After the birth of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ daughter we were on the lookout for the next uber-cute celebrity baby. It seems our wishes have been answered with the announcement by Blake Lively on her lifestyle blog, Preserve, that she is expecting a baby with husband Ryan Reynolds.

The announcement included a beautiful photograph of the star with her little bump showing under a floral patterned dress. Blake proved her style will not fade throughout her pregnancy and she looks as gorgeous as ever. We know she’ll be one stylish mum-to-be and to celebrate the star’s special news we’ve taken a trip down memory lane and selected some of our favourite looks.

Vogue charted that red Versace plunging gown as one of the most memorable looks of all time at the Emmy awards. We couldn’t agree more, as from that moment on, Blake secured her place as one of the hottest hollywood stars of the red carpet. With her hair scraped back to showcase her enviable body, she smouldered in the revealing gown.

The California girl wore this beautiful Chanel sheer white dress alongside her co-star and now husband Ryan Reynolds for the Green Lantern premiere in Hollywood. The image regularly pops up in discussions of her wedding to Reynolds because of its distinctly bridal influence, but for her real wedding in 2012 she actually wore a tulle custom made gown by Marchesa for an intimate affair at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant.

Not only does Blake command the red carpet she also nails an off-duty casual outfit. Alongside red carpet appearances the actress has been a front row attendee for several years. This Micheal Kors ensemble caught our eye for its effortlessly elegant look.  With her signature golden locks in tumbling waves and golden skin peeping out from the slit skirt, this outfit had star appeal.

Regularly walking the red carpet as a young, hot and single lady Blake now has her handsome husband on her arm and they certainly make a beautiful couple. At Cannes Film Festival earlier this year the actress wore a bespoke beaded Gucci dress,perfecting her red carpet ensemble with vintage Hollywood waves. Her beau wore a classic tuxedo that complimented her sensational red carpet attire.

In one of her last public appearances before announcing her pregnancy Blake dabbled with the sixties trend that we’re all loving this season. Wearing a gold mini dress and pink headband at the CFDA awards in June she showed us how to elevate the fun, youthful trend into a sophisticated stand-out outfit.

Whether it’s smouldering red carpet outfits, complimentary his and hers outfits or casual attire, the star always looks stylish and beautiful. We’re sure the trend will continue throughout her pregnancy and we can’t wait to meet the little stylish star in the making.
