It’s only been three weeks since Beyoncé stole the spotlight at the MTV Video Music Awards with her pregnancy announcement and we’re already smitten with her diva-licious maternity style.

A day before strutting her stuff in three sexy ensembles during New York Fashion Week, the pop star hit the stands in a casual, yet fierce outfit to watch the U.S. Open men’s finals with her main man Jay-Z on Sept. 12.

The mom-to-be rocked a black fedora, cool graphic tee, multi-chain choker, Mama J by J Brand‘s 3401 Maternity Leggings ($176), Dolce & Gabbana‘s Miss Sicily Handbag ($1725) and platform pumps.

Love Beyoncé’s sports-ready chic? You’re in luck. We’ve rounded up similar items — all under $88!

Pregnant or not, you could always use a leg up. So, why not show off your gams with Wild Diva‘s Memory Platform Pump ($23 – $44). Like to walk on the wild side? These sexy heels also come in a zebra print.

Animal prints are here to stay. But if you’re afraid to wear it head to toe, add a touch with SR Squared by Sondra Roberts‘ classic, yet cool Leopard Shoulder Bag ($88).

Aside from the price and leggings(dnt like leggings) I rock a similar outfir. Have ro buy a new fedora for the fall, though. I’m rocking snapbacks. Love the look on her.

She might just be covering it up well, but she’s the only celeb new mommy that seems to be getting less pregnant as time goes by. On the red carpet and during her performance her bump was extremely noticable. Maybe its because she made a point of showing it off but now, if she hadn’t already admitted it, you wouldn’t know she was pregnant at all.

Mimi, I totally agree with you. They had those three pics of her from two weeks ago and she didn’t look pregnant either.

She did look pregnant in those bikini pic’s a while back though. As far as the gala goes, she might have added an extra layer of padding to protect the baby (I think Mariah Carey did the same).
