The 29-year-old supermodel posted an image on Instagram after the slit in her dress ripped five inches higher at the New York event on Monday.
“Wardrobe malfunction of the highest caliber. Let’s just say the slit took it upon itself to rip 5 inches higher,” she said.
“Thank you @stuartweitzman for letting me be your date and for always making my feet happy and legs sexy!!! #CFDAawards”
Some commenters clearly thought the wardrobe malfunction was more pronounced than it actually was.
“Do you guys know what a shadow is? Those are not nipples,” Teigen added in a later edit to her post
“I know what my nipples look like. You don’t. Well maybe you do. But those aren’t them.”
Last month she made headlines at the BMA’s when it appeared she tripped a young woman on purpose.
Teigen and Ludacris were on their way to the stage a woman who was trying to get out of the way fell over the model’s red dress.
Teigen later took to Twitter to tell her side of the story. In a series of tweets, the Billboard Music Awards host wrote, “for the record i couldn’t even see the woman falling behind me — she stepped on my dress and i was trying not to eat sh*t.” She continued, “everyone is saying i am some sort of monster for not stopping and giving her CPR or something — she is fine, was not a big deal,” adding humorously, “she should be out of the hospital by christmas.”
