© TOPSTAR PicturesThe Duchess of Cambridge has repeatedly proved that she is no snob when it comes to shopping (she is always spotted at her favorite stores Zara and Reiss, among others), and when it comes to her maternity wear, Middleton continues to keep it real!

The mother-to-be showed off a chic printed Zara cape while shopping in West London on Wednesday, which she paired with black leggings a black scarf and riding boots.

And Zara isn’t the only retailer that she is gracing with her presence while she’s expecting. Just last week, she was also seen inside a London Gap store looking for leggings. We can’t wait to see what other adorable ensembles she puts together as her baby bump continues to grow.

Kate's great but your copywriter should know that the plaid is NOT a "print" but a woven pattern.

I am hoping that the trend of super-tight, stretch maternity clothes (and short halter tops and bikinis) will end soon. Nothing like a pregnant woman walking toward you and the first thing you notice is her inside-out navel, highlighted by her skin-tight shirt or dress.

Kate is proving that she is a beautiful and tactful lady!! She should be a wonderful example for all women who are pregnant.  The clothes that are worn by most today are decusting and so ugly,  It is  like someone who is trying to strangle herself and her baby,  Ladies take heed and watch the Duchess as she grows and glows till delivery!  It should be quite educaional to all!!!!

I agree with everyone Kate is a beautiful woman, and I am sure that she will set the trend on how to dress when you are expecting. There are young women out here who dress as though they are trying to get a date (if you know what I mean).People can see that you are expecting, so DRESS TO IMPRESS!!!!!!!

Really, iis it necessary to put "In the Oven"   or " Peas in a Pod"- I feel it is disrespecful to the mother, and it is not cute.

I am a mother of 3, and I did not feel anything but proud  !  I do think the Duchess will be  a good example of what

motherhood is all about.

    10 of the sexiest denim campaigns of all time

    Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
