Viva la mamma! Did you see the gorgeous mamas & babies at Dolce & Gabbana’s Milan Fashion Week show? As if we needed any more reasons to love the Italian design duo, their show this year was a beautiful celebration of pregnancy & motherhood!
One of the standout stars of the show was the beautiful Italian model Bianca Balti, who is currently six months pregnant, and glowed in some seriously gorgeous designer maternity dresses. The audience loved her, and gave a huge round of applause when she first stepped out on the runway. Maternity fashion is without a doubt one of the hottest trends around right now!
Meanwhile the rest of the gorgeous D&G models walked the runway, each accompanied by her own beautiful baby! Sorry North West – babies on the front row are old news, now it’s all about babies on the runway.
Watch the Fashion Show
The tots ranged from babes in arms at just a couple of months old, to impressively well behaved toddlers in matching mummy & me outfits from the Dolce & Gabbana Junior collection. And it has got to be a testament to the impact of the clothes on show; that the models managed not to be outshined by their adorably tiny companions.
And speaking of the clothes… we fell in love with this collection. Showcasing Dolce & Gabbana’s genius signature blend of femininity, family values and subtle sex appeal; the show featured stunning lingerie inspired lace dresses, scrawled slogans, evocative red roses and sixties inspired silhouettes with chic matching coats. The collection even included an incredible range of silk dresses inspired by colourful children’s doodles – if it’s good enough for the fridge, it’s good enough for a dress!
We are so excited to see maternity fashion and the beautiful curves of the pregnant figure out on the front lines at Fashion Week. It seems that the trend for mothers and maternity is going from strength to strength – remember Chanel’s spectacular pregnant bride from last year’s couture show? What an inspiring time to be expecting!
