Should Keira Knightley be up for winning best dressed?

Talk about a yummy mummy! British actress Keira Knightley proudly showed off her baby bump at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday.

The actress – who is six months pregnant with her first child with husband James Righton – wore billowing Valentino for her turn on the red carpet. 

Covered in flowers and French words, Keira’s dress is from Valentino‘s Spring/Summer 2015 couture collection, and took a reported 3000 hours to make. It’s so fancy, it reminds us of Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress. The designer fashion action didn’t end there either, as the actress complimented her Oscar look with a delicate headband and some Chanel jewellery. 

Keira was nominated for Best Actress for her role in ‘The Imitation Game’ against Emma Stone, Laura Dern, Patricia Arquette and Meryl Streep and lost out to Patricia Arquette for her role in Boyhood.

Keira has become a poster girl for maternity dressing since announcing her pregnancy. But there’s been no dodgy dungarees or frumpy smocks – Keira has had designers including Burberry, Chanel and Nina Ricci practically falling over themselves to dress her and her bump!

On Saturday night the 29 year old actress attended the pre-Oscar party looking pretty in a pleated and ruffle detail dress by Chanel, whilst at the Vanity Fair after party Keira opted for yet another Valentino number, this time in the form of a dramatic black floor sweeper with a plunging neckline.

And whilst Keira’s been getting it 99% right in the maternity dressing style stakes, there have been a couple of fashion blunders. Take the frumpy floral dress she wore to the BAFTA’s. It might have been a Chanel number, but with the unflattering midi length and Grandma’s curtains print, we reccon it wouldn’t look out of place in The Queen’s wardrobe. Sozza, Karl Lagerfeld. (Love you, HRH). 

Looks like Keira might have picked up a few maternity style tips along the way though, as we think her Oscars look is her best yet. We love how the dusty pink shade flatters her porcelain skin and her gentle waved hair frames her face. If only we could bottle that pregnancy glow!
