When news broke yesterday that Chrissy Teigen wouldn’t attend this year’s Met Gala because it was too “risky” for the expectant mother, I was so upset, I nearly revolted and quit the internet in protest. Luckily, Chrissy found a way to get in on the fun from home by posting a red carpet “makeup tutorial” that is so relatable, you’ll feel seen as hell.
The model posted a photo that featured her chilling at home in a casual top and loose, messy bun. She captioned the photo, “this year’s #metgala GLAM was #SUPER important to me as I wanted it to really embody the heavenly bodies theme!!! I think we nailed it!! Swipe for for #creds!!!”
Chrissy went on to write, “First I shampooed my #hair yesterday with #shampoo then I let it sit for 4 minutes while i #shaved the areas I could see on my #body. Next, I used a #towel to dry my hair from roots to ends!! Then, I used a #rubberband to secure my hair into a pony that i was careful not to pull out all the way!” What a coinkidink â€” I did the same thing!
Then, Chrissy described how she pulled together the ensemble: “Lastly, I pulled out pieces around my #ears and #neck ! Full tutorial coming up tomorrow !!!!!!!! Like and subscribe!!!!!”
In a following post, Chrissy copped to feeling just a bit of FOMO â€” and yup, we understand. Rather than share the “details” of her makeup look, Chrissy wrote that, “I’m honestly just very jealous I’m not there. Also I need to drink water.”
Here’s to next year, Chrissy! And don’t worry, you were in fabulous company, because I was also lounging on my couch in sweats.
