Clothes maketh the reality star.
When Kim Kardashian wants the world to know something and there’s no appropriate emoji, she uses her other favourite medium: fashion.
What we’re hearing loud and clear from the pregnant future first lady is that she’s bumpin’, bumpin’ and she doesn’t care who sees it.
There were so many great sartorial moments from Kardashian’s first pregnancy with daughter North West, but generally her ensembles seemed to be screaming, “My fiance made me wear this,” and “Please let me out of this leather-peplum prison”.
Kim Kardashian says that, in terms of fashion, she’s come a long way since then and is approaching her second pregnancy with a son (name suggestions: South by South, Go, Inner, Wild, The Wicked Witch of the) from a whole new angle.
“I also look back at my last pregnancy looks and sometimes I am mortified,” she wrote on her new website.

“I didn’t even know my signature style yet, let alone how to dress for a baby bump! My style kept changing and nothing was consistent.”
As most women know, the most stressful thing about pregnancy and impending motherhood isn’t the bloody, horror-movie-like certainty of having a human being come out of your body, nor the prospect of the next 18 long years of full-time parenting.
It’s working out what your signature style is.
“This time around, I know what I like — plus, I am confident and not trying to hide my bump. I actually want to accentuate it,” says Kimbo. She’s also conveying some other messages with her clothing choices.
Let’s have a look at some of Kim Kardashian’s best preggo looks and see what her outfits are telling us.
1. She’s an anarchist.
Stretching a tiny leather mini across your bump is a subversive move from Ms K-W. How many women do you know who wear mini skirts, let alone leather ones, during pregnancy?
Kim is refusing to play into outdated ideas of what a pregnant woman should look like, and she’s using the skin of another animal to do it!
Riot in the streets!
2. She has magical powers.
