Lara Stone Brings Today’s Quote

lara-stone-naked-unretouched01-e1415987874154 - Lara Stone Brings Today's Quote

On how becoming a mother put things in perspective:

“You have to sit there and really think about it: ‘Oh, I grew this little person’s fingernails in my tummy.’ After that, do you really give a s*** about arm flab? Because I don’t.”

… says new mom Lara in System Magazine, next to her nude and unretouched photo spread.

I wish there were more videos of her around there, I enjoy watching her. She seems honest.

I do not find her attractive face wise, sorry but I agree with her quote.

I’m sure she doesn’t care about your opinion, you don’t have to apologize.

Hannah Louisa

I’m not apologizing, it’s just something I do out of respect. I know she doesn’t care because she doesn’t know me OBVIOUSLY.

Dont worry, some people can’t understand basics ways of being polite. They can’t feel empathy. Our world is generally not as wise as it pretends to be.

except you literally wrote “i’m sorry”. wat.

Hannah Louisa

I’m sorry doesn’t necessarily imply that I’ apologizing. It’s just a way of stating my opinion without being too bluntly. I’m not from an English speaking country, maybe it’s always meant as an apology in English language. Dunno.

I have heard that from other people who have had babies and I think that’s so cool! Our bodies are capable of amazing things 🙂

I get the idea and good for her, but I’m just kind of sick of this “Becoming a mother changed my life”, “Now I have the right perspective on life, after becoming a mother”, or even more annoyingly some people are like “As a mother I’m a qualified expert on everything”… I mean being a mother is great and all I’d think, but can you be a woman of wisdom without it for once.

i don’t get the feeling lara is implying any of the things you stated.

I dont know Lara or what shes hiding behind these words. I know only one thing after i seen this picture of her i thought to my self how beautifull she looks .and i guess being a famous model in this industry is not easy to pose like this without no photoshop .while any other models witch i adore like ale or adriana .straight after they had a baby the go crazy : gym every day .diets .other crap .oll a baby need is a mother to hold and cuddle and make it feel like there is nothing else in… Read more »

I think you’re imagining things. She’s only saying that realizing what her body has achieved put unhealthy obsessions with its appearance into perspective.
How you can get sick of women feeling more relaxed and liberated after giving birth is beyond me. “She thinks she’s a qualified expert on everything” It’s really quite a stretch, maybe reflect on your own projections.

You misread my comment, never said she said that… I’m not sick of women changing for the better after becoming a mother, obviously. It’s just kind of annoying to read these kinds of quotes all the time (not on this website but in tabloids, interviews and hearing things like this irl in general) when you’d think you can be a wholesome person even if you’re not a mother.

I kind of agree with you. I feel like in the US, the whole “OMG I created a life in my womb and now I am suddenly a completely new person filled with love and light”- attitude is going a bit too far. Yes, I am a mother and currently 8 months pregnant and I love my children more than anything, but this didn’t change my whole personality. True, I see my body in a more relaxed way, since I cannot change the things the pregnancies did to it (like now, I have a really ugly bulging vein in my… Read more »

i kind of see what you’re saying.
I just wish these women would be a body-positive BEFORE they put on weight instead of afterwards.
But maybe they only have the empathy and acceptance once they’ve had their bodies changed.
I guess better late than not at all…

I get what she’s saying, unfortunately realizing that you’ve grown a tiny human being inside of you doesn’t seem as impactful as it used to be for many people, otherwise ther wouldn’t be so many women (including those who don’t have jobs tied to their appearance) who don’t just worry about how they look after a baby, but are even scared of that, and there also wouldn’t be so many folks placing huge pressure on women’s post baby bodies. I think Lara’s body looks great unretouched, and her breast have a beautiful shape. But i don’t like the pics, and… Read more »

What? I had no idea she was a plus size model. I mean even the well known plus size models don’t look plus size, they just don’t look as gaunt and sharp as regular size models. But lara didn’t even look that kind of plus size either! Apart from her chest which has always been beautifully voluptuous, the rest of her is actually quite ..Slim? I was just thinking about how perfect her proportions are for a model….at best she seemed a little bit in between the regular size and plus size models. Which is literally the perfect body shape… Read more »

Yes, she has never been considered plus-size. She has just been viewed as a tad bigger than usual models because of her breasts.

Respect! I appreciate this girl. This is honestly, body love, and acceptance. I think she is even more gorgeous because of it!

YES! She has gained new respect from me for doing it. And the fact the photos aren’t artistic doesn’t bother me bc imo the message of them was just “look: I’m a woman and a model, my body and/or skin are not perfect, and IT’S OK”

LOL love that quote! i still worry about that stuff after three kids, but i just take for granted that i am good at making babies cause it was very easy for me. a lot easier than not having arm flab tbh

No, it’s not the same thing as your college example, it’s the opposite. College is a school, motherhood is part of “life’s school” if you want to put it that way… It would be idiotic to question someone’s expertise or ph.d if that person has indeed graduated to that. Why is it so hard to understand that I’m not accusing Lara of anything? My thoughts were just a general remarks about how the media and how people in irl are raving about motherhood (and have been for the longest time, it’s natural) but that I’d like to see some other… Read more »
