While she may not be able to buy Heidi Klum’s maternity designs yet, that isn’t stopping Amy Adams from looking fabulous during her pregnancy, thanks to designer Carolina Herrera! reports that the designer is reworking pieces from her current collections to create a custom-made wardrobe for the lucky mom-to-be. The Leap Year star tells that “They made my clothes for the entire press tour. They’re amazing. They did such a great job.” And the actress is wasting no time debuting her new sophisticated maternity pieces. On Jan. 4, Amy wore an aqua wool crepe dress for an appearance on Good Morning America. One day later, she stylishly stepped out in a gray mélange belted coat with red satin trim paired with a silk mulberry dress for a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman. Last night, the Leap Year star looked ravishing in a ‘lava red’ silk georgette dress at the movie’s premiere. What a fashionable baby bump! Tell us: What do you think of Amy’s red carpet maternity style?

Gorgeous. Come on maternity stores, sell clothes that look fabulous!

Nothing wrong with JC Penney or how about Pea in a Pod & Motherhood Maternity.
Must be nice to have designer maternity wear!!!

I guarante that she didn’t pay for the clothes. They are probably loaned to her as WONDERFUL press for her line. She is being outfitted for her job, but lucky her she gets to wear beautiful gowns. I’m SURE she’s not wearing these beautiful designs every minute of the day. Ladies, we’re supposed to support eachother, not tear eachother down. You look GREAT Amy!!

Haha – She is putting back into the economy.. its called marketing. people see what shes wearing, and they BUY it, from another person who owns a company and has employees who pay taxes.. its all relative, whether you spend at target or on designers! And that has nothing to do with your party preference!

Leslie-who cares what you gained while you were pregnant, and who cares what Amy Adams gains while she is pregnant.

Amy looks seems like a beautiful person inside and out, if she chooses to wear designer clothes for her premire or all day every day who cares.

As a pregnant woman I can tell you that Target clothes fit poorly and are made so cheaply that I never buy them. Buy things that will hold up and make you feel good. A lot of us have to work while we are pregnant and look good (or as good as we can) every day. Give her a break she is just a working mom trying to do the best she can!

Wow! What is with all the mean, negative comments??? Ladies, jealous much??? Amy Adams is awesome and she deserves to look great. Meow!!! Put your claws away!

Amy Adams is not a public servant (or wannabe, like She Who Will Not Be Named–starts with a “P”); she is not using taxpayer or partisan dollars to fund her wardrobe. She is under no obligation to wear Target or Walmart just to suit your ideas of sartorial democracy.

If you must know, I bet Adams sometimes shops at Target. I bet Herrera does, too. Target is a great store.

That said, All Things Aspire To Beauty (Keats? I may be dead wrong), and high expertise in design and dressmaking is relevant, for the result makes a woman (here, granted, already beautiful)yet more beautiful. Elegance is never out of reach for any of us, but we do need ideals. We do need examples (very rare today), and to this end, the collaboration between Herrera and Adams I find current, elegant, refreshing and instructive.

Amy is Glowing on

Sara – let me guess, you’re an angry preachy Conservative? How is that for stereotyping? And how on Earth did you manage to make her comment political?

LOVE Amy’s wardrobe – that’s most Mommy to Be’s dream come true.

VickieC – let me guess… you’re a liberal? Those who EARN their money should be able to spend it however they want. They earned it. Do you want someone judging you and telling you how to spend your money?

AAGGHH! What does anyone’s politics have to do with anything? And what business is it of anyone besides Amy and her physician how much weight she gains? I had 2 bio children and gained 20 pounds with each pregnancy and wore my pre-pregnancy clothes home from the hospital; in fact a nurse tried to kick me off the floor because visiting hours were over and she thought I was a visitor, I was so slender. What does that have to do with Amy Adams and her clothes? Her clothes look great, she looks adorable, I got free maternity clothes from friends and bought the rest wherever I could afford to, and I think most other people do the same. Why be so critical?

I agree with Sarah and GLW, they work for their money just like you do, they can spend it any way they want. It isn’t her “job” to stimulate the economy. Just because she has more money doesn’t mean she should feel guilty for it, or buy of the rack when she can afford otherwise. Doesn’t it make you feel good when you splurge on something that looks especially nice? S- “let the people working at the store keep their jobs, the people who make clothes keep their jobs.” Well, they aren’t her problem. She has no obligation to anyone to “let them keep their jobs” just because she has money.
