The 2022 City Harvest Red Supper Club benefit gala, held at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC on Tuesday, raised a record-breaking $5.2 million, enough to provide more than 12 million meals for New Yorkers in need.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were among the biggest stars in attendance at the event.

The EGOT winner looked suave in a black pinstripe double-breasted suit, which he teamed with a black shirt and a matching bow. He finished off his ensemble with a red watch and a pair of black patent dress shoes.

Ever the scene-stealer, the 36-year-old model wowed in a pale green dress from Jenny Packham’s Pre-Fall 2022 collection.

The “Marlene” gown is embellished with columns of sequins and crystal beading, accenting the dress’ whimsical sheer silhouette.

It also has a see-through cape-like bodice with green feathers covering the bust area, waist-accentuating jewels, a round neck, cropped sleeves, and a floor-length hem.

Underneath her striking gown, Chrissy donned a pair of Jimmy Choo “Minny” sandals in metallic silver leather.

The cookbook author gave her look more sparkles by accessorizing with a pair of Kallati dangling earrings and carrying a pink Judith Leiber Slide crystal clutch, curated by her stylist Alana Van Deraa.

Wearing her signature makeup look, Chrissy wore a swipe of nude lip gloss and highlighted her eyes with smokey eyeshadow and eyeliner.

She then coiffed her tresses into a side-parted bun, with wavy strands left loose on either side of her gorgeously made-up face.

A day earlier, the Cravings cookware founder made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her docuseries, The Way Down: God, Greed, and The Cult of Gwen Shamblin, which is her first docuseries as executive producer.

The documentary miniseries premiered its last two episodes on Thursday, April 28, on HBO Max.

It explores some of the accusations made against Gwen Shamblin Lara, the founder of a diet program Weigh Down Workshop, and The Remnant Fellowship, a new Christian group led by Gwen.

“She was an author. She sold a lot of books. And then she re… You know. What these people love more than money is power. So, she kind of decided to meld it with this, like, toxic Christianity and then start this cult-like following at this church called The Remnant Fellowship,” Teigen explained.

“She preyed on the insecurities of a lot of the people that followed her. And she basically had these, you know, fundamentalist values, but she tied it into, you know, you need to pray instead of every time you want to eat, you should just pray,” Teigen explained about The Weigh Down Workshop founder Gwen Shamblin Lara.

“And it was basically, like, intuitive eating. But it was just all done so wrong and so toxic, and everyone bought the book” Teigen added about the popular diet book that you can find on Amazon.

For the interview, Chrissy showcased her curves in a head-turning mini dress from Stella McCartney, available for $4,900 at Mytheresa.

The lingerie-like slip dress is made from silk and is fully embellished with light-catching crystals. It also has contrasting orange lace trims, a cleavage-baring plunging neckline, and a thigh-grazing laced hem.

The mom-of-two paired her fun mini dress with Femme LA’s “The London” lace-up sandals in electric green. These metallic sandals feature wraparound ankle ties, pointed open toes, and 4.5-inch stiletto heels.

Her outing came after stealing the spotlight from her husband John Legend on the opening night of his Love in Las Vegas residency.

Chrissy put her enviable figure on display in a pink halter-neck gown from New York-based contemporary label Retrofête.

The $695 “Isabel” dress fuses delicate crochet and statement sequins. It has a knee-high slit at the back and a relaxed silhouette that clung perfectly to her curves.
