Chrissy Teigen really wants people to see her boobs.

Instagram isn't the platform for such an exhibition, but she found a loophole.


On Monday, the supermodel shared a topless photo of herself from a fashion spread in W magazine. Posing in underwear and lacy boots (and with her left nipple exposed), Teigen looked sultry as ever—perhaps too sultry. "Honored to be in the company of such gorgeous women!" she wrote in the caption.

Hours later, the photo was deleted—likely because it violated Instagram's community guidelines. "The nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back," Teigen, 29, tweeted.

Just how did Teigen violate Instagram's community guidelines? According to the social media platform, "We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don't allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too."

Teigen was back at it Tuesday, as she posed topless while getting her hair and makeup done before a photo shoot. This time, her right nipple was carefully obscured by a strategically placed hairspray bottle.

As of Wednesday morning, the latest topless photo had not been deleted from Teigen's Instagram. It received more than 100,000 likes and 3,300 comments.
