Pregnancy style has been tough to nail for decades, which in turn made successful celebrity maternity looks much more satisfying. Whenever a new starlet announces that they're expecting, it seems the designers fall right in line, working to commemorate the sartorial milestone. There was Beyonce's baby bump at the 2017 Grammy Awards, which Peter Dundas immortalized by way of two sequin-clad gowns. On a similarly glamorous note, Kate Hudson's sizzling silver-lining moment at the Venice Film Festival in 2003 — which dozens of style pointers can be drawn from, alone. And with trends from the last few decades making a comeback in every other category, there's no better time to look at the best looks over the years for inspiration.
Alternatively, the past holds just as many inspiring looks off the red carpet — take, for example, Chrissy Teigen's fragmented cream-colored ensemble, or Hilary Duff's coffee run uniform: a cornflower blue minidress and a sun hat. The archives have tons to choose from, and there are a smattering of "like" styles to help mothers get the look. Whether you're in your first or third trimester (or just have baby fever), you'll find flesh-flashing looks for those looking to bear more, and conservative looks that are fit for a royal.
All the pregnant-girl style inspo you'll ever need lies ahead, courtesy of your favorite A-listers.
Chrissy Teigen (2018)
This cream sweater-dress combo paired seamlessly with Teigen's oatmeal-hued boots, which she kicked around in for an afternoon in Soho. Get the same silhouette below:
Kim Kardashian West (2013)
This show-stopping frock was custom-architected by Givenchy for Kim's first-ever Met Gala. If you're inspired, you'll find a similar, more informal high-neck make below:
Hilary Duff (2018)
In September of 2018, Hilary sported a front-buttoning, powder-blue frock that was decidedly chic.
Ashley Graham (2019)
Ashley Graham's prowess in pregnancy dressing scored her a Vogue cover this past January. Here, at Apple's "The Morning Show" premier, her bodycon turtleneck-dress makes the case.
Kate Hudson (2003)
The Almost Famous starlet was not only the first to rock the pillow clutch, she was also the best-dressed celeb at the Venice Film Festival in 2003, wearing a baby bump-bearing halter, complete with feathers and sequins. Get a similar skirt below:
Kris Jenner (1995)
Hollywood's momager was a style icon long before her well-heeled daughters came into fame. This cozy look from her pregnancy with Kendall Jenner features a henley with a string of dainty buttons.
Beyonce Knowles (2017)
Queen B's famous low-cut red gown at the Grammys is the perfect inspo for a weekend ensemble while pregnant. Below, you'll find a certified "ASOS EDITION" piece that works during pregnancy and after:
Victoria Beckham (2011)
At the royal wedding in 2011, the Beckhams rolled out in ambitious, shadowy looks — Victoria, wearing a pair of platform Loubotins to elevate her cozy black minidress.
Sarah Jessica Parker (2002)
During her first pregnancy, Parker wore this blush empire line dress in 2002, which perfectly suited the pink carpet moment. For a similarly strap-y look, shop the front-tying sleeveless dress ahead:
Jessica Alba (2017)
In 2017, Jessica Alba wore this jumper to take her daughter to dance class, and the internet still is not over it. She still gets tons of use out of the one-step ensemble, long after her pregnancy. Grab your own ahead:
Angelina Jolie (2008)
Here, Jolie was heavily pregnant with twins, and still pulled off this powerful look so seamlessly. A staple maternity blazer is crucial to rounding out your maternity wardrobe. Luckily, Hatch makes a super similar style:
Meghan Markle (2019)
While the original tea-length Erdem coat that Markle wore to Commonwealth Day is sold out, there's a cropped jacket from the same designer that's heavily marked down right now (and shares the very same brand codes).
