“Just because you’re a mom, you don’t lose your sense of style,” she said. “You don’t lose your love of fashion. I’m big right now. I want to feel good.”

She walked in a pair of skinnies. “Who would have thought even five, 10 years ago that red skinny jeans would be something a mom eight months pregnant would be wearing down a runway,” Goodwin said.

Iman, who has her own cosmetics and accessories company, was recruited for the event by an old friend and fellow mom, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, the fashion director at Lincoln Center and an IMG consultant.

Balancing work life and home life while still looking and feeling good “isn’t always easy,” Winston Wolkoff said. “It was important to make this different than what Fashion Week is usually about.”

So what does Iman wear to the bank, the playground, a night out with hubby David Bowie?

“I may start with a suit in the morning, then a legging,” she said. “The important thing is we need a wardrobe that can change from playground to office to a night out. We still care about fashion.”
