There’s a bump in the road!

Stepping out on June 16 for the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association‘s 42nd annual Beastly Ball in L.A., second-time mom-to-be Sarah Michelle Gellar dressed up her burgeoning belly in a chic head-to-toe black ensemble.

The actress opted for AllSaints‘ Black Stitch Dress ($250) and color-coordinated braided T-strap wedges.

I like Sarah Michelle’s dress, a lot! I love the 1920’s Flapper style.

Okay, I have to ask, when did the whole gotta “cross my legs” pose start? It makes me chuckle every time I see it (pregnant or not but funnier on the pregnant). I mean think about it, when she’s nine months along, the “cross my legs” pose could make standing very difficult. And could you imagine if this pose catches on with the celebrity men! LOL! 🙂

Zoe, I was just thinking the same thing! I love Sarah Michelle Gellar, but whenever I see this pose it looks as if the person needs to go to the bathroom desperately. So many are using this pose these days, and someone needs to say, “Not adorable; it just looks silly!”

Otherwise, Sarah looks gorgeous, as usual, and dressed like $1million! They seem to be such a great couple…….. Can’t wait for the new baby!

@Marky – “looks as if the person needs to go to the bathroom desperately” HAHAHAHA I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes! 🙂

This pose has been around forever It replaced that drag your foot along the edge of your other foot pose with one knee bent. It actually give the illusion you are smaller as your legs come in towards your feet. If you stand with your feet side by side, it can make you look very wide.

I love her style, but I am pretty sure this is a maternity dress she wore the first time around. Still classy though. And I like to see celebs where clothes more than once.

I wore some of my maternity clothes for more than one pregnancy, since my children were close together and same season, and the nicer clothes were, like Sarah’s dress, sort of timeless. I don’t care for the “Gee, I didn’t notice I was pregnant, and I’m still wearing my regular clothes stretched across my middle, but I’m sure I look adorable!” look. SMG always looks great……
