And we say, YES. This isn’t a gratuitous photo, it’s motherhood, and it’s been taken by photographer Paolo Roversi as a gift for Vodianova’s boyfriend and son Maxim’s father, Antoine Arnault. It’s family, it’s love, it’s natural, it’s beautiful.
Below her photo she wrote,
Happy birthday baby from Paolo, Maxim and I. Love you @antoinearnault
She’s not the first public woman to publish photos of herself breastfeeding her child. Women from Jerry Hall to super Gisele to singer Pink have all done the same, and we say, more power to ’em. Click through to see a few below.

Adele’s signature lashes garnish the singer’s Fendi Peekaboo iteration.
In conjunction with the May opening of Fendi’s London latest (on New Bond Street if you’re in the area,) the Italian fashion house announced its collaboration with 9 iconic women, asking the celebs to personalize a Peekaboo. Tracey Emin, Gwyneth Paltrow, Adele, Jerry Hall, Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Kate Adie, Naomie Harris, and Tanya Ling all took part.
Starting today, the bags will be on view at the new London location. They’ll also be on auction online, with all proceeds going to Kids Company. Bids start at GBP 15k.

Nope, this is not a joke. FishLove is an actual activist group that gets "well-known media personalities" to take a stand against over-fishing. In the case of model Lizzy Jagger, this means posing naked with a dead tuna. Her mom, Jerry Hall, even joins her with some dead fish in another photo.
The daughter of Mick Jagger and Hall has modeled for Lancome, Thierry Mugler and Tommy Hilfiger. But Lizzy Jagger’s latest gig has her nude, straddling a dead fish in various poses that are almost erotic positions. But at least this fish was caught sustainably, right?
FishLove is most certainly a worthy cause, as their facts page explains. But these PETA-esque tactics are just so tired. I have nothing against posing naked, but this fish-cuddle in the realm of ridiculous. Do people really care about environmentalism and animal cruelty so little that the only way to get them to pay attention is by showing celebrities’ bits?

There is no question that Mick Jagger has romanced a lot of women in his day. (Well, "romanced" might not be the right word.) But a new biography Mick: The Wild Life And Mad Genius Of Jagger by Christopher Anderson plumbs the depths of this rock star’s insatiable libido, revealing the details of how he stole former French First Lady Carla Bruni away from Eric Clapton and also got shot down by none other than Angelina Jolie.
Jagger met Carla Bruni, then a 23-year-old model and heiress, in 1990 while on the Urban Jungle tour. But she wasn’t just a pretty woman following the tour: she was on the arm of Jagger’s friend Eric Clapton. And Clapton was in love, Mick claims. But that didn’t stop Jagger and Bruni from carrying on a "clandestine affair," as Clapton put it. It crushed Clapton and did not please Jagger’s main lady, Jerry Hall, either. Poor Hall learned exactly what looking the other way entailed when Jagger flew off to Thailand with Bruni while Hall was laying in the hospital with their newborn daughter. For her part, Bruni promised her boyfriend in a note (which was found by Hall), "I’ll be your mistress forever."
Their affair didn’t quite turn out to last "forever": Carla Bruni notably moved on to both publisher Jean-Paul Enthoven and his son (!), the philosopher Raphael Enthoven, and later to the French President Nicolas Sarkozy. And Mick moved on, too: Mick reports that the singer fell head over heels for Angelina Jolie while she played the part of a stripper in a Rolling Stones video.
Mick — like every other dude on the planet — was turned on by Angelina’s dark side, saying "She scares me a little. I like that." Jagger pursued her ardently and yet she felt mostly apathetic; they carried on together for years while she was dating other men and starring in increasingly high-profile movie roles. One wonders if they never quite gelled as a couple because Jolie was not content to merely be a rock star’s girlfriend but to be an A-lister in her own right.
The revelations in Mick may not be news to Rolling Stones-philes. But for anyone who needs the gaps filled in their rock star history, Mick would seem to do the trick.
Chalk it up to “new nostalgia” or supermodels making a comeback, but the fashion industry’s MILF fixation is in full effect. Earlier this week, Madonna made headlines yet again thanks to a steamy new Steven Klein-photographed W spread that features the Material Mom in a lavish, light-filled Brazilian home, flanked by a handful of gorgeous twenty-something, half-naked Brazilian boys. In a biblically confusing series of events, adding fuel to the press-storm is the fact that one of the male models in question, Jesus Luz, has become Madonna’s real life companion.
Add to the list of MILFs stealing the fashion spotlight: Danish supermodel and BlackBook favorite Helena Christensen, whose sexy editorial spread with Gossip Girl’s own Ed Westwick is featured in Harper’s Bazaar’s March issue. At 40, Christensen is far from past her prime, but she’s still old enough to be 21-year-old Westwick’s mother.
Last but not least is fashion icon Jerry Hall’s new campaign for Chanel. The blond (and, at 52 years old, still a) bombshell is pictured in bed with male model-of-the-moment Baptiste Giabiconi. Of his choice of Hall for the campaign, Karl Lagerfeld explains: “Oscar Wilde said, ‘I like men who have a future, and women who have a past.’ It is this whole idea of seduction that is summarized here that appeals to me. One of a very young man fascinated and attracted by what a woman does: her wardrobe, her perfume, her movements, her allure, etc.” The cougar is making a comeback — surely, thanks in large part to a recent, recession-induced disinterest in vanity and artificial beauty. The elegant older woman has finally resurfaced as the new icon of allure.
