Who says you have to play it style safe with your fashion choices while pregnant? Certainly not Ciara.
The 34-year-old who is currently pregnant with her third child took maternity styling to a whole new level as she arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
Opting to show-off rather than hide her bump, the ‘Goodies’ singer ramped up the sex appeal in a sheer, sparkling gown which was custom-created for her by British fashion house Ralph & Russo.
And oh baby she nailed it!
The shimmering one-shoulder gown, made from peek-a-boo mesh, skimmed effortlessly over a black corseted bodysuit and was slit to the thigh, revealing plenty of leg.
Ciara teamed her Grecian-gown with a matching headband, a messy bun and silver stiletto heels – and of course, a serious pregnancy glow.
To up the glowy vibes, Ciara opted to keep her make-up soft and natural, with a bronzed tint, which finished the elegant look to perfection.
Gently cradling her tummy, the star was joined on the grey carpet by husband Russell Wilson, who complimented her bold look in a velvet black tuxedo, with his bow tie undone.
Ciara announced she was expecting a child, her third, last month after sharing an image of her bump in a bikini captioned: ‘Number 3’.
The couple, who married in 2016, are also parents to two-year-old daughter Sienna Princess, while Ciara has a five-year-old son Future Zahir with her ex Future.
Dressing her bump has already caused a few issues as the star had to have her husband actually cut her out of her Tom Ford dress during Fashion Week.
The singer isn’t the only celebrity to tear up the maternity wear rule book and successfully skirt the line between sexy and sophisticated.
Back in September Ashley Graham rocked the red carpet in a skin-tight latex frock.
The plus-size model, who gave birth to her first child last month, wore the figure-hugging look to attend the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards in New York City.
The dress was by Vex Clothing, a California-based fetish wear label, and has a strong celebrity following, with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Beyonce having previously worn its skintight looks.
While pregnant with her son, Saint, Kim Kardashian also opted for more form-fitting maternity wear, which really highlighted her growing bump.
One such occasion was at the 2015 InStyle Awards, where the reality TV star wore body-skimming white cape dress, which clung to her curves.
Blake Lively also proved pregnancy doesn’t have to mean a complete red carpet cover up, often opting to show off her curves and cleavage in bodycon dresses during her three pregnancies.
After all you don’t lose your fashion credentials when you gain a bump.
