Blake Lively spent the weekend thinking about the timeline, which included a look back at her postpartum fashion. The Rhythm section The actress, mother of three, spoke openly about the battle over outfits after giving birth to their youngest daughter with Ryan Reynolds, Betty.
Blake posted a photo of her interview in January 2020 on Today’s show with Jimmy Fallon on Instagram, for which she put together an outfit with a Lanvin shirt and a Net-a-Porter dress. “Nobody had samples that matched me after giving birth,” she explained. “And so many clothes from the 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 had felt as safe then as I did now, a year later back. This body gave me a baby. And produced all of that baby’s food supply. What a wonderful miracle. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit clothes. How stupid is that in hindsight. “”
Blake praised Megababe founder Katie Sturino for her determination to “challenge brands, do better, and help women not feel alone”. These steps towards progress remind Blake (and all of us) to expect more from the designers we love. After all, every woman deserves to feel beautiful in whatever she wants to wear.
