Crises have a way of bringing people together and showing us that we are more alike than we may think. And Tuesday amid the coronavirus pandemic, we realized that we even share something in common with model Chrissy Teigen. Sure, we may not have her iconic cheekbones or modelesque figure, but we do share the love of head wraps.
The mom of two joined her Grammy award-winning husband John Legend for an Instagram Live concert on Tuesday led by the “Ordinary People” singer, sporting a towel and a gorgeous patterned head wrap.
And while some people may be questioning her wardrobe of choice for going before thousands of fans on social media, we completely understand Teigen’s effortless get up.
Head wraps are our go-to hair accessory for lazy days. They make styling our hair simple. And because many of us will be spending time at home while we wait out the coronavirus outbreak, sheathing our strands in a head wrap makes perfect sense. There really is no need to breakout the blow dryer and curling iron.
Legend put on an Instagram Live concert on Tuesday, and not surprisingly, his wife kept viewers laughing with her antics. Teigen appeared in a hair wrap and a towel — noting that this is “what fans wanted her to wear” after she asked them earlier on Twitter — and drank rosé as 41-year-old Legend sang some of his biggest hits while playing the piano. Legend even took requests, including the Vanderpump Rules theme song from Andy Cohen, as well as The Office theme song from Mindy Kaling.

Meanwhile, 34-year-old Teigen sat on top of the piano and spilled some personal stories about her husband’s hit songs, including the time Legend broke up with her and she sat front row at his concert and cried.
During his concert, Legend announced that he’ll be coming out with new music this year and even previewed one of the songs, though noted that he obviously can’t film any music videos during this time.

Of course, Teigen didn’t miss the opportunity to roast him, joking during his announcement that his number of viewers went down. Legend also joked that there might be a “Corona baby boom” and his music could help people out, though Teigen insisted there was no way the two are having a third child after Luna and their 1-year-old son, Miles.
The couple ended the concert with a plea to be kind to the elderly, for people to not hoard when out shopping and to continue to practice social distancing with other’s safety in mind. Legend closed the concert with his mega hit, “All of Me” — which is famously about Teigen.
