If you ever thought that giving up fashion was a prerequisite for becoming a mom, then think again! Maternity style has evolved over the years and only a few have been endowed with the ability to make pregnancy style look so good and effortless. New York-based Tanzanian ex-beauty queen, top model and new mom, Millen Magese recently released a series of photos showcasing her fabulous maternity style and we can’t help but raise two thumbs up for how perfectly she slayed in every look!
News of Millen’s pregnancy and delivery came as a shock to many of her fans when she took to Instagram to reveal that she had recently given birth to a baby boy. She went on to reveal that in October 2016, her doctor confirmed that an IVF procedure she had undergone was successful and that she was indeed pregnant! Millen has previously shared her long struggle with endometriosis publicly which led to the launch of her foundation ‘Millen Magese Foundation’. The foundation strives to promote gender equality and empower women and girls in Tanzania through improved access to education and reproductive health services.
The renowned model has walked on the runways of some of the world’s most prestigious fashion shows in Africa, Europe, America and Asia. She has worked with leading designers like Karen Millen, Ralph Lauren, Deola Sageo, Tiffany Amber, David Tlale and many others. She has also been featured on the covers of Cosmopolitan, Elle Magazine and Glamour.
This celebrated runway queen is an absolute stunner on and off the runway and her pregnancy style was no different. From metallic pleated and flared pieces to body con blouse and skirts, Millen constantly dished uber chic mom-to-be style goals throughout her pregnancy – reminding us all that pregnancy is not a valid excuse to lose yourself as you go through the greatest art of creativity.
