The TV presenter shared the pic on Instagram on Tuesday, writing about her battle with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), as well as what it was like being naked in front of a room full of people for the shoot.
“Besides the normal ‘growing up as a women’ in today’s society, the effects of PCOS changed how I felt about my body, how I felt IN my body and how I hated it. But today I am grateful for what my body has taught me; sometimes the most powerful act in life is not to fight but to listen, [sic]” part of her post reads.
The pic in question sees Lalla channeling her dance background as she pulls of an intricate pose. About what it was like on set, Lalla says: “Being fully naked in front of a room full of magazine staff was ‘weird’ but this was my depiction of ‘letting go, being vulnerable but maintaining my power’.”
