There’s no question Hollywood had a baby boom in 2012. And in celebration, our readers have been voting for the best maternity fashion trends in our 5th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

From Reese Witherspoon‘s breezy summer dresses, to Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s casual chic statements, to Kristin Cavallari‘s effortless feminine fashions, let’s take a look at our favorite maternity styles of the year.

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar:

Our readers love Sarah Michelle Gellar! Not only is she one of our favorite celebrity moms year-after-year, we can’t get enough of her fabulous fashions. And when she is dressing a baby bump, we all watch with admiration.

Before welcoming her son Rocky in September, SMG led the way in maternity trends this year. From going casual in skinny jeans and tees, to leggy floral prints and layers, we couldn’t get enough of Buffy‘s maternity trends.

  • Reese Witherspoon:

New mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon was simply radiant with breezy summer dresses throughout her third pregnancy.

Before welcoming son Tennessee in September, Reese delighted us with her stylish maternity duds. From polka dots, to stripes, to solid colors, the Oscar-winner often opted for above-the-knee dresses, flat sandals, and layered necklaces throughout her pregnancy. We loved it!

  • Kourtney Kardashian:

From casual chic to red carpet ready, Kourtney Kardashian sure knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before welcoming her second child – daughter Penelope - in July, the reality TV starlet was the queen of polished pregnancy looks. Whether it was at the latest Hollywood event or at the local farmer’s market, the reality TV mama did not disappoint. For her everyday maternity style, Kourt kept things casual chic in fitted duds showcasing her burgeoning belly, paired with the latest trends such as oversized handbags, fedoras, and blazers.

  • Kristin Cavallari:

The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari was one of those lucky women who was ‘all belly’ during pregnancy.

And she dressed that bump beautifully while expecting her first child – son Camden who was born in August. From feminine flowing maxi dresses, to mini maternity looks, to skinny jeans and form-fitted tops, we could not get enough of Kristin’s maternity style.

  • Camila Alves:

Brazilian beauty Camila Alves knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Currently expecting her third child with Matthew McConaughey, the model mom has flaunted her maternity curves with fitted dresses and colorful prints as her belly grows. We can’t wait to hear their exciting news.

  • Alyson Hannigan:

Throughout her second pregnancy, How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan looked simply radiant.

Before welcoming her second daughter, Keeva, in May, Alyson opted for maxi dresses, jeans with fitted tops, and leggings with tunic tops. Sporting casual chic fashions with layered accessories, we loved seeing the latest maternity duds from the down-to-earth expectant mama.

  • Gisele Bündchen

No one rocks a bikini bump quite like supermodel Gisele Bündchen! And during her second pregnancy with daughter Vivian, the Brazilian beauty bared her bump on the beach just last month.

We also saw the model mom in fitted sweaters, breezy cotton tops and short shorts throughout her pregnancy. Her casual style made her one of the best dressed expectant moms in Hollywood this past year.

  • Vanessa Lachey:

During her first pregnancy with son Camden, Vanessa Lachey dressed to impress in beautiful maxi dresses, bold prints, and layered looks. And not to mention, motherhood looks amazing on the brunette beauty!

  • Megan Fox:

Sexy screen star Megan Fox looked every bit the radiant mom-to-be while expecting her first child – son Noah – over this past year.

Although she remained private during her pregnancy, we did see her a few times wearing casual chic layers, pretty prints and form-fitted tops.

  • Molly Sims:

Model mom Molly Sims had that glow during her first pregnancy with son Brooks.

The actress kept a keen sense of style while pregnant with a variety of maxi dresses and layers. “I love long skirts,” Molly told Celebrity Baby Scoop of her favorite maternity look. “People think you should dress bigger. But the tighter you dress, the thinner you look,” she shared with us.
