And now, our favorite part of this job: Yelling at pregnant women for failing to be fabulous.
Oh, we’re kidding. We’re pretty open about the idea that ladies baking people inside them get all kinds of dispensations when it comes to their style choices. If you’re in your third trimester, you get applause just for putting on shoes. In other words, while we still have style standards no matter what the situation, the bar is set extremely low for the pregos on the red carpet.
No. Absolutely not. Mirielle, you rock that bump as proudly and loudly as you wanna. There’s no reason to do anything but play it up in your style choices. But there are places where belts were not intended to go – and you just found one.
This is clearly not what the dress was designed for, so there’s all this bunching and pulling that only makes her look worse. If she didn’t want a dress that fell to the floor from her baby belly (and admittedly, that kind of dress is both figure-obscuring and tends to make the wearer look much bigger), then pick a dress that’s specifically tailored for a pregnant woman. There are plenty of dresses designed to accentuate and celebrate that bump, but this is not one of them.
Also: we would have assumed at this stage in the game that you’d need some killer support for those mommy-mams. Fine; you don’t want to wear a bra. It’s all good. But strapless was a terrible idea, because the only way to keep those things reined in is to shove them into a bust much too small for them. It’s cutting them so tight that she’s dangerously close to achieving quadra-boob. A sleeveless, plunging V neck would have showed things off in a much more flattering way.
And since we’re being such bitches, we may as well go all the way and note that the colors here are very harsh on her.
