Russian supermodel and fashion force Elena Perminova has caused jaws to drop with her latest modelling images.
A mere 60 days after giving birth to her third child, the 28-year-old starred in a nude photoshoot for Vogue Russia.
The images show the petite blond when she was eight months pregnant with her daughter Arina (now nine months).
Elena and her husband, the media tycoon Alexander Lebedev, are also parents to two sons Nikita (5) and Egor (3).
The leggy model, who routinely turns heads on the fashion circuit for her chic style, admitted that she took no breaks after Arina’s birth to regain her body.
"I started exercising just two weeks afterwards, even though I had a Caesarian. There were no breaks at weekends,” she told Vogue.
“Normally doctors say ‘yes’ to sport only three months after giving birth. But I started earlier, just two weeks afterwards, even though I had a Caesarian. The doctor allowed me to do it because I felt very well. Naturally, at first I was not exercising a lot, or there was a risk to breastfeeding.”
“And the main thing — I did not exercise my stomach. It is dangerous to do it right after birth," she added.
Elena went back into her workout routine by doing gentle floor exercises and using Instagram accounts for exercise ideas.
“You do not need to hire a celebrity coach,” she told the magazine. “It is enough to follow their account and watch a couple of videos. I like the account of Australian Instagram star Kayla Itsines (@kayla_itsines) She has a million followers. She is a distinguished fitness instructor and she posts exercises which you can do anywhere and without special equipment."
Elena eventually worked up to jogging for two hours each day with her husband and steered clear of processed, unhealthy foods.
"If I eat a lot of pastry and sweets, I will not put on weight but I can easily get cellulite or acne," she revealed. “This is why I am trying to eat the right food — simple homemade fare, for example, steamed fish with lemon juice."
