Androgynous Maternity as rocked by Ciara, Beyonce & Kim Kardashian

When Ciara showed up to the 2014 MusicCares Gala in a navy Lanvin mens style pinstripe suit, many scrubbed their chins, cocked their heads and went, “hmmmm.”   Not all were convinced at how fashion forward the look was for maternity wear.

Little did they know she was only channeling the spirit of her fore-mothers who rocked Androgynous maternity before her.

Behold:

Ciara has been wearing androgynous looks this pregnancy like Beyonce & Kim Kardashian did before her.

Meanwhile, the first openly gay woman athlete to sign a Nike modeling contract, WNBA player Brittney Griner was signed to model men’s apparel.
And as an ESPN.com story about the deal noted: 

Androgynous models are coveted in high-end fashion, but the trend toward gender-neutral clothing has only just begun to reach the sports world, with NBA stars Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade blurring the lines in their tight jeans and fitted sweaters. No sports apparel company has taken it a step further and expressly targeted the gender-fluid crowd — and whether Nike is willing to ride the edge with Griner remains to be seen. “We can’t get into specifics,” says Nike spokesman Brian Strong, “but it’s safe to say we jumped at the opportunity to work with her because she breaks the mold.

The former Baylor women’s player and current Phoenix Mercury star won the ESPY award for best female athlete in 2011 and rocked the red carpet in men’s wear the following two years.

The era of androgyny has been a thing for a while now, but is mos def an “in” thing again.

Ciara’s TLC “CrazySexyCool” Tribute- Baby Bump Style

R&B Pop songstress and mom-to-be Ciara recently took to her Instagram account to share a “Crazy. Sexy. Cool” photo tribute to fellow Atlanta natives TLC. The top-selling girl group’s chart topping hit sophomore album featured members T-Boz, the late Left Eye and Chill above their alter ego personalities. [Edited to add: Another site Madame Noire contends this was a tribute to Digable Planet’s “Cool Like That” song because CiCi captions the photos lyrics from the chorus form that song “I’m cool like that. I ‘m Peace Like That, I Love Like That, I’m Out.” Err. That works too! ha!]

She nailed it!

The “Body Party” singer and her fiance hip hop star Future are expecting their first child later this year.

She announced the pregnancy officially this January on the ABC daytime panel talk show The View after much being shrouded in internet buzz and speculation that she was preggers.

It is her first child. He has children from previous relationships.

The people of New Orleans have been incredibly welcoming and supportive since I was Drafted by the Pels last June, and some of the most special people I have met are those who work at smoothie King Center. These are the folks who make our games possible, creating the perfect environment for our fans and everyone involved in the organization. Unfortunately, many of them are still recovering from long term challenges created by Katrina, and now face the economic impact of the postponement of games because of the virus. My mother has always set an example for me about being respectful for others and being grateful for what we have, and so today I am pledging to cover the salaries for all of those Smoothie King Center workers for the next 30 days. This is a small way for me to express my support and appreciation for these wonderful people who have been so great to me and my teammates and hopefully we can all join together to relieve some of the stress and hardship caused by this national health crisis. This is an incredibly resilient city full of some of the most resilient people, but sometimes providing a little extra assistance can make things a little easier for the community.

In lieu of the usual award show Red Carpet run down, we’re just showcasing the stunning baby bumps on display last night at the Academy Awards show held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Recording artist and model Ciara went to the Vanity Fair after party in an almost bare, sheer, see-through mesh Grecian crystal adorned custom Ralph & Russo one-shoulder gown revealing her silhouette and toned legs in a strategically placed slit and accompanying draping, highlighted with silver strappy heels and bronze make up.

She looked stunning.

Ciara is expecting her second child with husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. She is mom to almost 3-year old daughter Sienna Princess and 5 1/2 year old son Future Zuhair from a previous relationship, hip hop performer Future.

Meanwhile, Superstore star America Ferrera attended the actual awards ceremony and also went with another form of regal wear. Hers was a wine-colored custom Alberta Ferretii limited edition empire waist gown with full cap sleeves, accessorized with a custom Jennifer Behr brass halo.

It was a cute look for her.

The Ugly Betty alum and her husband Ryan Piers Williams are expecting their second child. They are parents to 1  1/2 year old son Sebastian Piers.

Gorge!
