Slick’s decision to continue with her runway walk despite being in labour is understandable.
She became an instant celebrity thanks to her eye-popping outfit at the show.
Not only did she have a very big bump, but she looked incredibly fit in the extremely skimpy outfit that include straps and pasties.
Woods’ Instagram account exploded after the event – she now has almost 700K followers.
And she has been heavily searched online after she won the night on the Fenty catwalk.

Rihanna asked her muse to model for her lingerie collection after declaring she wants to empower women through her designs.
‘Women should be wearing lingerie for their d**n selves,’ Rihanna told Vogue in an interview. ‘I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light. You don’t have to stick to one personality with lingerie; it’s fun to play around.
‘You can be cute and playful one week and a black widow next week. You can take risks with lingerie. I want people to wear Savage x Fenty and think, ‘I’m a bad b****. I want women to own their beauty.’
