Amy adams looks beautiful, glowing mum-to-be. Think they both do, but prefer the style of Amy’s dress, more flattering IMO.

I like Amy’s, but formal wear for pregnant women does not look to comfortable!!

Something About Baby on

They both prove that you can be pregnant and glamorous on the red carpet.

Laura on

They both look beautiful. I don’t think I could choose a winner.

Although I love the color of Paula’s dress and how awesome it looks against her skin, I’m going to have to go with Amy; Paula’s dress just looks like there is not enough breathing room around the belly area!

They both look AMAZING!!! I like Amy’s dress but I ♥ Paula’s! They are both really beautiful!

Sarah on

AMY! For sure! Mostly cos I am a huge fan! 🙂

Meela on

Nope, I will not choose!! They both look stunning, I never looked that good preggos!!

Maya on

Amy does look more organic and effortless. That blue is beautiful on her.

Red Ginger on

They both look great and there is no need to state who looks better. No wonder people are so messed up.

Both look beautiful. It seems like Paula’s been carrying very small. I think she’s due in less than 2 months and still looks so small to me.

Luna on

omg they look fantastic. That’s a GORGEOUS dress on Amy and i like Paula’s a lot. i cannot choose who looks more awesome.

Sonya on

While they both look great, I prefer the style and the colour of Amy’s dress.

Mina on

Without a doubt, it’s a tie! But I must point out I LOVE that orange dress. When I think of orange, I dont see it as a dress color but it looks good! It’s a subtle orange, not the neon “I see you coming!” orange. Very nice!

Lauren on

I think Amy’s higher waistline better compliments her belly, so she gets my vote for Best Dressed Baby Bump. That said, I love both women and can’t to see them with their babies. I am also rooting for a girl for Amy to compliment Julian 🙂

Melanie on

I will admit I’m a fan of Amy’s dress….Paula’s just reminds me of that line from “Steel Magnolias”–“It’s like two pigs, fighting under a blanket!” But, my bias is based more on my preference for flowy, pretty, loose things when I’m pregnant. They are both gorgeous women.

Molly on

Amy all the way, that dress is stunning and such a great color on her!

I think Paula’s is more form flattering to her baby bump, but I like the color of Amy’s WAY more. I think the orange of Paula’s is over-the-top. If it were a different tone I would have liked it better. That said, they both look gorgeous.

NikNak on

Paula’s nose is beginning to swell. I’ve seen that often in pregnant women. What causes that?

daniela on

LOL@ Melanie! I kinda agree! Paula’s dress color compliments her complexion very well and she is so darn gorgeous! But I just don’t like the dress it just doesn’t look like it fits well at all…I don’t think I would even like it on someone that is not preggers – not my style I guess.

On the other hand Amy’s dress is absolutely beautiful! The color, they style, the fit is just perfect! I would wear that one preggers or not in a heart beat! 🙂

Electra on

I’m gonna go with paula for taking a risk the color and a different style. I understand empire waisted is the most comfortable but its so boring. My votes for paula!

cat on

I love the colour of Paula´s dress, but I think Amy looks radiant. But I´m sorry, the most stylish bump was Angelina´s in a gorgeous green Max Mara dress in Cannes 2008, when she was pregnant with the twins.

Lola Marie on


I’m not choosing 🙂

Paula’s gown is form fitting and “mommy-to-be sexy”. While Amy’s dress accentuates her hair color and skin tone wonderfully.

Both look absolutely wonderful.

Rye on

Yeah, why is it that some women have swelling of the nose area when they are pregnant? I have also noticed that! I thought maybe I was the only one, so I am glad someone else mentioned it!

Alice on

I think amy looks absolutely gorgrous. I’m a fan of that kind of shape even for non pregnant women though. But my all-time favourite red carpet mama was Angelina Jolie when she wore that green dress in Cannes or something (when she was expecting the twins). She looked beyond amazing.

KiwiKiki on

They are both stunning, but I vote for Amy. Her dress is gorgeous, perfectly fitted and she is radiant!

maggie on

cat that was max azia not max mara but yeah that was the best pregnacy dress along with halle berry’s blue versace at the “things we lost in the fire” in the uk premire in 07. i like both so count me out
