9 Times Blake Lively Was Our Pregnancy Dressing Hero

Here's how to crib her mamma-to-be style in real life

1. Empire Line

Blake’s style is a lesson in flattering a pregnant tum. A pretty low neck shows off your cleavage, while an empire line waist and flowing maxi skirt is forgiving where it counts.

2. Easy Jacket

Your favourite denim jacket is the perfect thing to throw on over a floaty dress.

3. Brights

As you grow a single bright hue is easier to pull off than hectic multi-coloured prints. The wrap effect of this Michael Kors dress is ultra-flattering.

4. Knotted jersey

Clever draping is your new best friend, and this knotted style by Bec and Bridge is super-flattering. Plus it will make you look very Blake-like (hurrah!)

5. Red jumpsuit

Blake stopped traffic in this bright red jumpsuit in Cannes. A draped style with a wide leg and an elasticated waist will rock you through event dressing in the early months.

6. Goddess gown

You are preggers! You are a miracle maker! Your body is that of a fertile goddess that is creating new life! Woo hoo! Show it off, and announce to the world your splendour. Now thank Blake for the inspiration.

7. Princess dress

Getting married with a bump? There’s never been a better time for a short-wasted bodice, and giant pouffy skirt. Not getting married? Better find a red rug, STAT.

8. Bustier dress

Eyes here! The sculptural properties of a properly made corset need no explanation.

9. Embellished mini

Early on, define your waist in a neat little mini dress. A sweet contrast ribbon detail draws the eye.
