Chrissy Teigen, your Hangout Fest Correspondent.
Here are some things we love: style (obvi), models, food, music, and humor. Do those things go together all the time? Unfortunately not, so when they do, we get all kinds of excited. You may have heard that this weekend is the Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and that we’ll be streaming the WHOLE thing live at hangout.mtv.com. OK, so there we have music covered, what about the style? Well, we’re totally excited to announce that the HILARIOUS host of VH1’s Model Employee Chrissy Teigen will be taking her host game on the road, and joining Vinny Guadagnino as an MTV Hangout Fest correspondent. Chrissy will be interviewing bands, breaking down the festival style, and much more, and with a lineup that includes rad names like Kendrick Lamar, Solange, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, it’s gonna be major. Now, we’ve been following Chrissy’s hilarious Twitter for awhile now, and it never ceases to crack us up in an embarrassing way. Not only that, but the model also posts AMAZING recipes on her food blog, So Delushious!, on the regs, and they always, always make our mouths water. Did you know she wanted to be a chef before becoming a model? See? Fave. The hilarious Chrissy will be supplying us with style quips and belly-laughs all weekend long. We. Are. Psyched. So psyched, in fact, that we got Chrissy to take some time out of her totally nutty travel schedule to chat with us about the gig and give us a little taste of what we have to look forward to at Hangout.
MTV STYLE: Can you tell us what you’ll be doing as a correspondent down at Hangout Fest?
CHRISSY TEIGEN: Apparently, my job is to have the best time possibly imaginable! I know I get to see Vinny, whom I adore (and yet do not know) and hang out with my friend Katherine Webb. Those two things paired with eating mass amounts of shrimp and photo bombing pretty much sound like the best job ever.
What did you pack in your suitcase?
Apparently, ALL of the wrong things. Maybe one of our fun games could be me raiding other people’s suitcases because I have been traveling SO much that I didn’t prepare too well in the music festival clothing department. You can’t just wear normal s*** to a music festival. There is definitely a certain look and that certain look is 100% NOT in my suitcase.
Do you have any festival style tips or essentials?
Short shorts, deodorant, and a flask.
Is there anything you’re nervous about with regards to being a correspondent at Hangout fest?
I am nervous that no one is going to care about me and just want to hang out with Vinny, then I’ll be stuck being the designated “can you take a photo of me and Vinny” photographer.
