When it comes to looking good while pregnant, Jaime King nails it. Ever since the Hart of Dixie star announced that she and husband director Kyle Newman they were expecting in May, she has incorporated her love of colors and prints into her maternity looks. “I’m changing my point of view of what dressing while pregnant means,” the actress told InStyle.com at the launch of Vidal Sassoon’s “Show Your Genius” contest in New York. “A lot of women immediately go to big, baggy things and loose dresses. I think people are afraid—at least I was in the beginning—to maintain my sense of style while being pregnant.” So King embraced her changing body and updated her look. “For me, it’s about wearing things that are structured, but at the same time they are loose fitting, so you have both of those elements going on. I like when it is comfortable but there is some element of edge to it.” Click to see how she’s balancing comfort and glam with a growing belly.
Ever since Jaime King announced her pregnancy via Twitter back in May, the actress has become conscious of removing harmful chemicals from her beauty routine. “I’ve been trying to avoid wearing any makeup unless I absolutely have to,” the Hart of Dixie star told InStyle.com at the the Vidal Sassoon “Show Your Genius” contest in New York City. But when she does apply makeup, she reaches for vegan cosmetic line, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, the company that created the peachy pink long-wearing lip gloss she wore here. “I’m not trying to go hippy-dippy—we still need some fashion,” she added. Score her shade, named Interlace, for $18 at occmakeup.com.

We can hardly believe it—Vidal Sassoon‘s infamous bob turns 50 this year! (Now doesn’t that make you feel old?) The style, once donned by Mia Farrow and Nancy Kwan (shown left), is still relevant in any of its variations—asymmetrical, A-Line, fringe, etc.—something we knew but was proved even further when we saw it faux-style on Hart of Dixie actress Jaime King when she helped launch the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series “Show Your Genius” contest in New York this week. “It is so chic,” King told us of the look. “It’s one of the most iconic things in the history of hair!” Celebrity stylist Ben Skervin helped create the style for King, which he calls “a great way to experiment” with the style. “When Vidal originally designed [the bob], it was to free women, to make their life simple, and women today still want that freedom,” Skervin said. “It’s a style that suits everybody. It works any shape and any hair type. The basis of the Sassoon idea is this amazing haircut that you can just wash, wear, and go.” And it’s still going—the hair brand is offering a prize of $1,000 if you submit your best hairstyle on its Facebook page for the “Show Your Genius” contest. (Click here to check it out and submit your look.) So, here’s a big happy birthday, bob—to another 50 years!
