Leave it to Chrissy Teigen to own the red carpet at an Oscars after-party last night in the best way. A photo that’s going viral on Twitter shows the 33-year-old jokingly pushing husband John Legend aside so he didn’t steal her spotlight.
“Honestly this is a very important carpet and I do not need interference,” Teigen tweeted late Sunday night.
In the photos taken immediately following the “incident,” Legend good-humoredly holds his hands up in a sign of defeat as he steps back to let his wife have her moment. He then stands off to the side, watching Teigen pose for pictures with a look that can only be described as loving and admiring.
Fans are loving the hilarious snap, which has received nearly 76,000 likes so far. Many commented on Legend’s reaction to Teigen’s sass. “He does not look a stranger to that push away hand. lol,” wrote one user, while another described the 40-year-old singer’s look as, “‘She’s crazy and I can’t get enough.'”
And to the person who asked, “How shitfaced are you? On a scale of 1 to 10?” Teigen responded simply, “11.”
The mom of two wasn’t exaggerating, according to her tweets this morning. “Oh my god I feel like absolute shit,” she posted, followed by a dramatic, “I hereby go sober for at least the week. Booze is poison.”
But judging by Teigen’s feed last night, she and Legend enjoyed their evening out sans kids. The Lip Sync Battle host, who pregamed the event by making chicken lettuce cups and watching Bar Rescue, also tweeted a cute clip of her stealing shrimp from Quincy Jones during the party.
