Tamu McPherson of All The Pretty Birds, before Dior Couture, Paris, July 2014.

Such a great look on Tamu. Love everything about her outfit especially that pleated denim skirt (even though she was freezing in it! Paris was unseasonably cold and rainy during couture this season....which is why Lee, Tamu and I went to lunch at Le Castiglione instead of shooting one day :)).

Paris Couture Fashion Week AW 2014....Nasiba

Buro 24/7's Nasiba Adilova, before Dior Couture, Paris, July 2014.

So many beautiful pregnant women at couture, including Nasiba. It was a lesson in how to dress your bump in the last few months of pregnancy (or disguise it in the first few months ;). I loved everything Nasiba helps that she was glowing (a cliche but true!).

Recreat Nasiba's look (kind of):

Capes and ponchos are brilliant for bumps (so easy to throw on) but so is a flattering a-line coat or shirtdress. Add bright, fun accessories to an all-white look like Nasiba has.

Neon bag: Reed Krakoff Mini Atlantique tote, Valentino Rockstud leather clutch, or Annabel Ingall Jojo cross body bag
