Sorry I’m a bit slow today. Been distracted reading this at Maclean’s. F*cking hilarious.


So I guess we’ve been spoiled a little. With all these celebrities getting pregnant and capitalising on their pregnancies as a boost to their careers via the paparazzi, we’ve been treated almost on a daily basis to super cute maternity wear. Some stars have actually become even MORE fashionable while they’re expecting.

Like Ashlee Simpson. She’s never looked so good.

Once again, yet another example that they have it so much better than we do…but wait. Before you start hating on famous people over the inequality…along comes Taupe to save the day.

As always, Jennifer Garner is the great equaliser, reminding us every day that famous people can be plain too. Especially during pregnancy.

This is Taupe yesterday out for lunch in what can only be described as the antithesis of Naomi Watts. Then again, she set the bar kinda low. At the very least… it’s not this.

And for those of you who want to defend her by saying “she’s not like that, she doesn’t care, she’s just a regular mom”…


She’s the Jessica Biel of the Hollywood yummy mummy. Taupe hearts paps. Trust. And if that’s her motivation, if she’s giving a “performance” for the tabloids, then judging her costume is entirely appropriate.

As for the costume itself: do regular moms pick their Violets up from daycare holding a red Valentino bag valued at $2000? This gray one ain’t cheap either.

That’s the point, non? If Taupe was wanting for comfort and hanging around in schlubbs all the time, I totally get it. But Taupe shops. Actively. And expensively. And she buys what she thinks looks good. And, too often, THIS is the result.

Seriously. The Rachel Zoe Project needs to be all over this.
