How Would YOU Wear It? Garcelle Beauvais

I don't normally like to cap on pregnant women because I can only imagine how hard it is to find stylish and flattering maternity wear. But allow me to go there with actress Garcelle Beauvais because this is one of the least flattering maternity ensembles I've seen in a while.

Let's start with the dress. I love the emerald jewel tone but the silk fabric makes her look super shiny and draws too much attention to her midsection. The tie-neck is also really distracting. If I were Garcelle, I would have worn a sleeveless dress to show off those slender arms and to take the attention off her tummy. I would have kept the gold clutch as it's chic and the tights as they're slimming. Those shoes are a bit confusing but they're the least of her worries.

How would YOU wear it?

Horrid look, she looks like she stuffed a pillow under that tunic, instead of looking like she is really pregnant. The satin material is really unflattering and it doesnt help that she puts her hands like that under her bulge.

I would not wear a satin formfitting dress, or at least if it was satin it would be a short empire waist dress with a low neckline. I would also lose the tights and wear some black low kitten heels or a black platform sandal with straps .

Take off the sash and tie it just under her breasts, creating an empire waist.

Wow...she usually looks great, but this is very unflattering on so many levels...

It makes her stomach stick out horribly and make it look a lot wider than it really is. I would change the dress completely but still keep the color and the gold clutch but everything else is just baad.

the dress is just awful. it would look just as bad on a non-preggers person!

It does look as if she's hidden a pillow under there. Wouldn't wear the dress at all--it does nothing for her.

It's pretty bad. Maybe a big belt would have at least helped the tummy area.

I dont like the tie neck..it's just in the way..Get rid of the sleeves too..so looks like a large emerald - i don't know.. I agree with Amanda-La, flat shoes perhaps? Her feet look swollen..She's just lost in the world of green & black.. :(

It looks like she has some sort of pillow under there. I think in order to define the preggo belly she could have at least used a skinny belt to create and empire waist. As for the shoes...maybe some black flats for comfort?

ew. She looks like she's wearing a fAKE pregnant belly because of the fabric. soft not shiny fabrics are best. The closest they should go is maybe tafetta if it's worn correctly.great color, bad shape of the hem. it makes her look like she's trying to wear a mini dress over some serious pudge.
