In or Out: Bryce Dallas Howard in Christian Cota

Posted on November 25, 2011

No matter how stuffed you feel today, kittens, all sympathy must be directed toward Bryce Dallas Howard in that regard.

Bryce Dallas Howard in Christian Cota


At this time of enforced good cheer, we wouldn’t dare risk the wrath of the internet by ragging on a prego right now, but just so you know, we’re saying the following because it’s true, not because we’re afraid hordes of bitter kittens will pepper spray us for being mean.

This is a super-cute dress in any form, but it makes a particularly stylish maternity option. The colors look great on her; she looks put-together and appropriate, but comfortable; her hair looks great and we like her makeup, although we think the lip’s a bit too strong.

What? You can’t let us not criticize something here. It’s minor!

Anyway, you make the call:


Vote Now!

IN! She’s a chic mommy-to-be!
OUT! Expectant mothers should be kept discreetly from the public’s sight!

The kittens were cranky on Wednesday and you all voted Jessica Szohr’s salute to butterflies an OUT.

    Just *love* the Dodge Charger racing stripe colors.  Ugh. Tacky dress. 

  • Anonymous

    IN.  Although I do agree the lip is too something.  i dont think im ind it being strong, i just think the color somewhat clashes with her hair and/or the pop of color in the dress (cant decide which but i’m leaning towards not liking it with her gorge red hair).  but otherwise she looks fan-freaking-tastic.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      The lip/blush combo makes her look orangey or something. I agree that the makeup is the one bit of the entire look that is even a little off. IN.

    • Anonymous

      I’m ok with the lip with her hair, its the heavy cheek color thats throwing me off. I really hate it on her.

  • Catherine

    IN. She’s due like yesterday. The fact that she’s pulled together is a feat in itself. And I really do think she looks good.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    Bless…my thoughts exactly.  She looks great, given she is probably about to pop at any given moment.

  • Pumps and Gloss


  • BerlinerNYC

    It’s cute. In the upsizing for the maternity version, I would have liked to see the two stripes come closer to each other. I didn’t get the visual effect until I saw the original on the model. If we’re being nit-picky, the face is a little shiny (there are limits to “dewy”), and those bangs aren’t quite right. Overall a very cute and stylish look, though.

  • Anonymous

    I’m not a fan.  I’m all for pregnant women to strut their stuff, but this dress doesn’t do it for me at all.  I think it would be WAY cuter if it were shorter – maybe just above the knee.  Instead of draping, I think the top looks droopy.  I hate to give a daring, proud, mommy-to-be an OUT, but c’est la vie.  

    • Rand Ortega

      I agree. When I saw the dress, the 1st thing I thought was ‘racing stripe moo moo’. Shorter would have been better.

      (PS: What the hell is up w/ that wig on the model? It looks like she just swiped it off Phyllis Diller’s head.)

    • Teri Horne

      To be fair, her poor ankles are probably swollen like mad at this point!

    After I got past the weird angle on that first picture making her look lumpy and misshapen, I find she looks as cute and comfy as could be given the circumstances! IN!

      Agreed. The first photo is terrible.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, my thoughts exactly. It’s just a really odd angle. But it looks cute from the side, and bless her for dressing up when she’s so far along.

        • Elizabeth Hunter

          Agreed, the first photo was an odd angle, but for as far along as she is, I think she looks great! 

    • Sara Munoz

      Yeah, I think being forced to pose with your hand on your belly winds up pulling your clothes into unflattering contortions. 

  • Vera

    She looks glowing and happy.  When is the baby due?

  • Anonymous


    She looks very pretty and very happy.  Considering how far along she is and how big the baby bump is…I can’t imagine her being at all comfortable, yet no indication to that in her appearance.  Good for her.

    I agree about the lipstick…minor though considering how otherwise well she is put together.

    Face looks beautiful! Body looks like it needs to be popped ASAP!

    Sorry, I’m going to be the mean bitter kitten who votes Out, but she is just barely Out. The line down the skirt part looks terrible on her. I actually like the strong lip. She looks beautiful otherwise, I just don’t like the way that dress translates to maternity wear.

  • Anonymous

    Why is she holding her belly up? You’d think that, with all her money, she could hire a little person to hold her belly up for her.


    • marlie

      Though there’s no way to be sure of this, it seems like she’s posing that way (in the way that many pregnant women do) specifically to show off the belly.

      When I was pregnant ages ago, my sons would do acrobatics and stretch mightily in utero.  As I got farther along, I’d get an elbow or a heel pushing against me from deep inside.  It was pretty clear from the outside what the baby body part was, and it startled those unused to the whole process.  I’d get appalled comments like, “Is he trying to kick his way out?”  So I just put my hand over my incipient child and nudged him back into a fetal position.  It comforted me to know he was developing properly, and I like to think the warmth of my hand conveyed love and joyful anticipation back to him.

    • Leslie S

      just to make sure we know shes pregnant and not just fat. like there would be any confusion!

  • Anonymous

    I’m gonna say Out on this. I love the dress as on the model, but that huge belly just ruins it. I also don’t like the added length on it either.

  • Anonymous

     I have a feeling that fabric doesn’t photograph well, it looks like it’s really nice (and comfortable). IN

    Also: How is she even standing? Warrior.

    I really like that clutch! IN.

  • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

    I remember when I was pregnant with twins and only six months along. I was already giant and wearing an ill-advised red tent dress to a holiday party full of tiny eight month pregnant women who looked like they were sporting small basketballs under their dresses. A gentleman approached me and said, “It looks like you’ll be first to pop.” I was, in fact, the one with the farthest due date. So I feel for Ms Howard here and wouldn’t dare criticize a thing. I do, however, advise against the wearing of tent dresses when pregnant, especially red velvet ones.

      This was me. At 20 wks I was large enough that if I sighed too loud I literally had people whipping out their phones and asking if I needed an ambulance. I only had one in there too.

    In! She looks beautiful, and I like the strong lip!

  • Nancy Karpen

    IN She looks lovely.

    She gets an in for me just for still being on her feet at this point! And, the dress does look good on her, too!

  • Ilana Schenck

    I like the dress on the model, but I think her baby bump ruins the line…and the lines on the dress make her baby bump look warped.

    IN Possibly the most put together and stylish I’ve ever seen from a woman so pregnant. Bravo darling.  

  • Anonymous

    It’s a cute dress and it works well with Julie Christie wig on the model, but as maternity wear, it makes her look like she swallowed the turkey whole.

  • Stefanos Mantyla

    That first photo of her, with her hand holding up that bump, was a pretty bad one. In the rest of them, though, she looks better than expected, so I will give her an IN.

    • Anonymous

      I cringed in sympathy because I think it is quite likely that the photography caught baby in movement either stretching or squirming into a new position and the further you are in pregnancy the more it looks like some bizarre alien creature is trying to burst out of you. The shiny fabric isn’t helping.

      Otherwise I think she looks nice.

  • RyzandShyn

    IN. You’re right, the lip color is too strong.
    Here’s hoping another redhead is on their way.

  • Anonymous

    Agreed.  That lip color is all I see, which I suppose is a way to distract from the fact that she’s about to explode at any given moment.  The fabric is a little too shiny, but that is also minor. Still IN.

  • Anonymous

    That poor woman seems to me like she’s been pregnant for about 800 years.

  • Anonymous

    I’d never criticize another woman for a gorgeous dress that has an awkward fit issue over the baby bump, especially not when she’s so close to her due date. But I *would* criticize the designer for not giving her a skoosh more fabric over said baby bump, which would have alleviated any temptation to criticize at all. So a slap on the wrist to Christian Cota. It was a good try, it just fell a bit short.

    I like the lip, and I think she looks positively glowing. IN

  • Anonymous

    Her hair and face look beautiful, she really has the pregnancy glow – well either that or she’s wearing great “Pregnancy Glow” foundation!

    I don’t agree that the dress is flattering to the baby bump, but I’ll give her an IN anyway because she’s appears to be in a very good mood for someone who looks moments away from giving birth!

    Her beaming face reflects the beautiful, pregnant OpieRichieGirl that she is. But I do not like that dress. It’s cheap-looking and I don’t think it’s at all a good pregnancy dress. Also, her hands are in an unfortunate position for photographs. She probably has to pee, but shouldn’t indicate it. A little higher on the bump, please. So, reluctantly, OUT.

  • Vera Sticker

    I say IN. Hasn’t she been pregnant for like three years now, though?

  • muzan-e

    I agree about the lips – reluctantly. But personal experience insists that vivid reds are often unwise when carrying an indoors passenger and prone to sudden flushes. 

    But I find it hard to care about that, because the dress is perfect for her, she’s literally glowingly gorgeous, and this is exactly how I wanted to look when I was pregnant: flowing, silky and filled with radiant warmth.  It’s just so beautiful!

  • JaneM

    Yeah, sorry, out.  The fabric looks like if a match hit it it would turn into an ashtray (I’ve actually witnessed said phenomena), but mostly because in the first picture, she doesn’t appear to be so much cupping her arm around her almost newborn as she seems to be giving herself a quick hand job.

  • Paul John Kostrzewa


  • allisan riddle

    I wanted to say “Out!!”. But, I’ve been persuaded to say “In?”. She doesn’t need my vote of confidence, but she looks so happy if uncomfortable-her flushed cheeks throws her make-up off and the red lip does clash with her hair…I find it hard to match a good red lip to my own red hair. The dress is good, though a size too small. I remember being uncofortable in sweatpants when I was that pregnant, so she has convinced me- full-fledged In.

  • Ass Kicking Adviser

    Definitley IN. She looks lovely. I agree about the hair and make-up and unfortunate lipstick. I can’t stop staring at the dress. It’s really stunning – the material is so rich looking – and the 70’s inspired color/racing stripe…it’s just fabulous.

  • Anonymous

    I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to find a decent prego long dress, particularly one with a pattern that actually still looks like a pattern once you’ve fitted it over the critter.  That said, I’m not totally convinced the dress actually fits properly, and I like the short form about 1,000x more than the long, pregnancy version.  Still, she looks pretty and happy and I for that I have to go IN.

  • Anonymous

    IN. I think she looks awesome, and I am especially fond of her hairstyle. Good choice. She should wear her hair straight more often.

    IN.  Late stage of pregnancy is not exactly a walk in the park, and she’s doing it beautifully.  Wish we’d had today’s maternity style options back in the day.

    If we were only shown the first picture I would have said out, but then I scrolled down and saw the other angles and say IN. The first picture is hopefully just a bad shot, and anyone can take a bad picture preggo or not.

    She has a beautiful glow to her, but I don’t really like the dress on her or the model.  I’ll excuse the fit issues on Bryce because of how drastically and how quickly her body is changing shape right now, but the stripe just seems tacky to me, and the fabric doesn’t drape well, especially over the ever-growing baby bump.  I reluctantly have to say OUT, but it’s all because of the dress.

    IN.  Just the fact that she’s still smiling suggests that she’s going to be a super-mom — at that point in pregnancy, I was usually snarling and throwing things, I was so miserable from being kicked and punched from the inside, not to mention being unable to sleep and having to pee every 5 minutes.  But I do think the dress looks great as well as comfortable, and other than the comments about her makeup, I honestly can’t find a thing to criticize.  And I hope she has a fast, easy labor with a nice healthy baby at the end — that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

    • accidental housewife

      “And I hope she has a fast, easy labor with a nice healthy baby at the end — that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?”

      Yes, exactly. And I give her credit for making the effort to look good. Even if I had found something to criticize, I don’t think I could bring myself to say it. She could have shown up in sweat pants and a t-shirt and I’d give her a pass.

      exactly! she doesn’t need to hide, she just needs a dress that doesn’t make her look like a PILE of LUMPS!

    IN – she looks better than I do and I’m not preggers…as for the lip color, I don’t think it’s the strength of the color vs. it’s just the wrong color – too summery, pinky-orange.  If she’d gone a bit deeper, a bit more brick, it would have popped in a good way.  But I quibble.

    Bless her for looking like a normal pregnant person and not just a toned fitness fanatic with a small basketball under her dress.  I feel for her – looks like she’s ready to pop any second.
