Chrissy Teigen is embracing some major retro 90s vibes.

Teigen’s Instagram comes a day after news broke that she and Legend sold their Beverly Hills mansion for roughly $17million.

Donning a teased and heavily hair sprayed red wig, Chrissy was the spitting image of Peggy Bundy – immortalized by actress Katey Sagal over 30 years ago.

Chrissy rocked an outfit that Peggy herself would no doubt find in her suburban Chicago closet: a long sleeve black and stretch-velvet textured catsuit with shoulder pads and a leopard print belt.

The Cravings author even sported Peggy’s signature red lip and over-the-top expressions for a trio of snaps. 

‘Go together like a horse and carriage,’ she penned in the caption, quoting the sitcom’s famous theme song.

Jimmy Van Heusen’s 1955 tune Love and Marriage scored the opening credits of the iconic late 80s/early 90s sitcom. 

Seated with Chrissy was her husband John Legend who looked decidedly more dapper than Al Bundy [Ed O’Neill] ever did.

The EGOT winner rocked a leopard print short-sleeve button up with high waisted black slacks and fury lined Gucci slides.

Married … With Children was a half-hour comedy that aired on Fox for 11 seasons about the poor, classless Bundy family and their various gripes about life.

Ed O’Neill played family patriarch Al who loathed his job at a local shoe store, never made enough money, disliked his family but loved a beer on the couch and the ‘nudie bar’.

Peggy, a stay-at-home mom, was the antithesis of a homemaker who rocked spandex, big hair, long nails and a sassy attitude.

The kids, Kelly [Christina Applegate] and Bud [David Faustino] were delightfully lazy and directionless.

The hysterical series was billed as the answer to the hardworking, fun loving Huxtable family on The Cosby Show.

Unlike the trashy Bundy clan, the Legend household is certainly not strapped for cast these days as Chrissy and John just sold their multi-million dollar Beverly Hills mansion. 

The couple moved out of the estate last August, according to the New York Post, which went into escrow after only a week on the market in 2020 at a selling price of $24 million.

Realtor Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills told the outlet that the aforementioned deal did not go through, creating delays in the process while giving potential purchasers the false impression the property wasn’t on the market. 

Ultimately, Teigen and Legend – who bought the home in 2016 for $14.1 million – ended up selling the space to a private-equity executive for $16.8M, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The home, which was built in 1966, was once owned by Rihanna, who later sold it in 2014 for $7.65 million, after litigation over construction. 

Investors who bought the home made significant renovations prior to Teigen and Legend’s purchase two years later, including a personal gym and movie theater.

Peck told the Post the home ‘is hands down the most beautiful home in Beverly Hills’ and that ‘it has the finest finishes I have ever seen.’

He added: ‘It features 33-foot ceilings, a sculptural staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping canyon views while bespoke teak ceilings from Thailand, cerused oak floors steel-rolled clay walls exude sensuality.’

The home sits on nearly an acre of land in a private gated area just minutes from The Beverly Hills Hotel and Rodeo Drive. 

Listing photos show just how luxurious the stylish celebrity couple’s home is, with 33-foot high ceilings, a sculptural staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the canyon. 

Teigen, meanwhile, is in the middle of a bullying scandal for past toxic social media behavior, which has led Macy’s to cease selling her kitchen line and her exit from the Netflix show Never Have I Ever. 

The model/cookbook author said she could be ‘canceled forever’ amid the career crisis.
