Maggie Gyllenhaal's Pregnancy Style

08/10/2006 at 01:17 PM ET

Have you seen these photos of Maggie Gyllenhaal at the recent premieres of World Trade Center and Trust the Man? She’s seven months pregnant and, wow, she looks phenomenal. At right, she’s wearing a low-cut, navy chiffon, tea-length dress by Zac Posen– and, uh, clearly she’s embracing her new cleavage. An asymmetrical braided hairstyle, intriguing earrings and killer YSL pumps finish her look. The copper Marni dress she is wearing on the left is equally stunning and stylish. Most pregnant stars cut loose from looking good during their nine months- blame it on taking a hiatus from work and their stylists. In Britney Spears’ case, I say we start a charity fund and hire that stylist back for her!

I can’t imagine Maggie in a cutesy “I’ve Got the Golden Ticket” tank top or a “Bun in the Oven” oversized tee. In fact, I find her commitment to style pretty inspiring, especially when she’s battling stretch marks and pregnancy heartburn. I’m curious if she can somehow keep it up even during these oh-so-trying ankle-swelling last months before the baby arrives. What do you think? Can she make it without one big fashion slip up? —Alison Gee

I think that the blue dress looks fabulous on her – there is great contrast between the colour of her dress and her glowing skin. The gold dress/robe thing doesn’t look so great though. But she does look good for being 7 months pregnant!

The copper Marni dress is definitely a 10 on Maggie. I hope she would wear more of this type of color, rich, earthy. Something like gold or rich brown, and not just during her pregnancy. The blue dress is pretty, but not exactly made for her. Please stay away from somber looking color like this.

Monique – You obviously aren’t in the right day and age to make the comment “it much more tasteful to be married and then pregnant”. Would you rather her have an abortion because she wasn’t married? Get with the times. People get pregnant all the time without being married. Not being married doesn’t make you any less of a women or a mother.

P.S. Love Maggie in the blue dress, she looks radiant.

UH HELLO….HOLLYWOOD!!!! Who cares if baby comes before marriage. Hollywood lives by their own rules and morals and just because we disagree doesn’t mean we should judge. This is an entertainment magazine that chronicles the lifestyles of the rich and famous. If you so strongly disagree with the morals of the people in and creating the magazine then don’t read the magazine! Comment on the fashion, not the character of these people!

I just wanted to say that I think that Maggie looks stunning in the blue dress (which seems to be a general concensus), even more so because it DOES NOT hug every part of her body. When pregnant, an empire waist is the way to go because the material under the waist flows beautifully over the belly, and still shows the world how proud you are to have a baby coming without leaving little to the imagination.

I love pregnant Maggie, shes so lovely, but usually dresses frumply, pregnancy is agreeing with her, and I have to say I agree with Deanna, but I dont think too many will listen to her. Please excuse my horrible spelling, I can never seemed to remember my junior high learning lol

Personally, the navy blue dress is cute but the gold one is a little un flattering even if she is pregnant.

The blue looks really good on her. The gold thing is just awful.

She looks beautiful and glowing keep up the good work.

I have to admire a 7 months pregnant woman who can wear high heels! I agree that the gold outfit is a little odd, but in general she looks wonderful. It’s hard to make yourself look pretty when you’re that far gone into a pregnancy, probably feel awful, and are having to run around – making public appearances nonetheless. Good going.

BTW to those making remarks about Maggie needing to get married before the baby comes. Welcome to 2006. It’s not 1956. And it’s none of your business anyway. This blog is about fashion, not about life choices.
