It was only last week that Rachel Zoe was announcing to the world that she's pregnant with her second child. Hoorah! And here she is, hopping from FROW to FROW at New York Fashion Week like a true trooper. Grazia Daily spotted her taking a VIP seat at the Victoria Beckham show this morning without even a hint of a bump - her black tunic top under a tassled jacket with flared trousers plus obligatory floppy hat and ginormous sunnies ensured she looked as chic as ever. So as a pro of maternity style, we were eager to her tips for dressing avec bump.

'Everybody carries differently so there are no exact rules,' Rachel told us. 'It's about what works for your body. For me, it has to be comfortable because I can't run around working if I'm restricted. I tend to wear a lot of tunics, but I still wear my same jeans and tuxedo pants and it's all about the right jacket.' Although she doesn't name anyone who's working mummy-to-be style particuarly well - 'I don't pay attention to that sort of thing' - she does admit that it's tricky for anyone to dress a bump. 'It's not easy and it takes MUCH longer to get ready.'
If there's anyone who gives good bump style, it's Lady Beckham. 'She's a dear friend and she's a brilliant designer,' Rachel says of Victoria. 'I was at her first show, which was very intimate, and now we're here 10 seasons later! I absolutley love seeing her grow so much. It's incredible.' As an uber-stylist, does this mean she'll be dressing her clients in a bit of VB? 'I think all of my clients have had a Victoria Beckham moment already.' And something tells us there'll be many more moments to come.
