Forget about a hospital gown.

When it comes time to welcome her little girl into the world, soon-to-be mom Jessica Simpson hopes to make a fashionable first impression.

“I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital,” the Fashion Star mentor, who’s expecting her first child with fiancĂ© Eric Johnson at the end of the month, Tweeted Tuesday. “Fabulous!! Now I need to find one!” May we offer some suggestions?

QVC has two suitable options: a Dennis Basso caftan (above, left) complete with beaded neckline (on sale for $44.86) and another — appropriately in petites! — by Joan Rivers (above, right, on sale for $33.36).

ASOS has its own offering, an asymmetrical Helene Berman kaftan with a V neckline and wide-cut bracelet-length sleeves (on sale for $87.26). And for something a bit fancier, there’s Natori’s floor-length option from Neiman Marcus (also on sale, $81).

Simpson, who’s taken maternity style to new heights throughout her pregnancy — often rocking heels — recently refuted rumors she had already given birth.

“I’m still pregnant!!” Simpson, who celebrated her dream baby shower in March, Tweeted to fans. “Don’t believe what you read ladies and gents.”

Believe me when it comes time to deliver that baby she is not going to care what she looks like!She is going to want to get there and be done and have it over! You can tell she has never birthed a baby…..worrying about being fashionable in the delivery room.. too funny.

I saw the words “Jessica Simpson” and “birth” in the headline on the homepage, and I immediately thought, “she’s finally given birth!”

but then I actually read the headline and realized…we’re just talking about it. Again.

lol I like Jessica but it feels like this baby is just never going to get out of there!

BH- she doesn’t have to get married because she’s having a baby, this is 2012 not 1912.

I like jessica, but now she is getting ridiculous. What if she has to have an emergency c-section (i hope not) but you never know.

Tia- that’s not necessarily true, with my first I actually bought a pink hospital gown to wear and I had my sister doing my hair when i first got to the hospital so it would look okay in pics. Some women do still care what they look like even when they’re been in labor for 13 hours.

give birth in the leopard dress, tiger dress or in 9 inch heels with a prom dress, just do it! we have been hearing every aspect of this pregnancy for what seems like years!!!!

Jessica said one of her biggest worries was that her daughter would be an athlete and not want to shop with her. Need I say more? IDIOT.
