This is what couple goals are made of.
Teigen met Legend on the set of his "Stereo" music video in 2007. They dated for four years before getting engaged in 2011 and tied the knot in Italy in 2013. Teigen and Legend always look equally romantic and adorable. It's totally understandable why you and your bae want to dress as this power couple. Why be you when you could be Chrissy Teigen and John Legend?
Below are 13 Chrissy Teigen and John Legend costumes that will help you and your SO/friend/dog/whomever you couple costume with totally win Halloween.
1. "All of Me" Music Video
First of all, John Legend wrote a love ballad about Chrissy Teigen. WHO DOES THAT? I would try and write a love song for my boyfriend and it would be like, "Sing sing ring a ding ling." Hey, it's a first draft! Besides being a beautiful song, the music video is romantic AF.
We all know "All Of Me" as the song that forever made Legend and Teigen the "it" couple. The video shows many, many shower scenes, but mostly Teigen in a sheer, black, one-piece swimsuit.
ASOS has this super cute mesh one-piece on sale now for $36. It has a similar look to the one Teigen is wearing. Pair it with your hair down and slicked back to create the "wet" look. According to E! News, model Ashley Graham swears by Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam to achieve flawless "wet" hair. Pick it up at Target for $12.
As for the John Legend half of the costume — in the video, Legend is wearing a grey V-neck tee shirt like this $12 one from Old Navy. If you were really dedicated, you could bring a toy piano, like this $48 one from Jet, to really make the costume come to life.
2. Chrissy Teigen on Twitter
Teigen has really made a name for herself as a social media guru — specifically Twitter. Her quick wit and questionable methods of retrieving bananas for banana bread keep a hefty following.
For this costume, use a customizable cardboard Twitter frame — available on Etsy for $46. Print your favorite Chrissy Teigen quote and you're good to go. Side note: Make sure your John Legend completely ignores your tweet. Major key.
3. Best looks of Baby Luna
I've kept baby Luna out of most of these costume ideas because it's basically impossible to replicate her cuteness. Most will fall short. However, Luna had one of the best costumes of all time. In 2016, Chrissy Teigen went on Luna-costume-dressing-spree and showcased the most adorable.
The hotdog costume by far the best. If you wish your name could be synonymous with a hot dog like Luna Legend — now it can be. For $17, this hot dog Halloween costume from Amazon can make all your dreams come true.
4. Cookbook Candids
I fully understand the shots from Teigen's cookbook, Cravings, are not candid, but a girl can dream. This cozy couple costume is surprisingly easy to achieve.
For Chrissy, you'll need to rock a messy bun and silky pink pajamas. The PJ set above from Victoria's Secret can be purchased online for $35.
As for John, coziness is equally possible. Pair a V-neck shirt with a blue cardigan for that eating-sandwiches-in-bed look. The cardigan above from Old Navy is available (on sale!) for $22.
5. Anniversary Chic
Rock the chicest Halloween costume of all time with Teigen and Legend's anniversary outfits. I promise this will be the coolest you ever look.
This bodycon dress for $54 from Lulu's will guarantee everything stays in... the right place. The dress is super simple, but paired with a great set of thigh-high boots will give you a perfect Chrissy Teigen look.
These boots are everything. Even if you don't want them for Halloween — just get them! Paired with the high slit in the dress above, this all black ensemble is fire. These boots are available from Lulu's for $69.
As for the John Legend side of the costume, the tan trench makes the look. If you want to spring for a nice tan coat you'll love to wear for years to come, that's great. If you're not looking to break the bank, Overstock sells the jacket above for $51.
6. An Unforgettable Break-Up
One of the best stories about their relationship is the time Legend tried to break-up with Teigen. During an interview with The Guardian, Legend revealed,
I was really stressed and busy. I was just, like: 'I'd just be happier single right now.' And she was like, 'No.'
Classic Chrissy. This will be the easiest costume of all time. All you need are two white tee shirts and a sharpie. One person writes "I'd just be happier single" on their shirt and the other person's shirt will simply say "No." Buy white tee shirts from H&M for $7.99 each and prepare to have a good time explaining the joke to your friends.
7. The Ramen Family
The Teigen-Legend fam loves a good Cup O' Noodles. Teigen has even joked about her and Legend dressing as Ramen seasoning packets for Halloween. If you're looking to become the perfect noodle-obsessed clan, dress your baby in an adorable Ramen onesie like Luna Legend.
The "Cute Noodles" onsie above can be found on Etsy for $49. It comes in long and short sleeve from sizes 6M to 5/6.
8. Fried Chicken PJ Party
If you buy one item of clothing this year, please let it be these KFC onesies. Teigen and Legend sported these beauties at a party and the internet has never been the same. YOU TOO CAN BE COVERED IN FRIED CHICKEN IF YOU BELIEVE HARD ENOUGH.
These onsies price at $99.99 on Scruffy Swanks. If that seems too expensive, think of the sweet, sweet Instagram photos you will get. It basically pays for itself. Buy the KFC Colonel onesie here.
The KFC Colonel and fried chicken print both come in sizes XS to 5LX. Honestly, I don't feel like I have to sell you on these, I know everyone wants one. Buy the fried chicken onesie here.
9. In Bed, TTYL
For busy people, Teigen and Legend definitely maximize nekkid-in-bed time. They're always wrapped in fluffy down comforters and make us all want to find our Chrissy Teigen to lay in bed with. You can tie your own toga with this simple guide from WikiHow using any white bed sheet you have.
If you don't want to worry about getting your bedding dirty, Target has a huge variety of white sheet sets with pricing from $27 to $50. You're going for a cozy, bed-head look, so don't worry about the sheets getting too fluffy.
You'll also need gorgeous, tousled hair. My go-to texture spray is Not Your Mother's Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray.
It will give you that effortless "I woke up like this" head of hair. Ulta Beauty sells this texture spray for $7. No brainer.
10. It's Always Towel Time
Teigen also spends a lot of time in a towel. Don't we all? Except she's living life in uncomfortable shoes and tight dresses — I go from towel to loose-fitting joggers so I have no excuse for my lounging lifestyle. Have your partner-in-costume rock a typical John Legend V-neck tee and jeans while you're in Chrissy's signature white towel.
If you're not confident in your towel tying abilities or want something to wear underneath it, the white, strapless dress above is $68 from Revolve and is cute AF. It's a bodycon dress, so it will look seamless under the towel (or bed sheet toga) and comes in sizes XS to XL.
11. That Face At The Golden Globes
The face. THE FACE. Chrissy Teigen's not-here-for-it face is the meme/GIF heard round the world. Actually, Teigen was crying during Legend's speech at the 2015 Golden Globes, WHY HAVE WE BEEN MAKING FUN OF HER?
The photo above is what they were actually wearing that night. Do I expect you to go buy an ornate, floor-length gown for Halloween? No. Because it's all about THE FACE.
Wear your hair pulled back with a long-sleeve dress. This one from Amazon is $60 and has a similar neckline. The key to this costume is to make the awkward crying face in every photo possible. I believe in your dedication.
As for your John Legend half, a black suit with a black bow tie will do the trick. Here's a bow tie for just $4.99 from Amazon.
12. Roman Holiday/Pizza Party
If there's one thing we all know and love about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, it's that they enjoy eating good food — especially pizza. While the two were on vacay in Italy, they consumed a lot of pizza. This costume requires each of you carrying a pizza around. You lucky duck, you'll thank me later.
For Chrissy, besides a pizza, pair a cozy sweater with sunglasses that say you DGAF. The ones above from Target are only $16.
As for John Legend's snazzy polka dot tee shirt, Uniqlo sells a great dupe for $15. Don't forget the pizza! Cannot stress that part enough.
13. Iconic Spiderman Kiss
This was the best moment from Lip Sync Battle. Zendaya was performing so (naturally) Chrissy dropped in upside down from the ceiling in a Spiderman costume.
You can pick up a Spiderman costume from any Halloween store. However, the one above can be ordered on Amazon for as low as $39 (size dependent). The trick to Teigen-izing it is to have a curly ponytail sticking out of the back.
In the video, John Legend comes out sporting his normal all-black ensemble, but he's paired it with a gold and black patterned jacket. Depending on your price point, a patterned gold and black jacket could cost several hundred dollars. On the other hand, you could also try checking your local thrift store, but sometimes it's slim pickings in the fancy jacket department. The blazer above is cool and costs a reasonable $66 on Amazon.
There you have it. 13 costumes as iconic as the couple who originally wore them. I guarantee you will have the most luxe Halloween of your entire life if you emulate John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Live long and Legend on, my friends.
