Chrissy Teigen revealed on her Instagram Stories that she, too, falls prey to false advertising. This time, the model and cookbook author was duped by a photo of a seemingly-beautiful, feather-lined robe. 

“I was so excited to order this robe because it’s like very ‘kill your husband’ vibes,” Teigen said in the video posted on Thursday. “Like, gorgeous.”

She said she even ordered the robe in every available color because she was “so excited.”

But the reality didn’t quite match up, and she couldn’t stop laughing about it. 

“Here,” she said, moving her camera to show her team modeling three different colors of the robe as they all laughed at how unlike the photo they looked. “This is what came. In what world?”

The robe was listed on sale for $29.99, down from an original price of $59.99. 

Teigen captioned the story “lmao trash birds,” which pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Rather than the sultry, old-Hollywood glam vibe Teigen was hoping for, these robes remind us more of what Moira Rose (Catherine O’Hara’s character in “Schitt’s Creek”) wore in the fictional film “The Crows Have Eyes.”

Teigen wasn’t the only one to be duped by the pretty photo of this particular robe.

Another online shopper took to Twitter to share that she’d ordered the same thing and was also disappointed with the “#fail” that arrived.

Teigen joins many other online shoppers who’ve been unpleasantly surprised when their order finally arrived

In December, TikTok user Anna Dinh shared a photo of what she received after ordering a bridesmaid’s dress from an online marketplace. Dinh told Insider that the dress wound up being the “total opposite” of what she thought she’d be getting.

She captioned her post, “Can’t ever trust ordering dresses online smh.”

It’s not clear whether Teigen is going to try to return her disappointing robes. But on the bright side, it’s not quite the most expensive mistaken purchase she’s made recently. Earlier this month, the model shared a story with her followers about a time when she accidentally bought a $13,000 bottle of wine.
