The glowing mom-to-be stepped out in New York for a Target Cat & Jack brand event on Thursday, and the picture-perfect star looked as pretty as a flower posing in a flattering floral-printed maternity dress. The Cafe Society actress showed off her growing baby bump in the figure-skimming design, which featured a plunging tie-front neckline, a pink-and-blue flower pattern, and a stunning thigh-high slit, which revealed the mom-of-one's toned legs. The blonde stunner finished off her blooming ensemble with a white crochet clutch with embroidered flowers, side-parted waves, a swipe of pink lipstick, and delicately beaded light blue heels, which she admitted she changed out of right after the event. The Gossip Girl alum took to Instagram to share a hilarious photo of her transformation post-event, which she captioned, "Milkshake: check. Comfortable shoes: check. Having a slit in your dress to make you feel better about the aforementioned: check."
