Louise Roe Rocks a Seraphine Black Maternity Dress at Exclusive Film Screening

We can’t get enough of Louise Roe & her chic maternity style. The TV presenter and fashion journalist is nailing it in Seraphine maternity clothes!


Get the Look: Ultra-Soft Ribbed Knit Maternity Dress

Louise wore one of our stunning little black maternity dresses on a recent trip to Boston, where she rocked it at an intimate pre-screening of new psycho-thriller Gemini. She teamed the classic black dress with a statement pair of over-the-knee boots and a chic gold pendant necklace.



We loved Louise’s chic outfit – it was the perfect choice for such a glamorous event, and she positively glowed, posing alongside actress Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The Duchess of Cambridge wears a Seraphine little black maternity dress

This dress has a particularly glamorous fan club including none other than The Duchess of Cambridge! She teamed the style with a stunning Cartier necklace for a public appearance on her first official visit to New York back when she was expecting Princess Charlotte.



Actress Tamsin Egerton is another fan of the style, as is Sky Sports presenter Olivia Wayne. Both mamas looked utterly chic in the figure-flattering black dress.



2) Black Dot Woven Maternity Dress

Putting a stylish new twist on the sartorial classic, our Black Dot Woven Maternity Dress is a versatile must-have.



Just last week, stunning theatre director Sophie Hunter simply glowed in the dress on the arm of husband Benedict Cumberbatch at the swanky Christmas party hosted by the London Library with Harrods.



Singer Sophie Ellis Bextor is another fan of the style. She rocked the dress on holiday in the South of France while expecting her youngest son Jesse last summer, putting its year-round styling credentials to the test.

Fashion blogger Jessica Quirk of What I Wore fame raved about this dress: “I think it might be my favorite maternity dress yet! It’s kind of crazy to say something meant to accommodate a growing belly could be so slimming, but this frock somehow does it! Nice!”


3) Black Maternity Shift Dress


Last but certainly not least is our Black Maternity Shift Dress – a timeless style designed to fit & flatter your growing curves. Super model Coco Rocha loved this little black dress so much, she was pictured in it three times!



And Coco isn’t the only super model mama to love the style – former Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes was also a fan of this dress and was pictured wearing it the week before she welcomed her daughter Myllena Mae.



Former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt visited one of our London stores to pick up her LBD, which she styled with chic silver shoes and a long pendant necklace.



This style is also a favourite with the fashion bloggers. Stunning Alexis Atarian paired it with a denim jacket & chic hat, while Lauren Sebastian AKA Big Blonde Hair kept it simple with a pair of shades and tousled hair.



Whatever your style, you’re sure to find your perfect little black maternity dress at Seraphine.
