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

Just want to add: My doctor told me to start exercizing as soon as I felt ready and in those days everyone went right back to it without much thought…..
I felt ready within a couple of days, so guess I’m in the minority here, but I have always been active and felt the need to have that good healthy feeling again and with extra weight it just made me feel too heavy and not light on my feet.

Another point: My kids are all grown and out of the house long ago so don’t worry about me being a bad mother because I’m on the computer OK ?

Thank you to those who have accepted my apology for my first blunt post, I appreciate your kindness.

America does need to eat healthier and be more active so find what makes you smile and use that as your exercise. Mine is riding my horses, which I do every day and at age 60 I’m happy to say I’m a strong woman with perfect health and yes, I am so greatful for all of my many blessings ………but certainly not smug. If you knew me you would know that as all my friends do. But I do wish sincere good wishes to all mothers out there.

What does it matter what you look like after you had a child? Besides that, who gives a rats ass what someone thinks about you? I guess I never thought it was a race to get back to pre-baby body…it’s easier for some than others. People shouldn’t judge others or look down upon them just because they didn’t lose their baby weight w/in a certain amount of time. For those that are able to do it – good for you, that’s awesome. It’s not about being lazy, it’s called being a Full-Time mother & wife, having a Full-Time job, Full-Time school, Full-Time housework, etc. etc….it’s hard – if you are able to find the time and you actually do exercise, be proud that you get your heartrate up for the day.

America is seriously overweight and it has nothing to do with health problems keeping the weight on, it has to do with poor eating habits and a sedate lifestyle. Those of you who disagree with women like Anna should remember that she is passing on an example of healthy living to her children that we sorely need in this country, not to mention she apologized if she came across to harshly. We have got to start eating more vegetables and exersizing our bodies before we all develop heart disease. If we dont care enough to do it for ourselves then we should do it for our children. I have a patient who works out on a used schwinn stationary she bought online while her babies nap. Money has nothing to do with it. You can and should find a way to live healthier, thats all there is to it.

She models for a living folks — she’s just returning to work! And she looks fabulous!

You should all check out the other comments page related to this story. Almost all positive comments, none of this pointless arguing over a woman just returning to her job.

BTW Amen Dr. Emerson.

no one said that you have to lose the weight right away and no one is trying to hate on you people with broken backs and hemorraging issues. everyone is different. im glad that miranda is taking care of herself and wish her the best

Dr. Emerson on

“Why does it matter what someone looks like?” Holly, being 50 lbs. overweight puts serious strain on your skeletal system not to mention your at risk for heart disease, diabetes, and many other health problems. This is such a dangerous attitude to have. Please, listen this is not about looks, it is a matter of health. It is not funny to just keep indulging in fatty foods when it is killing us as a country. We must reduce our caloric intake and exersize our bodies 30 minutes at least 3 times a week. If we dont the rate of death by obesity related health problems will continue to rise and it is our children who will suffer the most.

I’ve been very interested in reading these comments, since I have a 6 and 1/2 month old (as well as an almost-4-year-old) and haven’t lost all of my weight. I appreciate that some people haven’t lost their weight for medical reasons, but I am comfortable admitting that in my case, it is a bit of laziness. But let’s not get too upset when someone feels that we can work harder to keep ourselves healthy. It’s true in most cases- definitely mine. I don’t expect to look like Miranda Kerr 2 months after delivering a child, but I know I can do better. And Anna, I have great respect for both your lifestyle and your apology. Cheers!

Wow!! Look at those great shoes! Not sure I love the cut of the dress but the idea is surely beautiful! I’m glad that the trend is sophisticated and flattering, rather than trashy and revealing now.
