  • Red Carpet Maternity Chic- Natalie Portman in Givenchy Haute Couture

    I’ll Have What She’s Having: Perfect styling for a pregnant figure

    All eyes are on what pregnant Natalie Portman will wear to tonight’s Oscars.

    But, let’s take a pregnant pause as to what the Oscar-nominated acress wore last night to the 26th Film Independent Spirit Awards.

    Why?

    Because it is perfect maternity chic styling for a dressy night out.

    Natalie Portman wore an empire-cut, short, full-skirted dress in beige silk chiffon and pleated cotton poplin incrusted with acid yellow lace from Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci outfit.

    SHOP: Maternity Style

    The empire-cut dress is one of the best, if not THE best, style to flatter a pregnant figure- whether it be speifically a maternity dress or a just a lasrger size.The contrasting belt below the bustline, creates the illusion of shape, and the full skirt glides over the belly without pulling to look too large or bulk to add girth. The yellow and nude color blocking of Natalie’s Givenchy dress is far more flattering than a heavy, solid color.

    Her nude pumps in a classic, yet shapely heel, create a longer flattering leg line.

    HINT: If your legs are looking a bit less than tone when pregnant, try super sheer pantyhose.
