Rich people and celebrities often feel the need to sit for a portrait for milestones in their lives - their pregnancies, included. Take Kim Kardashian-West, who took matters into her own hands and posted a nude selfie that showed off her growing baby bump. In her post, the 34-year old expressed her frustration as she shut down the rumors that she was using a surrogate. It was bold (literally) and followed the trend started by Demi Moore in 1991 when she posed for Annie Leibowitz for the cover of Vanity Fair. #GoodLighting.
While Kim triumphs in getting her point across despite body shamers, we take a look at some of those other stars who’ve posed in the maternity birthday suit as we give you the lowdown on how to tastefully strip down while pregnant.
Rule #1: Cup your breast.
Christina Aguilera, V Magazine (2014)
If you’re not ready to completely free your nipples, provide your tittaes with a little bit of support by gently cupping them.
Rule #2: Bring out the bling.
Jessica Simpson, Elle (2012)
Jewelry always looks better when you’re naked. Think Kate Winslet in Titanic.
Rule #3: Place your hand on your belly.
Demi Moore, Vanity Fair (1991)
Three words: showcase the product!
Rule #4: Crossed legs keep it classy.
Britney Spears, Harper’s Bazaar (2006)
Just because you’re posing naked doesn’t mean you have to expose EVERYTHING.
Rule #5: Work the profile.
Cindy Crawford, W (1999)
This really is the best angle to really show off that baby bump.
