Pregnancy Style Icons

By Rebecca & Dominique

Long gone are the days when pregnancy meant hiding your growing bump under the sartorial equivalent of a tent for 9 long months. A growing number of style-conscious mamas-to-be are leading the way in maternity-cool, proving that you can wear whatever you want during pregnancy. It can be the perfect time to try out things you wouldn’t normally wear (hello bump-flaunting body-con dresses inspired by Beyoncé), and if you don’t want to stray too far from your normal style, all you need to do is size up.

If you’re expecting, we’ve complied a list of our current favourite pregnancy style icons – from fashion blogger Susie Lau, to supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Scroll down for some inspiration…

Susie Lau

One of the world’s most respected fashion bloggers, Susie Lau – aka Susie Bubble – became a mama for the first time this year with the arrival of her daughter Nico. Known for love of technicolour prints, texture and tailoring, her pregnancy wardrobe didn’t depart much from her usual style. 



Queen Bey very nearly broke the Internet when she recently announced that she is expecting twins. Inspired by classic works of art, (including 15th-century Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus) the image she posted has become the most liked photo on Instagram of all time. She has since shared a series of pregnancy style snaps, looking as glamorous as ever. With no traditional maternity-wear in sight (and very much in the ‘show the bump off camp’) it’s been fabulous form-fitting gowns all the way for Mrs Carter.     


Eva Chen

Instagram’s Head of Fashion Partnerships Eva Chen welcomed her second baby, son Tao, earlier this year. Known for her accessories obsession (she is famous for her taxicab bag and shoe shots), her pregnancy wardrobe focused on comfy staples teamed with statement-making pieces. Easy-to-wear jeans and jumpers provided the perfect backdrop for fluffy aviator jackets, oversized slouchy parkas and long-line coats in colour-pop hues. 


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently announced that she is expecting her first baby with fiancé Jason Statham. From off-duty jeans, heeled boots and flowing trench coats, to red carpet gowns, tailored perfectly to her growing bump, the supermodel’s pregnancy wardrobe is a short step from her usual trademark effortlessly chic style.
