Vogue Brazil celebrates the beauty of motherhood with breastfeeding cover

While most were focused on the controversial Paralympics spread in the recent September issue of Vogue Brazil, another controversy was taking place right on the cover of the magazine.

In a spread by photographer Zee Nunes, Brazilian fashion model (and mom of two) Carol Trentini was shown breastfeeding her newest son while wearing a loosely tied trench coat. Inside, a spread featured a then-pregnant Trentini posing with her other son in stunning couture. It’s one of the first times such daring (and beautiful) images of motherhood have been featured in the magazine.

While many new moms might argue this isn’t exactly an accurate depiction of what it’s like to be a new mom, the fact that the magazine is recognizing pregnancy and breastfeeding as something fashionable is a big step forward.
