Happy birthday, Chrissy Teigen! The LOL-inducing model, who is writing her first-ever cookbook, turns 29 today. Best known for her stint as a Sports Illustrated cover girl, Teigen has since landed cool gigs, ranging from acting as judge on MTV's "Snack-Off" to the aforementioned cookbook deal.

The foodie always delivers -- particularly when it comes to her sense of style. "I keep it pretty simple—I love layering. I love big, cozy, off-the-shoulder pieces," she tells "When times are cold but you still gotta be hot, do a big, slouchy sweater off-the-shoulder. There’s nothing sexier than that."
