A model of motherhood?

Most of us spend alot of time (okay, maybe just me) thinking about how all of those celebrities and models manage to bounce back faster than you can say 'liposuction'. New York magazine has picked up on the trend as Russian model Natalia Vodianova is set prance on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week for the third time post-baby. Yes, she is 25 and has given birth three times and returned to the catwalk in record times.

Fast metabolism? Or the lure of millions being waved in your face to shrink down in the name of fashion?

Natalia Vodianova is so beautiful. In all the pictures I've seen of her, she looks very healthy. She appears to have a naturally tall lean-ish figure. She's not one of those scary skinny teeth showing through the cheeks jutting elbows models. I know a couple women with those tall lean frames and it never seemed to take them more than a month to bounce right back after childbirth. A lot of it is in the blessing/curse of the genes. I don't think it's a big deal for her.

Natalia Vodianova has said in a few interviews that she regrets going back on the runway so soon after her first pregnancy and felt that she was pushed into it by her agents and so forth.
