Just a year ago, Blake Lively had just given birth to her third baby and was doing press for her new movie, The Rhythm Section.
In addition to the throw-backs, Blake took a moment to address her post-baby body insecurities, including the difficulty she found searching for clothes.
Oh, and it should be mentioned Blake does not work with a stylist.
“I put together a Lanvin shirt and dress from Net-A-Porter to make this pretty outfit,” she began, addressing her look on Fallon in January 2020.
“Because no one had samples that fit me after giving birth. And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many.”
“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 felt as confident then as I do now, a year later looking back. That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply.”
“What a beautiful miracle,” she continued.
“But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect?”
Lively then went on to promote her friend Katie Sturino who she mentions is “actively challenging brands to do better.”
Sturino is an “entrepreneur, social media influencer, body-positivity advocate, and animal activist, Sturino possesses an ethos that positively impacts women’s lives through her Instagram and blog, The12ishStyle.com.”
She then went on to found her own company, Megababe, Sturino then founded her own company, a beauty line of nontoxic products that provide solutions for women to feel more comfortable in their own skin. Follow her good work here!
