Chrissy Teigen knows a thing or two about being busy. Between her never-ending modeling gigs, writing cookbooks, raising her daughter Luna, going on the road with her husband John Legend, and posting hilarious tweets, her schedule is jam-packed. In fact, have we ever seen her off?
“I don’t know when off is,” she tells InStyle. “Someone’s always watching you, someone’s always tweeting about you or instagramming you. I feel like I have to be on at all times. Plus, being a mom, your mind is always completely consumed by this little human being all the time. I’m never off.” No matter how crazy her days are (paparazzi, Luna, and all), she always looks so pulled together. So when A.L.C. and Intermix joined forces to create a collection of elevated sportswear for the “on duty” woman (no “off duty” looks here), it’s no surprise they tapped Teigen to be the model and muse.
The capsule comprises 16 luxe wardrobe staples. Think effortless, polished silhouettes in neutral tones and covetable shapes. “We’re on-the-go working women,” she says. “There’s never time off, but you still want to look pulled together and cool. I love that the line has chic, easy staples that mix and match.”
Plus, the pieces can easily be dressed down or up, taking you from day to night and everything in between. “You really can wear them for everything,” Teigen explains. “I can’t imagine not being able to dress the outfits down with a pair of sneakers or put some dope booties with them and go out at night.” As for Teigen’s favorite pieces? “I love the bodysuits,” she says. “The fabric is so beautiful and touchable and sexy. I also love the high-waisted green pants with the zippers, though. They hug all the right places and make every outfit look cooler. We paired them with the chunky cropped turtleneck and I love the bell sleeves on it. There’s something sexy about an oversized sleeve where you can just see your fingertips.” Check out our favorite pieces in the collection below. Then, shop it exclusively at intermixonline.com.

It’s very unlikely you’ll ever see Chrissy Teigen drinking a Unicorn Frappuccino, or anything Unicorn-themed for that matter.
The model and cookbook author told People on Wednesday while promoting McDonald’s McDelivery service that she is “exhausted” by the new trend.
“The unicorn burrito with cotton candy? That’s not a burrito. That’s a tortilla filled with cotton candy and jelly on it,” she says. “I’m just not understanding a lot of things in the food world and I feel like it’s all about the Instagram now. I mean, I’m old school in the way where I’m like just serve good food and people will come to it. Now everyone feels like they need a gimmick and you really don’t—just make good, hearty beautiful food.”
When it comes to what food she would like to see have a moment in the food world, she had two words: meat pies.
“I do feel like meat pies haven’t taken off enough in the United States,” Teigen says. “Everywhere else they appreciate a good meat pie, like at the gas station you get a meat pie. They’re so easy to hold, so delicious. Ugh, I love them.”
While chatting with PEOPLE, Teigen also gave an update on her upcoming second cookbook, saying the process has been difficult: “The first one, it’s every recipe you know you love, your family loves, then you start to work on the second one and John [Legend] compares it to a second album,” she says. “You want to change it up but you also know why it worked so well in the first place so you don’t want to change it up too much.” The mom to daughter Luna, 1, with husband Legend says her palate has also changed. “Writing the last book I was pregnant, and promoting the last book I was pregnant and the food that I loved is different from the food that I love now,” she says. “That’s definitely the challenge in it.”
“I keep saying I want to put in a few more healthy options in the book but that doesn’t tell the right story,” Teigen says. “To have like a tuna casserole oozing with cheese and then next to it a pomegranate salad or something, that drives me wild, it makes me anxious even thinking about it. So basically I either have to let that part go and realize everyone has different palates and in the same way that I sometimes want a light salad, sometimes I want a casserole. I just have to figure out mentally how to get past that.”
