9 Best Celebrity Maternity Fashion
Celebrities are held to an extremely high standard when it comes to fashion — some are simply flawless with their style, while others…not so much. It’s hard enough on a regular basis to get the look right each and every time, but when celebrities get pregnant and have to walk the red carpet featuring a growing belly and endure endless paparazzi, it’s undoubtedly hard. However, these nine celebrities rocked their pregnancy with the best style, from the streets to the red carpet, these ladies make being a mom-to-be look good!
9. Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman recently announced they were expecting their first child together. Despite it being Anne’s first pregnancy, she seems to know exactly what she’s doing when it comes to her maternity style. Her latest public appearance was at the L.A. Art Show’s 2016 opening night party benefiting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and she looked amazing in a little Marc Jacobs black patterned mini dress. The dress was loose fitted to accommodate her large belly, with a conservative t-shirt collar, but short enough still to look hot while wearing a pair of chunky, black strappy heels. With red carpet style like this, we can’t wait to see what she pulls off at the Oscars!
8. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde was one of few women who are able to maintain her long and slender figure with a growing pregnant belly. She’s not afraid to emphasize her tummy as a lot of her looks featured body-hugging dresses that snugged her in all the right places. Her chic street style was effortless with a lot of bundled up pea coats, laid back jeans and a baggy t-shirt. Many women are afraid to take risks while pregnant, avoid color or tight clothes for fear of drawing too much attention, but not Olivia! At the Golden Globes in 2014 she managed to rock a slim fit, floor length, emerald sparkling gown around her bulging belly, all the while still looking absolutely flawless.
7. Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton is a fashion icon who knows how to style a baby bump! Kate tends to lean more towards the conservative style, but she still manages to keep it looking chic and colorful. Sometimes an overly conservative style can end up looking frumpy, but she knows how to bring her royal fashion up to modern standards. She loves to cover up her bump in woolly warm pea coats, and just-above-the-knee dresses. Kate’s style is angelic, and she’s not afraid to wear color or patterns while pregnant which is an admirable quality for a mommy-to-be. The Dutchess of Cambridge might not be queen yet, but she’s definitely the queen of having royally beautiful maternity style!
6. Blake Lively
Blake Lively is the definition of being effortlessly beautiful and she managed to maintain this quality throughout her entire pregnancy. Somehow she looked better pregnant than most others do on a daily basis! Blake remained well hidden in the first couple months after her pregnancy announcement, but when she started to emerge on the streets of New York City with a larger than life pregnant belly, her on-the-go style was on point each and every time. On the streets she wore a lot of short coats that tied around her waist to cover her tummy, and she stayed true to her style by never shying away from a great pair of knee high heel boots. We aren’t all that surprised because Blake never misses a beat when it comes to fashion. If we wanted to get even more envious of this blonde bombshell, she told People magazine that she never even had to wear maternity clothes throughout her pregnancy. No wonder she looked so great!
5. Kristen Bell
Kristen explained her style in an interview with InStyle: “I found that the bigger that I get…the tighter I want my clothes to be. It seems strange, but you want to show off that you’re pregnant, not just chubby.” This explains why this petite star wasn’t afraid to take risks during her second pregnancy by wearing lots of tight and colorful sundresses. Her small stature allows her to pull it off, as the baggier look can look a little too frumpy on short women. Despite her claiming to lean toward tighter fitted maternity wear, Kristen knew when to flaunt it and when to cover it up. Our favorite pregnancy look was when she walked the red carpet at the Golden Globes in a long, breezy lavender gown with a high neckline embroidered with sparkling stones.
4. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie is a fashion icon in a lot of circles, so we weren’t surprised she was one of the celebrities with the best maternity style. Nicole has a boho-chic style that tends to take a lot of ques from hippy fashion so she loves to wear a lot of bangles, headbands and long flowing dresses with floral or geometric prints. Her petite stature and slim frame accentuates her pregnant belly, so she’s also caught wearing a lot of slim fitted tops and dresses. Nicole Richie rocked her pregnancy fashion so well that she’s designed her own line of maternity wear!
3. Jana Kramer
This 31-year-old country singer and songwriter who once upon a time starred on the popular series One Tree Hill gave birth to her first child only a few weeks ago! The first time mommy is new to motherhood, but she managed to upkeep a comfortable, yet chic maternity style all throughout her pregnancy. A quick scroll through her Instagram account shows she lived a pretty active lifestyle up until the final days of her pregnancy. She was showing quite a bit when she walked to red carpet for the CMA awards late last year and she looked flawless in a tight fitted, floor length shimmering dark blue gown. Jana really wanted to show off that bump! She admitted in an interview with E! that they key to a comfortable pregnancy: finding the perfect maternity pants!
2. Kristin Cavallari
This itty-bitty reality star turned fashion designer is now a mom to three children and with each pregnancy, Kristin gets more and more comfortable styling her baby bump. She rocks that famous pregnancy glow and maintains a slim and toned body throughout her nine months, so she’s able to keep her great style. Kristin stays true to her laid back California style with a lot of maxi dresses, or loose fitted tops over a pair of stylish jeans. Baby or not, Kristin has great style and that doesn’t change when she’s expecting!
1. Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity on our pregnancy radar with the absolute best maternity fashion. This supermodel is no stranger to great style, and despite her growing belly, she isn’t compromising comfort for fashion anytime soon. Her outfits are still carefully crafted with chic outfits, whether she’s running to the gym or hitting up the red carpet alongside her longtime beau John Legend. You’d never guess Chrissy is a first time mom because she looks totally comfortable and she knows exactly how to dress her changing body.
