Chrissy Teigen Designs Bridal Bikinis
Model Chrissy Teigen is teaming with Beach Bunny Swimwear to release a collection of wedding bikinis. Our question: Who will wear them?
Wearing a wedding dress on the beach during your destination wedding is a bit daunting: The long, flowy material gets caught in the sand. Not to mention, it's impossible to clean.
Model Chrissy Teigen might have the answer, though we're not sure your grandma will appreciate it. The Sports Illustrated stunner — who's engaged to singer John Legend — is teaming with Beach Bunny Swimwear on a wedding bikini collection.
"I want to wear a bathing suit for my husband that makes me feel sexy," Teigen wrote of the line. "I know other women feel the same way, so I was inspired to design a line."
The bikinis — set to go on sale in September — are feminine and sexy, yet not too revealing. Several promo shots of the line show Teigen and fellow model Kate Upton wearing veils, but it seems like the bikinis are more for after the wedding, not during — especially since some of the pieces have the word "bride" printed on the butt. Not exactly the kind of classy getup you want to capture in your wedding photos.
Or maybe you do... no judging here.
"While the swimwear had to be eye-popping as well as functional for honeymoon travel, it also needed to stand apart from other styles on the beach," she told People recently. "So we added a little humor!"
The pair is reportedly set to marry in Lake Como, Italy, in September — and Teigen will be wearing Vera Wang, not a bikini.
"There's nothing like putting on a Vera. The difference is so amazing. You feel like a princess," she told US Weekly earlier this year.
The pair will then travel to the Maldives for their honeymoon, she added to People.
"I'm excited. I can't wait for the ceremony. [John] and I have been working and traveling so much that we just let our wedding planner do everything," she said in May. "We're not neurotic about it. I just want to finally see all of my friends in one area."
But, will she wear one of her bikinis? Maybe... maybe not.
"I hate the beach," she told People. "I hate the sand."
