In case you missed our live-tweets of the supermodel reunion of sorts on today’s Oprah, Stephanie Seymour, Beverly Johnson, Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova, and Cheryl Tiegs all stopped by the Harpo studios to look back at their life-long careers in front of the lens. But while Porizkova was, per usual, a boon of wonderful one-liners, we were most intrigued by Seymour’s response to those oh-so-close photos of her and her son Peter in St. Barth’s.
In her explanation to Oprah, Seymour alludes to a different set of photos that were taken of her shortly before these and right after she felt she’d “gained a lot of weight.” Seymour says the photos made her feel so bad she spent two days indoors. Now, the photos in question were apparently taken after her son cajoled her out of her room and onto the beach, where he was utilizing his French skills and wooing abilities to cheer her up.
It’s a sweet story, but we’re not going to lie: we’re a bit dismayed by the idea that someone as beautiful as Stephanie Seymour would be laid up by a set of unflattering photos.
WATCH: (The photo bit starts around 3:35.)
