I’m usually about a week behind on all of my TV shows. If it weren’t for DVR, this would have been aBig Brother-free summer, my friends. But luckily, I have my DVR, which is why I just watched the latest episode of Project Runway. And guess what – they designed maternity wear for Rebecca Romijn(is it wrong that I always think of lettuce when I hear her name?)
OK, let me first just say this HAS to have been Heidi Klum’s idea. She’s pregnant every 20 minutes (including right now), and I think she may be a producer on the show. Anyway, I absolutely loved the perplexed looks on the designers faces when they found out they were designing maternity wear and seeing the fake bellies they would have to drape around. This photo pretty much sums it up:
Here are some of my favorite quotes from this episode:
“Oh (expletive). (Expletive). Pregnancy challenge. I’ve never done a pregnancy outfit before in my life,” –Nicolas (the one with the weird hair)
“Is this where the baby goes?,” Christopher (this is the guy who won last week, mind you)
“She looks like she’s in her early second semester,” Ra’mon (who almost won last week)
So, clearly these designers don’t have much experience with maternity wear. However, since I’m newly without child and have pretty much been pregnant for the past 2 ½ years, I consider myself as much as an expert as Heidi. So, here are some of my thoughts on the outfits that went down the runway. As a side note, notice how Michael Kors was mysteriously “absent” for the pregnancy challenge. Coincidence? I think not.
This is definitely something I would have worn a couple of months ago. As Michael Kors would say, “It’s very chic. Very chic. It complements a woman’s body, and it’s chic.”
OK, the judges loved this one, but who wants to wear evening wear when they are nine months pregnant? And, I hate to say this, but a lot of the fabric is in the wrong place. That girl is one stumble away from a wardrobe malfunction.
Yeah, this is underwear.
I really want to like this guy because he’s from Savannah, but good Lord, talk about Mama shorts. Those things are huge. And I hate when you can see the belly band on maternity wear. I think this look made Neeena Gahr-see-uh (as Heidi would say) nauseous.
This was the losing look. Malvin said his look was inspired by fertility (creative!), and this was supposed to represent a mother hen and her egg. First off, I don’t believe in outfits with themes. Secondly, the “egg” looks like a grown toddler curled up in a ball in a sling. In my opinion, I believe they made the right choice by Auf’ing him.
So, those are my thoughts on the episode. I think this is going to be a great season, but let’s just hope they don’t have to design clothes for children, or Logan may tremble with fear.
Nothing makes dressing as easy as quickly wrap around a skirt and a slip on to a top and off you go. Apart from not having to think too hard, a Maternity Wrap Dress could be both empowering and utterly sexy. No need to bother about the shape and fittings. It compliments you the way you are.
A maternity wrap dress could become a stylish foundation for a crisp white shirt or your floral blouse. Winter Florals are a natural phenomenon in women’s fashion especially in the Big Apple.

High style is not always about comfort. It is more about looks. The motivators that created these high fashion saviors were unconditionally overruled in course of time. They were gone as quickly as they arrived. Whatever maybe our individual choices, designers globally have finally decided to bid farewell to those queens fashion. Comfort won over looks. Once again the maternity wrap dresses survived and carried on steadily and quietly.
In the last 2 decades there had been a whole new intellectual wave to fashion and dresses being an important factor. But the maternit wrap dress had always been a silent player. I would call it a survivor. New technologies were introduced in the manufacturing line, new cuts, new shapes and new purpose to define the new generation. The globalization added new concepts and there was the cultural blending. The internet made the world feel like a thimble making the designers come closer and there was a beautiful fusion of Japanese, American and European fashion. The fashion’s new formula was re-written. No longer had a seam needed to sit in a particular place on the body. No longer had a dress had to be made from a certain fabric. No longer had the top necessarily needed to match the bottom.

Looking a plus size evening wear has become a difficult mission for larger women. Not only are the items incredibly hard to find and often not very fashionable, but they are often extremely ill fitting meaning they end up in sizes either too small or way too big.
How too look and feel great in any garment, particularly an evening dress? Always choose simple cuts like an A-line or sheath dress and select fabrics that hang well over your curves. Colour choice is also an important factor. Dark colours (such as black or navy), for the plus size woman are a safe choice as they can appear slimming, however don’t be afraid to add a splash of colour for additional contrast and a bit of life. Not only can darker colours often be inappropriate for certain occasions but they can also become a bit of a clothing crutch.
Try something with a v-neck. If your best feature is your shoulders, then a strapless gown may work best.
A well made evening dress should always fit any body type nicely and make any woman feel beautiful – even in larger sizes for the larger woman. You can then begin to experiment using accessories – but remember, keep it simple!
