Pregnancy is a major milestone in a woman’s life. But, it also comes with major diet and lifestyle changes as well. Earlier, pregnant women kept their pregnancy as discreet as possible. They were made to wear loose, unflattering clothing in order to hide their growing bump. The lack of celebrity icons to look up to in those days didn’t help matters much. However, in recent times, more and more women, especially celebrities, have broken these shackles to enjoy their pregnancy to its fullest. Even Bollywood fashionistas and sporting icons were not too far when it came to embracing this change. Celebrities like Kareena Kapoor, Soha Ali Khan, Sania Mirza, and Neha Dhupia set new benchmarks when it came to pregnancy fashion. Let us take a look at their pregnancy journey and their style statements:
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Without a doubt, this young Begum of Pataudi is considered a trendsetter not only in terms of pregnancy fashion but also for working expectant mothers. She wore the best of the designer clothes, honored her work commitments, and also walked the ramp with elan. And, all this whilst proudly displaying her baby bump to the world.
Off the ramps too, Kareena lived up to her image of a style diva. Be it long kaftans, flowing dresses, or well-fitted kurtas, she rocked each outfit.
What Kareena is to Bollywood, Sania is to sports. She’s someone who never shied away from being herself whether it came to silencing her critics or having an unconventional marriage. While on one hand, she made one of the cutest pregnancy announcements. On the other hand, she shared her amazing pregnancy journey with her fans.
When it came to fashionable outfits, she was always on point. From fitted pants, traditional anarkalis to flowing outfits, she wore them all with the finesse of a sportswoman. And, just like her stunning aces on the tennis court, she stunned everyone with her pregnancy style too.
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan is another icon who became an instant inspiration for many soon-to-be mothers. Humble yet sweet is what comes to our mind when we think of her. She has also promoted good health by sharing her pregnancy diet and swears by yoga that helped her lose that baby fat.
Even with a fashionable sis-in-law like Kareena Kapoor around, this delicate beauty completely held her own when it came to pregnancy fashion. Soha kept her pregnancy outfits simple yet very elegant. She too experimented with kurtas and gowns, could also fit into jeans, making us all jealous. But it was her unmissable pregnancy glow which probably stole the show for us!
Another addition to the long, growing list of new-mommy style divas is the lovable Neha Dhupia. She has an unconventional way of doing things, but with a dash of a surprise element. Take the case of her sudden marriage announcement or the news of her pregnancy soon after, this former Miss India won our hearts each time.
This ‘no-filtered’ nature of Neha extended to her pregnancy fashion too. Her sartorial choices with her maternity wear are easy to replicate by nearly any expectant mother. Be it her glamorous outfit on the fashion ramp or her easy-breezy work wear, Neha could effortlessly slip into any avatar.
We hope that these fashionistas and their style statements have inspired you to upgrade your maternity wardrobe too. When you are living one of the most beautiful phases of your life, then why neglect the way you look? So, go ahead and put your best foot forward with some celebrity-inspired outfits. And yes, don’t forget to flaunt your bump proudly like a badge of honor while you are at it! Way to go, ladies!
