Jessica Alba's Mami-to-Be Style

The bun is out of the oven! Jessica Alba, 27, just welcomed her daughter, Honor Marie Warren, into the world with new husband Cash Warren. The star made no bones about how pregnancy transformed her life, and after enduring nine months of morning sickness, fatigue, weight gain and bloating, it can be especially tough for women like Alba to get their bombshell bodies back so soon after giving birth. But with her glowing beauty and tasteful fashion choices—and no doubt, help from a few professionals—Alba proved that pregnancy can also be a time of continued fabulousness.

As for non-celebrity expecting moms, we can't count on a glam squad of stylists to maintain our looks. We've got to fend for ourselves! Here are some realistic guidelines to get you (or the expecting mami you know) started:

1. Take advantage of the beaming skin that pregnancy can give you, and show off that glow!

2. Black tights are a surefire way to keep legs looking slim, while still making you feel dressed up and sexy.

3. If you're covering up your expanding waistline, then try showing off something else in exchange, like your collarbones or legs.

4. Thank God leggings and flowy, full-length dresses are in style this season, because they make perfect sense for the pregnant bod.
