Reese Witherspoon has shown how it is possible for pregnant women to look dazzling despite having a growing bump while attending a event.

The actress appeared on the red carpet at a special preview screening of Paul McCartney’s new video My Valentine wearing a black dress designed by the musician’s daughter Stella McCartney.

With long sleeves and a knee-length hem, Witherspoon kept well covered up, but her growing baby bump was visible.

She accessorised her look with gold jewellery, including a chunky bangle and dangling gold earrings with filigree details that reflected the cut-out designs on her dress.

The event was a star-studded affair, as some of Hollywood’s biggest names attended to see a screening of the video, which features Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp doing sign language along to the lyrics of the song.

Dressing in clothes designed by Stella was a theme of the evening, as Gwen Stefani and Miranda Kerr both attended wearing black outfits that had sheer panels.
