What's your celebrity maternity style?
Gone are the days when pregnant celebrities would hide out for nine months, emerging only after they had lost all their baby weight. Today's celebrities flaunt their changing bodies with stylish fashions and trend-setting looks. Do you love the trendy style of actress Jessica Alba or are you more of a funky rocker chic like Gwen Stefani? Whether you are trendy, bohemian, funky or sexy (or a little of each), read on to find out how you can copy your favorite celebrity style.
Angelina JolieTrend-setting star Angelina Jolie always manages to look stylish whether she is toting around her four kids, flying her personal jet or with Brad Pitt on her arm at a movie premiere. Now pregnant with twins, Jolie has gone from disguising her tummy in a brown, flowing Hermes dress to announcing her pregnancy in a black bump-hugging Western Costume dress. She has since gone bohemian wearing flowing Maxi Dresses with a sexy v-neckline to show off her amazing cleavage. "The maxi dress is an effortless piece, and Angelina has worn all our dresses with a natural ease. I feel that the dress accentuates her femininity," designer Gerard Darel told InStyle magazine.
To get her bohemian style, look for long, flowing dresses with a sexy C-neckline or sexy spaghetti straps. Pregnant Angelina Jolie was recently seen in this Michelle Jonas Long Hippie Dress ($391), however you can get her same look for less in this Long Voile Patio Dress ($88) from Mimi Maternity. Pair the maxi dress with black ballet flats or strappy sandals and a hot pair of aviator glasses (lip plumping gloss optional) to top off your Angelina-inspired look.
Jessica AlbaActress Jessica Alba takes her maternity fashion cues straight from the runway. From her plum Marchesa dress at the Academy Awards to her off-the-shoulder Gold Hawk Silk Tunic dress, she is always dressing her bump in the latest trends.
To get Jessica's hip casual look, pair black leggings with a French terry hoodie and a long scarf knotted around your neck (Alba likes the Sir Alistair Raj scarves). Her footwear consists of everything from flip flops to purple Chuck Taylor Low Rise All-Star shoes. "I have too many pairs of Converse sneakers -- they come in all the fun colors and go with everything," Jessica told InStyle magazine. "I'll wear Christian Louboutins with five-inch heels if Iím dressing up, but I prefer to be comfortable." Although many of her red-carpet dresses are custom-made, you can wear the same dress she wore to her baby shower -- the Isabella Oliver black Audrey Dress in Caviar Black.
Gwen StefaniFashionista Gwen Stefani is one rockin' mama who loves to take fashion risks with her own unique style. As evidenced by her designer label, L.A.M.B., she loves bold colors and funky prints, as well as clothes that are feminine with a masculine twist.
If Gwen Stefani is your fashion muse, don't be afraid to mix a feminine sweater dress with chunky black buckled boots. Bold prints, such as the leopard-printed L.A.M.B. Baby Jane Beaded dress that Gwen was recently spotted in, should be a staple in your wardrobe. Pair a printed tunic top with dark skinny jeans and high heels or black leggings for a purely-Gwen look. The No Doubt singer loves to take feminine dresses, such as this Diane von Furstenberg Ora Printed Silk Maxi Dress that she was photographed in, and add a rocker twist to it by wearing her hair up in funky braids. Gwen, who calls being pregnant "fun and consuming and romantic" loves to be pregnant and it shows.
Halle BerryDubbed one of the "9 Hottest Pregnant Women, Ever" by Maxim magazine, Halle Berry managed to keep her sexy style right up through her third trimester (yes, you are allowed to be jealous). "It's the perfect time to be pregnant because everything in fashion is loose-fitting with an empire waist. "Fashion is on my side," the 41-year-old actress told InStyle magazine.
To copy pregnant Halle Berry's flirty fashions, keep your look ultra-feminine by wearing tops that highlight your cleavage, such as the Chiarakruza Tess Maternity Top that she was recently wearing. Up the sex-appeal in your look by pairing thigh-high black boots with a bump-hugging black dress and loose, wavy hair. Halle, who wore the Temperley London Papillon Mini Dress, knows that showing a little leg is always turns a few heads. Sometimes the sexiest look is a hip pair of jeans, such as the J Brand maternity jeans she was spotted in, paired with a flirty top.
