Chrissy Teigen makes her Twitter account public once more, and gives as good as she gets on the social media platform.

Chrissy Teigen wore one of the most daring outfits at Sunday's (20Nov16) American Music Awards in Los Angeles and paid a price for it, but reacted with typical good humour.

Teigen's daring dress with a thigh slit so high it reached her waist was certainly a fashion risk and she knew it, but she wasn't prepared for quite how much of a risk it was. While she was walking on the red carpet, the dress shifted and photographers got rather more in the frame than they had bargained for - a peek at her genital area.

Thanking her glam squad and fashion suppliers on Instagram on Monday (21Nov16), she wrote: "#AMAs! love you so so so much - @jenatkinhair @1maryphillips @monicarosestyle @kimmiekyees (apologies to anyone harmed mentally or physically by my hooha). Dress is #yousefakbar and shoes are @dsquared2." She then added, "Laser hair removal is @sevlaseraesthetics."

Ahead of the event, Teigen also made her Twitter account public once again after making it private last month (Oct16). She insisted her decision had nothing to do with online trolls, who had been picking her apart on social media.

“I just feel like I am absorbing things 24/7," she said. "My body and mind cannot handle it anymore.”

She then had a couple of Twitter exchanges, giving as good as she got from followers who were offended by her AMAs look. In response to Twitter user Koko Chisasa, who griped, "Underwear-free @chrissyteigen, what happened to being a lady? #SMH," she joked, "I am pretty sure you could clearly see I'm a lady".

She then added: "I was walking. It (dress) floated. It's over. I can't take it back. Here is a formal apology. What else would you like?"

Another Twitter user noted: "DAMN GIRL you really DID have to shave above the knee", prompting the model to respond, "It took about an hour."

After her racy red carpet appearance, Teigen introduced husband John Legend's performance at the Microsoft Theatre, gushing, "This next performer is a brilliant musician and a wonderful father, who makes a pretty damn good breakfast sandwich."
