Get the pregnant look

Pregnant bellies are in vogue! Whether your womb is housing a single fetus, twins, triplets or more, it doesn't matter. Sometimes you don't even have to be really pregnant - as with hair colour and designer handbags, there is always a way to fake it.

It's amazing to see how many celebrities and royals have latched on to this new trend. Everyday it seems there are more and more ordinary people getting impregnated to copy this popular look.

As far as maternity style goes, it's no longer fashionable to hide signs of pregnancy behind layers of chiffon, elasticised gypsy skirts and Liz Taylor's old caftans. Women are choosing to have their bloated midriffs painted by freelance Faberge egg artists and exposed for art lovers to enjoy and possibly critique.

In Toronto:

At a soccer match in Hanover:

And in Beijing which recently held its first belly painting contest:

The tiara, that smile, those hands! They know not how to pose for the camera but yet they want to win this thing so bad. Then again, there are worse things than painting a giant cabbage over your unborn child, like wearing a spangly singlet and knickerbockers in your third trimester:

Or being contestant no. 10 who really ought to be declared unfit to dress a child.

I blame Demi Moore. Ever since that Vanity Fair cover, this has simply escalated.

If those unborn babies had a sixth sense or a third eye, I bet all of these pregnancies would result in miscarriages.

After all, who wants a freakish mother?

Dafina Girl, the pic is from Reuters and related to a news story about Gay pride week in Toronto.

J-a, don't you want a little brood to mould after yourself?!?!

Just when finally with great sacrifice and struggle I get a tiny little middle, the 'pregnant look' is in fashion.

Oh well, I can just poke out my belly and it'll hide all the loose skin wrinkles that I've been working on to tighten up and I'll be back in fashion. Right?

Do you think this will work well with my 67 year old bod? I know! maybe with a belly button ring.. then no one will notice the rest of me.

hmmmnn What do you think?

or why not ?

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
