Is it just me, or is half of Hollywood pregnant these days? With this weekend's addition of Angelina Jolie to the confirmed (more or less) pregnant list, we're in for a spring full of fabulous maternity fashions. Mommy-to-be Gwen Stefani-- arguably the biggest fashionista of the expecting list-- was recently spotted out and about in a flowing boho-chic maxi dress. Stunning, as always, Gwen.
As to be expected, Gwen is taking a page from the current anti-maternity clothes trend. Just like fellow expectant mom Jessica Alba, Gwen is fond of wearing forgiving "regular" clothes rather than traditional maternity wear. Want to steal Gwen Stefani's boho-chic, anti-maternity maxi dress style? No need to be with child. She's wearing the new Long Ruffle Dress from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent.

I adore this dress on so many levels. First, and most obviously, it's quite forgiving. Whether you are with child, or with a few extra pounds, or just feeling a little bloated, this dress will glide over all of your trouble areas with ease. But, it carefully avoids that shapeless, potato sack look that is so easy to find with long dresses.
Beyond that, it's incredibly stylish and of the moment. Maxi dresses are going to be big for Spring and this dressier, 100% silk version is the kind of frock that will take you from poolside party to Sunday brunch without skipping a beat. I'd pair it with flat sandals and loose, wavy hair for an upscale bohemian vibe.
