Temperley London uses pregnant models at LFW

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

London Fashion Week takes body diversity to a new level with expectant model mums

The catwalk may still be dominated by bodies that are much, much taller and much, much thinner than the average woman but it's possible that things may be moving in the right direction — albeit slowly.

The New York Fashion Week catwalk featured a range of models with disabilities last week and yesterday its British counterpart embraced another kind of female body.

The Temperley London AW15 show stood out on Sunday, not only for the elegant, feminine designs that are loved by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Nicole Kidman and Emma Watson, but for featuring not one but two pregnant models.

Jacquetta Wheeler wore a glamorous gold gown and Caroline Winberg modelled a tailored black jumpsuit, both emphasising their beautiful bumps.

OK so pregnant models may not look like ordinary pregnant women but it's still refreshing to see something a little different on the catwalk.

The Temperley London show also saw the comeback of Sophie Dahl, who has taken a long break from the catwalk to concentrate on her writing career. Proud hubby Jamie Cullum watched her from the front row as she modelled a long black velvet coat and sparkly trousers.
