Chrissy Teigen has called for more diversity in the modelling industry and for people to "start embracing people" for who they are rather than stereotyping them based on their race or skin colour.
The 31-year-old model – who is Thai, German and Norwegian – would like to see more Asian men and women in the fashion industry and thinks it is “really important to start embracing people” for who they are rather than stereotyping them based on their race or skin colour.
She told E! News: “I think its really important to start embracing people … seeing them in roles that are not necessarily ‘That Asian Girl’ or ‘That Asian Boy.’
“I want it to be a normal thing to be able to see Asian models, and I think Asian models are really underrepresented in the industry, especially on the runways or in magazines.”
Meanwhile, the brunette beauty – who has 10-month-old daughter Luna with her husband John Legend – previously opened up about her weight struggles, admitting she was so obsessed with her figure that she would step onto the scales “three times a day”.
She said: “Honestly, I was so stuck on the scale game. Like, I was the kind of person that was, you know, pre-baby, I weighed myself like three times a day. I knew how much I weighed at 8 a.m., and I knew how much I was supposed to weigh at 1 p.m., and I knew how much I was supposed to weigh at 8 p.m.”
However, since her pregnancy, Chrissy has been feeling more body confident.
She added: “When I was that pregnant, I was so, so incredibly happy – and at that point you’re just like, ‘This is it, take it or leave it!’
“I feel completely at food peace right now – having a baby has given me this weird confidence. Like, listen – I’m gonna have these little cheat days, these little cheat moments … I always send the email [before a photo shoot] like, ‘Just so you know, I’m not what I used to be!'”
