Stylish Baby Bumps Rule the Red Carpet

Stylish Baby Bumps at Golden Globes

We need to take a moment to reflect on the goodness that was stylish pregnant women owning the red carpet last night at the Golden Globe Awards. Clearly, this isn’t the first time a baby bump has walked the carpet, but the women last night really stood out. They weren’t hiding their bumps and, instead, used the awards show as a coming out party for their growing bellies. We loved it!

Olivia Wilde. I mean, come.on. The first time expectant mom is literally glowing in this gorgeous, glittery, green Gucci Premiere gown. The form fitting silhouette puts her growing belly on full display – and in beautiful fashion. Wilde is due in early May, which means she’s approximately 24 weeks pregnant. And she looks like this. Let that sink in a minute while I go eat another German pastry.

Kerry Washington. I’m obsessed with Scandal (obviously), which means I’m obsessed with Kerry Washington. She is so beautiful and fun to watch at these events because, like her character Olivia Pope, she has amazing fashion sense. How can you argue with a woman who referred to her baby bump as “my little accessory tonight”? The pale silk Balenciaga gown elegantly drapes her figure and the layered look puts the emphasis on her growing bump.

Drew Barrymore. Okay, I’m not going to lie: this isn’t my favorite. It’s a bit schleppy, but she looks incredibly beautiful and she’s eight months pregnant! Remember how you felt at eight month pregnant and then imagine dressing your tired, swollen bum in a designer gown only to be photographed, viewed and judged by millions of people. Ya, we think she looks pretty damn good in this flowery Monique Lhuillier. Perhaps the floral gown is a nod to her Flower Beauty makeup line. The real question, though, is this: how can we crash the next post-awards show pizza party?

Who was your best dressed last night? What do you think of the baby bumps?

    I’m not really a fan of the dress Drew Barrymore was wearing either but she does look beautiful and does NOT look 8 months pregnant! I love the pic of her eating pizza in her big fancy dress! I love when celebs show us they are “real people’ too! :)

    I didn’t catch the whole awards show but I did catch Drew when she presented and I have to say I think the dress looked better when she was moving it in versus standing still. They all look fabulous!

      I haven’t seen the show yet (will watch it tonight), but I can totally see how it would look better in motion. It seems like the material is really light and airy and flowy.
