  • Katy Perry's recent pregnancy looks have provided an absolute masterclass in maternity style.
  • Perry was supposed to host a livestream before Wednesday's planned SpaceX launch, but the launch was postponed due to bad weather.

I am very, very into Katy Perry's pregnancy style of late—colors! Patterns! Textures!—and the outfit she wore for Wednesday's scheduled SpaceX launch (which was subsequently postponed due to bad weather) could just be her best yet.

Back to that Balenciaga dress for a moment. The less diligent Instagram comment combers among you might have missed a super sweet contribution from Miranda Kerr—ex-wife of Perry's fiancé, Orlando Bloom, and mom of Bloom's son, Flynn. "Gorgeous mama," Kerr commented on Perry's post.

As further proof that Perry, Kerr, Bloom, Flynn, and future baby Perry-Bloom are one happy blended family? Kerr liked Perry's Instagram pregnancy announcement back in March, as People reports. Lovely!
