After all, she somehow always manages to look chic, and we can’t imagine she will look anything short of stunning in her royal maternity wear.

Kate has been a huge fan of designer Alexander McQueen (she even chose the designer to create her wedding dress) and it seems that her love for McQueen is going to continue while she’s expecting.  The Duchess of Cambridge attended BBC's annual Sports Personality Of The Year Awards Monday night to present Bradley Wiggins and London 2012 chief Lord Coe with a SPOTY trophy and the Lifetime Achievement award, and she wore an emerald colored McQueen gown to the event.

The floor-length gown featured bell sleeves and a v-neckline, and we can’t help but notice, she looked flawless. With just the tiniest little baby bump showing, she pulled off the dress, making us that much more excited to see what she wears as her bump gets significantly bigger. Will she continue to rock McQueen designs? Only time will tell. 

Tell us: What do you think of Kate’s dress?

It isn't a maternity dress. It's a normal dress that's being worn by a woman who is in the early stages of pregnancy. It will be a while before she'll need true "maternity" clothes.

    The 10 beauty products every model has in her medicine cabinet

    Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
