AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen was among the honorees at Glamour's 2018 Women of the Year Awards which took place at Spring Studios in New York City on Monday, November 12. Her husband John Legend was also in attendance to present her with The Influencer Award, and he had a few things to say about the cookbook author before giving her the trophy.
Explaining all the reason why people couldn't help but adore Chrissy, John revealed that people cheered on his model wife more than him whenever he held a concert. "The number one comment I get from people who used to be my fans is how much they love Chrissy," he joked. "She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts. They love her!"
Talking about her impact to the world, John credited social media for allowing the "Lip Sync Battle" co-host to show who she really is, because that would be impossible if she "were filtered by publicists and handlers." He also noted that Chrissy's biggest impact "may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference. Being who you are, unapologetically, you can make a difference."
The "All of Me" hitmaker got teary eyed towards the end of his lengthy speech, telling his wife, "Well, I'm here to say that you belong here. I think it has become very clear to Glamour magazine and to many millions of people around the world that you are more than worthy of this honor tonight."
Chrissy then took the stage to receive her award, admitting that she was blown away by her singer husband's emotional speech "John didn't even cry when I was giving birth," she jokingly told the crowd, calling him "the most incredible husband on the planet."
Prior to accepting the award, the supermodel and the Ohio native showed off their affection to each other on the red carpet. Other stars such as Ashley Graham and Amber Heard also hit the red carpet in their best dresses. Let's take a look at what the powerful women wore to the annual celebration.
While John looked dapper in his black suit, Chrissy basically omitted angelic aura in a white off-the-shoulder gown by Solace London.
Amber Heard wore a strapless gown that featured beadwork in floral patterns on her bodice that went to her thighs.
Picking up her Visionary Award that night, Janelle Monae wowed in a tulle halter-neck dress which she paired with a chic black jacket.
After she hilariously failed at tapping her boobs, Ashley Graham arrived at the even in a strapless creme bandeau top with a long train hanging off the right side.
Karlie Kloss also wore an off-the-shoulder dress by Brandon Maxwell which she paired with a pair of gold pumps.
Alicia Silverstone opted for an all-black look with a sparkly long-sleeved top and wide trousers.
Padma Lakshmi turned heads in a black dress which featured thigh-high slit and spaghetti string straps.
