Maternity Mondays- Red Carpet Maternity Wear

So it’s approaching that time of year when I start to think of beautiful dresses, more so than normal! Its coming up the Best of Vintage Manchester Awards 2013 organised by yours truly.

The date this year is 23rd October and this year is slightly different as I’ll be less than one month away from my due date! So I’ve been looking out how the A listers do red carpet maternity wear.

Angelina Jolie has gone straight in at my number one slot for looking classy whilst pregnant on the red carpet and she looks at nearly full term in the middle photo, so if I can look anything close to that good, I’ll be happy.

Two ladies I must mention too are Beyonce and Natalie Portman- both blooming at red carpet events…. Clearly the key to a red carpet maternity outfit is floor length maxi- elegant and covers any water retention in the ankles! Lots of draping to skim the bump and your more curvaceous figure rather than cling to it, this will also make the outfit more comfortable to wear too.

It’s a shame we cant see the shoes that any of these ladies are wearing, I’ll definitely be wearing flats though or perhaps a small wedge as I don’t need any extra height and my centre of balance will be at it wobbliest by that stage.

Have you ever done a red carpet event whilst heavily pregnant? What did you wear?
