Rihanna's recent pregnancy announcement has changed the genre of 'maternity style' as we know it. Spotted out and about in New York - as well as on the front row at fashion month - RiRi has worn everything from cut-away catsuits to latex crop tops to sheer naked dresses. But she's not the only one who has taken a bold approach to dressing one's bump. (As Jada Pinkett Smith just posted on Instagram: 'Who says you can't wear see thru fits when you're preggers???' referring to a throwback picture of herself, and a recent one of Rihanna, where they're both showcasing their bumps in barely-there fabric.)

A few years ago, Jodie Turner-Smith styled out the most spectacular pregnancy wardrobe from Gucci, wearing sunshine yellow sequins to 2020's BAFTAs. In fact, after she appeared in a crop top on The Graham Norton Show, Turner-Smith had a message for viewers who didn't agree with her choice of outfit, tweeting: ' zero fucks about your disdain for pregnant women’s bodies on British television.' Quite right too.

From Beyoncé to Meryl Streep - who both, incidentally, had a 'goddess in gold' moment during their pregnancies - here are our favourite celebrity pregnancy style moments that tick the 'bold' box.

Another fan of latex is Ashley Graham, who wore the fabric in firetruck red for an outing in 2019.

Compared to recent arrivals at the Met Gala, this rose-printed gown (albeit with a daring thigh-high slit) was a relatively muted moment for Kim Kardashian.

Matching the gold of her statuette - the occasion was 1983's Oscars, where the actor had just won for her role in Sophie's choice - Streep and her bump were best in show.
