But Pompeo was up for the challenge.

Zoë Saldana Jokes She Might Need Three Halloween Costumes

10/02/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Zoë Saldana is all about fake it, ’till you make it — especially when it comes to morning sickness.

On Wednesday, the actress looked pretty in pink when she stepped out in a bubblegum-hued Christian Dior trapeze dress at the Academy’s Opening Night of Hollywood Costume in Los Angeles.

And while long, flowing frocks have been a staple for Saldana, 36, throughout her pregnancy, she encourages other moms to embrace the bump — even if that means masking a few symptoms.

“It’s just wear what feels comfortable. But whatever it is you’re feeling internally, doesn’t mean that you have to look it,” she told PEOPLE.

“If you’re having morning sickness, please don’t dress like a ‘morning sick’ person. Make an effort and look beautiful because it’s a beautiful time.”

Holly Madison: Having a Baby Changed My Views on Partying

09/29/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Holly Madison‘s daughter Rainbow Aurora‘s name is fit for a princess — and her nursery is, too!

The former Girls Next Door star has created magical rooms for her daughter — one at their Las Vegas home and a second at the family’s Los Angeles abode — that channel Madison’s love for all things Disney.

While her baby girl’s California sleep space is adorned with pretty pinks and princess touches, including the framed photographs around the room, it’s Madison’s Nevada nursery where she went all out with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

“I gave it a chess board tile floor and painted a mural of the talking flowers on the wall,” Madison says in the fall issue of Mini magazine. “The curtain and crib set are blue and white, like Alice’s dress, and the artwork on the walls is Alice-inspired. We even have the talking doorknobs with the face on her doors.”
