Watch: Pregnant Jennifer Lawrence reveals 'personal challenge' filming Don't Look Up

Being pregnant is no fun when it comes to looking glamorous. Nothing that fits, swollen ankles, exhaustion, puffy face...or at least, that's how it goes for mortals.

For the A list, however, who have a team of stylists and make up pros to bring the fabulous, looking incredible at eight months gone is standard.

This weekend, Jennifer Lawrence appeared at the red carpet premiere of Don't Look Up, with her ready-to-pop bump dressed in festive gold Dior sparkle. She wore the beautiful floor-length sheer frock with centre-parted, pulled-back hair and simple diamond earrings.

Lawrence recently told Vanity Fair that she's "grateful and excited' to become a mother alongside father-to-be Cooke Maroney, and intends to keep her child's life private.

"If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, 'Oh, my God, you're expecting a baby,' I wouldn't be like, 'God, I can't talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho!' But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can," she explained.
