She’s always been one of the best dressed on the red carpet.
And Keira Knightley has continued her fab fashion choices into pregnancy, whether she’s wearing Giambattista Valli florals at BAFTAs or taking over Award Season in “comfortable” clothes.
As Keira celebrates her 30th birthday today, we’re celebrating with her marvellous maternity pics.
1. Keira’s Plunging Maternity Fashion
Mums-to-be, make note: just because you’re with bump doesn’t mean you can’t take the plunge.
Keira showed off some skin in a plunge neck, black Valentino Haute Couture gown at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party at the Wallis Annenberg Centre for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.
Her maternity outfit for the party in February 2015 was her most daring fashion choice yet, and surely one of her best. She looks pretty happy with her choice too. Just check out that grin.
2. Keira’s Flower Power Maternity Fashion
At the Oscars itself in February 2015 Keira also opted for Valentino Haute Couture, but went for a lighter number in this stunning gown from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
In addition to the flowers, words from poetry were embroidered onto the dress worthy of a fairy queen, and the actress topped off the fairy world look with a glittering hairband.
3. Keira’s Lacy Layers Maternity Fashion
For the Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA in January 2015, Keira draped lots of lovely lace layers over her baby bump in this purple Erdem gown. It also looks like a bit of a practice run for the plunging neckline she went for at Vanity Fair, but with the comfort blanket of a sheer panel.
It was at the SAGs that Keira revealed to E! News her maternity style rules, explaining that she’s “not going to wear anything tight” and instead opt for “quite loose” and comfortable outfits.
She was also planning to kick off her high heels later too, saying: “I can kind of go, ‘well I’m pregnant, so my shoes have to come off and nobody is allowed to say anything which is nice.’” Result.
4. Keira’s Bridal Maternity Fashion
Keira’s actual Wedding dress was a short Chanel number, but the actress got to play out the bridal fun of a long train at the Critics’ Choice Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in January 2015.
She wore a pretty pale blue Delpozo dress with a Peter Pan collar and a looooong flowing train.
5. Keira’s Butterfly Maternity Fashion
Keira has worn Chanel during Award Season, of course, and this butterfly-and-bug creation she wore to the Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in January 2015 is one of the best.
The tiered gown was custom-made, with Keira revealing on the E! Red Carpet telecast that it took 30 people a whole week to make it, adding: “I want to say thank you to those 30 people.”
Her hubby James Righton was by her side at the Globes, as he has been throughout Award Season.
Keep showing us how marvellous maternity fashion can be Keira, and we’ll keep wishing we had your clothes budget (and that pregnancy glow, too).
