A Night With Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe Rachel Zoe

Last week we celebrated A Pea in the Pod’s new and exclusive collection with Rachel Zoe in Los Angeles at The Chateau Marmont. The hotel is timeless and every bit glamourous, a perfect choice for the intimate gathering in honor of Rachel and her first ever maternity collection.

Upon arriving, Rachel, who donned a one shoulder black caftan, and husband Rodger excitedly shared photos taken earlier in the day of sons Skyler Morrison and Kaius Jagger. Hollywood mammas and mammas-to-be Jaime King, Casey Wilson, Vanessa Lachey, Tiffani Thiessen, Claire Coffee and Elizabeth Berkley joined the fete soon after. We all indulged in mocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres like pesto parmesan tortellini skewers and parmesan cups filled with mozzarella, tomato and basil.

Jaime, Casey, Tiffani and Claire all wore pieces from the Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod, opting for the Printed Caftan Maternity Dress, Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, Sleeveless Maternity Maxi Dress and Printed Shift Maternity Dress. I love how each made her outfit her own, really demonstrating the versatility of the collection and how flattering the pieces are on different figures. Casey chose a leopard printed open-toe high heel (totally glam!) while Claire added a denim jacket, for a more playful yet chic statement. Jaime, who wore her hair long and flowing, nailed the quintessential Bohemian aesthetic Rachel’s pieces are known for. Plus, she brought the best accessory of the night by far—her mom!

The party ended on a sweet note with to-go boxes from Dana’s Bakery which included birthday cake flavored macarons, a precursor to another party Rachel would be attending later in the week: son Skyler Morrison’s fourth birthday party!

 

Did You Know?….Demi Was The 1st To Bare Her Bump

DEMI MOORE VANITY FAIR PREGNANT - Google Search_2015-03-12_13-07-36

 

In 1991, a seven-month pregnant Demi Moore, who would become a mother of three, posed nude on the cover of the August issue of Vanity Fair, showing off not only her baby bump, but her fierce confidence. Demi has inspired women in Hollywood and everywhere through her style, but it was this iconic picture, photographed by the famed Annie Leibovitz, that showed the world once and for all there is nothing chicer than being proud of your expecting figure.

Kate Middleton Can-Do-No-Wrong Maternity Style

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kate Middleton can do no wrong when it comes to many things, and her maternity style is one of them! She is nearing the end of her pregnancy, looking as amazing as always. Take a peek at my picks of her best dressed. From soft palettes to those pretty petticoat jackets…she’s nailed chic and feminine maternity dressing. We are so happy and lucky to have collections from across the pond like Isabella Oliver, of course Seraphine (which Kate has been seen wearing!) and soon to be introducing our collaboration with Madderson London! I will keep you updated on that! -Olivia

Get The Look // Tiffani Thiessen

Get The Look: Tiffani Thiessen

From her adorable baby announcement, to her chic and effortless dress choices, actress Tiffany Theissen is totally nailing her second pregnancy! Expecting a little boy later this year, Tiffani has been spotted out in LA promoting her new Cooking Channel show, Dinner at Tiffani’s, wearing A Pea in the Pod.  Seen in our Splendid Maternity and Tart Collection dresses at different events, we think you’ll love her maternity style too! –Olivia

DID YOU KNOW?… The Bump’s Out of the Bag

Grace-Kelly-Hermes

DID YOU KNOW: The classic Kelly Bag from Hermès was actually an attempt to hide Princess Grace Kelly’s (then) private baby bump? She used the bag as a designer disguise, which was photographed, featured on the cover of Life Magazine and of course in demand by everyone! This pregnant princess of Monaco sure knew how to make a pregnancy announcement! -Olivia

GET THE LOOK // JESSICA BIEL

Jessica Biel Maternity Style

It’s only been a month since Justin Timberlake announced he and wife Jessica Biel were expecting their first child together. While the couple may have been keeping the pregnancy under wraps, we assume it wasn’t because she didn’t know what to wear! Much like her pre-pregnancy style, Jessica’s maternity picks have not disappointed and we were especially excited to see her wearing A Pea in the Pod!

While on set last week in New Orleans, she wore our Splendid maternity jogger pants, and a few weeks earlier, she was spotted in LA in our Secret Fit Belly® AG Maternity Jeans, both available exclusively at A Pea in the Pod. I love how she paired the jeans with a clean blazer and kitten heels- a perfectly chic and go-to look for any mom-to-be. Between making movies, opening her first restaurant and a new baby, this momma-to-be has quite a lot to look forward to and we know she’ll do it all in flawless fashion!

Molly, who is expecting her second child, a girl due this Spring, will appear in our Summer 2015 campaign, modeling the latest trends and most-wanted brands arriving in stores and online at A Pea in the Pod beginning this March. A mother, model, actress, and now author, Molly exemplifies the A Pea in the Pod mom-to-be who does it all with exceptional style

The campaign shoot was photographed by famed and talented photographer Justin Coit back in January. A private home in Tarzana on a quintessential LA warm and sunny day was the perfect backdrop to capture the feel of the cool summer collection. Mariel Haenn of styling dream team Rob and Mariel, whose clients also include other stylish mommas Jennifer Lopez and Charlize Theron, infused Mediterranean glamour with LA chic with her chosen accessories (the wide-brimmed hat is perfection!).

After spending only a short time with Molly, it is easy to see why her first book, The Everyday Supermodel, is a best-seller: she is full of amazing tips you can actually put to work on your own. She instantly made me feel like we’d known each other for years—I wish!
