Blake Lively’s 8 best maternity fashion looks of all time: she revealed her fourth pregnancy with Ryan Reynolds in a sparkling Valentino dress and donned daring Gucci and Versace red-carpet gowns
This month, Blake Lively stepped onstage at the 36th American Cinematheque Awards to present her husband, Ryan Reynolds, with his accolade. She looked glamorous as usual in a flowing floral dress … but we couldn’t help but notice the actor looked a little different this time around.
1. Michael Kors flowy floral dress
2. Gucci yellow gown with a deep neckline
A few days later, she hit a red carpet in a pastel-yellow maternity gown with a plunging neckline.
Her Gucci dress showed the more daring side of Lively’s pregnancy fashion. Its thin fabric hugged her body, and its deep neckline was decorated with a thick band of silver crystals. For accessories, the actor wore multiple diamond rings and yellow crystal earrings.
3. Backless, form-fitting LBD
Days before giving birth, the actor wore a backless, form-fitting gown at a L’Oréal Paris event. The black dress was asymmetrical with a single strap reaching across one shoulder, and another thin piece across her back. She made the classic outfit even more glamorous by adding layers of diamond bracelets and matching drop earrings.
4. Versace vibrant blue gown with a long train
In 2016, Lively attended the Cannes Film Festival in a stunning gown that showed her second baby bump. Designed by Atelier Versace, her vibrant blue gown was covered in silver beads from its off-the-shoulder strap to its long skirt, which had a thigh-high slit. The dress also had a thin slit below its neckline and a long train that flowed behind the actor.
5. Edgy Carolina Herrera midi dress
Lively took an edgier approach the following month at The Shallows premiere. Carolina Herrera created her black-and-white midi dress, which had a leather bustier bodice and a chic tulle skirt. The latter was crafted from sheer white fabric, and decorated with black flowers and petals. When Lively turned and posed for photos on the red carpet, her dress highlighted her baby bump.
6. Retrofête bright yellow sequinned frock
To announce her third pregnancy in 2019, Lively attended the Pokémon: Detective Pikachu premiere in a sparkling yellow gown. (The fact that Pikachu is yellow has not been lost on us!) Her sequinned midi dress was designed by Retrofête with a daring slit on the right side of its skirt and a matching belt tied loosely above her baby bump. For accessories, Lively chose diamond bracelets, multicoloured rings and pastel heels.
7. Valentino mod minidress
Then in September this year, Lively channelled the 1960s mod mood with a maternity minidress. Valentino designed her long-sleeved minidress, which was sheer aside from its rows of silver sequins. Lively completed the look with a thin white scarf around her neck, a matching headband, golden hoop earrings and platform heels.
8. Boho style with earthy accessories
The A Simple Favour actor paired the dress with stacked leather and jewelled bangles and turquoise and silver drop earrings. Her simple, swooping hairstyle drew attention to her earth-toned accessories.
