What do you call an ever-larger-than-life version of Ariana Grande? Well, Ariana Venti. And that’s exactly what Chrissy Teigen is calling her high-ponytail-wearing alter ego. The model introduced this plaid-clad persona on Instagram from Europe on Thursday, while accompanying husband John Legend for his “Darkness and Light” tour.

The model and mom posted a photo of herself on Instagram standing onstage and singing as she held her hand to her ear. She wore a long high ponytail, a la Grande; an off-white $617 high-waisted plaid skirt with matching $1,870 over-the-knee boots; and a cropped gray jacket. “Ariana Venti… Your mic is good to go,” Teigen caption the post.



And it’s not just the ponytail and singing that’s Ariana-adjacent. The girl loves her plaid. The outfit that comes to mind, most reminiscent of Teigen’s, is the black-and-white plaid jumpsuit with matching knee socks, pumps, jacket, and headband that she wore for Seventeen magazine in 2014.

Grande’s been wont to rock a plaid miniskirt.


Sometimes it’s in jacket form.

And Venti totally shares her plaid appreciation.
