Playing Celebs' Top Maternity Fashion Trends

From Kim Kardashian to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, baby bumps are all the rage this summer, and maternity fashion designer Liz Lange gave us insight into the most popular ways for the stars to dress during their pregnancies.

There are several strategies for presenting an expectant mother's growing belly. One of tactic is referred to as "tenting" -- a preferred method of Duchess Kate, who is said to be due July 13.

"I love her dress-and-coat look. It's so elegant," said Lange. "It's royal; it's appropriate. She reminds me of Jackie Kennedy on the campaign trail with Jack when she was pregnant."

While Duchess Kate favors a wardrobe that hides her baby bump, Kim K. (due in July) opts to flaunt it with figure-hugging garbs.

"I know that Kim wants to keep it fitted and really show off her pregnancy bump and that's great, but I think it's all about proportion," said Lange, who conceded that it's unfair for every one of Kim's fashion decisions to be placed under the camera's scrutiny.

Due in September is the Black Eyed Peas' first lady, Fergie.

"Fergie's a real rocker chick," said Lange. "I like some of her choices. They're fun."

One of those fun choices is to show a little bit of skin, which Lange considers a good idea for a petite frame.

Another petite mom-to-be is Jessica Simpson, who is due mid-summer.

"She always has that beautiful California girl [look] with the long, blonde waves," Lange raved.
