We’re at the end of another fab year at Bellyitch Blog. The team got together and voted on who the top ten most fashionable pregnant American celebrities were in 2014. Here they are:
1. Blake Lively
First time mom-to-be actress Blake Lively is doing an excellent job being playful with colors, textures and accessories. She mixes cute capes and necklaces and has perfect flowing hair. The Gossip Girl alum totally changed the maternity fashion game with her effervescent and seemingly effortless style. We are sure there is a stylist somewhere who deserves credit too. We think.
Stacy Keibler channeled BoHo Chic this first pregnancy by accenting her various casual looks with cute fedoras gladiator sandals and playful fringe purses. When going out and about, the former WWE wrestler sticks with a black palette but kept it playful with color. Her debut bump in a black cut out dress kept the gossip and fashion blogs talking and catapulted her to the top of the bump watch list this past summer.
3. Zoe Saldana
Currently pregnant with twins, Zoe Saldana carried off her best looks early in her pregnancy rocking a super cute black shirt dresses, slip dresses and bump hugging pencil-skirt length dresses while attending fashion week shows and promoting her various projects. We loved her styled look for the cover of Elle the best because it was so unexpectedly sexy and wild.
4. Carrie Underwood
Country singer Carrie Underwood was one of the hardest working pregnant celebrities this year. The American Idol winning singer-actress could be found in baby doll dresses, Grecian gowns, and mini dresses while hosting award shows, and performing at major concert events all across the country.
Ciara introduced us to her maternity style in a custom 20s style pin-striped suit this summer. She kept her fans and followers following her on Instagram on their toes with her cute ensembles and even cuter dance moves and mini-IG fashion shoots. There was no stopping this singer-songwriter who welcomed son Future recently and promptly dropped the weight and rocked Paris Fashion week.
6. Kelly Rowland
Singer and award-winning chart-topper Kelly Rowland kept it comfy in the bump-hugging jersey maxi-midi dresses she sported much this pregnancy. She also wasn’t afraid to experiment and change up her hairstyle often all pregnancy long going with a bold and different halo braid at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles.
7. Kourtney Kardashian
The eldest sister in the Kardashian klan, Kourtney, mixed it up a bunch this third pregnancy. She was trendy in overalls early in her pregnancy, played up stripes with a bold yellow shoppers bag by late second trimester. She showed lots of leg in mini mini dresses but also wore ringlets and maxi dresses at other times. It was all unexpected and no set pattern with Kourt.
8. Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington stayed low-profile with her pregnancy but once the word was out, we got to see her all award-season long, she sported different designers’ custom looks and never stopped mixing it up. She even worked in the crop top trend from last spring into her maternity red-carpet wardrobe. Yass, Kerry!
9. Molly Sims
Former model Molly Sims has been having the best styled year on red carpets this second pregnancy. From cropped and fishtails to glam and beaded, Sims has been a head turner these days. It’s definitely a step up or in a different direction than first round. And we also like how she has been very versatile with her hair styles doing Hollywood waves, sleek and straight and 80s flips at different events. Werk.
10. Savannah Guthrie
This TV journalist Savannah Guthrie bumped it up daily on TODAY and kept a big bright smile as an accessory . Although, she made knee-length dresses with side scrunching a staple, we love how she mixed it up with color, accent collars and necklaces, and threw in denim and other fabrics in her look every now and again. She was definitely a style maven for the professional preggers mama at the office.
Honorable Mention: Yandy Smith
We love any celebrity, pregnant or not, who experiments much with color and isn’t afraid to go with hot pink at one event then flip the switch and go with cobalt blue at another and that’s why we couldn’t leave out Love and Hip Hop‘s Yandy Smith to rep the reality TV show genre along with Kourt. This music industry manager and reality TV star also kept her hair game on point, sporting luscious long ringlets at promotional events for her various projects.
