Chrissy Teigen shot a lush spread in Zanzibar for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
Teigen announced her appearance in the mag herself with a photo on Instagram. "So excited to announce my 7th appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition — I had to count that a million times before I believed it," Teigen captioned her photo. She continued, "My @si_swimsuit family, I love you! There is nothing like being a part of this brand and this issue, " before going on to thank her team.
So excited to announce my 7th appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition - I had to count that a million times before I believed it! My @si_swimsuit family, I love you! There is nothing like being a part of this brand and this issue. My shoot was in beautiful Zanzibar and shot by the incomparable @ruvenafanador, who is just as wonderful, kind, serene and lovely as everyone has ever told me. He thinks about every little aspect of a photo, every detail. HMU by @peterbutlerhair and @joannegair I LOVE you and am so lucky you allow me to be in your chairs! @mj_day and @darciebaum and @ja_neyney @hillarydrezner and @karencarpk - you are my family. I am proud to be in the issue but SO proud of all the work you guys put into this every single year. I just love you all. Jesus this is dramatic I know! And to all my fellow @si_swimsuit girls, congrats on a beautiful issue!!! I will see you this week in MIAMI!!!! I can't wait to kiss all your beautiful faces!
She got lots of love from her fans — the photo has gotten over 139,000 likes — but haters of course felt the need to weigh in on her body.
Some wondered if the picture was photoshopped; others asked if her teeny bikini bottom was painted on. Even commenters who tried to help ended up not so subtly shading Teigen: "You are beautiful! But what is up with your bikini bottoms/leg?" and "She is pretty but has a very funny shape."
Hopefully Teigen lets the nice comments sink in as well, like, "you're absolutely stunning and I love how confident you are and just a role model for others."
But we know Teigen is never afraid to defend herself. She posted another gorgeous photo from the spread, with the caption, "Shoutout to everyone dissecting every little part of my bod in the last comment thread, you're all really wonderful, kind, flawless beauties - I can tell from your pages!!"
Kudos to Teigen for staying above the fray and for giving us the hilarious image of her scrolling through her troll's Instafeeds.
