The latest mums and mums-to-be on the Academy Awards red carpet
All eyes were on the Oscars last night (22nd March). And we think the celeb baby bumps really stole the show, with a bumper crop of famous mums-to-be – and a fair few mums of newborns – strutting their stuff on the red carpet this year.
Keira Knightley (above), nominated for Best Supporting Actress, stayed loyal to her floaty, feminine pregnancy style, wearing a flowing, peach, floor-length Valentino gown, embroidered with delicate flowers and handwritten-effect words from French poems.
She wore her hair in loose waves, with a centre parting and a delicate headband.
Also spotted on the red carpet were newlywed Sophie Hunter (with husband Benedict Cumberbatch), The Great Gatsby star Isla Fisher, and model and actress Molly Sims, looking amazing at 9 months’ pregnant.
New mums Zoe Saldana and Rosamund Pike posed for the cameras, too – in figure-hugging dresses that shouted, ‘What do you mean, I had a baby mere weeks ago?’
Click through to see Sophie’s, Molly’s and Isla’s bump-tastic Oscar dresses – and Zoe’s and Rosamund’s amazing post-bump gowns, too…
Isla give birth soon
Actress Isla Fisher’s baby is due in April and she looked amazing as she arrived at the ceremony with husband Sacha Baron Cohen arrived at the ceremony.
Wearing a floor-length cream gown, emblazoned down the sides with blue flowers, that clung to her beautiful, heavily pregnant curves, the Great Gatsby actress partied at the Vanity Fair Oscar bash and posed for a photo with Jennifer Aniston, who kissed her bump for the cameras.
Cumberbaby just about on show
Newlyweds Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch looked super-happy as they posed for pics on the red carpet.
Sophie opted for a long, red silk number that showed just a hint of the Cumberbump – and got fashion commentators reaching for words such as ‘risqué’ as they glimpsed the thigh split and ‘safety pins’ up each side. Not for her the floaty pregnancy look – so far – then!
Molly Sims, 9 months pregnant, looked fabulous in a figure-hugging sapphire blue gown and high heels.
The US actress tweeted earlier in the evening: “Babygirl and I are ready @VanityFair #9months #almostthere.”
Zoe’s post-baby body
We can only imagine the pressure that Hollywood mums feel to bounce back to their pre-baby shapes. New mum Zoe Saldana only gave birth to twins Cy and Marco 3 months ago, but she really rocked the Oscars carpet in a figure-hugging peach gown.
Rosamund’s red hot dress
Not to be outdone by Zoe, Rosamund Pike, whose son Atom was born a mere 12 weeks ago, wore an equally tight-fitting red number to the awards.
