Where Does Fergie's Maternity Style Fall On a Scale From Mild to Wild?

When we heard that Fergie was expecting a baby Black Eyed Pea, we were on the edge of our seats waiting to see how the famously funky star‘s maternity style would play out. Luckily she didn’t keep us waiting long, stepping out with husband Josh Duhamel Tuesday in a shearling bomber jacket, yellow sweater dress and circular sunglasses.

“It’s clear to see how happy they are,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. “They are really excited.” And we are really excited to see how her outfits fit into the range of maternity style — from low-key to high-wattage — that we’ve been spotting from L.A. to London.

On the “mild” end of the spectrum is the Duchess of Cambridge (left), who has dressed her barely-there bump in conservative coats and this elegant Max Mara wrap dress.

A little wilder is Jessica Simpson, wearing a pink jacket with Jessica Simpson Maternity leggings, who sticks to the same styles she favors even when not pregnant (blazers, maxis and sky-high heels) but isn’t shy about putting her fuller curves on display with plunging V-necks.

And on the far end of the “mild to wild”-o-meter: Kim Kardashian, of course, who has put her bump on display in feathers, crop tops, mesh, sequins and sheer numbers — including this onesie pantsuit.

As it turns out, these stars’ maternity style isn’t so different from how they dressed pre-baby … which makes us even more excited to see how the rest of their pregnancy wardrobe will go. Tell us: Who’s the best-dressed mom-to-be?

Really???? We are comparing now? They are pregnant are not even on the same wave length in careers or style wise…..

Too bad the style of marriage is no longer valued.

Can’t really compare, can you? One is royalty and expected to be very conservative two are are glitzy and very into fashion and the other one is Kim K

Kate always looks very elegant as she is a classy lady while Jessica always looks tacky followed by Kim so these two are in need of a make-over on how to dress like a lady…there is no demand for exposing saggy boobs in skin tight outfits especially being pregnant. Kate is the world’s most beautiful lady!!!!!

What is with Fergie’s eyebrows? Or is that her sunglasses?

I can’t believe Kate is even in the list with these other 3. She will out-class them without even trying…hands down. Her style is impeccable. :)

Maybe it’s because Fergie isn’t showing yet, but she’s tiny enough she probably won’t show for a few more weeks. Kim just looks fat these days – the outfits she chooses aren’t doing her any favors. Kate looks adorable as always and Jessica looks good this time around. I’m currently pregnant with my 2nd child and started to show right away. Haven’t put on any extra weight as of my last doctors appointment, but I definitely had to get maternity clothes before the end of my 1st trimester.

kate needs to eat!!!

Please stop lumping Kate with the rest of these women. She has style, manners and class. All Jessica, Fergie and Kim have is money and notoriety.

Love Jess’ shoes! Fergie’s face scares me!! I’m no perfect 10, but I do not like her face.
