Blake Lively’s Instagram is a pantheon of lovely things, and it became an even more beautiful space with her latest post. The actress shared a photograph of her breastfeeding yesterday with the punny caption ‘The PERKS of breastfeeding #YesThatsRiceInMyHair #BlondevsBronde #BrondeJamesBronde’. Lively, last month’s IMAGE cover star, is shooting her new movie All I See Is You in Bangkok at the moment, hence the dreamy tropical background.
Daughter James was out of shot, as were any glimpse of The Age of Adaline star’s nipple, which means this stunning photo probably won’t be taken down. The social network has been attracting nothing but controversy this past year when it comes to women’s breasts. While the company’s official policy regarding photos of breastfeeding says that the “vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies”, it has a habit of policing women’s posts about their breasts. The latest high-profile woman to feel the censorship was model Chrissy Teigen, whose topless photo from a shoot was soon deleted by the company. The future cookbook writer responded by joining the #FreeTheNipple movement with this cheeky photo.

Meanwhile, Blake Lively’s only note of controversial behaviour of late has been her christening her new hair colour ‘bronde’. For some people that’s a hashtag too far, while other people are wondering if they can carry off that many overlapping shades of caramel.
