Keira Knightley! Hilaria Baldwin! The Oscar Night’s Best Baby Bumps

02/23/2015 at 05:30 PM ET

Sure, there were the wine-colored lips and the casual ponytails and even the matchy-matchy dress code.

But one of the best looks during Sunday night’s Oscars was all the baby bumps both on the red carpet (Keira Knightley! Sophie Hunter!) and during the after parties (Isla FisherLisa Osbourne!).

And from Knightley’s floor-length ensemble to Hilaria Baldwin and Molly Sims‘s fitted frocks, the evening was all about moms-to-be showing off their burgeoning bellies.

Sticking to her maternity mantra of loose-fitted clothing, the Imitation Game actress first stepped out on the red carpet in a flirty floral Valentino Couture gown, that kept her belly mostly under wraps while posing for photos with husband James Righton.

But, much to our delight, Knightley, 29, later slipped into another Valentino dress, featuring an empire waist that gave everyone a good peek at her growing midsection during the Vanity Fair afterparty.
