Once, early in my pregnancy, I bought an off-the-rack dress on sale at Pea in the Pod and thought I looked pretty good for a Hollywood event I was covering for work during awards season in Los Angeles. That is, I thought I looked good until I stood in reasonably close proximity to a pregnant Kerry Washington, who looked like a flawless goddess. Moral of the story: If you want to be a glam pregnant lady, it doesn't hurt to have unlimited funds and stylist resources to pull it off.
This week, she stepped out for her first post-announcement joint appearance with hubby Ryan Reynolds looking beyond enviably glam and gorgeous in a skin-tight pale yellow Gucci gown with a down-to-there neckline, as seen in Us Weekly. File under: Stars are not just like us.
Then of course there's Kate Middleton, who is also well known for her outfits' ability to immediately sell out retail store stock. This week, she too made her first public appearance since the palace was forced to announce her pregnancy early due to acute morning sickness. She wore an impeccable Alexander McQueen coat dress and coordinating fascinator, according to the Daily Mail. And she looked impossibly perfect, as always. If only McQueen was within the realm of affordability for the average pregnant woman — or any woman! — it's a safe bet half of us would be rocking that look this very weekend.
