Chrissy Teigen & John Legend cover Martha Stewart’s Weddings: stunning?

John Legend

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend cover the Spring issue of Martha Stewart’s Weddings. They follow in the immediate footsteps of other celebrity couples who have also preserved their ceremonies in glossy print with varying results. Most recently, Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish went ranch style in a “look at us!” way while Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds played coy by only showing us photos of their food. Chrissy and John have hit a happy medium and probably chose to celebrate with Martha because Chrissy is into lifestyle blogging. Actually she’s into food blogging, but she’s a lifestyle tweeter. She’s funny. I dig her.

The cover, which Chrissy posted on Instagram with a “[C]overed my butt this time around,” is lovely and appropriate. The caption is at odds with the photo but refers to the recent SI: Swim cover, so it works. The couple was married in Lake Como, and Chrissy wore a strapless, open-backed Vera Wang ball gown. She had two other Vera Wang dresses (both mermaid cut) that she wore throughout the evening. I like the “main” dress the best. All of that tulle is very fairy-tale princess-y, but the backless detail gives the gown a hint of danger.

I do remain skeptical of Chrissy and John’s choice to not have a wedding cake because cake is where it’s at. Chrissy loves food though, so I’m sure there were lots of other yummy dishes on hand. It’s a good thing she had a few spare dresses since she decided to roll around on the ground right after the wedding ceremony. Look at John’s face! He’s so used to her weirdness.

    Love her. Love the photos. Love it all!

    • SonjaMarmeladova says:

      I find her soo annoying. But she is pretty, though.
      Could someone please explain me why on Earth does someone have 3 wedding dresses.

      • Suzy from Ontario says:

        SonjaMarmeladova I completely agree! It’s so excessive and reeks of narcissism imo. Suddenly one expensive, amazing dress isn’t enough. Everything has to be over the top excess. Where does it stop? Soon it’ll be 5 dresses, 2 cakes and 3 receptions because they can’t decide so why not have them all! Then you see young regular (non-celebrity) people start to think that is the way it should be! Suddenly *they* need 3 wedding dresses and a red carpet entrance to their weddings. Weddings are expensive enough!

        Even though I know these people can afford it, it just seems wrong to me. I know people will say it’s their wedding and their money blahblah but imo it just comes across as so spoiled to me…more, more, more… nothing is ever good enough and I have to have it all. I think there’s too much of that in society already. Maybe if people focused more on the person they were marrying and the thrill of THAT instead of all the excess of the wedding, marriages would last longer. I know I sound like an old crab, but it just rubs me the wrong way, One beautiful gown is special, three is excessive and unnecessary imo.

      • littlestar says:

        I think wearing more than one dress to get married in is silly as well. It’s like the dress you get married in somehow loses its specialness, because there’s 2 other dresses competing for attention as well.

        And no cake?! Sacrilege! The wedding cake was one of the most important things about my wedding – it was simple in design, but it tasted heavenly!

      • dizzylucy says:

        I agree – I could see if you were wearing your grandmother’s old delicate dress for the ceremony and want something else to dance in later, but this multiple gowns for the sake of multiple gowns thing is just ridiculous and excessive.

      • get it together says:

        while i think most celebrity weddings are excessive, i’m not necessarily against multiple dress. 3 is a bit much, i agree, but where to draw the line if one has the funds? i got married over the summer and i had 2 gowns from vera wang. one ethereal “princessy” one in white for the ceremony, and one “edgier” pink one for the reception. my choice to have 2 dresses wasn’t because celebs do that so i felt like that was “normal.” i just couldn’t decide between the 2 dresses! my husband and i paid for our own wedding since my parents can’t afford it, but they wanted to pitch in, in some way. i suggested they buy me my pink reception dress, and my mom actually cried out of happiness for being able to contribute to my wedding in a special way while not having to pay for the whole shabang.

    • MIchelle says:

      This is to Get it Together- your story made me smile. Congrats for your special day! :)

      And I like JL and CT, congrats to them too! That is all.

  2. A says:

    I like his little bowtie… It’s a little different from the norm right?

  3. nenou says:

    what the hell is she doing on the ground which such a dress ????? i would have been to scared to mess my wedding dress.

  4. Tanguerita says:

    the cover shot is terrible – they both were photoshopped into oblivion – look at John’s face! As a photographer myself I often wonder why celebrities’ private photoshoots often look so budget. I mean, some of these shots wouldn’t make it through the grid of any self-respecting wedding photographer. But i like them as a couple, so congrats!

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    He’s looking very handsome and elegant. I know nothing about her, so this is my first impression. She seems to really like attention.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    “There’s no cake?” Said in Liz Lemon demon voice.

  7. j.eyre says:

    I just found out the Heiress is not a big fan of cake so I have to become open-minded to alternative confectionary lifestyles.

    • blue marie says:

      All cake, or just wedding cake? I’m a big fan (and this probably makes me lame) of the cupcakes made to look like a cake. Cupcakes are my weakness.

      • j.eyre says:

        Her aversion seems to be all cake. She’s 6 and has not even tried wedding cake yet. I bought a Swedish Princess Cake to celebrate Ragnörak on Saturday and she opted for the Weight Watchers Dulce de Leche Ice Cream bars instead – and this was AFTER turning down cupcakes from her friend’s birthday.

        However, there is another side to this coin – somebody has to eat the cake she doesn’t…

      • AmandaPanda says:

        I’m not into cake either, and we didn’t have one at my wedding. We did have cheese. And chocolate. And espresso martinis. But no cake – baked goods are not my bag (not keen on muffins or pastries either).

      • velvet says:


        I am a baker. I once had a customer come in and order a “princess cake”. We made her a beautiful Swedish Prinsesstårta cake. We made everything from scratch even the marzipan. She came in to pick it up. She looked at our lovely cake and asked “Where is Barbie?”.

        She wanted one of those supermarket cakes, with the plastic doll head and torso that you pipe ruffles around to make a skirt. My co worker had never even heard of such a thing.

        Needless to say we ate a lot of Prinsesstårta cake that week in the shop.

  8. Barrett says:

    He’s adorable. She doesn’t draw me in. Something off w her.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah. Everyone seems to find her charming. She seems like that girl who has to be the center of attention at every moment. I guess she wasn’t getting enough attention at her own wedding, so she had to roll around on the floor like a two year old. I don’t find that cute at all.

      • Suze says:


        I find these photos ridiculous. Like you don’t get enough attention at your own wedding so you amp it up to the ridiculous level? Not only did she choose a dress with cutouts, she decided to drop to the floor, roll around and stick out her leg. That is some sophistication there.

      • littlestar says:

        That’s the PERFECT way to describe her: “She seems like that girl who has to be the center of attention at every moment”.

      • FLORC says:

        Yea. Just can’t be a fan of her.

        I even tried to follow her cooking tips after it was posted on this site. The article stated her as a supermodel that eats! Seems like if it isn’t put in a blender or cooked to mush it isn’t eaten more than once or just cooked for show purposes.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Why do you assume that she was on the ground for attention, and not because she was being silly and playing with her new husband? Some people are just fun loving goofy people…it isn’t always about an audience!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Right, because no one would ever notice that the bride was wallowing around on the floor with her legs in the air. I’m sure attention had nothing to do with it.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I am not saying that no one would notice the bride on the ground…but the people there would probably be her friends and family! It isn’t like she is on the red carpet, trying to steal attention from other celebs in front of people she doesn’t know. She is the BRIDE, all the attention is on her already anyway from people that already know and love her. Maybe she felt comfortable enough to do whatever non-traditional thing she wanted to do that day. Maybe she was just being silly when it came time for the garter (which is s silly tradition in itself) ? Is it REALLY that big of a sin to lay on the ground?

        To take something so incredibly harmless and get all nasty about it is just so negative. I don’t get it.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Apparently you think it’s fine for a grown woman to roll around on the ground at her wedding. You find it goofy and charming and cute. “Non-traditional.” I don’t, and from the looks on their faces, neither do the people watching her, including her husband. Do they looked charmed to you? They each, in their own way, look like wtf? Because what she doing is undignified and stupid and inappropriate. If it makes me nasty to be aware of that, then call me all the names you want.

    • AG-UK says:

      Me either and I think she looks odd to me. Her face is an odd shape or something. I live in the UK and she is nowhere on the radar here.

  9. TG says:

    They se happy together and she is cute but that dress with the cutouts in the front is horrible IMO. Tacky and reminds me of something Kim K would wear, at least the top portion.

  10. MollyB says:

    I can’t believe CB doesn’t cover Chrissy dumb as shit behavior more often. Like her HILARIOUS ‘joke’ video of John choking her out. Because domestic violence is LOLOLOLOL.

    Or her proud slut shaming of others while posting pictures of her giving “vagina raspberries” to other models.

    She’s just the worst.

  11. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I can’t believe they didn’t have cake – not fair to the kids and kids at heart – to not have a cake is Inconceivable.

  12. Delta Juliet says:

    Am I the only one who finds her completely unattractive?

  13. AG says:

    Beautiful dresses and lovely pics. Best of luck to them.

  14. Dani says:

    Something about her face throws me off? But I love all 3 dresses.

  15. Nikkie says:

    I find her annoying usually but love these pictures of them together. Congrats to them

  16. anne_000 says:

    If I remember correctly, they had a crepe cake.

  17. nk868 says:

    i remember reading about the crepe cake but it looks like they had a carrot one as well, @bedhead :

    i love her – i find her really refreshing and adorable!

  18. rep says:

    I dont like her, and I couldnt figure out why. Thanks for helping me celebitches, its the look at me, look at me personality.

  19. Harlyn says:

    Regardless of opinions on Kate, I thought her photos were quite lovely and with fun family and candid shots…not very “look at me.” These shots however look very staged for the magazine spread and not at all what I would call middle ground between Kate and Blake. But as with everything in celeb gossip, judgment has very little to do with actual behavior and more with how much you like the person.

  20. lady_luck says:

    Ugh. Second last picture is so trashy. I do not find this woman attractive at all, sorry.

  21. GIRLFACE says:

    I like her but sometimes she is pretty out there. He is adorable. I think they’re cute together.

  22. mebee says:

    I just don’t see her as such a beauty…?? She seems average at best in the face!
