Stylist to the stars Mary Alice Stephenson has some unusual fashion advice for pregnant Kim Kardashian: “Gain like 70 pounds and wear a muumuu.” Say what?

Actually, Mary Alice’s advice isn’t really about style at all — it’s about suggesting that Kim really embrace the fact that she is pregnant. While speaking with Page Six at a charity function, Mary Alice recalled her own pregnancy.

“I just retreated to my kitchen and my TV room and didn’t go out and just took care of myself and my baby,” she said. “It doesn’t really matter what [Kim]’s wearing, she’s a curvy woman and you gain weight when pregnant. Most actresses and supermodels are anorexic — most of them don’t gain enough weight to have a healthy pregnancy.”

Given the recent indications that Kim might actually be dieting while pregnant, we sure hope Mary Alice’s advice to heart and stops worrying so much about the natural weight gain that comes with pregnancy. Perhaps if Kim embraces more flowy, forgiving garments, she may become less self-conscious about the weight gain and start to truly enjoy what should be such a special time in her life.

But whether Kim trades in her tight French fashions for the roomy loungewear favored by Hawaiians and grandmothers the world over, Mary Alice’s final word on the matter stays with us:

“People need to support pregnant women no matter who they are.” ...Or what they wear, we might add.
