The crowd awaited with breaths held. The lights twinkled with just the right amount of shine. The ramp was shushed and impregnated with all the forthcoming glory of the star. She will walk, she will gaze straight into your eyes. Her body a precious amalgamation of life, old and new. Her round, protruding belly, a happy universe, all on its own. She will redefine beauty. She will scrape your petty notions of “sexy.” She will dictate pompous celebration for the arrival of her new born. And she will do it in absolute, terrific, mind-boggling style.
Raise the bar, square your shoulders, all you moms-to-be because your baby bump deserves all the wardrobe love it can muster.
Let’s put our hands up for twelve of our favourite divas who made their baby bumps proud.
This dusky goddess put pretty to shame as she walked the ramp in a pop green and pink saree, with that cute tummy bump winking hello.
Sporting a frilled gowned beauty with an orange pout, Ginnifer Goodwin stole our hearts with her sheer simplicity. The emerald clutch = nods in approval.
We could talk about that gorgeous olive gown that was a cascade of green. But we’d rather talk about the glorious smile and the proud baby bump accompanying it.
Our favourite TV hostess begets sexiness. Just look at that copper shimmer gown and you’ll know what we are talking about. Deely, you give us the happy chills!
She is funny, quirky and absolutely nuts and that’s exactly why we adore her in How I Met Your Mother. Also, for that green sequined dress: Hallelujah moment*
We don’t think anyone could be any more sensually scandalous than Kerry Washington. Especially in that Roman mauve slit gown and those soft, baby curls.
She was her own sun as she walked the red carpet with a squeal worthy pastel yellow gown. We haven’t spotted a happier mommy-in-the-making!
If Shakespeare was alive, he’d probably ogle at Portman’s interpretation of the rose. Pastel pink, glittering diamonds and a ruby clutch = the angels are singing.
It’s not Jana that is happily wearing the gorgeous inky accoutre, rather it is the gown that is in love with her. And those perfectly tousled waves are high on glory.
Being every bit of the diva she is, Heidi rocked that all black Marchesa number straight up to Mars. Haven’t seen a prettier baby bump in a while, ladies.
She is the definition of timeless, and we are talking about looking like an immortal without the Philosopher’s Stone. Kate was absolutely glowing in a red gown that had us in fan-girl frenzy.
This stunner of a woman melted our fuzzy little hearts with her panache in a pink one shoulder gown. Her baby bump was the best part of the ramp walk, undoubtedly.
It is time to stand tall and proud, with new life beating within you. And for those moments when you feel like toppling the world over, grab that dress, put on some lipstick and strut out for a dinner date. Here are some beauty darlings to help you along.
