Roberts wore a pink gingham Sleeper lace-up midi dress with a matching pair of Merino wool pink-and-white check Rothy’s. The Sleeper Marquise dress was inspired by those worn in the French film Angélique, Marquise des Anges and features a corset-style lacing that flatters, as the product description puts it, “the smallest part of your frame.” Of course, ironically, now that Roberts is pregnant, the smallest part of her already small frame is now the biggest. Not to mention, it’s going to change constantly for months.
Now while most people wouldn’t think to wear a corset or a bustier while pregnant, Roberts proves the style is secretly perfect for maternity. Not only does the lace-up detail flatter your belly, but it’s easy to adjust as the months go on. And as the year of the secret surprise celeb baby continues, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a lot more of this style on secret-surprise-celeb-baby-bellies everywhere. It really is their year.
