The concept of maternity looks has evolved drastically over the years. For the longest time, being pregnant meant investing in a new wardrobe of leggings, stretchy waistlines, and large flowy dresses to cover a growing baby bump. For so long, concealing was the goal.
Dressing your growing baby bump can become a real dilemma when pregnant. As your belly grows, there are fewer clothing items from your wardrobe that you can wear. Oversized baggy dresses can be the obvious answer to the question “What can I wear?” but modern fashion offers many alternatives that can flatter a mom-to-be.
While celebs bring glitz and glam, and we love seeing who wore what, award shows are also the perfect opportunity for celebs to show us something we’ve never seen before (intentionally or not). Whether it’s a new couple spotted together for the first time, a never-before-seen engagement ring, or a baby bump reveal, red carpets always deliver excitement and sweet moments.
Of course, celebrities often have bigger clothing budgets and enlist the help of professional stylists. Still, we can use gorgeous celebrity outfits as inspiration to create our stylish maternity looks.
Seeing such famous names change the game’s rules is liberating – defying the idea that baby bumps must be covered and hidden. While everyone around you will always have their two cents to share, holding on to your sense of identity by maintaining a unique style is one of the most empowering ways to celebrate your body, especially while creating life.
Below is a round-up list of celebrities who have mastered the art of maternity looks.
