Mommies-to-be can take style cues from these celebs who know how to dress their bumps both on and off the red carpet throughout 2014. Stars like Blake Lively and Zoe Saldana opted for covered-up floor-length looks in monochromatic colors that came off as chic rather than passé. Others, like Kerry Washington or Kristen Bell, upped the style ante showing that prints, patterns and even a little skin can be done with a budding bun.
Whether she’s dressed up and glamorous on the red carpet or out and about casual in New York City, Blake Lively wins the maternity style star for 2014.
Pregnant with her second child, the Duchess of Cambridge opts for chic and practical maternity style as only a Royal mommy-to-be could, wearing designs from Alexander McQueen and her favorite designer, Jenny Packham.
Saldana knew how to dress up her buns in the oven (yes, twins!) this year on the red carpet in classic silhouettes that stood out from designers like Narcisco Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Juan Carlos Obando, respectively.
Washington stunned in a hot pink Prada crop top at the SAG Awards in January before giving birth to her baby daughter in April. The Scandal star also dared to flaunt a lengthy leg in a strapless gown by Jason Wu at the Oscars and radiated in a custom navy Thakoon dress.
Kristen Bell took pregnancy prints to a whole new level, looking chic and on-trend here in a floral jumpsuit at the Judge premiere (R), and also in a rose-print Elizabeth and James dress for husband Dax Shepard’s new comedy, This Is Where I Leave You (L).
