Rihanna is the one most likely to alter our conceptions of what constitutes appropriate attire for pregnant women. Since making her public pregnancy announcement in New York City with boyfriend A$AP Rocky at the end of January, the Fenty founder hasn’t missed a step when it comes to her fashion game. She has boldly exposed her belly in designs such as lace-up tops, sleek and sexy catsuits, and barely-there sequin fringe designs.
She expressed her happiness to People by saying, “I’m loving not having to worry about covering up my belly.” “If I wake up feeling a little on the plump side, I don’t care! It’s a boy or a girl!” In honour of Rihanna, we’re taking a look back at all of the most incredibly stylish celebrity moms who helped put pregnancy couture on the map.
From royal moms-to-be like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle to red carpet mainstays like Ciara and Kim Kardashian, we’re taking a look at all of these celebrity moms who helped put pregnancy couture on the map. Check out the following slideshow for a look at 30 of the most stylish pregnant outfits ever worn by celebrities.
The decision that Demi Moore made to pose without clothing on the cover of the 1991 issue of Vanity Fair, in which she revealed that she was expecting a child, had a significant and long-lasting effect on the fashion industry as a whole. Despite the fact that she was not wearing much of… well, anything. Because of this, other pregnant women were able to take ownership of their sexuality and the fashion choices they made while they were pregnant.
Jada Pinkett Smith
At the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, Jada Pinkett Smith wore a translucent brown dress that quite literally exposed her developing baby belly. This garment garnered a lot of attention and made people take notice of her. The presenter of Red Table Talk, who was carrying her first child with husband Will Smith at the time, coupled the slinky garment with a beautiful velvet coat to complete the look.
Sarah Jessica Parker
When Sarah Jessica Parker attended the launch of the fifth season of Sex and the City in 2002, she wore a really stylish pink Narcisco Rodriguez gown. She did her Sex and the City character proud with her appearance. The empire waist of the satin dress that was mid-length was perfect for flaunting a burgeoning baby bulge since it created the illusion of a smaller waist.
Look no farther than Kate Hudson at the 2003 Venice Film Festival for evidence that you can still turn heads when pregnant in the greatest manner imaginable. If you ever wanted confirmation of this, all you have to do is look at her. While flaunting her thing in a silver Chanel Haute Couture getup embellished with feathers, beading, and the biggest accessory of all—her bump—the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star had jaws dropping all over the place.
J.Lo maintained a carefree and easygoing demeanour during her pregnancy with twins Emme and Maximilian in 2007, and she seemed to be in excellent physical shape as a result.
Max Azria was the mastermind of Angelina Jolie’s stunningly gorgeous pregnancy look that she debuted at Cannes around the year 2008 (approximately). In addition to the olive green colour being the ideal shade to suit the actress’s eye colour, the dress had an empire waist, which kept the form looking appealing, and a deep V-neckline, which provided more oomph to the ensemble.
Kim Kardashian is the only person who could have made her pregnancy into a picture opportunity at the Met Gala. Instead of covering up her bump with extra fabric in order to attend the event, the reality star drew attention to her shifting form by wearing a skintight dress designed by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy that featured a colourful floral motif.
At the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2016, Anne Hathaway, who had just won an Academy Award, seized on the moment by wearing a striking black-and-gold Naeem Khan masterpiece. “Radiant” would be an understatement to describe the luminous actress’s appearance.
When Natalie was pregnant with her second child in 2017, she emulated Jackie O. in a monochromatic yellow Prada gown with minimalistic beading at the sleeves and hem. This dress was Natalie’s way of proving that she was more than just a one-trick pregnancy fashion pony. The outfit, which had an empire waist and three-quarter-length sleeves, kept the actress (and her tummy) covered up to a significant extent while yet looking quite trendy.
Gain a Grammy? Check. Glitzy gown? Check. A rapidly expanding stomach? That qualifies as a check. Beyoncé almost completely dominated the 2017 award show by wearing a sequin-covered crimson Peter Dundas design with a square-cut neckline for the red carpet when she was pregnant. Following her turn as a fertility goddess during a performance of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” the singer best known for her hit “Crazy in Love” changed into a lavishly beaded gold tunic for the remainder of the set.
Cardi B made her debut appearance at the Met Gala in 2018 wearing an elaborately adorned Moschino by Jeremy Scott gown. The dress was a perfect fit for her growing baby bump. Not only did the figure-hugging, bejewelled creation wonderfully encapsulate the spirit of the exhibition titled “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” but it also did an excellent job of drawing attention to the rapper’s expanding belly.
She was glowing in the designer gown she chose for the event, and it wasn’t just the champagne sequins that were making her shine. The Dior spokeswoman was pregnant while attending the premiere of her new film, Don’t Look Up, and it was clear that pregnancy agreed with her. She was glowing in the designer gown she chose for the event.
