Olivia Wilde is poses with son Otis for Glamour’s September issue, allowing the style publication to shoot photos of her breastfeeding the infant.
World-famous photographer Patrick Demarchelier shot the duo in a diner. Whether or not the setting was giving an intentional nod to recent nursing in public controversy (and the fact that baby is just eating) remains unknown. However, it already has a lot of people talking.
Wilde on being shot while breastfeeding:
“Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breast-feeding is the most natural thing. I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing—that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breast-feeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved.”
