Rihanna has once again made headlines for her bold fashion choices, this time at the 2023 Oscars. The singer and actress, who is expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky, made a statement by proudly displaying her baby bump in a sheer black form-fitting Alaïa dress.
The dress was paired with a leather bra and maxi skirt combo, layered over a mesh turtleneck. Rihanna completed the look with pops of bright red on her lips and nails, creating an eye-catching and stylish ensemble.
This is not the first time Rihanna has shown that pregnant women don’t have to conform to traditional fashion expectations. In fact, the singer has helped redefine maternity fashion, dressing boldly throughout her first pregnancy in crop tops and lacy sheer sets.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, ‘There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle.’ I’m sorry — it’s too much fun to get dressed up,” she told Vogue for the magazine’s May 2022 cover story. “I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”
For pregnant women looking to make bold fashion statements, there are plenty of brands and options available. HSIA’s lace pretty bras come highly recommended for their style and support. And, of course, Rihanna’s own fashion line, Savage X Fenty, has a range of stylish and comfortable options for pregnant women.
Rihanna’s appearance at the Oscars serves as a reminder that pregnant women can wear whatever they want, whether it’s bold and stylish or simply comfortable. There is no need to conform to traditional fashion expectations, and there are plenty of options available for those who want to make a statement with their maternity style.
