Our hearts may have melted when Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to make her adorable pregnancy announcement, but it’s now time to toughen up and delve into the nitty-gritty details of what we all can’t wait to see: her maternity style.

Last night in Los Angeles for La Mer’s 50th anniversary celebration, the model and wife to John Legend stepped out looking exceptionally flawless with a slicked back 'do and a sexy off-white dress with a split-seam slit. Who was she wearing? “I don’t know! I never know,” the expectant mother charmingly told InStyle.

Teigen went on to explain how her fashion choices might change as she adjusts to her impending baby bump. “I think that’s going to be really difficult because, for me, I’m so mood based when it comes to dressing, even not pregnant. So I’m scared I’m going to wake up and—it’s just doing to depend on the day,” she told InStyle. “Some days I’m going to feel like crap. Some days I’m going to feel hot. And that’s fine, though. The hard part is being on camera every single day. So hopefully, I’ll do well because I think a lot of people are watching now and it’s scary.”

A fan of autumn, Teigen also expressed her appreciation for the staples she’s accustomed to wearing during the season. “I always loved a big cape to begin with. I love dusters. Fall’s my favorite season, personally, so to be able to have a leather motorcycle jacket, but then a silky duster underneath, something that just kind of flows backward. Something kind of floral and makes every outfit cool,” she added. “I love David Lerner leggings. I live in them. I love tanks by The Row or Enza Costa’s dresses right now I am loving because they’re just so easy. And you can throw a really great jacket over it and look so put together, out of nowhere.”

And luckily, the model has been a longtime fan of pairing looser pieces with skin-tight elements, so she expects a fairly smooth transition when her belly begins to grow. “It’s funny because I always was like a leg person anyway, so I would always show that off. And I’d wear like a long, blousy top," she said. "And that was my style to begin with. I was never like a tight on tight girl. But yeah, it got a little hard to hide.”

Don’t think Teigen is alone in finding out the key to her childbearing style, though. She’s turning to a bonafide fashion pro for help. “Now, I don’t know what the hell I’m going to do. Kim [Kardashian] told me to go stretchy for everything, so I’m going stretchy.” We can’t wait to see her nail them.
