All hail Chrissy Teigen, the undisputed Queen of Twitter

Caitlin McBride and Freya Drohan

This isn't the first time, we've written an ode to Chrissy Teigen - and it won't be the last.

As if being a Sports Illustrated cover girl and international supermodel wasn't enough, we can count her Twitter as keeping her at the number one spot on our girl crush list.

She's the 'every girl', the girl who calls out Donald Trump, is wonderfully self-deprecating, has a fondness for white wine and even makes fun of her modelling career.

Cover girl Chrissy joined fellow models Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge as this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover stars.

Wearing a pair a tiny pair of pink bikini bottoms, Chrissy oozed sex appeal on the coveted 50th Anniversary cover. However, like the rest of us, she is not immune to a body hang up.

"I didn't know butts were a thing until I was 23. Then came Jennifer Lopez and people were like, 'That butt is great.' Now you have to have a butt. It sucks for me," Chrissy moaned to Esquire magazine. "I have a little half-Asian butt, and the more I work out, the more I try to get it bigger, it's just going to get flatter and harder."

Here are some of the tweets which won our hearts:

1. She still gets excited about landing magazine covers


2. See, we told you.


3. She recognises who runs the world.


4.. There's always one.


5. She knows how to get someone's attention.


6. She says what we're all thinking.


7. She doesn't take herself too seriously.


8. She actually reads her @'s...and gets just as creeped out by them.


9. She's practically twins with Kate Middleton .


10. Why, sometimes, it's good to be a bitch.


And while we're at it, here are some of her best quotes:

On the twerk star super star:

“I don't care what you have to say about Miley Cyrus that bikini line is ingrown f***ing free and I respect it.”

On her beauty tricks:

"For the early morning shoots, I pop eye pads in the freezer the night before, and when I take them out in the morning they are already cold and active and are great under my eyes. I keep my eye pads right next to my red velvet Ben & Jerry's in the freezer."


On being high maintenance:

“When I ask John if it's weird that I'm wearing the same outfit as yesterday he knows to say "Not weird at all" or else all hell breaks loose."

On fashion bloggers:

“I love when people hashtag all the brands they are wearing. It’s very #cool and #natural and it shows how #fashionable you are.”

On life’s woes:

“Why can’t we all get drunk and crave salads?”
