John Legend’s model wife Chrissy Teigen stepped out on the red carpet last night, hours after a heated Twitter debate over illegal drugs.

The Sports Illustrated model attended the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York City.

Wearing a long sleeved, plunge neck dress by Elisabetta Franchi, the petite star looked calm, cool and collected.

Immaculately turned out as always, she styled the look with a flat metallic clutch, gold Casadei ‘Blade’ heels and slicked back hair.

Earlier that day, the 28-year-old became embroiled in an online argument when she ranted about the dangers of marijuana.

The avid Tweeter sparked a huge debate with the sudden outburst, and added fuel to the fire when she slammed those who disagreed with her.

She also claimed that her step uncle died from injecting the drug, and maintained:

"I'm not telling you to stop injecting or smoking pot/weed. i am just sharing my story. i have zero judgments and love you all. <3"

At one stage, an outraged Chrissy questioned why people followed her, and commented:

“Shut. The f***. Up. You idiots.”

The shameless social media later posted a link to an article dissecting the outburst, which she accompanied with the statement “my work here is done”.

Ensuring she had the last laugh, she signed off:

“goodnight. fragrance awards tomorrow and it was always todd's favorite night. emotional. he loved cologne before pot took his all his senses”
