Chrissy Teigen was one of the amazing women honored at Glamour‘s annual Women of the Year Awards in New York City on Monday (Nov. 12). Her husband John Legend introduced her, and as expected, the duo defined couple goals.
Legend teared up (and so did we) while delivering his heartfelt speech, where he discussed Teigen’s infectious personality and obvious impact on others: “People love her honesty, her humor, her beauty and style, her passion for food, her sense of adventure and fun, and they love her big, beautiful heart. The heart she wears on her sleeve. She inspires so many people and so many women. I mean, she’s the kind of woman you write songs about.”
“Don’t be afraid to be outspoken. Don’t be afraid of the backlash. Just speak up. ” Glamour Woman of the Year #ChrissyTeigen ‘rises up’ for other women by speaking her truth. –#GlamourWOTY Director: @markLeibowitzpictures Set design: @makeriestudio Production: @csglobalgroup
Teigen was just as emotional during her speech, which she characteristically joked about. “You are our everything, you completely made me a woman. We have grown together, our family has grown together, our careers have grown together. This is so sappy, I’m so sorry, I hate it. I didn’t cry during our wedding. I hate you John, I really do.”
