Why People Can’t Stop Talking About Chrissy Teigen’s Facial Expressions

Chrissy Teigen stunned people around the world with her gorgeous ruby red lace gown at the 88th Academy Awards, according to Hollywood Life. The model, who last week published her new cookbook Cravings, walked the Oscars red carpet on Sunday in a tight gown adorned with delicate beading and flowers.

John Legend, Chrissy Teigen’s husband, guided his pregnant wife down the red carpet. At one point during their journey into the Dolby Theatre, John stopped to fix his wife’s flowing train as the cute couple was posing for photographers. Then the “Made to Love” singer gave Chrissy a kiss on the cheek and put his hand on her belly.

As special as that was, it’s not the only moment that made Chrissy Teigen’s presence at this year’s Oscars remembered by fans. The model brought back her memorable awkward facial expression that made her famous on the internet in 2015. As noted by the New York Daily News, Chrissy’s facial expression at this year’s Oscars was nearly identical to that of the 2015 Golden Globes.

In 2015, Chrissy Teigen was photographed while crying when John Legend won an award for Best Original Song for his song “Glory in Selma.” That awkward face was instantly turned into a meme and has been circulating the internet ever since.

This year’s awkward facial expression from Chrissy Teigen came at the moment when Chris Rock, the host of the 88th Academy Awards ceremony, introduced Stacy Dash on stage as the Academy’s new “Director of Diversity Outreach.”

Chrissy Teigen’s husband John Legend later took to Twitter to explain that his wife was “cringing from the Stacy Dash moment, not Sarah!”

By “Sarah,” Chrissie Teigen’s husband was presumably referring to Sarah Silverman.

It seemed that this year’s Oscars red carpet was crowded by pregnant celebrities. In addition to Chrissy Teigen, Emily Blunt and Hannah Bagshawe took over the Oscars red carpet and stole the spotlight from un-pregnant celebs, according to Us Magazine.

Last week, Chrissy Teigen revealed in her interview with People that she had selected her future baby’s sex. The 30-year-old model chose to conceive a baby girl just because her husband “deserves a little girl.”

After Chrissy Teigen’s interview, in which she says she had chosen the sex of her and Legend’s first child, was published, the internet was divided on whether to criticize the model or to support her decision. Some internet users even took to Twitter to ask Chrissy if she had also chosen her upcoming baby girl’s hair and eye color.

According to Chrissy Teigen’s previous interviews, the model was always open about her fertility problems. Chrissy announced her pregnancy in October, and then in December, she said that it will be a baby girl. And now, over two months later, the model reveals how the baby was conceived.

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) procedures allow parents to choose their baby’s sex. Such expensive and ethically controversial procedures are offered only by top fertility clinics along with their IVF treatments.

But PGS and PGD procedures are so controversial that they are banned in such countries as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and China. Moreover, as reported by the New York Post, Chrissy Teigen’s “embryo-shopping” is a slap in the face for many women.

The article, which criticizes Chrissy Teigen’s decision to choose her future baby’s sex, was contributed to by Emily Zanotti, a communications consultant and digital editor of the American Spectator.

Zanotti argues that “actions have consequences, both immediate and widespread” and that the ethical consequences of gender selection are “obvious.”

“Having children is serious business. Not an unserious celebrity pursuit.”
