There are dozens of shows and magazines devoted to what our favorite actresses and musicians wear on the red carpet and when they are out and about running errands. From the wildest Met Gala dresses to the casual, chic clothes they wear in every day life, celebs are usually setting the trends.
These days, celebs are also setting standards in maternity fashion. The Hollywood baby boom has all of us wondering how everyone from Carrie Underwood to the Kardashians are accessorizing their baby bumps. It's as much about the bump watch as the dresses that show them off in our book, but it's fun to see these frocks that are fashion-forward and maternity friendly.
Celeb moms-to-be have had a lot of amazing fashion moments this year. From the video where Kylie finally let us in on her pregnancy to the award show circuits and baby showers, we've gotten to see everything from short skirts to long and luxurious dresses to the power suits. One thing is for certain, the celeb mamas of 2018 sure have great fashion sense. Here are 25 celebs who rocked maternity dresses in 2018.
25 Eva Longoria
We all remember Eva Longoria as the fashionable Gabi Solis in "Desperate Housewives," and she looked just as on trend when she was going around Hollywood this year in her maternity outfits. Eva always kept it chic and sassy, and she glowed with excitement as a first-time mom.
Eva, 43, welcomed her first child Santiago, in June. She and her husband Jose Baston are elated, and we've enjoyed watching her become a mom.
24 Khloe Kardashian
We all know that Khloe Kardashian's sister Kim, has struggled a bit in the maternity wear department. She's been on best dressed lists and worst dressed lists with her wardrobe choices. But in 2018 when it was Khloe's turn, we didn't see a fashion flop at all.
Khloe always rocked her maternity dresses, usually going with something a bit form-fitting that showed off her growing curves. She gave birth to daughter True, in April and snapped back to her usual amazing fashion moments right away.
23 Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson has always been on best dressed lists, and while we were surprised to learn that she was expecting baby No. 3 in 2018, we shouldn't have been surprised that she would continue to look her best.
Kate, who has a teenage son Ryder, and a 6-year-old Bing, gave birth to little Rani Rose, her child with Danny Fujikawa. Oh, and we have to mention her chic short haircut that she rocked while pregnant. It'll be interesting to see if she grows it out after having the baby.
22 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff's character on "Younger" is almost a modern day Carrie Bradshaw. And Hilary is a pretty amazing fashionista in her own right. So we were really curious how she would dress her baby bump when she announced her pregnancy in 2018.
Of course, Hilary always rocked it. She looked great in her glamorous clothes, but what we loved the most were the cute comfy dresses she wore while out and about around town. We can't wait to see how she will dress her daughter Banks Violet.
21 Carrie Underwood
As Carrie Underwood prepares to welcome baby No. 2, she has continued to grace us with her incredible voice — and her gorgeous fashion sense. While she mostly keeps it casual at home, we've seen Carrie looking amazing, rocking her baby bump on the red carpet at the Country Music Awards.
She's rocked some long and luxurious maternity dresses, but we love this short and sweet little number, which accentuates her bump perfectly. And we have to wonder if it's a boy because of the color.
20 Cardi B
Stories swirled about Cardi B being pregnant for months, and we love the way that she finally revealed the truth during a performance on Saturday Night Live. Her maternity dress was on point for the occasion, showing off her amazing shape in a form-fitting white dress.
Cardi has had some ups and downs in 2018, but the birth of her daughter Kulture was definitely a highlight. And her fashion remained at the top level the entire year.
19 Chrissy Teigen
One of our favorite celebrity moms is Chrissy Teigen, since the model and television host keeps it real. That's true in her fashion as well, as she was just as likely to give us a glimpse of her postpartum panties as her glamorous red-carpet looks.
One of our favorites was this dress from the Grammys, where she supported her husband John Legend. A few months later, in May, Chrissy and John welcomed baby Miles and their darling daughter Luna, became a big sister.
18 America Ferrera
We first met America Ferrara when she was wearing some pretty special jeans, but the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star dazzled us with her more high-fashion choices during her pregnancy in 2018. She rocked whatever she wore, but we really loved this dress, which she wore to a baby shower thrown by many of her famous friends.
America was the last of the sisterhood to become a mom, and it was lovely to see her former co-stars — as well as her "Ugly Betty" family — support her throughout her pregnancy. America and her husband Ryan Piers Williams, welcomed son Sebastian in May.
17 Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst was selling maternity wear in 2018, and we were certainly buying. The actress revealed her beautiful baby bump with this gorgeous portrait, an ad for merchandiser Rodarthe, and we absolutely love the ethereal look.
Kirsten met her fiance Jesse Plemmons, on the set of Fargo, and the two welcomed their son Ennis in May. And Kirsten was back to wowing us on red carpets just a few months later.
16 Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz is a classic beauty and an amazing actress. She has always looked chic and amazing on the red carpet, and that was no different in 2018, when she became pregnant at the age of 48.
We loved her simple, sophisticated dresses that she wore out and about town. But we expected nothing less from the Oscar winner, who is married to the man who plays James Bond. The couple welcomed a daughter in September.
15 Kat Von D
Pregnant or not, Kat Von D's fashion sense is unique. She loves black, although we saw a white maternity dress once. And she often goes for a vintage, goth vibe.
We love that Kat stuck true to herself when dressing the baby bump. She kept it simple and chic and goth and looked great doing it. And we're certain her style will remain now that little Leafar has arrived.
14 Kenya Moore
Former "Real Housewife" Kenya Moore is always looking good, so we were not surprised that she continued to look chic and sexy while dressing her baby bump in 2018.
Kenya became a first-time mom at 47, so she knew herself and was confident with her body, even as it changed through pregnancy. While Kenya had a rocky pregnancy, she rocked her look every time we saw her until she welcomed "miracle baby" Brooklyn in November.
13 Jinger Duggar Vuolo
If anyone is known for wearing dresses, it's the Duggar family, as the girls were kept from wearing anything but a dress or skirt until marriage. But probably our favorite fashionable girl among the bunch is Jinger.
Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo, were fun to watch on Counting On as they looked forward to the birth of their first child; and Jinger always rocked a cute maternity dress. They welcomed daughter Felicity, in July.
12 Ayesha Curry
Ayesha and Steph Curry have the cutest kids ever. We were so excited to learn that baby No. 3 was on the way in 2018, and Ayesha rocked it for the full nine months.
This pregnancy was tough, as Ayesha dealt with hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness. So much of the time she kept it casual. But when Ayesha turned it up, she rocked a maternity dress like no one's business. She and Steph welcomed son Canon, in July.
11 Kate Upton
Kate Upton has always been a fashion maven. And the model kept up her fashion sense while expecting her first child in 2018. She rocked her maternity wear regardless of the situation, but we especially loved this short athleisure dress that Kate sported while launching her own workout wear line.
Baby Genevieve came into the world in November, much to the joy of Kate and her husband Jason Verlander. And Kate looks gorgeous as a new mom, of course.
10 Hilaria Baldwin
Hilaria Baldwin has a lot of practice as a mom-to-be. We knew that she would look gorgeous while pregnant with her fourth child with Alec Baldwin, in 2018. Most of the time, we spotted the fitness guru in simple, comfortable maternity wear, but she shined when she went on a red carpet.
One of our favorite looks was this floral gown — much nicer than Kim K's floral look from the Met Gala several years ago. Hilaria brings her own chic style to it, and we approve. Alec and Hilaria welcomed their third son Romeo, in May.
9 Brigitte Nielsen
It's been a few decades since Brigitte Nielsen has been known for her fashion. But the former model still looks beautiful at 54. And we were reminded of why she was such a hot commodity in the '80s when she rocked her maternity fashion in 2018.
Brigitte was the star of "Red Sonja" and "Rocky IV," and she had a pretty high-profile reality TV relationship with Flavor Flav a decade or so ago. She said her fifth pregnancy in her 50s wasn't easy, but she was thrilled and glowed in her beautiful pastel dresses. She welcomed a healthy baby girl named Frida, in June.
8 Porsha Williams
Kenya Moore wasn't the only "Atlanta Housewife" to wow us with her maternity wear in 2018. Former co-star Porsha Williams also rocked a baby bump, pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley.
Porsha's maternity dresses reflected her glamorous style. Her outfits were always on point, and we have a bit longer to enjoy her maternity style, as Porsha's baby is due in January.
7 Claire Danes
When Claire Danes was pregnant in 2013, she often had to hide her baby bump on the set of her hit show Homeland. But when she was pregnant with baby No. 2 in 2018, she could fully embrace her bump.
Claire always leaves us in awe on the red carpet, and her chic maternity dresses in 2018 were no different. She always rocked her bump in gorgeous gowns. She and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed their second son in August.
6 Joanna Gaines
We fell in love with Joanna Gaines' design style, but the Fixer Upper star quickly grew into one of the biggest fashion inspos in clothes as well. When she announced she was expecting baby No. 5, we couldn't wait to see how she would dress her baby bump.
Joanna's dress style mirrors her designs. She likes things simple and crisp and beautiful like this dress, which she wore on the cover of her magazine Magnolia. Joanna and her husband Chip welcomed baby Crew, in June.
5 Miranda Kerr
When you are a model, the expectations for your fashion choices can be very high. But Miranda Kerr never disappoints, whether she is on the runway or walking the streets of New York.
Miranda debuted her baby bump at a Golden Globes after-party, and she continued to make statements throughout 2018. She always looked chic and gorgeous, often keeping her dresses snug to accentuate her growing bump. In May, Miranda welcomed her son Hart, with her Snapchat co-founder hubby Evan Speigel, joining big brother Finn, her son with Orlando Bloom.
4 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson had back-to-back babies in 2012 and 2013, and while she was always glowing, she struggled a bit with her maternity style, in part because she admittedly went a little far in her gain. But Jessica nailed it in 2018, when she got pregnant with a surprise baby No. 3.
Jessica has been looking very chic in her maternity dresses, such as this simple navy dress layered with a long sweater. She looks confident and happy, and that's the most important thing. Jessica and her husband Eric, are expecting their baby in spring 2019.
3 Jana Kramer
Jana Kramer's gone through a lot in the past several years, including five miscarriages. So when she was pregnant with Baby No. 2, she was so happy, and it showed in her smile.
The country singer always looked gorgeous, rocking her pregnancy style in 2018 whether she was on a red carpet or at a more casual event. The baby bump was always a gorgeous accessory, but the best part was always the way that she glowed. Jana and her husband Michael Cuassin welcomed their sone Jace, which means healing, in November.
2 Remy Ma
Rapper Remy Ma has had a big couple of years. She has exploded on the rap scene and gotten into the best shape of her life. And then she got pregnant! Remy has kept her hip hop style, but her maternity clothes have also had the glam and appeal that befits a pop culture queen.
Remy really rocked this short, glittery number before she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel's talk show, and as the baby bump grew, so did her style. Remy and her husband Papoose, welcomed their little girl not long before Christmas.
1 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner kept her maternity wear mostly under wraps in 2017. When she was spotted, she was usually sporting an oversized tee or a bulky sweatshirt. But we got a glimpse of a few cute figure-hugging dresses in the video she dropped about her pregnancy a few days after giving birth.
Kylie seems to have stuck with her signature color of black, but it was great to see her show off the baby bump, even if she kept it from us until 2018. Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed little Stormi, in early 2018, and they both have dazzled us with their style ever since.
