For the cover of the September issue of Brazilian Vogue, model Caroline Trentini starred with her son, whom she is breastfeeding in the frame. A few more photos of the model with her eldest son are published on the pages of the issue - although in life young mothers look completely different from Trentini dressed in designer clothes and made up by Vogue makeup artists, it should be noted that the magazine addresses an important topic and promotes positive ideas about motherhood … The topic of public breastfeeding remains difficult: just a month ago, a photo of Brazilian political activist Manuela D'Avil, in which she was feeding her daughter, giving a speech in parliament, provoked heated discussions on Russian social networks.
Not all attempts to draw attention to complex glossy topics succeed: recently, the same Brazilian Vogue disgraced itself by publishing a very controversial advertising campaign for the Paralympic Games. Photos of famous models were edited so that they looked like Paralympians (the woman in the photo had an “amputated” hand, and a prosthetic leg was added to the man), and then they posted their common photo with real athletes. In this way the authors of the campaign wanted to illustrate the slogan “We are all Paralympians”, which reflects the principle of equality and sporting spirit.
