Milla Jovovich is clearly a pro when it comes to maternity style. The actress, who is currently expecting baby No. 2 with husband Paul W.S. Anderson, knows just how to avoid looking like, as she calls it, "a big octopus lady." Her secret? "Something sleek. Make the less of me that I can. Take up less room."

The soon-to-be mom of two's gown at Wednesday night's amFAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles, was indeed sleek. Jovovich stunned in a figure-hugging Donna Karan gown with long sleeves and shoulder cutouts, striking the perfect balance between demure and sexy. The actress tells InStyle that she chose the dress not only because it shows off her figure, but also because of its ease. When it comes to outfitting her growing bump, Jovovich is all about finding pieces that are easy to put on. "Obviously in my condition, you just want the easiest, the better. Not too much bust, just simple," she says.
