“You want it to be comfortable. I think it’s important that it’s sort of classic in design when you’re pregnant, keep it simple in some way, says Philipps, adding, “Nobody wants to see a bejeweled pregnant lady from top to bottom.”
The Cougar Town actress, 33 who is expecting her second baby with her husband Marc Silverstein, is not new to walking a Red Carpet while pregnant - Philipps was pregnant with her first child five years ago - daughter Birdie Leigh - when she attended a movie premiere. Back then, her maternity fashion pick for the occasion did not work out as she had hoped.
“I ended up getting an amazing dress, and then much to my chagrin, five weeks later, pregnant Angelina Jolie wore it, which is devastating. Really? You want to be wearing the same dress as the sexiest woman alive? It’s terrible.”
Philipps, the official “social media ambassador” for the SAG Awards — Tweeting behind-the-scenes dish for fans on her @busyphilipps25 handle(#SAGawards), feels confident that unless Angie is hiding a really big secret, the same fashion mishap won't be happening again this year.
She does, however, have one other little concern.
“I just have to make sure my shoes are going to be comfortable and big enough so that they my feet don’t start swelling,” notes Philipps. “That’s not an attractive thought.”
