Laura Perlongo on Being Free in Her Skin at VMAs, Bare Bump and all

Mom-to-be Laura Perlongo sent tongues flapping when showed up to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night with her bare bump revealed through an open army green jacket.

The fiancé of Nev Schulman,the host of MTV’s Catish, said she has gotten postive response from women who believe it is okay for a pregnant woman to dress sexy.

“There is so much pressure on women to look a certain way. That ‘way’ is hard to achieve even when you’re not pregnant. Be sexy, but not too sexy. Be confident, but wear something that fits our current standard of acceptable,” Perlongo told the website attn. “When it came to choosing an outfit for last night, I wasn’t feeling the pregnancy options that were out there — they made me feel like a big blob or were tight and constricting. That is, they made me feel more self-conscious than just being myself and wearing my skin. And yeah, I wanted to rep my fellow pregnant ladies (s/o to the baby bumps).”

While the people on social media had a lot of mixed opinions about the look, Perlongo said attendees of the event were more accepting.



“It was overwhelmingly positive and supportive. Kim Kardashian loved it,” she added. “Other pregnant women and women with children came up to me with praise and congratulations throughout the night. Good vibes all around. I don’t regret the decision at all.”

Her fiancé loved it.

“Whoever says pregnant and sexy can’t go together, you’re wrong!” Schulman said of his bride-to-be. “Over the past eight months I’ve watched my fiancée carry and care for our child and transform into the magical goddess​ she is now and to me this is the most beautiful she has ever been. I couldn’t be more proud of and inspired by her.”
