Chrissy Teigen Unveils Bridal Swimwear Collection, “Beach Bunny Bride,” With The Help Of Kate Upton
Brides-to-be listen up.
If you are planning on walking down the coast line instead of the aisle to say “I Do,” Chrissy Teigen has designed the perfect ensemble. The 27-year-old Sports Illustrated model has teamed up with Beach Bunny Swimwear to create a Bridal Collection.
“Beach Bunny has had the honor of working with Chrissy over the last few years and when we found out she was engaged, it was only natural to ask if she would design a bridal collection with us!” said the brand’s CEO Angela Chittenden.
Teigen, who is the fiance of R&B crooner John Legend, was inspired by her own engagement which took place on the Maldives Islands. “We are returning to the Maldives during our honeymoon,” Teigen told People at the launch of her line for Beach Bunny during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami Beach in July 2013. “I want to wear a bathing suit for my husband that makes me feel sexy. I know other women feel the same way, so I was inspired to design a line. This bikini is not going to come off unless someone wants it to, which I hope he does!”
The four-piece collection features Swarovski Crystals, lots of Chantilly lace from Paris, and the word “Bride” which is written across several bikini bottoms. “A bridal swimsuit is a very special and sexy look designed to make your man’s heart skip a beat,” said Teigen. “While the swimwear had to be eye-popping as well as functional for honeymoon travel, it also needed to stand apart from other styles on the beach. So we added a little humor!”
For the campaign, Teigen modeled her own designs for Beach Bunny Bride in Belize and enlisted the help of fellow SI swimsuit model Kate Upton.
