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.”

I feel like she has been pregnant for 5 years.

Ann, is there anything she could do that would be okay with you, or are you the typical “hater” and have no real reason to dislike this person you don’t even know? She’s a pregnant woman in those last couple of weeks during which you just WISH the baby would come and you could finally look in your baby’s face. She’s kind of an open book, and has a quirky sense of humor; why do we think it’s cute for some, and not for others? Jessica is like a real, live person, and no tackier than most celebs we see.

I’m not hating but darn hasn’t she been pregnant forever? Sheesh!!

Isn’t the right word Kaftan? I think people spell it with a C but K is more traditional…

Daia S. on

She is really dumb.

That’s all she has to worry about? Maybe she should be making wedding plans instead.
