LOOK: Celebrities who are making the exposed baby bump trend look chic

Gone are the days when maternity fashion meant loose and billowy clothes that conceal the baby bump. Now, a lot of mommies are proudly displaying their growing bumps and figures—stretch marks and all.

One celebrity that comes into mind is Rihanna, who is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

The singer-turned-style icon immediately became the quintessential poster girl of maternity fashion when she first stepped out in a pink vintage Chanel coat that exposed her bare baby bump.

Since her announcement in January, Rihanna has shown maternity wear look cool again through her street style looks.

Just recently, she was spotted wearing an all-black lingerie to Dior's Fall 2022 show in Paris Fashion Week. Rihanna meant it when she said she's "into pushing the idea of sexy" on her pregnancy style wearing a lacy bra and panty set and a sheer chemise, paired with a leather trench coat and knee-high leather boots.

Speaking to Refinery29 Rihanna said, “When women get pregnant, society tends to make it feel like you hide, hide your sexy, and that you’re not sexy right now [but] you’ll get back there and I don’t believe in that sh-t. So I’m trying stuff that I might not have even had the confidence to try before I was pregnant. The strappiest, the thinnest, and the more cut-outs the better for me.”

So if you're looking for ways to dress up during your pregnancy, allow these celebrities to be your inspiration. If you have one, flaunt it—these stars did!

Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell's maternity style just keeps getting better and better. The actress, who is pregnant with baby number 2, is not to shy away from showing her growing bump—she likes to make it a part of her looks, too!

Here's a styling tip from Mitchell: use safety pins as buttons on your sweater! "Every sweater is a maternity sweater if your safety pins work hard enough," she wrote in a post.

Kylie Jenner

How does Kylie Jenner make pregnancy look so effortless? Included in the capsule wardrobe of this businesswoman and reality star are mom jeans, trench coats, baggy jeans, and cropped tops (plus of course her cute tiny bags).

Ashley Graham

It's "sun's out bumps out" for model Ashley Graham!

The supermodel wasn't afraid to show her stretch marks and was always out and about showing off her belly—as she should—when she was pregnant to her twins. The proud momma of newborn babies Malachi and Roman was often seen wearing bikinis, cropped tops, or none at all!

This is a sign for you to continue wearing those pants—even if you can't zip them anymore. Fashion content creator Aimee Song dresses like she would usually do, proving you could still wear your baby tee and jeans when you're 35 weeks pregnant.
