For as much as those designer gowns cost, you’d think they’d reinforce the zippers on those things.
Chrissy Teigen found out the hard way that zipper strength isn’t always a top priority just moments before last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner.
The swimsuit model (and fiancée of John Legend) tweeted a sexy shot on Instagram of her black beaded dress peeling apart with the caption “Late for #whcd. Broke zipper. Any tailors in DC wanna sew me in?”
Apparently she had no takers, because she then Tweeted “Ay yi yi. Backup dress,” followed shortly by “Yes this also happened last year buttheads.” Next year, she may want to keep a tailor on retainer!
But luckily, supermodels don’t have to scramble for safety pins or sit the evening out like the rest of us — Teigen’s backup gown was just as stunning as her first choice, and best of all (in her words): “This one zipped.”
