This award show season is all about celebrity moms-to-be showing off their baby bumps on the red carpet. Drew Barrymore, Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington looked flawless at Golden Globe Awards and SAG Awards and Ciara stole the show at this year’s Grammy Awards. Olivia Capone Myers, Design Director for A Pea in the Pod® can help other moms-to-be look just as red-carpet ready with some easy tips.
“The baby bump was the best accessory of the night,” says Olivia Capone Myers. “Femininity was key: Drew opted for a sweet, floral look, Kerry chose a sleek, elegant style and Olivia went for a glamorous, sparkling gown. Each mom-to-be stayed true to her personal style and wore a gown that made her look and feel great. Staying true to ‘you’ is an important tip to remember when dressing up during your pregnancy.”
Olivia added, “Kerry’s look at the SAG-AFTRA Awards was both adventurous and feminine. I love that she took a fashion risk opting for a chic Prada crop top and skirt. What makes this look work is the ultra-feminine pink color she chose to wear in lieu of a neutral. Kudos to Kerry for stepping in a nontraditional maternity silhouette and fun color.”
To get red-carpet ready, check out the below tips:
Start with Glowing Skin:
The best accessory for a gorgeous gown is glowing skin. Start by using an exfoliator like Basq Skincare’s Citrus Sugar Body Polish to help revitalize the skin. After exfoliating, enhance your pregnancy glow with St. Tropez Naturals Self Tan Milk which will give you a natural hint of color. Finally, maintain vibrancy and keep skin hydrated with Mama Mio's New Super-rich Body Cream. With these three easy steps, your skin will look flawless for your special event.
