For the September issue of Vogue, the gorgeous and talented Olivia Wilde shared her newest role: mother.
Draped in high-end threads and jewels, she proudly shares her most precious accessory, her son Otis. Unlike some of the other maternity photoshoots we’ve seen (perfectly posed, rigid emotion, etc), Wilde shares a very intimate look at her naturing role as a mother – while breastfeeding her son. As a mom-to-be who is interested in designer fashion and nurturing aspects of motherhood, I found this cover issue the best of the season.
Her new role may be the most important, long-term that she’s taken on, but her acting career won’t be put on hold. As she told Glamour: “My mom is such a badass working mother. That inspired me when I was pregnant. I wasn’t going to sacrifice myself because I was becoming a mother.”
Perhaps her most memorable shot from the entire shoot is the one of her breastfeeding Otis. For moms-to-be across the world, the stigma that follows breastfeeding has been a huge area of concern, and even advocation. When it came to the breastfeeding shot, Wilde found it more natural than anything else.
