It’s safe to say that Little Mix have had a life-changing year. They released their new album Confetti last November (which led to their first time promoting a record as a trio, following the departure of Jesy Nelson in December), and have been busy publicizing its release ever since. In even bigger news, however, two of the members—Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards—recently announced that they’re expecting with their respective partners. Little Mix might be renowned for their meticulously synchronized choreography, but to find their pregnancy cycles in sync too? Now that’s true commitment.
Last Tuesday, Pinnock announced she was pregnant via an Instagram post with her boyfriend, footballer Andre Gray. Then, just yesterday, Edwards shared the news that she was also pregnant with her footballer boyfriend, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. They appeared with fellow bandmate Jade Thirwall on the red carpet for their first public outing since the announcements at the Brit Awards today.
For their red carpet debut as a trio, the group opted for a series of matching looks that beautifully accentuated the two baby bumps. For Pinnock, this meant a marble white, draped dress by Maison Margiela, while Edwards wore a bustier, gloves, and tiered skirt by David Koma. Even though she isn’t currently expecting, Thirlwall glowed in a figure-hugging Vivienne Westwood number that served as the perfect complement to her bandmates’ goddess-like gowns.
It seems Little Mix will have plenty to toast to tonight, having already been handed the gong for Best British Group, making history in the process as the first-ever female band in the history of the Brits to win it. In their acceptance speech, they dedicated the award to the illustrious lineage of British girl group predecessors, including the Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, and Girls Aloud. But with their ethereal red carpet looks tonight, it’s evident that Little Mix continue to be in a league all of their own.
