Chrissy Teigen dazzles in retro modeling pics from ’15 years ago’

Chrissy Teigen went back to her modeling roots with a new throwback Instagram post on Friday.

The 35-year-old cookbook author has taken a step back from catwalking since creating her culinary empire but she reminded her 34.5million followers that ’15 years ago’ she definitely had what it takes to be a super model.

Always one to joke at her own expense, the mother of two was quick to laugh at her style in the images as she was wearing her ‘own random clothes’ which included lacey gloves and ripped tights.

’15 years ago, a test shoot to get an agency with my own random clothes,’ the beauty captioned her post.

Adding a crying laughing emoji and quipping: ‘here’s the deal I know how to model and you don’t’

The star’s ‘random clothes’ were definitely of-the-moment for a decade and a half ago. She rocked voluminous wavy hair and had her waterline thickly etched with black eyeliner. 

One look saw the 5’9″ stunner wearing a silky black babydoll top with black underwear, another a slinky white dress with peep-toe platform patent leather pumps.

Replying to a fan who asked how she’s been doing, Chrissy responded, ‘I’ve spent weeks just saying tweets to shampoo bottles’ 

Back on March 24, Chrissy appeared to be totally done with Twitter as she addressed her 13.7 million followers with a lengthy explanation of why she was exiting the platform.

It came amid a string of negative comments from trolls, which the model said had left her feeling ‘deeply bruised.’

‘Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,’ she began.

‘But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,’ she admitted.

‘My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not,’ wrote the star, referring to her frequent fiery Twitter exchanges.

‘My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!’

She continued in the post: ‘I’m just a sensitive s**t, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you’ 

'I’m just a sensitive s**t, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you,' she said when deleting Twitter a month ago
