NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Despite making her debut in 2007 as a blonde, model Arizona Muse was seemingly invisible until 2010 when she chopped off her hair to her now-infamous bob and nabbed the exclusive opening and closing spots at Prada that September. But something else changed during her two-year hiatus - Muse gave birth to her son Nikko.
Now a 23-year-old runway mainstay, Muse says her body is in better shape than she got pregnant. She told UK's Telegraph that she'd scrapped her favorite pair of jeans post-pregnancy because she thought they'd never fit her again.
"At first I was like, 'I'm going to be fat for ever!' I threw away so many clothes thinking that it would be so depressing having them sitting in my drawer when they're never going to fit me, which of course would fit me now. You just have to give your body time."
Good lord, do I know that feeling. Hell, I often (read: after a particularly heavy ice cream binge) feel like I'm never going to fit into things I wore last week. But of course, Arizona goes on, striking envy (and hope!) into each of us that hopes to one day birth a child and not have our innards torn to irreparable shreds. The circle of life, folks.
"I think my body was better after I had a child, actually ... I prefer my body now to what it was like before I had Nikko — although I exercise now and I didn't then. I remember my mom saying that after you have a baby you get really thin. So you gain all that weight and then you just lose it and keep losing it. You're breastfeeding and you're busy and you're tired … so that helped."
Also, the perfect genes. Talk about an advertisement for pregnancy, eh?
