We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Fergie, whose maternity wear is starting to rival Kim Kardashian’s:

Fergie, babe, what’s going here? Are you channeling Stevie Nicks at a Johnny Cash benefit down at SXSW?

Dare I say it, but good gosh this is far too much black for my liking. And you know that’s pretty severe coming from someone who wears all black all the time.

You know what it is? It’s the fact you have too many layers going on here. I get it that you’re pregnant and trying to either conceal a (not-even-showing) baby bump or trying not to show too much skin, but c’mon: you need to reveal a little here.

You appear as though you are one endless canvas of black from the neck down with the exception of your (holy hell I love them) boots. Ditch the sheer witchy-cloaky thingy and show off those toned arms of yours and a little leg. You’re Fergie for crying out loud!

I’m not sure what time of day this photo was taken, but you look a bit washed out. I think a little pop of color on the lips would have been wise and a quick wisp of some blush would take you from drab to fab.

And good God girl, get some volumizing mousse and a teasing comb! Your bedhead looks like real bedhead and not in the good bedhead kind of way if you know what I mean. Is there a licensed cosmetologist in the house?! We need one STAT!

Fergie is a pop star, she looks great.

She took the words right out of my mouth with the Stevie Nicks reference. Before I even read the article I turned to my friend and said “What is she going for here? Stevie Nicks?” lol

I think Tabatha needs to follow her own advice, and stop dishing it out.

this is more normal than the tight clothes we see most of the youngsters wearing today. that growing belly places a lot of pressure on the rest of the body. the last thing I wanted to do was place added pressure on myself by wearing binding clothes. loose is SO much more comfortable when pregnant! good for her for being practical and not giving in to the likes of creeps like this who write such garbage.

Fergie is one unattractive woman…how Josh Duhamel ended up with her is beyond me! I love Tabatha…

She has the tackiest taste!

I actually kind of like this outfit.
