Kareena Kapoor Khan gave us Poo at the beginning of her career. The character made Bebo an iconic fashionista and announced to the world exactly who she was. Cut to 2016, when Taimur Ali Khan, the first child of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena was born.
The world adored that child, but before that happened, everyone fell in love with Kareena’s maternity fashion. The way the actress carried her self and flaunted her baby bump unabashedly was something that was not seen before in Bollywood. From comfy dresses to heavy ethnic wear, Kareena donned all and might we add, slayed all.
Recently, Kareena announced her second pregnancy with Saif, and the world, especially, the expecting mothers started getting ready for the new trends that Kareena is about to set for maternity fashion. In this week’s Fashion Friday, we are going to walk down memory lane and reminisce some of the most glam pregnancy looks by Kareena.
It is not just us who feels that way, even the global star Priyanka Chopra said so. During one of the Koffee with Karan episodes released in March 2019, both Priyanka and Kareena were on the couch. The Sky Is Pink actress said how she loved the way Kareena carried herself. Priyanka even went ahead and said that she would absolutely take style cues from Kareena whenever she is expecting her first child.
And rightly so. Kareena Kapoor has walked the ramp while being heavily pregnant and given a maternity twist to the airport looks as well. Kareena never hid her baby bump. If anything, she flaunted it.
Ramp Walk for Sabyasachi
In August 2016, Kareena Kapoor set the ramp on fire when she walked for Sabyasachi. The pregnant star looked stunning in a heavily embroidered grey sheer long choli-lehenga set. With her pregnancy glow on her face and a dupatta on her head, Kareena showed how it is done.
Before the actress walked for Sabyasachi, she also attended a press conference wearing another beautiful outfit by the designer. Kareena looked absolutely royal in her floral-printed pre-pleated outfit which was teamed with a multi-layered beaded necklace.
Long Black Dress
A tricky neckline and heels, not something that an expecting mother would opt for, correct? But that is not the case when it comes to Bebo. The actress was seen wearing this stunning piece that featured an embellished neckline and belt, by Philipp Plein. And guess what, the heels were Jimmy Choos.
One-shoulder thigh slit dress
Bebo shattered all pre-conceived notions that people had regarding the kind of clothes women should wear while pregnant. At Rima Jain’s party in September 2016, the stunner wore this gorgeous flowy one-shoulder olive dress that had a thigh-high slit.
Kareena Kapoor wore a semi-sheer long blouse with intricate embroidery and a black long skirt by Anita Dongre at an event in Kolkata. She accessorised the look with a statement choker and minimal make-up. This was one of the best pregnancy looks by Kareena.
Painting the town red
A month before she gave birth to Tim aka Taimur Ali Khan, Kareena attended an awards show and looked her most gorgeous self. Dressed in a flowy bright red off-shoulder gown by Gauri and Nainika, Kareena taught expecting mothers how to do maternity fashion right.
If you thought we were kidding about the airport outfits, have a look at this picture. Walking hand-in-hand with Saif, the actress opted for a beautiful beige-shirt-and-long-skirt combo by Ritu Kumar and accessorised the look with her boss babe attitude.
Basic looks made maternity chic
It was not just the over the top outfits that Kareena looked great in during her pregnancy. The actress wore this simple beige dress which she teamed with her Gucci loafers. This look is comfy and statement-making at the same time.
Boss Babe Bebo
Even though Kareena was heavily pregnant during this phase, she never let fashion take a back seat. Here, at an event in Hyderabad, the actress can be seen flaunting her baby bump in a bodycon white top teamed with an A-line black skirt and a long jacket.
There have not been many actresses who made headline with their maternity looks. It was the Gossip Girl star Blake Lively who actually gave an extremely chic twist to maternity fashion in the year 2014 when she was about to give birth to her first daughter with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds. After that, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle also made headlines as she strutted around in pencil heels while being pregnant.
In India, the crown goes to Kareena Kapoor Khan. Which is your favourite Kareena Kapoor maternity look?
