What To Wear When You’re Expecting A Baby…And A Gold Statue, Too

-------

The Golden Globes are this Sunday and the Oscars will be here in a flash, which means the red-carpet speculation has begun in earnest at Style.com’s offices. From what we’ve witnessed at our pre-fall appointments, the A-lister every designer is angling to dress seems to be Best Actress nom—and expectant mom—Natalie Portman. How else to account for the return of the empire waist, as seen on Valentino‘s long and lacy black gown (left)? We can’t say for certain that Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Connelly, or Penélope Cruz will be showing off their baby bumps in the coming weeks, but if they do, body-skimming halter gowns from Derek Lam and Reem Acra are two flattering and comfortable options. On the other hand, a bit of flash is always welcome, and Peter Dundas’ neo-hippie number for Emilio Pucci would look great on a wild child with child—Kate Hudson, we’re talking to you.

Click for a slideshow, and let us know how you think expectant celebs should accessorize their bumps on the red carpet.

    Not one of these dresses would work for a pregnant woman. They are all too structured and draw the eye to the wrong place. As some one who has just had a baby and who teaches stylists this is a synopsis of what not to do.

    apart from the empire line dresses there is realy nothing here that i think would suit a bump. if something is going to be draped, it needs to be draped around the form its designed for, a bump is not just there to fill extra space it needs to be considered and cared for.

    That Naeem Khan isn’t formal enough, and that Donna Karan looks complicated. Being pregnant is complicated enough. Love the Pucci, hope someone wears that this awards season, it looks so fun!
