Where Does Fergie's Maternity Style Fall On a Scale From Mild to Wild?

When we heard that Fergie was expecting a baby Black Eyed Pea, we were on the edge of our seats waiting to see how the famously funky star‘s maternity style would play out. Luckily she didn’t keep us waiting long, stepping out with husband Josh Duhamel Tuesday in a shearling bomber jacket, yellow sweater dress and circular sunglasses.

“It’s clear to see how happy they are,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. “They are really excited.” And we are really excited to see how her outfits fit into the range of maternity style — from low-key to high-wattage — that we’ve been spotting from L.A. to London.

On the “mild” end of the spectrum is the Duchess of Cambridge (left), who has dressed her barely-there bump in conservative coats and this elegant Max Mara wrap dress.

A little wilder is Jessica Simpson, wearing a pink jacket with Jessica Simpson Maternity leggings, who sticks to the same styles she favors even when not pregnant (blazers, maxis and sky-high heels) but isn’t shy about putting her fuller curves on display with plunging V-necks.

And on the far end of the “mild to wild”-o-meter: Kim Kardashian, of course, who has put her bump on display in feathers, crop tops, mesh, sequins and sheer numbers — including this onesie pantsuit.

As it turns out, these stars’ maternity style isn’t so different from how they dressed pre-baby … which makes us even more excited to see how the rest of their pregnancy wardrobe will go. Tell us: Who’s the best-dressed mom-to-be?

Kate is the only only one that looks stylish and classy.

Out of these four it will be Kate by a longshot on a daily basis.

Nicole on

Kim K looks horrific. Sorry but that outfit does NOTHING for her.

Sally on

Kate- she is classy and stylish. The other three wish they looked like her.

Debra on

Princess Kate always looks classy and beautiful. I would JS looks nice and pretty but KK is going to trip on those ridiculous pants and Fergie can do better! All the ladies are lovely but some are not putting their best foot forward.

anne on

“Famously funky”? She looks like an unmade bed most of the time. The only pregnant woman you show that looks like someone decent and normal is Kate.

Guest on

I would wear Kate style pregnant or not but I love Fergie being a little Rock n Roll!

Mel on

Fergie is about 3 seconds pregnant. I doubt these are even maternity clothes. How can her fashion choices be judged as such?

Nadine on

Kate by a LONG LONG LONG shot!

Janessa on

Kate of course is the best. And Kim of course is the worst! Kim is still trying to be Ms. Sexpot when she is pregnant! Who does that? Oh yeah someone who is only known for their looks and has no talent that’s who!
