Blake Lively spent the weekend getting reflective on the timeline, which included a glance again at her postpartum vogue. The Rhythm Section actress (and mother of three) spoke candidly concerning the wrestle to seek out outfits after giving delivery to her youngest daughter with Ryan Reynolds, Betty.
Blake posted a photograph from her January 2020 interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Instagram, when she pieced collectively an outfit utilizing a Lanvin shirt and Net-a-Porter gown. “No one had samples that fit me after giving birth,” she defined. “And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many.”
She continued, “It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer. It’s alienating and confusing. And I wish I felt as confident then as I do now, a year later looking back. That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply. What a beautiful miracle. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect.”
Blake praised Megababe founder Katie Sturino for her willpower to “challenging brands to do better, helping women to not feel alone.” These steps in direction of progress remind Blake (and all of us) to count on extra from the designers we love. After all, each lady deserves to really feel lovely in no matter she needs to put on.
