Mireille Enos at “The Killing” Season 4 Premiere

Posted on July 16, 2014

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.

Even so:

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.

    • Jessica Freeman

      What the fuck of the day, that belt. No doubt.

    • Danielle

      THE BELT SHOULD BE ABOVE YOUR BUMP COME ON NOW.

    • marlie

      I’m impressed that she’s out and about. As for the look… get rid of the belt, lighten up on the too-harsh makeup, and we’re good.

      • smayper

        That belt, plus the eyeliner, are causing me physical pain. I love her looks and her acting so this is saaad!

        • livesarah

          Yeah, apart from the makeup and fact I don’t come close to being anywhere near as stunning as she is generally, seeing her here, she reminds me of prego me. And I am not someone who does pregnancy well *at all*. I stayed home so I could be braless and waddle about in a sarong. Mireille must have been contractually obliged to show up, and this get-up was her ‘fuck you’ to whoever insisted she do.

    • RussellH88

      Even as a man, I think I can safely say that wrapping a dog leash around yourself to accentuate your bump is no-no.

      • L’Anne

        And it looks like it could induce labor.

        • FuhUgh

          Or like she is IN labor and is trying to hold the baby in place for step-and-repeat.

          • Sophie

            She probably stepped out of her home with the belt above the bump, and changed its placement when she felt the first contractions upon arrival at the red carpet. Which means she must have far more taste and ingenuity than we can give her credit for here.

    • Crystal

      WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT BELT?

    • Jennifer Bober

      That belt was a serious lapse in judgement!

    • msdamselfly

      WHy didnt anyone speak up?

    • RescueMe23

      OK – no disrespect to pregnant women – but I laughed out loud at this and TLo’s assessment.

    • deelup

      If she really wanted to use underwire it could’ve been more effective in a bra.

    • Julie Chase

      Jesus take the wheel, that makeup!

      • L’Anne

        Someone, tell her to never again use Homer Simpson’s make up gun set to “whore.”

        • Julie Chase

          For women who only have four fifths of a second to get ready.

        • Nicole

          God, I love this site. I almost spit out my coffee!

    • Introspective

      since she’s so far along that she could be at least a cm or 2 dilated already, im giving her mad props for coming out.

      that said, that belt seems torturous to be placed so near your pelvis at a time like this. having sympathy pains over here for you.

      • The Counselor

        *I’m* a couple cm dilated already (37+ weeks along), and seeing this post makes me feel very proud of myself for a) not having made the kind of serious lapses in sartorial judgment seen here, despite wearing long strapless dresses at least half the days of the week and b) wearing a strapless bra! Granted, my bump (and bust) seems to be a bit smaller than Mireille’s, so who knows what’s comfortable for her right now. I will say that just the thought of “events” or outings is exhausting at this point, so I wholeheartedly agree with giving her a lot of credit for rallying and making it out (especially in front of cameras).

        • Kitten Mittons

          Good luck with the remainder of your baby baking! Hope all goes smoothly.

          • The Counselor

            Thanks! I think I’ve got an eager one, ready to get this show on the road!

            • Kitten Mittons

              A go-getter!

    • Paigealicious

      I don’t know if I’m more offended by that belt (and the shoes, eek!) or the fact that there’s a season 4 of The Killing.

      • homofascist

        I actually thought season 3 was pretty solid, which is amazing that I actually watched since season 2 felt like stabbing myself in the eye with a rusty butter knife.

        • Paigealicious

          Yeah, I suffered through season 1 to follow TLo’s recaps but was so angry about the season finale I had no interest in watching any more…though I did hear season 3 was much better.

          • Alexa42

            Season 3 was genius and Peter Sarsgaard’s performance was devastating. But don’t take my word for it because I’m pretty much the polar opposite of Rusty Butter Knife Viewer – The Killing is my favorite show ever and I’m counting the days until August.

            • another_laura

              I dropped it after season 2. Season 3 is really that good? Really really?

            • sundaynightaddict

              I’m with @Alexa42:disqus – great season!

      • MilaXX

        the show that will not die.

        • Kent Roby

          ironically

    • gayle

      I would have been okay if she had just skipped the belt. The dress is still a bit tight but she is busy growing a human being so she gets to wear what she wants.

    • Glam Dixie

      What you said. That is one of the most horrifying things I have ever seen. I need more coffee.

      • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

        Right? The Uncles nail it again. I would be crying about this look if I weren’t laughing so hard at their remarks. And while we’re on the subject, I wish ALL guys could be as forgiving as they are about what a third trimester woman wears. It’s been 26 years since I was last pregnant but I remember some of the barbs vividly.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Oh, honey.

      Honey.

      Let’s go get some ice cream.

    • Thomas

      Oh. My. God. What was she thinking???

      • Glam Dixie

        Pregnancy brain. It’s a real thing.

        • Thomas

          Does anyone else think she looks like a giant strawberry?

      • Carleenml

        I can’t think of a better example of complete-and-utter-disconnect than this woman and the character she plays. I think it whenever I see her on a red carpet. Crazy eyes. Goofy make up, no style…her character on the show was so hip/understated/pretty. This is just ridiculous.

    • eandh99

      lots and lots of pregnant women find the under-the-bump belt comfy, though. I’m thinking of Chris Hemsworth’s wife who was hugely pregnant at the Oscars, had twins 2weeks later, and got tremendous stick for wearing this kind of silhouette

      • Kent Roby

        Who could blame her for getting Chris Hemsworth’s tremendous stick?

        • eandh99

          they’ve been married 31/2 years and she has three kids, just saying

      • Juniper Bell

        I remember that dress, but If I remember correctly, TLo gave her points for that dress. Same silhouette. Awful both times..
        Sorry pregnant ladies!

      • MilaXX

        Worse pregnancy band ever! I doubt that thin belt is supportive enough to do anything

    • Kent Roby

      She’s probably using the belt to hold the baby in until after the premiere, bless her heart.

      • EveEve

        This ain’t her first baby rodeo, so she knows the belt’s not going to hold that baby in.
        She looks flat-out miserable. Ergo, baby’s coming any day now.

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      NO NO NO NO NO…that being said, yes you look LOVELY honey (backs away slowly.)

    • smh4748

      I understand the thought process on this, actually. I’m sure that she put the dress on and felt she looked tent-like, because, well, that’s a big baby bump. The belt seemed like a quick way to announce “pregnant, not fat” and I totally get a woman wanting to make that distinction, especially in photographs.

      Poor thing. That’s not the stage at which I’d want to be out and about and smiling and putting on a show. It’s the stage at which I’d like to be on the couch in sweats binge watching something on Netflix.

      • Kitten Mittons

        The thought of having to be on display at this stage of pregnancy is horrifying.

        I actually just packed all my maternity clothes/post-pregnancy clothes away this weekend, and I think I quit buying new clothes somewhere around 7-8 months along. Baby was 2 weeks late, I barely fit in anything, and I. Did. Not. Care. At 10 days late, I refused to go to a cousin’s wedding because 10 Days Late, and shoes and I did not get along.

        Pictures of those two weeks do not exist. If they did, and were available on the internet, I don’t know the drastic measures to which I would go to change my identity.

        • Mismarker

          Your first sentence says it all. I said much the same here all throughout Kerry Washington’s cavalcade of unfortunate maternity red carpet style choices. I’m 6 months pregnant with my third child and am so excited to burn or give away all my maternity clothes in November. Also excited to have zero weddings to attend this summer. No one wants to see these cankles.

          • Kitten Mittons

            Congrats! And you’re almost there!
            We’re still thinking about a second child, so I can’t burn or give them away yet, but I wanted to. You just get so sick of wearing the same few outfits over and over and over again, and having them fit worse and worse. Bleh.

            Take heart that I’m sure you look way more pregnant-adorable than you probably feel right now. I saw three pregnant ladies this weekend, and each one made me go, “Oh, she is just so lovely!”

            And nobody will judge you for cankles or pajamas, or flat out not going to something IRL. A below-bump belt, maybe, but everything else is forgiven and forgotten ;)

            • kerryev

              Maybe this is better asked in the Lounge, but does anyone have recommendations for favorite maternity retailers or bloggers? My belly just became obvious in the past week or so, I have no idea what I’m doing, and in a couple weeks the bar exam will be over and I’ll have to/be allowed to start leaving the house…

            • Kitten Mittons

              I never found a blogger I liked, but I read a ton of books. My favorite was probably “The Taboo Secrets of Pregnancy: A Guide to Life With a Belly.” Available in e-formats, if you prefer. I spent a lot of time on baby center dot com in their forums, too.

            • smallgirlsaretrouble

              First, congrats re the bar exam!

              Second, I can only recommend Australian websites, but will say as a fellow lawyer working in a corporate law firm I found that I needed to splash out on a few proper maternity suit pants/skirts in order to still look professional. I then was able to get away with quite a few cheaper tops (many not even maternity) and also a few dresses – throw a black suit jacket over the top and suddenly it is office/Court appropriate.

              I got told that if I was buying maternity tops to buy ones that double as breast feeding/nursing tops. However, I have found most nursing tops still accommodate a “bump”, which I don’t have, so I have just bought lots of cheap stretchy t-shirts and button up shirts for breast feeding. Love a good scarf too for when out and about in public.

              Best of luck :)

      Another example of why eyeliner circles are almost NEVER a good idea.

    • spirit52

      A travesty

    • lexilexi

      In addition to her multiple faux pas’ here, I find her terrifically annoying. There’s something about that smile that puts her on my irrational dislike list.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      I wonder if Drew Barrymore is trying to get pregnant again so she can borrow this?

    • jbontrager78

      The makeup is also terrible.

      • Carleenml

        I’m pretty sure her make up is always terrible.

    • SewingSiren

      There IS a reason that maternity wear is a specialization.

    • Janet B

      Pregnancy brain for sure – where is her stylist?

      I’m having a difficult time not laughing.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Everything about this look gives me sympathy back pain. I’m pretty sure she has to “tuche” her booty to keep that belt up. And the makeup is making her look crazy. The whole look adds up to “Jersey Shore Wannabe,” which I would normally say is less than the sum of its parts, but every piece here looks cheap, so I’m going to say it’s about right.

      • conniemd

        That was my first thought, how much her back must hurt with that gigantic baby bump. I went to the chiropractor when I was pregnant because the extra weight just killed my back.

    • MilaXX

      Stop it! GTNYD. It’s the wrong color for your skin tone, the belt is just silly, and the boobies are free wheeling. That heavy black eyeliner is no bueno.

    • jilly_d

      Forget about the dress….sweetie, fire the asshole who did that to your face.

    • Alyssa

      The only plausible explanation is that no one told her to lose the belt for fear of incurring the wrath of a very pregnant lady.

    • boweryboy

      I can’t even. This is People of Walmart trashy.

      • Carleenml

        I keep scrolling back up in that “watch a train wreck” sort of way and quickly scrolling back down. It’s SO awful.

        • boweryboy

          I know, right?

    • http://janineshroff.co.uk/ Scritch

      MY EYES! OH MY GOD MY EYES! I think my retinas have burst… or all that bulging red is making me think my eyes are bleeding

    • Mismarker

      Oh, Mireille, this pregnant mama knows your pain and maternity style conundrums. Keep smiling, honey. And fire everyone involved in this look.

      On a related note, who is excited for The Killing?

      • carpediva

        Um… no one? ;-)

        • Mismarker

          : ) Ouch. I’ll watch but must admit, unlike the lead up to new seasons of House of Cards and OITNB, I’m not excited enough to know *exactly* when the new season is dropping!

          • Grace C.

            Have you checked out Hannibal? I just binged it last weekend and while it is gory (I covered my eyes probably half the time) it is amazingly good. How it was looked over for creative and technical Emmys, to say nothing of Mads’ performance, is mind-boggling.

            • Mismarker

              I saw the first few episodes of the first season and then life got in the way! Think it was on Friday nights at that point? How did you binge it? My provider has only a few eps up On Demand.

            • Grace C.

              Project Free TV :)

              I watched all twenty-six episodes over the weekend, even when it was unwise (late at night, in the dark, by myself). Even though I knew (from too much AV Club) how season two ended, I HAD to get there on my own omg, that episode (called “Mizumono”) was worth it. In fact, I might watch it again tonight. It ranks for me in a three-way tie with “Ozymandias” and “The Strategy” as the finest hour of television in the 2013-2014 season. In general, the cinematography, the visuals, the recurring motifs, the music, are just unthinkable for network television. I cannot believe “Wahlburger’s” got nominated for an Emmy and nothing from Hannibal was called out.

            • Mismarker

              I think Emmy voters have a problem with “genre tv” in general. Though that doesn’t explain the love Game of Thrones gets!

              At this point, I’m over getting upset about Emmy snubs. Now I just feel sorry the voters aren’t watching better stuff.

            • Grace C.

              I can almost, kind of, maybe get the hesitancy to vote to nominate a show about a serial killer as Best Drama Series. But I honestly am baffled as to how anyone in the industry can look at the work of the cinematographer, the composer, the production designer, the costumer, and not recognize that – genre be damned – it is the cream of the crop in terms of what they’re putting out (and on a small budget, no less).

              It’s one of the things the Oscars gets right, making sure only the specialists in each field pick the nominees for that respective field, so whatever problems the masses might have with a film don’t result in the technical achievements going unrecognized. (And, alternatively, so that a film the masses are gaga for doesn’t necessarily pick up an award in an area it doesn’t really deserve to win.)

              (But Mads Mikkelsen really, really was robbed.)

      • Grace C.

        I’m curious to see how they conclude it, though I felt that they were really boxed into a corner at the end of season three (after all, Skinner’s wife knows who he was last seen with and they have to deal with how the finale ended).

        I also have zero faith in Veena Sud to not shit the bed again. But we shall see.

    • Anna

      Just…no. For all the previously stated reasons. But I do hope she went home to a large ice cream sundae and got a nice back rub/foot massage.

    • twocee

      That is full stop awful.

    • Guest

      aw hell naw.

    • Emily

      Ugh, an honest-to-god bathrobe would have been better than this.

      She looks like Karen Black, and this outfit is a sequel to “Trilogy of Terror”.

    • PinkyK

      She looks like my 80 yr old dad wearing size 34 pants!

      • kimmeister

        Yes! This totally looks like when men with a huge beer belly wear tiny pants and belt them under said belly.

        • PinkyK

          Yep! That’s my Dad’s look!

    • Carolyne

    • Kate Andrews

      Ugh. She should have stayed home. She looks SO uncomfortable.

    • Jackie4g

      This is really stretching the concept of tolerance for pregnant women, because there’s so much that could be better. That color is difficult under the best of circumstances, and the styling just makes her body look like she’s all jammed in there. Not good. There really are better choices for third trimester pregnancy special occasions.

      • SewingSiren

        There are tons of pretty stylish jersey maternity maxi dresses out there, Target, H and M, Old Navy all have maternity dresses for less than $50 . If she doesn’t want to spend the money borrow one from a friend.

        • Grace C.

          Heck, I’d have put her in that maxi J-Lo was wearing in pictures with Leah the other day. Comfy and un-restrictive.

      They must have red carpet premieres for EVERYTHING these days. The show is streaming on Netflix, wouldn’t a simple press release do the job (plus save that poor lady loads of discomfort).

      She looks like a sunburned python who just swallowed a baby.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Pregnancy hormones make you do strange things, indeed. But, on the other hand, did she get dressed all alone, in the limo on the way over? Why didn’t anyone stop her and gently explain that she was going to be going out in public? That this wasn’t a gathering of just friends to watch some dailies?

    • J.W.

      It looks like the strap that is used to make bulls buck in rodeos.

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        Shame on you! I love you, but shame on you. And shame on me for laughing.

        • J.W.

          ;)

    • cocohall

      Perhaps the belt is actual a high tech monitor of some kind? She was under doctor’s orders to wear it whenever out and about? Because it just makes no sense. The belt isn’t big enough to actually be providing bump support (there are indeed stretchy belts worn at this exact placement – but UNDER the garment- to provide bump support). I feel bad for her chiefly because she will regain her figure and her fashion sense at some point post-birth and these photos will HAUNT her. Conversely, she will embrace these photos and produce them when the bump has become a teen and use them to shame said teen into good behavior: DO you SEE how I suffered to bring you into this world? Do you see what I was forced to wear in public?

      • demidaemon

        I think using them as teen shaming is the only good that can come from these photographs, other than teaching other pregnant women how to not dress when you are forced out into public under duress.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I think it’s cute she wants to show off her belly, but this was not the dress to do it. Some stylist needs to step up and help a pregnant lady out here!

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Oh my word. That’s just not pretty. Head to toe no.

    • Qitkat

      Ohh, honey, Bless Your Heart. (in my best Alabama accent)
      You’ll have that precious bebe soon and this will fade away, except unfortunately forever on the internet.

    • MandyM

      Seriously, she could have come out in pajamas and fuzzy slippers at this point and no one would fault her but to make this much effort to look like this is just so sad. She is lovely and could easily have been styled better than this. Someone should have been a friend and told her to take off the belt at the very least.

    • luluransom

      I’ve been coming to this joint a long time and that is the weirdest belt deployment I’ve ever seen. Holy cats.

    • formerlyAnon

      No. All of the Uncles’ criticisms are valid.

      There are dresses made to gather like that under the bump. I associate them with blondes who do a lot of yoga and have french pedicured toes, and therefore look at them askance, but the point is they exist. This looks like an improvisation at the last minute.

    • Danielle

      Move the belt above the bump and add straps to make this a halter, and I think it can be saved.

    • Imasewsure

      Maybe the worst pregnant-lady-on-the-RC dress ever? Wow not good

    • alyce1213

      Those crazy hormones. That’s the only possible excuse for this.

    • HeisenbergHattie

      How miserable does she look? She should have stayed home with her feet elevated sipping mineral water 20 feet from the loo.

    • evave2

      I also think the color is just wrong with her hair/coloring. I also don’t want to be rude about the way the dress fits her breasts and stomach. I think she felt damned to show up, but her child will look at this and go MAMA.

    • SugarSnap108

      I actually think the makeup is worse than the clothes. Which is astounding.

    • rumcg66

      I just yelled “oh no! out loud as I scrolled. That might be the worst pregnancy look I’ve ever seen. On anyone. Ever.

    • SistaT

      Oh, sweetie. I’m wincing and holding my back in sympathy. I remember being that pregnant. It felt like the baby was gonna actually split through and fall out on the floor any minute. Walking was an effort. I have to admit there were times when I wished I had some sort of strap that would hold everything. That said, sweet pea … I did not make it an actual style choice. You would’ve been well within your rights to stay home. No one would have faulted you. But since you wanted to go out and flaunt your mama-to-be-ness (and I think you should, because I think you’re glowing and lovely), at least wear the weird belt/strap thing *underneath* so none of us know.
      I hope you had a wonderful, soothing foot massage waiting for you at home.

    • KT

      Haha yelling at pregnant ladies: check! Cross it off your to-do list.

      I kid, I actually totally agree with you. Yes she gets a pass because she’s super pregnant, but this is aggressively unflattering in every way. Maybe this is a social experiment, to see how many people will actually tell her how she looks at this stage in the game?

      • Gatto Nero

        “Aggressively unflattering.” Nailed it.

      I blame Demi and Vanity Fair.

      And she’s breaking my absolutely-no-exceptions rule for preggos…I DO NOT NEED TO SEE WHAT YOUR SPAWN IS DOING TO YOUR BELLYBUTTON. Seriously, put a nipple petal over that shit. Or wear something that doesn’t announce its hideous presence.

        it’s just a belly button doing it’s thing during pregnancy. It can’t hurt you.

        • quiltrx

          But I’m terribly, terribly afraid that it might! :)

          • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

            And I am afraid of bears, even tho I live in the Midwest where there are no bears. We all have something :-)

    • Gorengirl

      Her makeup is way too harsh and I simply have no words for that orange belted bedsheet wrapped around her….

    • Eleanor

      Yikes! Give me kinnaman instead!

      That belt. Why? Why? Why? I give a very pregnant lady a pass on every thing else, but that belt. Why? Why? Why?

    • Alison

      Oh, poor dear. Sweetie, when somebody asks you to go out to a premiere at this stage of the game, you are perfectly within your rights to tell them to shove it.

      The form-fitting attire currently in vogue is light years away in a good way from those pseudo-virginal, child-like tents women were forced to wear back in the day, so kudos for getting modern and I’m all for Mama Pride in the Bump. But mommies: The form-fitting attire suffices. We get it and we celebrate with you. But that added highlight (or lowlight) of the belt is simply too much to bear. Let this trend stop now!

    • mmebam

      That belt reminds me of those pelvic support strap things that women in the third trimester sometimes have to wear.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Are you sure she’s pregnant? She doesn’t have her hand on her belly. That’s the international celebrity sign of “I am pregnant.” Thus I am in doubt.

    • decormaven

      If the belt were swung any lower, the baby could ride it like a trapeze. Seriously though, bless this woman for meeting her contractural arrangements, but surely another outfit was available.

    • AlisonHendryx

      oh and that maaaaaake up…… oh, honey. no.

    • frannyprof

      As a former pregnant lady, I can say this is NOT the way to go. Ugh.

    • unbornfawn

      WTF with the belt? If she was going for a trailer trash look, she succeeded.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Oh dear, no. This look like what somebody wears to the trashy neighbor’s grab-some-beer-in-the-back-yard party.

      • demidaemon

        It does have that unfortunate “Pregnant and Barefoot at the Trailer Park Vibe.” And I feel horrible for typing that, but I did.

    • ChelseaNH

      Wait, that show is still on?

    • appliquer

      Oh, no, no, no. Please also lighten up on the overly harsh eyeliner.

    • crash1212

      This is awful. Full stop. I wouldn’t like that dress in any event, but deployed as it is here….NOPE.

    • newidentity

      She looks so uncomfortably far along I’m actually worried she had the baby on the red carpet after this photo was taken. I bet she could have gotten away with wearing sweats and she would’ve gotten a better pass than this.

    • Grace C.

      Words fail me.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      um….it got her (horrible) attention? (whoever she is…and no, this horror is not worth a google)
      this kind of crap will def get her a People Mag mention (bad publicity is STILL publicity..and a lot of folks will give her the ‘awww…but she is pregnant’ thing)

      • Grace C.

        She’s the star of The Killing (so it would have been awkward, though understandable, if she missed the premiere), was Brad Pitt’s wife in World War Z, and is married to Alan “Cameron Frye” Ruck. She’s not an unknown quantity.

    • demidaemon

      I think it is the color(s) that are most horrifying here. They are doing all kinds of awful things to her skin tone, and, on top of that, the dress looks like it was made from random crafting leftovers at Michaels’. NO BUENO.

    • Shannon Long

      This look is absolutely tragic all around, there’s just no way around it. I will say, however, that I finally got around to watching World War Z and was absolutely stunned by how exquisitely gorgeous Mireille Enos is. I had only ever seen her on The Killing, and was unaware just how much they were frumping her up. She’s also an amazing actress (in addition to being a deranged belt-wearer).

    • Sophie

      “dangerously close”? I thought quadra-boob was already achieved in the first picture. The make-up is doing her no favours, as is the belt.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      Oh God,. She looks insane. She should have stayed home, not because she is pregnant, just because it’s clear this was Not Her Day.

    • Michelle Gennari

      Yikes.

    • mskgb

      Look at her face–That’s a pregnant woman who has to go to work in painful shoes when she’d rather be home, reclining and sipping a cool drink. I agree with others who deemed the belt a “not fat, just pregnant” choice (consider the industry in which she works). But, oy, looking at the untethered breasts, sizable belly and tiny body gives me all manner of sympathy pain.

    • Mothra

      It would not surprise me if there was a leash tied to the back of that belt. It looks a lot like a big dog halter, or perhaps one for a potbellied pig. Not one for a lovely pregnant lady

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      OMG! Who did that to her? She is so beautiful and that make-up is hiddy, the colors are horrific and yeah, the ‘dress?’ Is it one? What is, the, I can’t, belt, upset, wtf?????

    • deech_sea

      It’s difficult. At this stage of the game, you feel like an elephant, and you’re happy to find clothes where you don’t (think you) look like one, which leads to poor choices. All pregnant women in their third trimester get a free pass on shoes. At this point, you’ll wear anything that still fits, doesn’t hurt, and doesn’t cause you to trip, when your center of gravity is already off. Any woman with small children who leaves the house in something that doesn’t look like yoga pants or pajamas gets a gold star–IMHO, of course.

      But, yes, the belt and the dress color weren’t good choices.

    • sk8tfan

      I can’t get past the hooker makeup to judge the outfit. Her body gets a free pass from any criticism from me.

    • Joycelyn Watterson-Woods

      Was she afraid we wouldn’t realize she was pregnant if she didn’t put a circle around it? It’s like ladies who have smallish baby bellies so they hold their dresses right under that bump to accentuate it lest anyone think they just ate a big meal. I normally agree with third trimester peeps getting passes but this is awful. The color isnt great on her, she probably feels like its 900 degrees out, but there are so very many ways she could have played this better. she is so pretty that she could have played up her gorgeous skin and hair, but this wasnt her look. She has shoes on her feet which is enough to impress me, so she gets points for that!

    • GemFemme

      This is when a ripe, pregnant women really needs her gay uncles. They would never have let her out looking like this. They would have made as comfortable as possible while still looking stylish. 3rd. trimester moms can look so lush and sexy. You’d never know that looking at these pictures.

    • GeoDiva

      A someone who has had 2 kids, that is just a big “No”.

    • http://msavonelljrose.blogspot.com Avonell

      Why does she have that belt! I don’t get it!

    • Judih1

      What a hot mess! No excuse pregnant or not.

    • histrogeek

      Shoot the clown who did that lipstick. Eeek.

    • DominoEstella

      oh. god. no. W.T.F. Her boobs have grown as much as her belly.

    • Shaeyjosan

      lose the black mascara and the belt. Unless you want to move it right under the mammaries…. but what I am really stoked about is there is another season of The Killing. I thought they canceled the show. LOVE HER and her partner Joel. Rock that bump (in another color)

    • laylagalise

      No.

    • MaggieSays

      Why not just put the belt around your belly button? What the actual heck?

    • ktr33

      this is excruciating.
      And as someone who’s been pregnant twice, to me that belt is like a visual representation of labor pains.
