From their unique tastes in maternity fashions to the strollers, baby clothes, and nursery décor they choose, the celebrities you most look to for inspiration reveal a lot about your personal mommy style. Match your fashion sense and personality with the following celebrity mom style gurus.
Celebrity Style Guru: Kate Hudson
Prefer cloth diapers to disposables? Are organic baby clothes on your shower gift registry? Interested in baby wearing? If yes, then Hudson's earth mother style might be your perfect fit.
The star of such films as How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Almost Famous might dress in designer gowns when she walks the red carpet, but in real life, Kate Hudson favors a more down-to-earth style. While pregnant with her son Ryder, the all-natural mom usually wore flowing sundresses and sandals. Laid-back, loose-fitting clothes are comfortable choices during pregnancy—and sandals are great footwear for swollen feet!
Hudson made news shortly after Ryder was born by becoming one of Hollywood's first moms to regularly wear her baby in a sling. Ryder's clothes—he is often seen in tie-dyed shirts and shorts—reflect Hudson's hippie-chic fashion sense.
Earth Mother Parenting Tip: Want to be a slinging mama like Hudson? The best advice from other women who regularly tote their tots is "practice, practice, practice!" If you buy a ready-made sling or carrier, chances are it will come with detailed instructions. Go through them step-by-step, substituting your baby with a doll or stuffed animal, until you feel comfortable. It takes time to learn the different techniques and positions, but soon you will be a baby-wearing pro.
