Nicole Trunfio is a West Australian who has modelled for Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Christian Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, Valentino and Victoria’s Secret to name a few. Following the birth of her son Zion (with Gary Clarke Jnr), Nicole was on the cover of Elle Australia, breastfeeding. It was apparently an unexpected idea, when the Elle team saw how beautiful the moment was off camera, they decided to move her and Zion towards the set to capture the image.
The Elle Australia cover was sent out to subscribers while newsstands received a photograph of Nicole holding Zion (not feeding). Nicole later said she wished that the breastfeeding image was released to newsstands and so do we. In any case, Nicole has bravely reflected on this in media interviews, to highlight how normal and natural breastfeeding a baby in public really is.
“There’s nothing worse than, as a mother, doing something that’s so necessary, like feeding your child, and feeling like somebody could have an opinion about it or somebody’s looking at you the wrong way.”
