Fashion model Chrissy Teigen was born on November 30, 1985 in Delta, Utah. She was working in a surf shop when being discovered by a photographer. It was since then that she embarked on a modeling career, landing jobs as an IGN Babe in 2004 and a substitute model on "Deal or No Deal" beginning from 2006 to 2007. She afterwards was recruited to appear on the cover of Maxim's calendar.
In the next years, Teigen scored several modeling campaigns for such famous brands, as Gillete, Olay, Nike, Skullcandy, Rock and Republic, Billabong, Beach Bunny Swimwear, and Nine West. Her career breakthrough came in 2010 when she was named Sports Illustrated's "Rookie of the Year" and thus featured on its Swimsuit Issue. The beauty continued appearing on the magazine's forthcoming issues ranging from 2011 to 2014.
