Elle Magazine Uses Photo of Breast Feeding Model Nicole Trunfio for Cover
Elle Magazine Australia has everyone talking with the latest cover of Nicole Trunfio breastfeeding her son, Zion.
The magazine, well known for high fashion, has everyone talking with the release of the cover. While model Trunfio is wearing Prada, her choice of accessories is something that has never been seen before on a high fashion magazine. Not Vogue. Not Elle. Not anywhere. A breast-feeding woman is not something that is the usual cover photo for a magazine, yet alone a fashion magazine. We have seen celebrities posing with their baby bumps on the cover of a magazine, but that is as far as the beauty of motherhood has ever been taken.
So that you are not disappointed if you head to the newsstands on Monday, you will see a fully dressed Nicole holding her naked son. The only people who can get the magazine with Nicole breastfeeding her son are subscribers. The photo of Trunfio breastfeeding her baby was captured by photographer Georges Antoni. The photo wasn’t planned and happened naturally. Elle’s editor in chief said,
“This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set. It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.”
For those wondering, yes Zion did go to the bathroom on the beautiful designer clothes.
Zion is Trunfio’s first child with muso fiancé and Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr.
Nicole Trunfio was the winner of the Australian television series Supermodel of Australia in 2002 and came second in the international version, Supermodel of the World. She is an international model working with top designers including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Christian Dior, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli and many more. Trunfio is interested in becoming an actress and has been studying in NYC for the past three years. Something tells us this magazine cover will definitely make Trunfio a household name.
