Met Gala Mamas! Kate Hudson and More Stars Rocking Baby Bumps on the Red Carpet Over the Years
The Met Gala is all about who wears what as stars step out for the annual fashion event in some of the most jaw-dropping and extravagant ensembles. One of the sweetest accessories on the red carpet, though, are the baby bumps, and plenty of expecting moms have rocked their pregnant bellies over the years.
A-listers like Emily Blunt, Heidi Klum and Kate Hudson have shown off their growing bumps at the fashion event hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. In the past, the lovely ladies looked absolutely elegant as they flaunted their beautiful figures in sensational gowns and ensembles.
This year’s event, taking place on Monday, September 13, is the first time in Met Gala history that it isn’t held in May. The prestigious ball, which is organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and chaired by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite the ongoing regulations, the 2021 Met Gala will be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and will feature the theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu Curator in charge of the Costume Institute, opened up about the theme, telling Vogue that it focuses on fashion made in the U.S.A.
“I’ve been really impressed by American designers’ responses to the social and political climate, particularly around issues of body inclusivity and gender fluidity, and I’m just finding their work very, very self-reflective,” he shared with the Vogue in April 2021. “I really do believe that American fashion is undergoing a renaissance.”
Along with Anna, honorary cochairs include Tom Ford and Adam Mosseri, as well as Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka as cochairs. Per Vogue, the Costume Institute’s exhibit will be broken up into two parts, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”
There’s no doubt fans are looking forward to seeing all the incredible creations that the stars come up with this year, but they especially can’t wait to see if anyone will be rocking a baby bump.
