8-Month Pregnant Model Breaks Stereotypes, Walks the Ramp at New York Fashion Week
Maia Ruth Lee recently walked the ramp at the ongoing New York Fashion Week for designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta for their spring 2018 show. She did so while being eight months pregnant.
How the times have changed! And this is not the first time we have had women walking the runway - remember Carol Gracias and Kareena Kapoor Khan? While Carol had walked the runway at the last year's Lakme Fashion Week, Kareena followed suit by traipsing down the ramp looking like an absolute goddess for Anita Dongre and Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Coming back to the Maia Ruth Lee, the model wore a Lavender Cardigan-Dress which she unbuttoned at the middle to show off her baby bump. Nichole Phelps, Director at Vogue Runaway shared the picture on Instagram and wrote, "I’ve been going to fashion shows for 21 years and I’ve seen a pregnant model on the runway exactly one other time. Something to think about."
These pictures have been liked over 17,000 times at the Social Media Networks. Now that's something called Change!
