The 411 on Chrissy Teigen's Maternity Style, Straight From Her Stylist
Since the minute Chrissy Teigen announced her pregnancy, we've been dying to see how her maternity style would develop. And we certainly haven't been disappointed yet. So far, she's experimented with sheer looks and punchy colors, and she shows no signs of slowing down in the stellar-style department.
But she's not going it alone: The mastermind behind her killer looks is celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson, who also counts Emma Stone, Nina Dobrev, and more as clients. So how has Patrickson tackled dressing a pregnant celeb? "Thus far we have just been playing around and finding things that are comfortable first and foremost!" Patrickson told Who What Wear. "Chrissy is one of those perfect pregnant women who is just showing on her tummy, and the rest of her looks the same." (Lucky her!)
Patrickson says not to expect Teigen's style to turn drab just because she's pregnant. "She also navigates a sky-high heel like you or I would sneakers, so she's kept up the glam side of it too," Patrickson told us. As for the wardrobe transition, the stylist has an excellent pointer: "A lot of what's been working well is mixing and matching pieces that Chrissy owns with additional pieces we've been substituting in."
And at the end of the day, maternity style rules can be applied to anyone, expecting or not. "Always eyeball it," Patrickson told us. "Just because you are pregnant doesn't mean pieces can't be really flattering." Amen to that.
Scroll down to see what Chrissy Teigen has in her maternity wardrobe arsenal, according to her stylist, Anita Patrickson!
3.1 Phillip Lim Embroidered Gown With Broken Line Back Panel ($1050)
"We are loving pairing coats over more formfitting dresses or bodysuit/skirt combos, but there are only so many trenches one can own. This fun 3.1 Philip Lim maxi dress is such a gorgeous color, and its floaty and feminine vibe became the perfect instead-of-a-coat coat!"
Victoria Victoria Beckham Wool-Crepe Mini Dress ($477)
"When you become pregnant, I feel like your style goes one of two ways: stretchy, sexy, and formfitting or short, boxy, and leggy. This Victoria Beckham mini is perfect for the latter. It pays homage to the '60s, the boxy cuts fits a bump nicely, and we get to show off Chrissy's fabulous long legs!"
Stella McCartney Paperbag-Waist Wide-Leg Pants ($1630)
"Pants are tricky when you are pregnant—they're usually the first item in your wardrobe you have to start rethinking. These Stella McCartney pants are so fab. They give you a little room around the belly and hit at the waist at exactly the right spot."
