The 10 Most Stylish Celeb Mommies-to-Be
We asked a fashion expert to dissect the outfits of Hollywood’s expecting moms to see why these celebs are so spot on with their maternity style.
It’s hard to maintain your signature style when your belly (and face it – your entire body!) feels like it’s growing larger by the minute. But some celebrity mommies-to-be are proving women can work their new curves and still look great. BettyConfidential asked fashion expert Jené Luciani (who is happily expecting herself!) to weigh in on our picks for the 10 most stylish expecting celebs. She told us why their outfits work so well for them, plus gave us some styling tips for those with a baby on the way:
1. Gisele Bundchen
Gisele looks runway ready even when she’s running errands! It’s clear that being pregnant with hubby Tom Brady’s baby hasn’t put a damper on her wardrobe. “Gisele’s supermodel style is effortless,” says Jené of the model mommy, who’s due in December. “She proves that expecting moms don’t necessarily have to wear maternity clothes. The leggings and stretchy knits she’s seen wearing here are perfect for an expanding belly, yet so on trend. The flat boots are super chic, yet comfortable for carrying around that extra weight.”
2. Padma Lakshmi
“Padma is one red-hot momma!” says Jené, and we couldn’t agree more. The Top Chef star has been looking radiant, and this red carpet ensemble is no exception. “She is celebrating her impending motherhood by showing off her best assets,” says Jené. “Instead of hiding her bigger bust line, she’s making it work to her advantage. The cascading waistline flows perfectly over her baby bump and the halter top draws the eye up to her face … so everyone can see that mom-to-be glow!”
Padma’s also letting her hair down – of course she always has a gorgeous mane, but one of the nice side effects of pregnancy for most women is thicker, shinier hair. Make the most of this little bonus!
3. Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney has been all smiles throughout her pregnancy, but we bet she’s ecstatic now that her due date is only a month away. She’s just about made it, looking fabulous the whole time. “Kourtney’s smart to stick to form-fitting clothes instead of hiding her figure with huge empire waists,” says Jené. “For this ensemble, the black from head to toe creates a nice long, lean line, accented by the perfectly proportioned vest.”
4. Adriana Lima
Not only is Adriana Lima one of the hottest women on the planet, she knows exactly what to wear to maintain her sexy image during pregnancy. Jené thinks Adriana looks “angelic” in this chiffon number. “The neutral color complements her olive complexion and the hemline hits in the perfect spot. Plus, this sleeveless dress shows off her perfectly toned arms and legs.”
