Katy Perry’s Maternity Style Is Off to an Exuberant Start

Last week, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announced that they are expecting their first child together. “We’re excited and happy,” the singer confirmed on Instagram. (She also debuted her growing baby bump in her new music video for “Never Worn White,” showcasing her side profile at the very end.) Since breaking the news, the singer has jumped right back into superstar mode: this weekend, she performed at the ICC Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup Final in Melbourne, Australia. Both on and off the stage, Perry offered a first glimpse at her maternity style—and, spoiler alert, it still includes her signature playful aesthetic.

While most mothers veer towards practical and comfy clothes throughout their pregnancies, Perry has, thus far, retained her usual eclectic fashion sense (though it’s still early on). Just today, she was seen hitting the streets of the Australian city wearing a vibrant floral dress with tied shoulder straps from By Johnny. The $360 style, which is now sold out, had a retro sensibility; she styled it with sweet accessories such as pastel blue slingback and yellow earrings.

Over the weekend, the singer’s performance looks at the cricket match equally sparked joy: she took to the stage in a slew of theatrical looks, including two groovy minidresses, and a color-blocked Mara Hoffman frock. She is a pop star known for her kitschy costumes, after all, and Perry clearly won’t be shying away from her unabashed love of color and prints in the weeks ahead. Because new motherhood is one of life’s most celebratory events—why not have the fashion to match?
