Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel‘s wearing her bump curves well.
She stylishly stepped out in Trina Turk‘s sparkly Payne sweater dress ($114) and gold open-toe Christian Louboutin pumps to Thursday’s premiere of Discovery Channel’s Life.
The key to her maternity chic?
“I don’t have one. I’m still developing it,” confesses Frankel, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Jason Hoppy in June.
“My style is leggings with some sort of muumuu and a belt. [Jason] calls me a baboon because my boobs touch my belly.”
Simian comparisons aside, the chef and reality TV personailty is following in the footsteps of some of Hollywood’s hottest moms-to-be, flaunting her growing bump in body-conscious dresses — a mostly unintentional choice.
“Nothing’s maternity, yet. I hate to buy anything new, so I’m digging through my closet to find anything that stretches,” she tells PEOPLE’s Celebrity Baby Blog. “I like to use what I already have — just like my cooking!”
While she may dread upcoming shopping trips, Frankel is still enjoying her body’s changes.
“I really do love pregnancy. I’ve had the best time. I have energy. I’ve been working like a dog and I’m still okay.”
