This Is How Beyonce Does Maternity Wear


Beyonce is one busy lady: she’s got an album to promote, a fragrance to launch and a messiah to birth. …But the tiny superhuman developing in her womb will not stymie Bey’s fabulousness: behold, the singer showed up to launch her fragrance Pulse at The Dream in Manhattan wearing a midnight blue sequined micro-mini and matching blazer. Carrying a child has not in any way affected her physical appearance, apparently?

As for Pulse itself, we understand the top notes are “pear blossom, frozen bergamot and Blue Curacao liqueur,” but judging by the look of the bottle it more likely smells like Thierry Mugler’s Angel, some cloying florals and the electric blue vomit splattered on the sidewalk outside your local Chili’s (where Blue Curacao goes to die).

Also, because she is a famous person with a tiny nascent famous person inside of her, she was forced by the hordes of photographers to lovingly clutch her belly:

    The way she’s holding her stomach is very awkward and stiff. It’s like if Barbie found out that she got knocked up by G.I. Joe but had to pretend like it was Ken’s baby. I guess I’m trying to say that her hand looks like plastic.

    That mini is just way to micro for a pregnant lady. Or for any lady, really. I love how she still tries to dress fashionably, but don’t be cheap when it comes to the extra inches…

    As the world remains on bump watch since learning Beyonce Knowles is pregnant, we’re becoming more and more enthralled with her maternity wear. Bey’s every outfit shows she’s not afraid of staying true to her signature style – she’s clearly having fun dressing up her baby bump while nailing glam-but-comfy looks. I would love to check out her maternity range with the House of Dereon but I can only afford to buy maternity wear sale.
