Designers Create Custom Maternity Clothes For Kate Middleton
With Kate Middleton's baby bump finally showing, there comes a flurry of designers vying to dress her. And, according to WWD, they're more than willing to create custom maternity clothes for the expecting Duchess of Cambridge, too. Karl Lagerfeld, Nina Ricci, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan were among the designers to submit exclusive sketches, supplying a cool mix of daytime looks and more royally geared evening gowns, all tailored to highlight her bump.
To date, Middleton hasn't exactly been the poster child for wearing maternity clothes, having only worn one Topshop maternity outfit since her pregnancy was announced last year. Instead, she has opted to recycle her preexisting wardrobe with looks from Erdem, Mulberry, Armani, Max Mara, and Tara Jarmon — pieces that will remain wearable after the baby is born. Practicality aside, these designer sketches are undeniably fun. Click through to see them all, and tell us which design you like best in the comments below.
