When I think of stylish sophistication, subtle sexiness, and pregnancy, I immediately think of Amy Adams. Incredibly talented, beautiful, and expecting her first baby (with fiance Darren Le Gallo) this spring, Amy is one stylish expectant mother. Although I love her as her endearing characters in Enchanted and Julie & Julia and was extremely impressed by her Oscar nominated role in Doubt, I simply cannot stop raving about her pregnancy wardrobe. From a casual day around town to the Golden Globes, Amy looks radiant, maintaining her signature classic style throughout her pregnancy.
For casual wear, Amy has stayed stylish and comfortable throughout her pregnancy. In the earlier months, she was spotted on a shopping trip in a cute plaid top and boot-cut jean. Her top is perfect for a casual outing. Its loose shape is comfortable while not overwhelming her frame, and the trendy plaid pattern creates visual interest. This top combined with a pair of fitted boot-cut jeans is the perfect combination, as the structure of the jeans is balanced out by the loose-fitting top. The boot-cut jean tends to be the most universally flattering jean, since it balances out the entire shape of the leg, and a dark wash denim is incredibly figure flattering.
If you are just beginning to show and are not quite ready for a maternity jean, grab a Bellaband to wear over the waist of your pre-pregnancy jeans, and you will be comfortable and fashionable. Amy was spotted in another flattering and comfortable daytime outfit in early January, combining black leggings with a long empire-waist top. The leggings are a great option, particularly as you get farther along in your pregnancy and want a bit more stretch. Paired with a flowing top (yet with an empire waist to emphasize the smallest part of the torso), this outfit is both comfy and flattering!
From daywear to evening wear, Amy makes a seamless transition. In early January, Amy premiered her romantic comedy Leap Year and truly demonstrated the definition of red carpet maternity fashion. In a stunning red dress which hit just below the knee, she could not have looked more beautiful! This dress works for so many reasons. One, the fabric has movement and does not cling to her body. Secondly, the empire waist, cinched by a wide ribbon, defines the thinnest part of her body while celebrating her baby bump. Finally, the intricate neckline provides a frame for her gorgeous face. This dress is a great style for an expectant mother at any special occasion!
At the Golden Globes, Amy chose a similar style dress yet with a more structured feel. Once again, the empire-waist, knee length dress created a beautiful shape on her body and the wide shoulder strap provided bust support. With a thicker fabric, the dress provides excellent structure and a truly refined look. I love that her hair is pulled back, as it showcases her face and creates a sleek look. From cocktail parties to galas, a dress in this cut is incredibly figure flattering.
A final piece in Amy’s wardrobe that really grabbed my attention was the beautiful coat she wore to the taping of The David Letterman Show in January. Grey with red piping on the belt, this coat was flattering and stylish. The empire waist was perfect for her growing belly, while the structured shoulders added shape and definition. This coat is a great way to pull together an outfit!
Amy Adams is an incredibly talented actress who looks radiant both onscreen and off. Her pregnancy style, like her acting, is impeccable and I cannot wait to see her new baby this spring.
