Model Moms in 'Vogue'
The August issue of US Vogue features mom-to-be Linda Evangelista on the cover and interviews with fellow supermodels Christy Turlington, Carolyn Murphy, Stella Tennant, and more. They discuss many topics, including plastic surgery, their careers, and how having children has changed their lives.
Christy has two young kids, Grace, 2 1/2, and Finn, 5 months, with her husband actor/director Ed Burns and recently was coaxed out of retirement from modeling to appear in Versace‘s fall ad campaign (along with other models moms including Cindy Crawford).
Linda’s baby is due in October, and she says that she is loving her pregnancy body.
”I’m not freaked out at all, I embrace it. I believe I’m doing everything to go through this as smoothly as possible. I’m either doing yoga or exercising every day.”
Other highlights include:
-Model Angela Lindvall breastfeeding her 14 month old son Sebastian.
– Carolyn Murphy, 30, talks about working right after giving birth to her daughter Dylan, now 5 1/2:
"When I was pregnant, I gained 60 pounds… I’d just had Dylan when my first test shots for Estée Lauder came up. I had leaky breasts and saggy skin. But Aerin Lauder was already a mother—thank God!—and understood."
– Stella Tennant, whose 15-year career has included shoots for Burberry and Louis Vuitton, shares the challenges of being a working mom with four kids:
"It never occurred to me I’d be modeling at 35. I thought I was shooting myself in the foot when I had my first child. Actually, I feel much more comfortable with myself than I ever have. My body has been very kind to me. I’ve had four healthy babies, so I’m not about to criticize it! As a matter of fact, I didn’t notice any change in me, although my ribs are bigger since I had my last one. Karl Lagerfeld, who can detect a pregnancy before any gynecologist, told me that! At Chanel, they know my body better than I do."
