Chrissy Teigen is sorry, not sorry for 'wardrobe malfunction' on AMAs red carpet

Chrissy Teigen has given a shout out to her laser hair removalists for the stellar job they did on getting her ready for the pelvic bone-baring dress she wore for the American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The model, Lip Sync Battle host and Cravings cookbook author was responding to accusations she suffered a "wardrobe malfunction" when her black Yousef Akbar split gown, held together by safety pins (a modern take on Elizabeth Hurley's Versace dress from 1994), "floated" too far to the left as she posed on the red carpet with husband, John Legend.

Teigen, famed for her smackdowns particularly of US president-elect Donald Trump, took to social to say sorry, not sorry for the distress her dress and the alleged "malfunction" has caused.

"Apologies to anyone harmed mentally or physically by my hooha," she said, before tagging her Los Angeles-based, celebrity hair specialists, SEV Laser Aesthetics.

She later explained: "I was walking. It floated. It's over. I can't take it back. Here is a formal apology. What else would you like?" 

Teigen also had the perfect response to criticism she was not "a lady" because she decided to forgo underwear.

She also took the time to offer others tips on how to achieve the same look.

Pelvic bone baring dresses are the new cleavage, with waist-high splits making a big splash on the red carpet this year, particularly seen on Bella Hadid in a risque, red Alexandre Vauthier silk wrap gown at Cannes and Italian models Giulia Salemi and Dayane Mello who rocked the mon pubis look at the Venice Film Festival.

Teigen can go uncensored on social media, unlike the AMAs, where her comments about the recent US election were silenced out when it went out on live television.

Introducing her husband and his new song, Love Me Now, on stage at the Microsoft Theatre, Los Angeles, she said: "This next performer is a brilliant musician and a wonderful father, who makes a pretty damn good breakfast sandwich... and he has been known to write love songs about me. What can I say? I'm very inspiring.

​"But his songs are bigger than either of us and on the heels of what's been a really interesting f---ed up, f---ing election for all of us, I think we could all use a little love tonight."

Teigen stars in the video of Legend's new song along with their seven-month-old daughter and new celebrity It baby, Luna.
