The parade of gorgeous gowns at the Oscars is always a sight to behold, and the red carpet is often the best part of the show. This year was no different, except we were particularly delighted to see the imaginative stylings of several new mothers-to-be. From Emily Blunt's ethereal train to Chrissy Teigen's sophisticated neckline, the silhouettes offered a distinctly modern perspective on maternity wear. Bravo, ladies.

Emily Blunt's of-the-moment powder pink Prada worked well with her fair complexion. Ornamental silver beading lended the look a more whimsical feel. The fitted bodice flowed gently into a softly draping train, a perfect silhouette for an earlier pregnancy.

Anne Hathaway played up her glowing skin, contrasting it with a heavy Cleopatra eye at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. The sheer illusion neckline and fluttery long sleeves of her gold-sequined Naeem Khan dress mirrored the subtly sultry effect.

Chrissy Teigen embraced her curves in a form-fitting lace gown from Marchesa. While an empire waist always flatters, the deep and angular neckline enhanced the rest of the look's feminine lines.

Hannah Bagshawe held her own in Alexander McQueen with Academy Award-winning husband Eddie Redmayne. The on-trend high neckline elongated her figure, especially with the regal gold collar detail.
