Chrissy Teigen beams as she shows off her abs in a frayed plaid shirt and sports bra in LA
She caused a stir after buying a row of seats at Radio City Music Hall to avoid crowds during the proliferation of Omicron variants.
But Chrissy Teigen pulled on a happy face when she stepped outside after the controversy erupted in Los Angeles on Monday.
The smiling model, 36, wore a frayed plaid shirt, black sports bra and leggings as she stepped out into the sun with a grin on her face.

Overall, the model was a vision of comfortable coolness as she went about her day.
Chrissy wore a navy blue hat over her light brown locks, which were pulled back into a no-nonsense bun.
She walked around in style in a pair of comfy black slippers.
The beauty didn’t have a handbag with her, but her hands were full with the most important things: a bottle of water, a cell phone and a face mask.

Chrissy didn’t address the Radio City Music Hall controversy on her social media after the news broke, asking followers for advice on making challah bread in her most recent tweet.
‘I’m making my first challah! Can you put minced garlic in bread dough? Is this absurd or common, I don’t know bread,” she tweeted, along with several grimacing emojis.
On her Instagram Stories, she posted a video of a food delivery robot she described as “So f**kin cute.”

It all comes after a photo taken Friday showed Chrissy and her husband John Legend buying an entire row of seats at Radio City Music Hall to avoid crowds and onlookers amid the Omicron variant spreading across the city.
The couple took their children, Luna, four, and Miles, two, to Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular starring The Rockettes, where an unnamed concert-goer took the photo of them.
The person told Fox news that Grammy Award-winning singer and his famous wife had clearly bought the entire row of seats behind them to keep anyone from breathing behind their backs.

Photos from the evening show only one bodyguard, and presumably his family, with at least two other people sitting next to him in the otherwise empty row of seats. Each row in the orchestra section has a dozen seats, and buying an entire row would cost over $3,000.
Some on social media were quick to condemn the wealthy celebrity couple, who have a combined net worth of $75 million, because their COVID precautions may have prevented other families from seeing The Rockettes that night.
The source also noted that the family slipped into the orchestra seats just before 5 p.m. to further avoid the crowds, after doing some Christmas shopping at FAO Schwarz.

Legend then left 10 minutes before the end of the show to avoid being noticed and accosted by fans, while bodyguard helped escort Teigen and their children out of the theater when the show formally ended.
Some people took to social media after photos from their outing were published Monday to denounce the couple as elitist by buying a whole row of seats to avoid possible exposure to COVID.
“So @ChrissyTeigen and @JohnLegend denied the children of other families the chance to see the Christmas show because they didn’t want to be disturbed by the serfs,” wrote one Twitter user, calling them “a few elite jerks.”

Another user also called them “fake” for buying “a whole row” [at[ Radio City and freeze out regular Americans.
‘Who else is sick and tired of Hollyweird libtards infringing on regular Americans,’ the user asked, rhetorically, telling Teigen and Legend: ‘Next time stay home… no one likes you.’
The unnamed source also told FOX News that the celebrity couple kept their masks on for the duration of 90-minute Christmas Spectacular, except for a brief moment when Teigen enjoyed a quick snack.
According to the venue’s policy, guests 12 and older are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID, and anyone who is two weeks past their second dose is not required to wear a mask.
Still, many patrons do wear their masks, as New York City’s COVID positivity rate increases.
The city was averaging nearly 1,600 new COVID cases every day when data was last updated on November 30, a jump of around 25 percent from the 1,200 case daily average from two weeks earlier.
It has already become an Omicron hotspot, with seven cases of the variant detected in the city as of Monday morning, accounting for almost all of the state’s eight cases, and reaching a higher total than anywhere else in the United States.
