KIM Kardashian may have pipped the former Kate Middleton to the delivery room with her baby girl born at the weekend but the debate rages on about their pregnancy fashion styles.
Baby K, born to Kanye West and Kardashian, the star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was born more than a month prematurely on Saturday.
By yesterday afternoon, the little girl had not yet been named but celeb watchers speculated that her name would begin with a “K”.
The two most famous pregnant women in the western world were at one stage both due to have their babies on July 11 – but although the brown-eyed brunettes share the scrutiny of the public, they do not have much else in common, and certainly not their fashion sense.
On one side of the Atlantic Ocean, there is the elegant Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, is always impeccably dressed in a conservative yet stylish way.
She is expecting her first child with husband Prince William, 30.
The duchess, 31, has mostly kept to classic dresses and light-weight coats.
She enjoys heels and boots but they usually are a classic court in beige, black or neutral colour.
Last week, in her eighth month, she wore a figure-concealing animal-print dress to launch a ship along with elegant black pumps with a modest heel.
Across in America, there is reality show celebrity Kardashian, 32, who rarely veered from her signature style of tight skirts and plunging cleavage – even though there was a lot more of her to fill the fabric.
She did swap her towering heels for flat sandals in the past month, a concession to the swollen feet often seen in the third trimester of pregnancy.
Both women have been embracing their pregnancy curves – and giving pregnant moms-to-be the world over fashion inspiration to follow their own style.
