Chrissy Teigen bought five extra wedding dresses for her 2013 nuptials to John Legend because she felt guilty trying on gowns and not buying them.
The model-turned-cookbook author shared the news on social media on Tuesday, after one follower recalled witnessing Chrissy once buy a designer handbag just so she could use the shop’s toilet.
“One time I saw you at barneys and you bought a Celine bag so you wouldn’t feel guilty about asking to use the bathroom. I knew I loved you before but that solidified it,” the fan wrote.
“Wowowowow (sic) anyone that knows me knows this is very true all too often,” the TV personality responded.
A friend then sent a direct message to Chrissy detailing her pricey splurge, and the mother-of-two posted a screengrab of the exchange on her Instagram Stories for her fans to see.
The message read: “Sort of like that time you bought like 5 wedding dresses you knew you would never actually wear because you felt guilty about ‘just trying on dresses’ which is precisely the point of TRYING ON wedding dresses I love you (sic)”.
In the accompanying caption, Chrissy insisted the dresses were donated, by writing: “THOSE WENT TO GREAT HOMES.”
Chrissy ended up choosing three Vera Wang designs for the couple’s wedding in Italy, with her wearing different styles for the ceremony, dinner, and reception party.
At the time, she told E! News she simply couldn’t decide on just one dress for her big day: “Every time I went in (to Vera Wang) for a fitting, I couldn’t stop getting one… It’s just too pretty.”
