Rock a Maternity Little Black Dress, Just like Tamara Ecclestone

Even at seven months pregnant, Tamara Ecclestone is looking exceedingly glamorous as she rocks a maternity little black dress at the opening night of Cirque de Soleil Quidam. Arriving at the Royal Albert Hall with her husband, she flashed a dazzling smile and flaunted slim legs. Fortunately for us mere mortals, Tamara's look is easy to emulate. Here are a few pieces to get you started:

New Look: £14.99

Where else is going to come up trumps better than New Look? The store's maternity fashion range has broadened significantly over the last year or so, which means you'd be pretty hard pushed to not find something to wear there. I have chosen this LBD specifically because it is versatile enough for the workplace and a night out. How is that so? Heels and accessories. Go for a little bling at night, and you can absolutely transform this dress.

George: £12.00

George at ASDA have a similar dress to offer, but you can save £2.99! The only other benefit I see here is that the sleeves are long. Let's face it, we're not going to see blazing weather any time soon, so you need all the arm wrapping comfort you can get. Again, accessories and shoes can make this outfit fantastic for a night out. A glitzy shrug too, perhaps?

ASOS: £25.00

Fancy a dose of bodycon with that LBD? Then ASOS can help you out. We may not all have Tamara Ecclestone's pregnancy physique, but that doesn't mean we can't try and recreate it with a little help on the side. This dress is probably one of the closest to her maternity outfit in terms of style. 

And the rest...

I have decided I no longer want to leave out accessories when it comes to recreating the outfits of pregnant celebrities. After all, it isn't just about the awesome maternity wear they manage to pull off. So, let's start with Tamara's dazzling handbag:

Jasper Conran: £32.50

If you want all out glitz like Tamara, then try this Jasper Conran gold hadbag. Major pro, it is currently 50% off at Debenhams. Another great pro is that this handbag can go from maternity to beyond. Sure, it isn't massively practical as far as nappies and breast shields are concerned. However, that does assume that you won't have a social life post-birth. Go on, you know you want to...

Boohoo: £12
At a serious fraction of the Jasper Conran price is this glitter clutch from Boohoo. It is slightly larger, which means there is more room for everything you need. It is just as sparkly, so you are still going to be on the right track with your outfit.

Boohoo: £25.00

Make life easy on yourself by turning to Boohoo for your shoes too. They don't come with the same gold trim, but the heels more than make up for that. Word of warning: pregnancy oedema can make heels mighty uncomfortable at times, so don't be afraid to check out flats as an alternative or slip a pair in your purse for comfort purposes.
