The term "maternity clothes" might bring to mind oversized T-shirts and loose-fitting pants. But over the years, celebrities have proven that pregnancy can also be glamorous. In the '90s, stars like Pauletta Washington and Jada Pinkett Smith began to wear stunning maternity gowns on the red carpet. In more recent years, Ashley Graham and Blake Lively have become pregnancy-fashion icons. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Pauletta Washington rocked a yellow maternity dress on the red carpet in 1991.
Her off-the-shoulder dress had a sparkling neckline, which perfectly matched her gold kitten heels and short necklace. Jada Pinkett Smith put a '90s spin on classic pregnancy attire.
Her red-carpet look included a strapless black dress, velvet boots, and a long-sleeved jacket made from silk. In 2007, Jennifer Lopez glowed in a white, floor-length gown.
Her flowing dress had a single strap placed across her shoulder, as well as a pleated skirt. Angelina Jolie looked stunning in green the following year.

Her blue-and-purple dress had rolled up sleeves and layers of fabric underneath its skirt. She completed the look with a yellow undershirt and bright-blue sneakers. Hours before announcing her pregnancy, Beyoncé cradled her baby bump on the red carpet.
Her single-sleeved orange gown was designed by Lanvin. She later switched into a sparkling purple suit for a performance during MTV's Video Music Awards, and announced her pregnancy to the world by rubbing her belly onstage. Kim Kardashian West chose a long-sleeved, floral-print gown for the 2013 Met Gala.
Though she looked stunning in the Givenchy maternity dress — which also had a thigh-high slit — many people weren't fans of the look. Some even turned the outfit into a meme, which made Kardashian West cry, according to the television star. Kerry Washington experimented with cutouts at the 2016 Emmy Awards.
She donned a strapless black gown from Brandon Maxwell. It had two angled cutouts across the waist, and also featured a thin cape, which draped across Washington's back down to the floor. In 2016, Chrissy Teigen walked the Oscars red carpet in a floral maternity gown from Marchesa.

From its ruffled shoulders to its skirt train, Beyoncé's long-sleeved gown was covered in red sparkles. The dress, designed by Peter Dundas, also had a square-shaped neckline that showcased her long jewel necklace. Eva Longoria donned a more casual look at the Costume Designers Guild Awards in 2018.
She wore the silk maternity dress under a long coat made from another shiny material, and completed the look with see-through sandals. Cardi B wore a showstopping Moschino ensemble to the 2018 Met Gala.
Her maternity gown was covered in jewels, from its scoop-style neckline to the bottom of its skirt. The dress also had a thigh-high slit, and was complimented by bedazzled gloves, an oversized headpiece, and a silk train attached to the waist. Hilary Duff went for a more casual maternity style that year.
While in New York, she paired a red-and-blue minidress with velvet pink pumps. Duff also wore delicate jewelry, and let her hair hang loose around her face. Though she wasn't in the movie, Blake Lively stole the show at the "Pokémon Detective Pikachu" premiere.
Her yellow sequined midi dress was designed by Retrofête, and had a daring slit on the right side of its skirt. A matching belt was also tied loosely above her baby bump. Krysten Ritter rocked a red ruffled dress at a screening of "Jessica Jones" in May 2019.
Her Rodarte x Universal Standard dress had a sweetheart neckline, ruched sleeves, and a ruffled skirt. She completed the look with shiny red pumps that had straps across each ankle. Anne Hathaway walked the red carpet in August 2019 wearing a fuchsia maternity dress with daring cutouts.
Her sleeveless, high-neck dress was designed by Brandon Maxwell, who incorporated a nod to Hathaway's pregnancy in the fabric, adding a white tag that read "Anne + 1" inside her dress. One of Ashley Graham's first maternity looks was a form-fitting dress made from red latex.
