How does she do it?
The 31-year-old talked with “Entertainment Tonight” about appearing in the magazine months after giving birth to her first daughter, saying she’s proud of what the issue represents in terms of body diversity for women.
“You start to realize that it’s not about the number on the scale, it’s about how you project yourself, it’s those suits that you wear,” she said. “I think this issue does more for people than anyone will ever know. We might look back and look at shows that I love ― like, I love the show ‘Girls’ for example, and I love that Lena Dunham goes on the show and she just does whatever, and she’s like, ‘This is my body, take it or leave it’ ― and I think every little bit of that kind of thing helps. Every time some little girl gets to look in this issue, and see so many different body types and [women] embracing themselves, that’s really important.”
“I would’ve shot this thing nine months pregnant, I swear,” she added. “When I was that pregnant, I was so, so incredibly happy ― and at that point you’re just like, ‘This is it, take it or leave it!’”
Before heading out Thursday, Teigen shared a snapshot of her getting ready process behind the scenes.
