"You guys love shopping at a place where you go to get one thing and you walk out with 5,000 things?" she asked the crowd as Atkin mouthed the word "Target," the Zoe Report says. "I have a whole line there." She didn't include more details, such as when it would be released or what would be in the collection, but the announcement alone is enough to get her fans excited.
What could the line be? Teigen has credibility in the home goods, cooking, and clothing arenas, so the options are nearly limitless.
The conference Teigen made the announcement at is aimed at women wanting to build their dream careers. The model, mother, and mogul had some great advice in this area. "I'm not going to come out here and say 'only do what you're passionate about,'" she told the crowd. More often than not, people advise you to only do what you love or what you care about, when in reality, your dreams are often mixed with things you would rather not do. "Nothing that I've done has come without something better coming from it," Teigen added when she spoke about the importance of networking. Another key takeaway from her talk was the importance of knowing how you are perceived and apologizing when necessary.
Teigen's career is the perfect example of building one opportunity off of another opportunity. She was scouted to be a model when she was 18-years-old. Before that she didn't think that was an option. "I always wanted to be a teacher or wanted to do something with food," she shared with The Daily Beast. She took every opportunity as it came even if it came with a setback. In an interview with DuJour, Teigen revealed that she was once fired from a Forever 21 shoot. Now she has built her career into something much bigger. She has cookbooks, models, acts as a commentator on Lip Sync Battle with LL Cool J, and will soon add (Target) line creator to her list.
