Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement at the 2011 MTV VMAs — and amazing purple sequined tux — has definitely set the stage for all the moms to follow to do their future offspring proud sartorially.

This year, things were no different as several moms-to-be slayed the VMAs “white” carpet with their maternity style. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

Blushing Baby Mama

Just four days after officially announcing that she’s pregnant with her third child, Teen Mom 2′s Jenelle Evans rocked a neutral gown with intricate pearl detailing on the back. The dress is a safe choice given the wacky getups usually pulled out for the VMAs, but we would never throw shade at such a pretty look. Bonus: The blush color totally plays off her pregnancy glow. Keep it classy, Jenelle.

Green is good

Nicole Tuck, whom you might recognize as DJ Khaled’s fiancée, showed off her baby bump in a mini forest-green shirtdress complete with shoulder cutouts. Despite the short hemline, Nicole gets points for pulling off a flattering, fall-ready frock. Plus, we’re loving that megawatt gold clutch.

Baring it all!

After those two relatively tame looks, Laura Perlongo’s shirtless stunt is definitely a shocker, but one that we can’t help but admire. Laura, the fiancée of Catfish‘s Nev Schulman, let her baby bump do the talking by pairing it with a clingy choker–body chain doodad, a bomber jacket, and, well, not much else. But that chain is so cool!

We imagine that a LOT of double-sided tape is at play here. It’s a fabulous look, and brings a new level to bold pregnancy fashion!

One thing’s for sure: The VMAs continue to be a place where pregnancy is totally celebrated, and we’re so onboard with that!
