Pregnant celebrities seem to nail maternity fashion better than anybody else. Under the watchful eye of the paparazzi, famous ladies are never out of sight and have to look flawless at every turn. So from off-duty perfection to red carpet knockouts, here are the very best maternity looks from our favourite pregnant celebs to give all your expectant mothers some serious style inspo!
Pregnant ladies have been rocking it in the style stakes for years now – gone are the days of hiding your bump in smock dresses and big cardigans – it’s all about making the most of your growing belly. Dolce & Gabbana even sent pregnant ladies (and lots of babies) down the catwalk last season, so know that if you’re with child, then you are in style.
When it comes to off-duty pregnancy, Fearne Cotton is one of the best. Rocking amazing denim dungarees and on-trend animal-print block heels, Ms Cotton is one of the chicest casual maternity dressers of all time. Take your cue from her and go for the comfortable look – emphasize your bump but keep it relaxed in distressed denim and amazing trainers.
Some pregnant ladies like to glam it up a little more though – and when you’ve got a red carpet to rock, why not totally go for the glam. Celebs like Coco Rocha and Keira Knightley have stormed through their pregnancies in the most elegant of style. Choosing the world’s best designers to kit them out for premieres and award shows, we have seen some of the best red carpet looks of the last year come from expectant mothers.
And then there are those gals who like to take risks. Jaime King is definitely 2015’s biggest maternity style risk-taker. From sheer dresses to strapless frocks, Ms King hasn’t let her second pregnancy get in the way of her trademark quirky but always effortless style.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to check out our gallery of the best dressed bumps and pick your fave pregnant celebrity!

Frankie Bridge is just about ready to pop – but she's still looking incredible. We love the black and red outfit she wore for an evening out (and *that* bronde bob).
The Saturdays singer captioned her Instagram shot: 'Bit of red and black for last nights shenanigans… Still rocking the heels 38wks+ and counting…' Seriously impressive, Franks!
The reality star proves she's keeping up with her signature style whilst pregnant, as she opts for a statement white bodycon midi dress for a day trip, displaying her incredible curves and growing bump.
Rocking her trusty tan strappy heels and shades, the mum-to-be was certainly glowing…
Alanna Masterson has managed to pull off something pretty impressive – concealing her pregnancy until she posted *this* Instagram snap.
The Walking Dead actress – who plays Tara Chambler in the zombie show – captioned her photo: ‘Guess what…’ And doesn’t she look bloomin’ gorgeous?! We love her summery shirt dress and circular sunnies. Congrats, Alanna!
Until she posted this Instagram snap, Kim Kardashian had kept her baby bump largely under wraps. But now it's *officially* popped! She looks incredible in this figure-hugging white midi and a cream duster jacket.
The reality star captioned her photo: 'Good night baby.' Awww.
It's official! Kristin Cavallari's bump has popped. The Laguna Beach and The Hills star announced her third pregnancy in May before revealing in early July that she and husband Jay Cutler are having a little girl.
Mum-of-two Kristin – who already has sons Camden and Jaxon – always looks ah-mazing while expecting and this time is no exception. This boho-print midi perfects displays her blossoming figure and her accessories really nail the 70s trend. Do we even need to mention her glowing complexion?! So beaut.
At 8 months pregnant, Frankie Bridge pulls off a *very* impressive maternity look. The Saturdays singer tells fans: 'Meant business last night. Pulled on the leathers! I feel the towel on the floor adds a nice touch!'
Frankie was off out to celebrate her and husband Wayne's first wedding anniversary. We're pretty sure he must've been mega impressed with her sexy monochrome ensemble – she looks ah-mazing.
There’s no denying that Kim Kardashian’s favourite piece of maternity wear is a form-fitting midi dress – and this is no exception. However, a floaty cover-up gives her grey ensemble a more ethereal feel. Overall, it’s a pretty different look for Kimmy. We like.
Frankie Bridge knows *just* how to dress her baby bump. The Saturdays singer adds interest to her comfortable jeans and tee combo with a fringed kimono for an evening out with friends.
She captions this shot: ‘Ladies night.’ Ooh. And can we also point out her hair?! After years of keeping it short, it looks as though she may be growing it out…
Almost five months pregnant, the mum-to-be has stepped out in a tight white bodycon dress, showing off her famous curves to perfection. We love that Kim is embracing her pregnancy body the second time around…
Fearne Cotton has been nailing the pretty pregnancy vibe time and time again with her second pregnancy, and this gorgeous smock dress that she wore for an event at the Shard was no different. The expecting star picked a lacy white frock that just skimmed her bump, teaming with red leopard print shoes for a touch of her signature edgy rock chic style. Tres ladylike.
Ms King's amazing maternity style never seems to falter. This incredible red, strapless midi shows that no matter how pregnant she is, she'll always look flawless. Finishing the look off with a matching red lip and statement silver courts, she makes one of the best dressed ladies of 2015, pregnant or otherwise!
While a skintight unitard might not be every pregnant woman’s first port of call, it was clearly a comfy choice for Kim as she turned up to Heathrow airport for her flight home to LA. Breaking her no-heels maternity rule, the 34-year-old star topped off with sky high Manolo Blahnik sandals and a chic Balenciaga trench coat. We can still barely see that bump!
Rocking skinny turn-up jeans and a slouchy jumper, the Very.co.uk designer layered for spring with the most unlikely of maternity style fabrics – leather.

Ready for a glitzy night out in London, the mum-to-be opted for a daring bandeau mini dress with a lace overlay. Gorge.
