Actress Olivia Wilde’s cover shoot for the September issue of Glamour includes a photo of her breastfeeding her baby Otis, in a diner, in couture. Note that Otis is not wearing a diaper, so really anything could happen to that Roberto Cavalli dress.
Wilde notes that there’s “usually a diaper involved,” but otherwise the photo-shoot felt completely natural to her:
It’s worth noting that it’s much easier to breastfeed if you’re a well-paid actress, but much harder for working moms in low-income jobs to get clean places to pump milk and the time off work to do it. Wilde also notes that she doesn’t have any apprehension about continuing her acting work while raising Otis:

Wilde’s glamour shot comes right smack in the middle of World Breastfeeding Week, and to celebrate the occasion we at TIME gathered together the 16 Top Breastfeeding Controversies.
