Along with all the happiness that surrounds the announcement of a future baby, fashion lovers get the added excitement of checking out what the mom-to-be wears. Keira Knightley is the latest celebrity with baby news to share (Vogue U.K. has reported her rep’s officially confirmed the announcement, FYI), and, as such, it officially becomes time to start studying her outfit picks with a new lens.
For the British Independent Film Awards last week, she picked this sparkly Simone Rocha dress. Her bump’s currently too small to dress in the super-curvy fashion Blake Lively favors, but she doesn’t often wear body-con numbers, so I’ll never expect that from her. With the extra volume (and feathers) at the sides of this pick, attention is diverted from her midsection, something a lot of pregnant women tend to want in earlier months when the baby weight gain isn’t a completely obvious pregnant tummy.
For casual errands in November, she skipped skinny jeans in favor of roomy overalls (totally a trend—pregnant Jessica Biel just did it too!). As a non-pregnant person who’s worn overalls, I completely understand why both ladies would pick them for their just-revealed, tiny tummies: They offer some extra space and don’t cut in the way a traditional pair of jeans would at the waistband area.
