The prized photoshoot: Photos of pregnant celebrities are now serious business
Undoubtedly, celebrity pregnancy photo shoots influence their followers with their dressing, location, investment.
Pop icon Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child. The news has been making the rounds on social media after a photo of the sensational star on the streets of New York showing off her baby bump went viral some time ago.
Motherhood has always encouraged people to take the first step and most like to certify this phase as a milestone in life. Why not? It’s about celebrating every day of life. For example, in recent years, professional maternity photo shoots have become a growing trend, with couples making the experience a lifelong memory.
But the news to spread the newcomer knows no bounds and it is rather exaggerated. A rather more sophisticated approach to these shoots could be either in the middle of a forest, a swimming pool or sometimes with pets. For example, in June 2016,
Canadian-American musician Alanis Morissette has posted her pregnancy photo in a swimming pool.
Undoubtedly, celebrity pregnancy photo shoots influence their followers with their dressing, location, investment. Does this sound like an event?
However, this isn’t a new social media sensation, as all the love and hate from fans who follow end up celebrating, supporting your favorite icons, or criticizing them for unnecessarily airing their personal lives.
In Rihanna’s case, the essence of flaunting the bump on a cold New York winter street or the colors of the couple’s attire – pink and blue – have left many wondering if the power couple are expecting a boy. or a girl. Plus, an exorbitantly priced photo shoot of the global superstar in her belly jewelry can be something exclusive for photographers. It might have made the right fashion statement had she been able to announce this news in her Savage X Fenty, a lingerie brand founded by the Barbadian singer. Reports from the past have also revealed Rihanna’s love of celebrating pregnant women in her runway shows for Fenty.
But there’s something about being vintage, and her love for a classic style is evident in these photos. Shot by famed photographer Miles Diggs, also known as Diggzy, Rihanna wore Christian Lacroix’s vintage cross in colored stones, a vintage Chanel pink silk puffer jacket from the house’s Fall/Winter 1996 collection and ripped jeans at the knees of Vetements with a vintage Chanel belt. A$AP Rocky wore leather pants, a blue Carhartt denim jacket, a varsity hoodie and a black beanie.
Half-naked, undressed images are nothing new for celebs who flaunt their bellies. Well, Demi Moore’s pregnancy photo shoot for Vanity Fair in 1991, who is expecting her second child with husband Bruce Willis, caused a stir with a bare midriff and a giant diamond ring, or another Vanity cover shoot. Fair where Serena Williams posed in 2017.
Last January, English reality TV personality and model Olivia Bowen took to Instagram to sport her baby bump in Boux Avenue lingerie. She is expecting her first child with husband, TV star Alex Bowen. Images of Beyonce, Britney Spears, Cindy Crawford, Ciara, Gigi Hadid have already set high standards for such photoshoots. As Beyonce draped in a floral Instagram photo showed off her bare bump and wore a bump-revealing sequin dress to the Grammys, Kylie Jenner has some mesmerizing images from her upcoming Valentine’s Day collection promoting new Kylie-themed cosmetics of love. Singer Katy Perry in 2020 was pregnant with daughter Daisy Dove with Orlando Bloom and showed off her bump on social media and said on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show: ‘I’m really grateful for my body, and I have so much respect for other women going through this process. You get a whole new perspective on being pregnant.
Finally, what is encouraging is a striking collection of maternity fashion available from labels big and small. Expectant mothers do not hide the bump and rock it with such ease. Wavy dresses, maternity corsets and monokinis make a fashion statement and define this trend. Be it actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who walked the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week in a Sabyasachi outfit in 2016, Neha Dhupia, Kalki Koechlin, Sameera Reddy, Lisa Haydon, Meghan Markle, Khloe Kardashian, Katy Perry…all of them have embraced and inspired millions with their glam maternity dressing.
