Eighteen years ago I entered the maternity ward of the hospital, about to give birth to my son Eric, wearing a bright yellow mini dress. With my huge stomach, I can only imagine how much I looked like an enormous bumble bee. I sure could have used Rebecca Minkoff to style me, then! Lucky Magazine interviews designer Rebecca Minkoff, who has teamed up with A Pea In The Pod, following the birth of her second child. Minkoff has designed luxury, sophisticated-chic maternity pieces, just in time for the holidays. Says Minkoff: “I think pregnancy is sexy – I say embrace it! Wear things that make you feel powerful, sexy and great and show off that bump.”
Maternity style, the Rebecca Minkoff way??I’m buying it!

It was 40 minutes of pure magic. That’s because Diane von Furstenberg is wise and witty and wonderful. Here are some DVF thoughts, life advice and uplifting inspirations:
