Maia Ruth Lee, who is eight months pregnant, walked for Eckhaus Latta at New York Fashion Week
The image of a heavily pregnant woman walking down the runway at New York Fashion Week has opened up a fascinating discussion on representation and diversity. Maia Ruth Lee walked for the designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta on Saturday with her baby bump visible through a partially-unbuttoned cardigan dress. A photograph of Ms Lee, who is eight months pregnant, was posted on Instagram by Vogue Runway's Nicole Phelps.

Writing on Instagram, Ms Phelps highlighted how unusual it was to see a pregnant woman walk in a fashion show.

"I've been going to fashion shows for 21 years and I've seen a pregnant model on the runway exactly one other time. Something to think about," she wrote.
