BN Style Your Bump: Chrissy Teigen Edition

Published

 on

The days when pregnant women wear loose clothes to hide their baby bumps are long gone, these days the bump is an accessory and today’s woman isn’t afraid to bare her bump! From pregnancy photoshoots to red carpet looks and street style, BN Style is looking into maternity style from different women to help inspire you!

Today, we’re featuring US model and wife to John Legend, Chrissy Teigen. What we’ve noticed is an effective formula of bare legs with a mix of empire/high waist cuts and longline jackets and we have the photos to prove it!

The first time we heard their pregnancy news was in October of 2015 with this really cute photo of the couple and ever since then, Chrissy’s pregnancy style has evolved with her bump but it still remains modish.

She’s wearing Stella McCartney high-waisted trousers and a see-through lace Femme d’Armes top. The bump is in its early stages and this outfit does a good job a hiding the bump. She doesn’t even look pregnant here!

While casually walking her dog, Chrissy is spotted here wearing a form-fitting gray knit dress layered underneath a floor-length olive jacket. This look is quite similar to Kim Kardashian‘s pregnancy style with form fitting clothes.

In this look, Chrissy Teigen attended her ‘Cravings‘ book signing wearing a BOSSA camel dress, pink House of CB satin duster coat and nude Kurt Geiger London ‘Britton’ pumps. I’m loving the pop of pink mostly because she’s expecting a girl!

With another high waist skirt featuring a thigh high slit, Chrissy wears a black and white outfit and looks uber stylish with her scrappy heels.

In conclusion one thing is certain, the model/mom to be lets her legs do all the talking just so we don’t forget she’s a swimsuit model. Again her choice of styling reiterates the points I gave in the BN Body Series, expose your slimmest parts and enhance your best features and you’re fine! The point between her bust and belly is currently the slim part of her torso, the high waist styles define that. Her legs are slender and toned, the thigh high slits help flaunt that.

Hope you enjoy this maiden edition, there’ll be more on the way. If you have any suggestions on who we should cover next, please feel free to let us know.

    I am here for all of this!!!
    Chrissy by far wins in the maternity look department. Unlike Kim, she actually experiments with looks that suit her and her baby bump.
    Love me some Mrs Legend.

    She was actually channelling Kim’s pregnancy style. What makes the difference is that she is tall and slim while Kim is short and fat, so their bodies look totally different while pregnant.
    Look at the styles she’s wearing and compare to what Kim wore (almost exactly similar)

    @Zedzed so true. She always said she got her pregnancy style from KimK. The only difference is their body types. With Mrs Legend being a model.

    I’m still stuck on the pix where she’s walking her dog with those shoes – http://www.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/chrissy-teigen-pregant-bella-naija-april-2016-8.jpg. What if the dog decides to do sth naughty? But all in all, her style is “da bomb”. I hope I’m this sexy when I’m preggy..

    Chrissy, Blake Lively, Kourtney & Beyonce had the cutest and most flattering pregnancy styles.
    Chrissy was sexy, Blake had this hobo chic
