The Duchess of Cambridge Meets the Woman Who Dresses America

What happens when two of the world’s most stylish fashion icons collide? A meeting made in sartorial heaven – that’s what!

This week marks the two year anniversary of The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s first official trip to New York, when she dazzled the world in stunning Seraphine maternity clothes. AND when Kate Middleton made the acquaintance of Jenna Lyons – The Woman Who Dresses America.


The Duchess of Cambridge meets Jenna Lyons


With so much style in one room, we’re still reeling from the result!

Jenna wore a stunning sequinned top over a chic pinstriped shirt, rocking her signature slicked back hair and geek-chic glasses. While The Duchess looked effortlessly glamorous in our Black Turtleneck Vanessa Maternity Dress, which she styled with a stunning Cartier necklace.


The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge at the GREAT Reception


Fashion Designer Jenna Lyons is the Creative Director & President of US fashion giant J Crew, and also holds a coveted position on the board of directors on the Council of Fashion Designers of America.



The Duchess of Cambridge inspires women around the world with her grace, poise and impeccable personal style, and is well known for her uncanny ability to make the dresses she wears sell out within minutes. Our Fuchsia Knot Front Maternity Dress, which Kate Middleton wore in the first official pictures with Prince George is the perfect example!



When it comes to fashion influence, the two are fairly evenly matched! The Duchess’s classic elegance and Jenna’s edgy chic made for a fantastic fashion contrast when they met at New York’s NeueHouse at the Creativity is GREAT Reception. Both women were in attendance at the event to celebrate British talent in the creative industries, including music, film, fashion and art.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is Stunning in Seraphine Luxe

This week we have been delighted to see Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden enjoying her new Seraphine wardrobe!


Last week the Princess chose our Polka Dot Silk Maternity Dress to attended a meeting of the International Paralympic Committee at the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg. Victoria’s elegant silk dress was the perfect choice for the sumptuous surroundings, and she looked ultra-stylish as she discussed next year’s Paralympic Games with other European Royals including Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, Prince Albert of Monaco and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.



This week the Crown Princess kicked off her official visit to South America, and we were delighted to see her wearing another bespoke Seraphine maternity dress on her arrival in Lima! Victoria looked stunning in the smart red style to greet crowds and to meet the Peruvian President Ollanta Humala.



This Wednesday she wore another Seraphine Luxe maternity dress out to dinner in Colombia with her husband Prince Daniel. This beautiful corn flower blue style in silk and lace comes from our SS16 collection, and will be available for purchase in the new year. In the mean time though, the navy version – the Silk and Lace Special Occasion Dress – is available now in our LUXE collection.

Of course this all comes after Princess Victoria’s stunning appearance at her nephew Prince Nicolas’ christening in a bespoke Seraphine maternity dress. The Seraphine purple set off her radiant pregnancy glow perfectly, and the smart empire peplum flattered her figure. 



The Princess loved the style so much that she wore it again, along with the matching bespoke Seraphine coat on Thursday evening to meet with the Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Calderon.

HELLO! Editor Rosie Nixon: Pregnancy, Celebrity Gossip & Beauty Tips

Rosie Nixon is the editor of Hello! Magazine, and one of the most glamorous women in the media today. With previous credits at Grazia, Glamour and Red Magazine to her name, it’s safe to say that she knows her stuff when it comes to fashion and lifestyle! Rosie lives in London with her husband and 18 month old son Heath, and is expecting her second baby (a little brother!) later this year.


1)     We love your style! Can you sum up your look in 3 words?

 Classic with an edge (4 words, sorry)


A photo posted by Rosie Nixon (@rosiejnixon) on

2)     As editor of Hello! You have a stylish image to maintain. How do you manage dressing your bump for work?

Seraphine has been my pregnancy style saviour for the second time, I honestly think you have all 3 trimesters covered better than any other maternity brand. During the early months I find more loose-fitting styles work better but once the bump ‘pops out’, figure-hugging dresses and tops are more flattering. I tend to wear mostly dresses at work as they look smarter, but at weekends I live in leggings with smock tops, vests and cozy sweaters or wraps.


3)     We’ve loved seeing you in Seraphine through both of your pregnancies. Do you have a favourite piece from our collection?

The Bump Kit London has been my wardrobe saviour throughout pregnancy. And I’ve totally fallen in love with the Graphic Floral Maternity and Nursing Dress – I love the slightly edgy print, clingy flattering style, and the fact I can wear it when I’m nursing too. I’m pretty sure I’ll wear it for as long as possible.



4)     There must be plenty of glamorous events to attend as part of your job – what’s the most exciting event you have coming up & what are you planning to wear?

I’ll be attending the GQ Awards soon and the following night am hosting a HELLO! table at the British Olympic Ball. I’ll be wearing Seraphine on both occasions – the claret lace dress for GQ and black lace detail wrap maternity gown for the ball. 



5)  You’ve interviewed a lot of famous people with Hello! what’s been the most exciting interview or celebrity home you’ve visited?

I’ve just returned from interviewing Jackie Collins in L.A. – she was fabulous personified and I can’t wait to invite you inside her Beverly Hills home in an upcoming issue. Other memorable interviewees include Robbie Williams on the eve of his wedding, and Sharon Osbourne is always a scream.


6)     We’ve heard a rumour you’ve written a book…

Yes, I’m very excited that my first novel, The Stylist, is going to be published by Harlequin (HarperCollins) in late January 2016. It’s a feast of red carpet fashion, celebrity meltdowns and features a big, exotic showbiz wedding. I REALLY hope you’ll enjoy reading it!



7)     With so much going on, finding the perfect work life balance must be tough – if you could have one super power what would it be & how would you use it?

To click my heels, Dorothy-style, and magic myself around town – especially at the end of the day when I can’t get home quick enough to put my little boy to bed.


8)     What’s your favourite restaurant for a romantic dinner, and which is your favourite for brunch with the girls?

I’m loving the new Soho House on Dean Street in London for mocktails, and I’m a fan of The Breakfast Club for their extensive brunch menu. I like to keep it local for romantic dinners and it’s always a treat to visit Trinity in Clapham, the food is exceptional.



9)     We are confiscating your makeup bag – you’re allowed to keep three essential cosmetics. What do you choose?

L’Occitane, Precious BB Cream SPF30 – it keeps skin moisturized, protected and is a fast, effective way to cover blemishes; Mac cream blusher and Bourgeois Ultra Curl Mascara. And I’ll beg you for my Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Wear Lipstick!


10)  We can’t get over your gorgeous shiny hair – what’s your secret?

Pregnancy. It is a miracle worker for hair.



Zooey Deschanel debuts her New Girl in a Seraphine Nursing Dress!

New mum Zooey Deschanel stepped out looking stunning in a Seraphine maternity & nursing dress this week!


The newly married New Girl star went out for lunch near her home in Austin, Texas with husband Jacob Pechenik, who seems to be enjoying his new role as daddy, carrying their adorable baby daughter in her car seat. Zooey looked fantastic in our Black & Pink Maternity & Nursing Dress, which skimmed her trim post-baby body perfectly, cinching in at the empire line to make the most of her figure. It’s always exciting to see expectant stars wearing Seraphine, but it’s somehow even more special when they carry on rocking maternity clothes after the birth!

She kept the look simple with natural hair and makeup, and teamed the dress with a stylish baby changing bag and a cute pair of ballerina flats.


The stunning actress is known for her cute and quirky fashion sense, favouring feminine cuts, bright colours and stylish printed dresses. Explore our new range of printed maternity & nursing dresses and channel a touch of Zooey’s style!

It’s great to see the new mum out and about and looking so fantastic just weeks after the birth. She kept a low profile towards the end of her pregnancy, and as it turns out, she had an exciting reason. Last week she revealed that not only was she a new mum, but that she was also a newlywed, having married Jacob in a secret ceremony – how romantic! Though we must admit, we wish we could have seen her wedding dress!


Congratulations on your new family Zooey – you are looking fabulous!



Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher: the latest in the new wave of celeb baby news!

Now that Halle Berry, Gwen Stefani and Kate Winslet have all welcomed their healthy baby boys; Maceo, Apollo and Bear into the world, and with Drew Barrymore due any day now, we here at Seraphine Maternity were beginning to wonder just how we would get our celeb spotting fix! But it turns out that we needn’t have worried – Mila Kunis could just be the latest in a new wave of celebrity pregnancies along with the glamorous likes of Scarlett Johansson and Charmed actress Alyssa Milano!


Rumours are flying around recently engaged Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, ex-co-stars of ‘That 70’s Show’, who have been dating since 2012, and are now reportedly expecting a baby! The notoriously private pair have yet to comment on the pregnancy rumours, but multiple sources around them have confirmed the news.

Here are our top 3 pregnancy style predictions for Mila Kunis:


Red Carpet Gowns

Walking the red carpet, Mila tends to go for statement gowns in bright colours and is a big fan of designers Vera Wang & Elie Saab. She’s dazzled in lilac, green and red, and most recently, we saw her at this year’s golden globes in a stunning silvery metallic Gucci gown.

She’ll be out and about this summer promoting her upcoming film Jupiter Ascending, so there ought to be plenty of opportunities to see her in a few gorgeous maternity gowns, and we think she’d look amazing in our Multiway Blue Silk Maternity Evening Gown or our Embellished Butterfly Sleeve Maternity Gown.


Casual Summer Style

Mila will be pregnant through the hot LA summer, so she’ll be looking for ways to keep cool in the heat. She’s partial to a pair of shorts, and was snapped looking ultra cool (in every sense of the word) in a cute pair of denim shorts with a plain white tee and flip flops – perfect for those off duty summer days. She could easily recreate this look with our Blue Denim Maternity Mini Shorts and our White Chiffon Maternity Top!

She also loves cute summer dresses in monochrome styles; we think she’d look fabulous in our Short Sleeve Polka Dot Mock Wrap Maternity Dress or our Fitted Empire Line Maternity Cocktail Dress.


A Low Key Wedding?

The latest rumours would suggest that the pair are thinking about a low key registry office wedding possibly as soon as April! We predict that Mila may just go for a shorter wedding dress rather than the full on traditional gown and we think she’d look simply beautiful in our Round Neck Ivory Lace Maternity Wedding Dress!
