Nicole Trunfio‘s latest cover for ELLE Australia is so special, as it sees the model breastfeeding her son, Zion, for the magical shot.
“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,” ELLE Australia‘s editor-in-chief, Justine Cullen, explained. “It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.”
ELLE‘s website also reveals that Zion, who is Nicole’s first child with musician Gary Clark Jr., answered “nature’s call” on a mix of local and international designer clothes worn by the Perth-born model during the shoot. (more…)

Stateside, Americans are debating whether Harriet Tubman or Rosa Parks should be on the $20 bill and across the pond, folks are weighing Alexander McQueen as an option for their own £20 note. The Bank of England is asking the public to help them choose visual artists “of historic significance” as contenders for the face of the bill.
Included in the category of visual artists are fashion designers, which is why some are thinking that McQueen could be a good fit for the honor – and it looks like he is already an early favorite in the running. So far, painter and satirist William Hogarth and actor Richard Attenborough are each favored to win at 4-1, but McQueen is hot on their tails with 8-1 odds.
As fashion people, we are obviously biased, but McQueen’s legacy in British fashion is undeniable. He was truly an innovator and created some stunning, groundbreaking pieces, which in themselves are works of art. McQueen’s house still lives on under the direction of Sarah Burton, who helped usher the McQueen name into the history books by creating Duchess Kate Middleton’s wedding gown. The house of McQueen is already a part of British history – might as well make it official and put its founder on some money.
