RDJ’s wife looks nice. No comment on the other two. The “Splurge” dress look the best.

Ok this kardashian husband here is freaking me out! he always looks sooooooo flipping creepy as if he was a wax figure or something…so dang ugly!!!

Doreen on

Jessica, you’re a long way from your Dukes of Hazzard days girl! 🙂

I like Susan Downey’s version best.

Hi on

Does anyone else think Kourtney’s fiance looks like a vampire?

Noelle on

I’m sorry that dress for Jessica is ALL WRONG. I have nothing against her body but she needs to dress it appropriately. This dress does nothing for her.

emily on

I think Kourtney looks the best. Though she also doesn’t look pregnant.

Scott looks like a creepy combination of a vampire & Lurch from the Addams Family.

I think Jess looks most beautiful, maybe if her hair were pulled back, up high, it would add some upward dimension

It’s crazy how these celebs bravely wear SKY HIGH stilettos while pregnant! When I was pregnant folks I knew would get nervous when I wore a low wedge heel which is nothing compared to these ladies! I remember seeing a pic of Victoria Beckham wearing super high heels while carrying one of her sons and walking on gravel. I don’t know how they do it! ha!

Deb on

The Kartrashians husband is weird, kinda creepy actually. Jessica looks good, they all do, but I’m amazed with her. She’s gotten so big, yet still beautiful and that glow she has, I’m jealous…I never got that glow!

Kourtney and Susan look great but Jessica should have looked in the mirror before she left home. I dont understand why she will not wear something that really suits her body shape. I dont like to be mean but the truth is the truth.

Stella Bella on

Yep, he looks like a vampire. Totally creepy.

Nella on

All three ladies look great in my opinion. I like Kourtney’s dress, but she does not look pregnant to me , it’s a sexy dress and looks good on her. Susan looks very pretty as well, that one seems most maternity dress for me out of the three. Jessica has that pregnancy glow and she looks lovely and simply happy. I love to see women dressing cute while pregnant, but I don’t think I could rock the big stilletos like they seem to during pregnancy.

Nicole on

Poor Jessica looks like she’s put on sooooooo much weight. That being said, however, at least she’s not shying away from it or hiding herself indoors all the time, like some other recently pregnant people we know.

People always comment on pregnant celebrities and the sky-high heels they wear. But I think its just a matter of what you’re used to or comfortable in. Most of us regular folks don’t walk around in 6 inch stilettos on a daily basis, but Jessica, Kourtney, Beyonce… they all wear shoes like that regularly. They’re used to it so wearing them while pregnant even with the shift in balance, isn’t as much of a big deal as it would be for someone like me who can barely walk in heels and wears them only on special occasions.

Michelle on

I think it is funny how people are talking about their heels. I wore 4 or 4 1/2 inch stilettos through out both of my pregnancies with no issue. You just wear what is comfortable for you. If you wear heels all of the time it can actually hurt your feet when you wear flats.

Also, Kourteny doesn’t even look pregnant and shouldn’t be in this post.

Ella on

Kourtney has a little belly and looks pregnant, you just have to see a side view. Click where it says “Dec. 31” and it’ll take you to that post. Or here:

Kourtneys bf is creepy.

Not the best picture of Scott and Kourtney, but it looks way better than Jessicas! Not a good dress choice…..at all.
