We assume that modeling in a bikini is anxiety-inducing even to those that are in perfect shape, but the idea of strutting your stuff in a swimsuit while six months pregnant seems utterly horrifying to us. So we have to give major props to Raffaella Fico for doing just that during Milan Fashion Week.
The 24-year-old walked the runway for Pin Up Stars today wearing skimpy bikinis and sky-high heels — not exactly your typical maternity wear. We’re kind of amazed at how she’s able to balance in those shoes, look fabulous and do the sexy swimwear justice while so far along. (We suspect she’s been taking pregnancy style advice from fellow pregnant model Camila Alves.)
Even though Raffaella looked flawless, the Italian showgirl hasn’t had the easiest time since her baby news broke. Her rocky relationship with footballer Mario Balotelli, the father of the baby, culminated in dueling public statements from both parties and Mario’s demand of a paternity test. Well, at least the future mom can look forward to a baby and increased attention for her modeling skills. You go, girl!
