You don't have to wear muumuus and oversize sweatshirts when you're pregnant. In fact, take a cue from your favorite celebrity -- there are tons of celebrity mamas-to-be with great fashion sense. Read on for how to pick up on your favorite pregnant mom's celebrity style.


Spring is in the air, and many Hollywood mamas-to-be, from Kristin Cavallari to Kourtney Kardashian, have been spotted around Tinseltown wearing one of the most comfortable and flattering dresses out there -- the maxi. It gathers in all the right places and flows over those areas we'd all like to conceal. And although these famous pregnant moms are likely paying designer prices for their dresses, the good news is that you can find your own equally cute but far more affordable frocks at Old Navy, which has a wide variety of maxi dresses and skirts.


Newly pregnant Kristin Cavallari might like flowing, but she also looks good in form-fitting. She's rockin' the cover of Glamoholic this month in a form-fitting red dress that hugs her adorable basketball bump, proving that you can wear sexy, figure-hugging frocks while preggo.

When new mom Hilary Duff was pregnant, she preferred to flaunt her bump in what she called "tight" dresses. Duff, decked out in a skin-tight lime-green sequined mini at the Beauty for Brain Cancer event last year, told US Magazine she thought it was better to wear tight things.

So how can you copy Kristin and Hilary's style? Liz Lange for Target has many fashionable and affordable finds, including this short-sleeve body contour dress. Best part? It's only $28!

A great pair of jeans

Pregnant or not, jeans are a staple in any woman's wardrobe. And because they are comfortable and also fashionable, skinny jeans have been a popular option for many celebrity moms-to-be, including Gisele when she was expecting her son, Benjamin, now 2. Although she buys clothes with a supermodel salary, you can look just as good whether you decide to pay designer prices or not.

Comfy chic

Jennifer Garner, who recently gave birth to her third child, Samuel, has displayed effortless and comfortable style during all of her pregnancies. She's worn everything from maxi dresses to khakis to peasant tops. To copy Jennifer's comfy-chic mom-to-be style, try the Gap's maternity line, which boasts everything from fun, pastel skinny jeans to adorable tie-front dresses to the striped super-soft crewneck tee, a customer favorite.

Don't forget the shoes

Shoes can make everything better, especially when you're pregnant and maybe not feeling your sexiest. Kristin Cavallari wears sassy Fornarina blue and white polka dot pumps in her cover shot for Glamoholic, but she also realizes that shoes should be affordable for the every woman. That's why she's working on her own shoe line that will debut in December. She tells Glamoholic, "The most important thing is for it to be affordable. I think it's important for girls to know that you don't have to spend $900 on a pair of shoes to look and feel sexy."
