Hot mama alert! Miranda Kerr surprised the audience at Thursday’s Balenciaga show at Paris Fashion Week, walking the runway just two months after giving birth. The 27-year-old Aussie, who welcomed son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom on Jan. 6, modeled in Balenciaga’s Paris show for the fourth year in a row, presenting to a crowd that included her proud husband, his mom Sonia and Vogue editor Anna Wintour (baby Flynn arrived in Paris with the family the day before). Kerr posted some backstage shots on her blog Thursday, sharing pictures of her look — a black draped dress with leather details — and a last-minute makeup touch-up. Tell us: What do you think of Kerr’s return to the runway? Kate Hogan

Good for her, she is taking her health seriously as usual and getting back into shape.

There is no reason for women who have had babies to continue to hold weight gained during pregnacies. I had 3 babies and lost my weight and worked out everyday seriously. I was back into my pre-pregnancy clothes in 6 weeks and felt great.

This ‘just had a baby’ excuse for being out of shape and not taking care of yourself is baloney. It’s just being lazy and not caring enough to do the work if you retain those pounds.

She’s a good role model…..and there are many out there in the public eye for those of us at home to use as an inspiration.

I normally never post comments, but Ann’s comment was just so offensive. Is it lazy if a woman has complications during a pregnancy and/or a birth and can’t lose the weight? How insensitive can you get? Not every woman has the same physical experience. I had a tremendous amount of back pain, which turned out to be a stress fracture at the base of my spine. It therefore took me months and months to get back into shape. Also, some babies have sleep schedules that, combined with new mom’s work schedules, make working out too difficult when they are already exhausted. My son is now 12 and I have to say, I’m seriously over judgmental moms. Be nice. Life’s too short for any other attitude.

What an inspiration she is. She looks wonderful. Good for her!


Anna, I am surprised that nobody has jumped on here and shredded your opinion to peices. I have to agree with you. My son is 18 months old and I am still sporting the ‘baby weight’. its my was of justifing my fattiness. Anyone who really wanted to lose it and was commited to losing the weight, could.

Some mom’s work for a living and would not trade any spare time with a new baby for exercising and getting into pre-baby shape in 6 weeks. Get real and focus on your baby!

Really? Try having a 10 lb. baby, and then hemmorage on and off for 2 months, and then tell me you feel like exercising. Get a grip on reality lady! Every womans body handles pregnancy different, including mine. So get off your high horse, and find something better to do then belittle other people for not being you.

First of all,she’s wearing a very draped dress,not something figure hugging or revealing so there’s no way knowing how her post-baby body looks or if she’s wearing any type of corset underneath that dress…Second she’s got a ton of money so she could hire a nutrionist/chef during her pregnancy and also a personal trainer after the birth of her son.I’m not trying to belittle her here,but saying that getting back into shape two months after having a baby is doable and realistic is simply not true in a real life situation!Good for you for managing it,but every woman is different,no need to lable others as lazy because they aren’t as lucky as you!

My mother who was an OB/GYN nurse always used to say it takes 9 mths to put the weight and it can take up to 9 mths to take it off.

Everybody is different in their experience and if it takes you 6 weeks to get back to normal, great, if it takes 9 mths to a year then that is great. Who cares what Anna or Ivyleaguer has to say, anyone who is that judgemental has other issues in their lives and are sad.

Wow Anna, how’s the air up there on that pedestal you have yourself propped up on?

Please, get over yourself.

Just because a woman doesn’t jump right back into a “serious” workout routine after having a baby doesn’t mean she’s lazy.

Having a baby is an overwhelming experience, and it takes some moms longer than others to adjust to their new life.

I don’t believe in using pregnancy or a new baby as an excuse to not take care of yourself, but it’s ridiculous to assume that if someone doesn’t lose her baby weight right away she’s not taking care of her health.

Maybe if you weren’t such a self-centered witch of a person, you’d be able to recognize that.

And P.S. – Miranda Kerr looks like a lifeless drone in this picture. I’m just saying.

My son is 8 months old now and I have am 10 lbs heavier than I was pre-baby. I would not trade my time with my son for the figure of Gisele. The discovery of something new every day with him is worth only going to the gym a couple of days a week instead of every day. God bless the moms that spend extra time with their little ones rather than obsessing what other people think about their post baby bod!!!!! Rock it moms!

Nicole on

Wow, Anna. Vain much?

As for Miranda, yes, she looks wonderful. But keep in mind that she was already naturally thin before she was pregnant and it didn’t appear she gained a lot of excess weight during her pregnancy. So the few extra pounds she did gain could have been easily lost. But also note that the dress she’s wearing drapes slightly in the front … and I bet anything it’s to conceal a post-baby pooch she still has. And although she looks a little tired, in my opinion, she does wear the clothing well and does look great.
