she looks ahead to moving into her recently purchased first office and starting up production again on Family Style, the idea of juggling everything makes her dizzy with excitement and anxiety. “I’m having a hard time being any kind of mogul and running companies because it’s hard for me to work on, or even talk about, two things at once,” she says. “With my anxiety, the worst thing is not giving enough to enough people. It’s like going grocery shopping when you’re full; if I feel like I have too many good things going on, I can’t say yes to another good thing.”

Setting limits and boundaries has been one of the most important lessons for Teigen in quarantine, but remembering how to say no remains one of her biggest struggles.

One place she has successfully set boundaries is on social media. “I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist,” says Teigen, who has over 43 million collective followers across Twitter and Instagram. “I didn’t start therapy until quarantine. I used to avoid it and make fun of the idea of it, and then I found the right person and it changed my world. People think I’m tough, but I’m such an empath, and I take on other people’s pain and sadness as my own. And when I let people down, I’m hyperaware of it. Sometimes I feel like people aren’t going to be as hard on me as I am on myself. So it’s good for me to take a break.”

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend on Who’s Dealing with Quarantine Better


Chrissy Teigen Reacts To British Reality TV Shows | GLAMOUR UK


Glamour UK Spring/Summer 2020

Chrissy is the cover star of the Spring/Summer 2020 issue of Glamour UK. The issue comes with 3 collectable covers. Here’s a short part of her interview, head over to glamour for the whole interiew.

  

In fact, at 34, after spending “decades” criticising her body, Chrissy is no longer interested in berating herself. “I used to weigh myself every morning, afternoon and night. I knew what the scales would say after each meal. I did that for eight years and had this one weight I wanted to be at. That changed with Luna, and really changed with Miles [her son, two], where it took me a year to be comfortable with my new normal number.
“I do look at [my body] in the shower and think, ‘Arghhh, these kids’. But I don’t take the aesthetics so seriously now. It’s very fulfilling not having that pressure of putting on a swimsuit and looking good for a magazine while running around a beach, which I did when I was modelling. I don’t feel like my body is where I’m going to be sh*tty to myself, either. I’m already thinking enough things I am mad at myself about, I can’t add my body into it,” she smiles.

In an almost perfectly timed entrance, her three-legged French Bulldog, Penny, sashays into the room having just been “fat shamed” by the vet. “She’s getting older – wait, this is me talking to myself – you’re getting older and your metabolism is slowing down,” Chrissy laughs.

While stroking her dog, Chrissy talks about her modelling years – she was discovered aged 18 while working in a surf shop in California. “That was my entire career, doing weigh-ins. With model agencies, it was normal to get measured too, and I did it myself mainly, so when you had direct bookings without castings, [the clients] knew what they were getting. There were jobs I would turn up to and they would say my measurements were off and it was the worst feeling to be kicked off the job.”

“You were thrown off a job?” I ask, shocked. “It happened three times,” Chrissy says, before revealing the most hurtful moment. “The client had booked me directly. I had half my make-up done and they asked me to get up and take a few photos, to test the light. But they sent [the pictures] to my agency and the client fired me on the spot. I didn’t do any jobs without first going to a casting meeting for years after that.”

Today, in her beautiful home, with its floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal a vast swimming pool and the LA cityscape below, she is a thousand miles from her days of being a jobbing swimwear model, living in Miami and sleeping in a cramped flat. “It was a two-bedroom apartment and we had five people in it. I was tired of [living like that], so I moved into the living room,” she says, matter of factly.
