Chrissy Teigen "cried like a baby" when she found out she was on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue 2014.
The model graces the front of the magazine's most popular annual issue alongside models Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge and was overwhelmed when she found out she had been picked for the honor.
Her husband, singer John Legend, told TV show Good Morning America, "She was so excited, and it was a surprise because you never know who's going to be on the cover. These are all beautiful women. She's been in the issue for several years now, and every year it's been someone else. And this year it's her. We're very excited about it."
Chrissy took to Twitter to express her excitement, writing, "I mean what else is there to say. I just cannot believe it. What an honor. Never, ever, ever have felt this kind of pure joy. Crazy crazy [sic]."
Taylor Swift has drastically changed her signature long, blonde locks.
The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer posted a video on her Instagram displaying all of the folks circled around to watch her get her hair lopped off. "This is how many people are watching me getting a haircut right now... We don’t do anything without an audience, do we?” she says in the video, while her audience laughs and cheers her on.
Swift then posted a Polaroid photo of her (with her new 'do) and fellow singer Ellie Goulding, under which she captioned it, “London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don’t care. (!!!)"
It was time for a change - and my what a change, Taylor!

Who needs cash when you have a Twitter account?
So says execs for the upcoming Marc Jacobs pop-up shop for New York Fashion Week, anyway. Appropriately titled the Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop, the company will offer visitors goods in exchange for Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook posts with the hashtag "#MJDaisyChain." So while it may be considered free by American monetary standards, the Marc Jacobs products will be paid for with social networking fare.
The shop - which will be open from February 7 to February 9 - comes complete with a lounge, a Daisy photo booth (for your Instagram, of course!), drinks, and Wi-Fi (naturally).
Additionally, "he most creative social media posts" will win Marc Jacobs accessories throughout the day. Sounds like a good deal for any fashionista!

Gabourey Sidibe has dismissed criticism of her appearance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
The plus-sized actress - who shot to fame with her Oscar-nominated lead role in 2009 film Precious - was subjected to mean comments about her weight on Twitter after walking the red carpet at the Hollywood awards ceremony, but she was able to laugh at her critics.
"To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK [sic]," she wrote on her Twitter.
The 30-year-old star - who sported a floor-length silver gown to the Golden Globes - was praised for her witty response to the criticism, with nearly 25,000 people retweeting her message. "Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you! #notmyjetthough #imnotthatfancy [sic]," she added.
Due to the efforts of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and a number of customers who expressed their presence online, retailers The Gap and Zara have released statements temporarily banning the sale of products made from angora rabbit fur.
PETA recently released undercover footage of the horrifying conditions and treatment of angora rabbits in a Chinese angora fur farm, prompting many companies to halt sales of the fur. The Gap and Zara were not as quick to jump on the compassionate bandwagon, facing harsh criticism online, as well as a petition which garnered over 295,000 signatures.
As a result, Zara released a statement on December 18th, claiming that they will stop ordering angora fur until it can verify the farms from which they purchase (let's be honest - they're not going to find a farm removing the fur humanely at the price points that they're used to). The Gap posted on Twitter with a similar sentiment.
How about they invest in cruelty-free faux fur instead of wasting time and money with their own investigations?

+ The Kardashian trio unveiled their latest clothing collection, which they launched in collaboration with British retailer Lipsy. Unsurprisingly, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe model off their floral, curve-hugging dresses in the adverts for the line (perhaps it's the only way they'd be able to sell it?). Major kudos that they're not of the typical sequined and glittery New Year's Eve dress fare, but at the same time, I can't imagine women flocking to the stores (or in Americans' cases, online store) for a summery frock when they're looking for something festive.
+ Britney Spears surprised fans with a Twitter photo showcasing her new hair color: platinum blonde. Love it or leave it?
+ Tyra Banks seems to have joined Jennifer Lawrence in the war against negative body image words, claiming that she refuses to utter "plus-size," instead opting for "fiercely real." Not sure how quickly the latter will catch on, but it's a start!
Iggy Azalea doesn't give a f**k about her wardrobe malfunction.
The 23-year-old singer was posing for the paparazzi as she arrived at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam last night when she flashed a little more than intended, but Iggy took to her Instagram account to clear up any confusion about the clothing mishap.
"If you think this involves my vag lips your mistaken. And yeah I'm posting it just to let you know I don't give a f**k about a bikini line and the line that joins my ass to my leg," she wrote alongside the picture in question.
Iggy also commented about what is being referred to as "the wardrobe malfunction of the year" on her Twitter page. "Lol! [Laugh out loud] That's my ass from the front not my p***y!!!! Bahahaha! I glued my panties to my p***y before I went out I'm not that stupid [sic]," she wrote.
Kate Upton was told she was "too American" to be a model.
The curvy beauty - who is now one of the most recognizable pin-ups in the world - was outraged when she was initially rejected from a major agency who assumed she would be too ''lazy'' because of her nationality.
"I'm not going to name names, but one agency told me, 'You're too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.' I was so offended! I've never been so offended! I was like, 'You know that you're in America, right?' And it wasn't 'American models - it was 'American women are lazy,' period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!" she revealed.
Kate, 21, headed straight to International Management Group - which is home to supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss - after the shocking rejection, and was signed on the spot.
Never to be one who blends in with the crowd, Pink has adopted an interesting choice in hair style this month. Not unlike what Avril Lavigne has been doing to hers, the pop singer and mother of one has shaved half her head and transformed the other side from a pixie cut to flowing platinum extensions (with a touch of pink, of course). The "Just Give Me a Reason" singer has no regrets about her drastic hair decision, writing on Twitter, “Officially decided that June is crazy hair month. If there’s something you have been wanting to do—go for it! No Fear! Crazy hair is fun."
What do you think of Pink's new 'do? Is she pulling it off with class, or is it just an absolute hair debacle?
