Adriana Lima is proving maternity wear doesn't have to be dull by showcasing her pregnancy in a bold black dress with special bump cut-out.

The supermodel was attending the world premiere of Top Gun: Maverick at the Cannes 2022 Film Festival with her boyfriend Andre Lemmers and delivered a dollop of daring maternity fashion in an outfit that was all about accentuating her growing baby bump.

Lima turned heads in the floor-skimming Balmain gown, which featured a special cut-out to highlight her changing shape and suggested the mum-to-be isn't about to let her bump hinder her style credentials.

She paired the look with strappy black heels and wore her hair in a simple yet chic do.

The supermodel announced in February that the she was expecting her third baby with partner, Lemmers, by sharing a sweet pregnancy reveal to TikTok.

Lima is already a mum to daughters Valentina, 12, and Sienna, nine, whom she co-parents with ex-husband, basketball player Marko Jarić.

The star's unique maternity look seemed to be straight from the sartorial style book of Rihanna, who has showcased some super daring looks during her pregnancy.

From crop tops to see-through dresses, cut-out jumpsuits to body-skimming mini-skirts, throughout her pregnancy, Rihanna continued to push traditional maternity style boundaries, proving that no style should be off limits for soon-to-be-mums.

The singer's bold choices certainly seem to have gone down well on social media with many praising her for tearing up the maternity rule book.

"No one should even bother getting pregnant after you, we aren’t interested," one user wrote.

"Fashion game strong af," agreed another.

"Baby bumps done right," another fan commented, while another simply wrote: "ICONIC".

Lima and Rihanna aren't the only mums-to-be pushing maternity style boundaries either.

Of course, Kylie Jenner also recently revealed quite the maternity wardrobe while pregnant with her second child, a son.

Unlike the beauty entrepreneur's first pregnancy, which remained a secret until close to the birth, second time around Jenner was pregnant and proud, and rocked her growing bump in some pretty incredible outfits.

From a bump-skimming white leather mini dress and coat combo, to a revealing sheer, lace jumpsuit, Jenner wasn't about to let her bump get in the way of her fashion credentials.

Of course, she likely took some maternity style tips from sister Kim Kardashian, who sported a similar daring see-through ensemble when she was pregnant with son Saint, now six, at the 2015 LACMA Film + Art Gala in Los Angeles.
