All of the Most Iconic Pregnancy Looks at the Met Gala Over the Years

Countless pregnant stars have walked the red carpet over the years, but only a few can say they graced the Met Gala‘s iconic steps while expecting — and we’re taking a look at some of the most memorable ensembles worn by famous mamas-to-be since the gala’s inception.

As one of the most prestigious fashion events of the year and an occasion celebrities covet an exclusive invitation to, the Met Gala has become a uniquely iconic opportunity to announce a pregnancy (Sophie Turner and Kerry Washington, we’re looking at you) and an equally epic way to flaunt the gorgeous curves and feminine power that come along with carrying a child.

Cardi B rocked one of the most memorable pregnancy looks in recent history at the 2018 gala, a Vatican-inspired Moschino gown with an ornate headdress to match. And who could forget Kim Kardashian‘s highly talked-about Givenchy look at her first gala in 2013 — the SKIMS founder fondly looks back at the “sick” floral gown that took on its own life as a meme.

Then there was the jaw-dropping statue rendering of Rihanna created by Vogue ahead of the 2022 Met Gala. Although the then-heavily pregnant singer did not attend that year’s event, the digital tribute broke the internet — even Rihanna herself tweeted, “Shut down the met in marble! what’s more gilded than that? Y’all bad for this one.”

With the 2023 event honoring late fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld underway, we’re taking a look at the top pregnancy fashion moments at the Met Gala over the years.
