The dos and don’ts of pregnancy style: Kim Kardashian vs. Kate Middleton [SLIDESHOW]

The media is all abuzz with Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy these days: she fat? Should she really be wearing leather pants while pregnant? What is that cape-like thing she wore the other week? Is she lying about her delivery date? Is she lying about her pregnancy? Why did she wear that dress that made people compare her to an orca whale?

All of these are very valid questions, but bring to light another issue: Isn’t there some one else who’s also pregnant right now? Some one who is substantially more important than Kim Kardashian? Some one people like more than Kim Kardashian?

Oh that’s right, Kate Middleton — the Duchess of Cambridge herself — is also pregnant right now, though you probably forgot because unlike Kardashian, she isn’t galavanting around town in god-awful outfts, begging for media attention.

Kim might want to take notes from fellow mommy-to-be who has remained subtle and under the radar throughout her pregnancy.

Let’s take a look.

  • Why would Kim want to draw even more attention to her baby bump by wearing a tassled top such as this one? Also, why would you wear leather leggings while pregnant? Tragically, the answer to these questions may never be learned. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)

  • If our calculation is correct, Kim was preggers during Halloween season and still wore this. No one wants to see a photo of their mom in this kind of an outfit.
