No gray area here: Hollywood’s hottest moms-to-be are looking good! We’ve spotted everyone from Vanessa Lachey (March 22) and Jessica Simpson (Jan. 16) to Jessica Alba (June 2011) keeping their bumps covered with stylish gray maxi dresses.

It may not be maternity, but the flowing design of Splendid‘s Modal Lycra Maxi Dress ($112) offers you (and your bump) plenty of room to grow.

Pair it with a light colored cardigan and you’ll be stylishly set for spring.

It’s style meets comfort with Gap Maternity‘s Pocket Maxi Dress ($60). The stretchy fabric is oh-so soft, while the scoop neckline and capped sleeves keep you right on trend.

Plus, it’s also available in black and bright blue.

Play up your pregnancy curves with Motherhood Maternity‘s Long Sleeve Lightweight Maternity Maxi Dress ($30). We just love how the polished skinny black belt stylishly adds interest to the chic marled knit fabric.

Vanessa for the win. I hate when people’s clothes drag on the ground.

Cute dresses and nice range of prices. I like this trend.

Sorry but I think it’s disrespectful to compare Vanessa against Jessica. I know they’ve moved on, but still.
