The red carpet was a little bumpy last night. Two glowing expectant actresses attended events with their cute pregnancy bumps on full display.
First, Marion Cotillard attended a fan event for her new film, Allied. She wore a floor-length, sleeveless, navy-blue gown that clung to her curves but still flowed. It looked like the perfect option for a pregnant women working the red carpet: loose without being frumpy, elegant without being uncomfortable.
Next we have Natalie Portman. She attended the 30th Israel Film Festival Anniversary Gala Awards Dinner, bump in tow. While she also went with a loose look, hers was a bit more daring, but she pulled it off. In a belted, white floor-length gown with blue stripes and bell sleeves, Portman floated over the carpet. A tie rested right above her belly, which accentuated it just the right amount. Portman looked breezy and comfortable.
Both actresses are pregnant for the second time, and their mastered comfy-elegant looks show they’ve done this before.
While they walked different carpets last night, they watched the same runway this past September during Paris Fashion Week, when they both attended the Dior show. Cotillard had just announced her second pregnancy and gave us a taste of the cozy-chic fashion we would see more of from her in the coming months: a slouchy white dress featuring ruched detailing. She wore the look over a printed slip. Portman, who also broke news of her pregnancy shortly before the show, was more covert in an elegant black peacoat over a barely visible silvery knee-length dress.
We love the low key, “Yes, I’m pregnant, but no, I’m not going to put my bump on display like a crystal ball” attitude.
