Interview: Vanessa Lachey Talks Mommyhood


Feminine. Comfortable. Layered. That’s how TV personality and haute mama Vanessa Lachey describes her maternity style. Her sleek silhouettes stood out from the rest, so we asked her to be part of our Baby on Board event. Here she reveals her favorite bump-chic designers and can’t-live-without staples.
