Exclusive Feature: Life & Style Dishes On Celebrity Maternity Trends

There’s no doubt we’re in the midst of a Hollywood baby boom! Celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum and Halle Berry are just some of the famous moms bringing sexy back to maternity duds. We can’t get enough of their fabulous outfits, excentuating their gorgeous baby bumps.

In this special feature, Nicole Crane, Associate Style Editor at Life & Style Weekly, gives us the low-down on celebrity maternity trends. Who’s wearing the hippest baby bump gear? And how can we steal the style on a budget?

CBS: What are the current celebrity maternity trends?
L&S: “Celebs are definitely not trying to hide their baby bumps! It’s more about dressing for their new shape (and making it look even more amazing). We’re seeing silk dresses in fun prints and patterns (like Kourtney Kardashian’s mini dresses and Nicole Richie’s maxi dresses). Feminine touches like flirty ruffles and embellishments (like the silver dress Halle is wearing) are also big. Maternity clothing has gotten a lot more sophisticated — designers have been able to translate a lot of current trends like animal prints or plum hues onto maternity wear as well. Of course, expectant moms can’t go wrong with loose, airy dresses (like Halle). Those are always a classic for pregnant stars.”

CBS: Are more and more celebs wearing non-maternity clothes throughout their pregnancies these days?
L&S: “Actually, yes! Of the ladies Life & Style included in our story on stylish stars who are expecting, only a few are actually wearing maternity clothing. You see French Connection and Alice & Olivia on Kourtney, Michael Kors and Diesel on Heidi, BCBG and Dream Culture on Halle. None of these companies offer actual maternity clothing but stars, particularly these stars who are always on-trend, are discerning about the latest fashions and they really know how to dress for their bodies. For example, Halle has a beautiful collarbone and neckline — you’ll notice she often shows them off with scoop necks and halters. Plus, the latest trends are conveniently maternity friendly. Slouchy, loose-fitting tops over slim pants or leggings (like Kourtney) and boyfriend jeans and plaid button-downs (like Heidi). Expectant moms can get away with a lot more and are more comfortable this season wearing many items meant for average women.”

    Matt Damon On His “Testosterone Deficient” Home

    Matt Damon is gearing up for a pretty big milestone: His 3-year-old daughter Isabella’s first day of preschool!

    “I think I will get emotional when we take her,” the doting dad recently told People. “Her mom and I will probably be a big mess. She’s ready but I don’t know if I will be.”

    As for his youngest daughter, Matt reveals that 13-month-old Gia “is just ready to start talking and making sounds. It’s been really exciting and we are anxious to hear what she says.”

    As the only male in a house full of girls, the Bourne Identity star finds himself surrounded by “a lot of pink, a lot of princesses” – and it sounds as though he wouldn’t have it any other way.

    “I call it the ‘testosterone deficit.’ But I’m happy with that,” Matt says. “I love my girls and it’s lot of pink, a lot of princesses and a lot of fun.”
