Throughout pregnancy, your body changes so quickly and in ways you might not expect, so it’s often tough to know what to wear. Pregnant celebrities, however, have a leg up, relying on a team of stylists to look red carpet ready. So what have we learnt from seeing the likes of Anne Hathaway and Chanel Iman out and about? For starters, maternity style doesn’t have to be about shapeless smocks and stretch pants, as illustrated by these famous faces.
Anne Hathaway is expecting her second child, and she has got her pregnancy style down to a tee by now. She went all out for the premiere of her new Amazon show Modern Love, wearing an asymmetric Oscar de la Renta top and matching white trousers. The ruffles demonstrate how pregnancy dressing doesn’t just have to be about hiding your bump, but can emphasize it as well.
Ashley Graham is expecting her first child with husband Justin Ervin, and she has been open about her pregnancy on Instagram, covering everything from workouts to stretch marks. The model has also been giving a masterclass in dressing a growing bump – like at this recent premiere, where she donned a sleek turtleneck dress with strappy heels and an elegant updo.
Not only is Jenna Dewan expecting her second child (with partner Steve Kazee), but she has also been out and about promoting her new book, Gracefully You. For an event, she wore a ruffled black dress from the label By Johnny in a look that her stylist Brad Goreski referred to as a “LBD – Little Bump Dress”.
Chanel Iman is another model who is currently expecting, and she’s not one to let pregnancy get in the way of serving looks. During the recent New York Fashion Week, she wore a suit by Haider Ackermann, a brand that is well-known for its deconstructed tailoring, and therefore easy to fit around a growing bump.
Christina Milian is another celebrity who proves you don’t have to be scared of skintight outfits when pregnant. She went to an event in September wearing a form-fitting pink dress, illustrating that long sleeves and high necks really are the maternity style right now.
Petra Nemcova is a supermodel, so it’s no surprise that she knows how to make pregnancy work for her. She’s well-known for her philanthropy and environmentalism, and she makes sure her fashion choices reflect her values. Take this outfit she wore for a United Nations event: a pale pink Amur dress (a brand that focuses on using sustainable materials) with a clutch made from wood, vegan shoes, and ethically sourced Chopard jewelry.
