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?

Kate will win this DAILY. She always looks great. A person who takes good care of herself and cares about her health. Fergie needs a stylist, Jessica cannot help herself and I cannot say anything bad about her. Just a lost soul trying to find happiness with a fiance who’s using her, and KK is a disaster of epic proportion.

Well, since all EXCEPT Jessica are barely showing, how can anyone even say what their maternity style is? They’re still wearing regular clothes.

Life goes on on

First Kate and then Jessica.

I love how only one is really showing…

I’d be afraid I would trip and fall in those pants Kim is wearing and hurt myself or the baby.Just seems like she keeps getting it wrong.Or maybe Kanye’s still dressing her.Fergie’s pregnancy style will be an interesting thing to watch.But as long as these girls are comfortable,I guess that’s all that matters.Comfort & a lot of confidence.

Not a big fan of any of them but Kate and Jessica look the most normal. Kim K. doesn’t even deserve to be pregnant (the baby needs to be pre-delivery taken into care) and well, Fergie, pregnant or no, she always looks like she is dirty and needs to be bathed.

i can’t see kim’s bump in ANY of her pictures. And her clothes are kind of horrific at times.

What is going on with Fergie’s eyebrows in that photo???
