Chrissy Teigen is a Sports Illustrated model, a fantastic cook, a funny blogger/tweeter, and the wife of multi-awarded singer-songwriter John Legend. Now, after being invited to throw the ceremonial first ball at last Tuesday’s Los Angeles Dodgers game, she has one more title to add to that already long list: flawless first pitch thrower, putting to shame the likes of 50 Cent, Justin Bieber, and even President Barack Obama.
Not that we had any doubts that Chrissy would throw a great first pitch. Seeing as how her swimsuit model body is in top shape, her fitness must be at top levels as well. Check out Chrissy’s great form while throwing the ball and her swagger after seeing that she nailed it:

Watch the full throw, now being dubbed as the best celebrity first pitch, here:
Brava, Chrissy! Score one for the supermodels!

In addition to the pitch, Chrissy also nailed the sporty, baseball-chic style that day. She had a customized Dodgers jersey printed with “Nugz 40” at the back (which stands for 40 chicken nuggets, her favorite drunken food from McDonald’s). She wore the Dodger blue team color in the ribbon in her hair, on her spandex shorts, striped crew socks, and cool adidas wedge sneakers.
As much as we love Chrissy’s sporty look, she actually arrived at the Dodger Stadium in a much chicer outfit featuring trendy cutoff shorts and very modelesque over-the-knee boots.

Now, this style is more like the Chrissy Teigen that we know, isn’t it? You can get better views of her fierce boots in this Instagram video of her practicing her pitch with her dad:
Chrissy’s boots are the 3.1 Phillip Lim “Ora” boots named after, you guessed it, Rita Ora. It must be Rita’s obsession with gladiator boots that inspired Phillip Lim to design and name the boots after the “R.I.P.” singer. We first spotted Rita wearing the open-toed version of the boots at her gig at the Parklife Festival in Manchester, England, last year.
