Back With Baby No. 2: Rihanna's Best Maternity Looks So Far
After turning heads and redefining maternity fashion last year, Rihanna is back with baby No. 2! From debuting her bump in a powerful red jumpsuit during her Super Bowl performance to strutting down the streets in crop tops and walking the red carpet in body-skimming gowns, Rihanna’s growing repertoire of fun, fresh and bold maternity looks proves once again that there are no limits to what pregnant women can wear.
Each time the American music and beauty mogul steps out in a new look, she breaks the traditional mold of what the “modest mom-to-be” should wear, unabashedly proud of the new life her body is creating and sustaining. “My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that,” she told Vogue in a interview last year. “This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?”
Below, we rounded up some of the best looks from Rihanna’s second pregnancy so far and chronicled outfits from her first pregnancy that we just can’t get enough of.
