DWTS Samantha Harris's Maternity Style Secrets

05/22/2007 at 01:30 PM ET

Dancing With The Stars host Samantha Harris faces a problem many pregrant women struggle with: how to look good in a gown when you’re dressing for two? But luckily for her, Samantha has a little bit more help than the rest of us. “I have a stylist who finds these great clothes for me,” Samantha tells PEOPLE. “We look for affordable things that are available to viewers. We know what’s working because I get a ton of emails asking me about the dresses.” Gowns, like David Meister’s purple satin stunner and BCBG’s black and white confection, top out around $600. And what’s underneath those glam gowns? Spanx, of course — Samantha wears Mama Footless, a shaping maternity hose, $28 or Power Mama, a mid-thigh shaper, $32 at spanx.com. And don’t miss her show-stopping look on tonight’s finale, including a dazzling $5 million of diamonds from jeweler Jeffrey Rackover.

Why so many maternity posts?

Cryptkeeper on

At last, a pregnant woman with class. A woman who knows how to look good. She looks fantastic. There a number of other women who should take a lesson from this lady.

glad on

like the dresses…really cute but c’mon that lady does not know what she is doing in the show !
is she really famous??

Sami on

Samantha looks awesome! She is glowing and looks classy and beautiful with the selected gowns! You go Girl!

j on

so the ‘secret’ is that she has a stylist and unlimited resources to look good. OH. shhhh–don’t tell anyone else.

Mia on

I think she is beautiful and will look pretty in anything she wears. I really like the black and white confection gown..it is really flattering!

faith on


she is also not nine months pregnant.

Summer on

Yawn! I’m sure I would be interested in I watched the show. Sounds like someone, death becomes them, has something against pregnant women. If you’ve never carried a child full term and lived with that LARGER than life belly on you, then don’t knock fashion choices of pregnant woman. Until you’ve been there, you have NO idea!

rachel on

she always looks nice and lady like. she dosen’t need anything more.

Hannah on

She looks amazing but c’mon, $600 for a dress for the average woman is NOT what I consider affordable!

Mary on

That’s true, faith. You can barely tell that she is pregnant. Cryptkeeper doesn’t seem to understand that as your pregnancy progresses, you get huge and it becomes harder to look good in your clothes (s/he totally bashed Naomi Watts yesterday).

faith on

i know mary. i responded to those comments about naomi earlier today.

This woman whomever she may be looks great. She has class. Class is something that can be projected regardless of ones size or income. One can look very classy at every stage of one’s pregnancy by choosing appropriate apparel. This woman seems to have the knack of looking great, and hopefully will maintain her fabulous style even when large and uncomfortable. It can and has been done. Keep it up Miss Samantha Haris, whoever you might be.

Danyiel on

As a woman who is 29 weeks pregnant ( but looking 32 weeks) to be able to look that good would be nice. I think she does a really good job at looking very nice in what she wears, yes it helps to have a stylist but still all of us wish we could look that good.

Elda on

the purple dress is to die for!!!

diane on

Need to know what who was the designer of last night’s gown on Samantha Harris.

Kim on

What the hell is SPANX doing designing maternity pantyhose that “shape” a pregnant woman? A pregant woman’s shape is beautiful! It’s the one time in our lives that we can actually be proud of gaining weight instead of having to feel terrible about it! I sure hope women aren’t wearing these thinking they have to worry about how big their thighs look when they are squishing their unborn baby!

Flyhigh on

Too many pregnant women look as if they have been hit by a semi- they’re sloppy,fat and use pregnancy as a bravery symbol and then turn into super-moms.
PLEASE LADIES! You’re not just a mom that wears mom jeans.You’re a WOMAN,a wife,a professional.
Wear cute clothes,eat healthy for your and the baby’s sake,get off sodas and exercise (Pilates for pregnant women,walks,massages for pregnant women).Don’t use $$$ as an excuse: it costs just as much to buy healthy stuff and walks are free!
It doesn’t matter how big you are,you can still look fabulous!
