"Unless You're Gisele": Hollywoods Latest Catchphrase?Joanna Mazewski
Katy Perry has said it, Jessica Alba has just said it, and well, so has most of the world. Angelina Jolie might want to step aside, because “unless you’re Gisele,” to put it simply, you’re just not perfect.
Lots of Hollywood moms have moaned about never going back down to their pre-pregnancy weight or noticing some things hanging a little bit differently post-baby (ok, we won’t go there), but there’s one super mom who seemed to have no problems regaining her pre-pregnancy bod only weeks after giving birth: the freakishly perfect Gisele Bundchen.
The leggy Brazilian even had the nerve to tell the world that giving childbirth was “easy” and that she had enough energy to make pancakes the next morning. Now, before you begin throwing darts at a board with her face on it (because your 23-hour child birthing experience was easy too), let’s not forget that Gisele is a yoga and healthy lifestyle enthusiast and made it through her tub birth with her first son Benjamin through mediation.
Ok, that still isn’t an explanation as to why Gisele is perhaps one of the planet’s rare ideals (not now, Gwyneth), but at least we’re not the only ones who think so.
There’s something very organic about the world’s richest supermodel and seeing her tackle motherhood with such comfort and ease makes us wonder, how does she do it? She doesn’t write lifestyle newsletters that rhyme with poop, tell us how to drink skinny margaritas or tweet endless pictures of her baby for publicity. She simply is who she is.
Sure, Gisele is perhaps the sexiest woman on the planet, but take away the make up, the wardrobe, the perfectly tousled hair and….. ok, we give up.
Jessica Alba was recently quoted saying she’s noticed how her body has changed after pregnancy, and that no matter how hard she’s tried, zipping up her pants is just a bit different now than it was before. If Jessica is having a hard time with her post-baby bod, how does that give us hope of ever regaining that perfect body back?
(Well, unless you’re Gisele, right?)
Skinny margarita anyone?
