In between the bronzed Angelina legs and bare bosoms at Cannes, there was one star who might have shone even brighter than the rest: Thai actress Araya Hargate, whom we once (rightly ::shoulder brush::) hailed as a member of the rising class of style icons. Why, though? She's five months pregnant. Here, a tribute to her always Fashion, always regal red-carpet style, which might look even *better* with a bump underneath.
I-con-ic. She's in Ralph & Russo Couture and out to prove that pregnant women ought not settle for whatever still fits them—they can and should go for body-con white, a freaking full-length ostrich cape, and crystals galore.
The drama doesn't end when you're carrying a baby. Draped, tiered Olivier Theyskens gets turned all the way up with a topknot, matching gloves, and major jewels.
That color combo! The Empire silhouette! This is Giambattista Valli Couture, and it's a moment.
Kim K. isn't the only one can do maternity sheers. A faux-modest Ashi Studio dress gets the party treatment with nude underwear.
One word: Ahhhhh. (Okay, three more: Zuhair Murad Couture.)
We are so far from the days pregnant celebrities stayed home, or, at best, went out swathed in tents. Sweeping in a different way, this strapless Alexis Mabille Couture juxtaposes a cathedral-worthy quilted train with a belly-accentuating sheath. Celebrating all the amazing things a woman's body does has never looked so glam.
