Pregnant? Moi? In celebville, being 'with-child' is no obstacle to looking good
Victoria Beckham and Rachel Zoe prove that being pregnant is not all about tracksuit bottoms and cream buns.
Many women look upon pregnancy as the one time in their adult life that they can relax the rules a little on the fashion and beauty routine.
Anything with an elasticated waist is automatically deemed a 'new season must-have'; it is suddenly OK to order a dessert (what's a couple of extra pounds when you already look like Orca?); and overnight it becomes borderline acceptable to rock an Ugg boot.
But celebrities are not like normal folk. When the soundtrack to your life is the 'pop' of paparazzi bulbs and champagne corks, no matter if you're in the family way, when it comes to looking good, you better bring-it!
Witness Britain's premier 'living doll' Victoria Beckham, who caught a flight from London to Los Angeles at the weekend, wearing a pair of 6.5inch Christian Louboutin platforms, and spray-on jeans. Five months pregnant with her first daughter, VB seized the chance to commence some in utero fashion training for her invisi-bump. Heaven forefend the little darling should grow up thinking that it's ever acceptable to opt for comfort over style!
Meanwhile, in Beverly Hills, nine months pregnant super-stylist, Rachel Zoe, was pounding the pavements in 6inch Brian Atwood leopard print platform boots.
Platforms? Ha! What a pair of cheaters!
Come on girls, put some effort in.
