Top celebrity mom style: How to look fashionable

Becoming a mother does not mean that a woman must retire her sex appeal. Take a cue from top celebrity moms regarding modern fashion and style. Although far removed from the average mom's existence, some of our favorite celebrities present real life examples of how to dress with comfort and fashion in mind. These women show us how to look gorgeous on the red carpet as well as in the grocery store.

Kourtney Kardashian

A socialite, model, and reality TV star, Kourtney Kardashian is probably best known for being Kim's older sister and business partner. But the glamorous beauty is also a mother of two young children. Why do we love her personal style? Kourtney really knows how to rock any garment while looking incredible. This young mom can wear leggings with a casual sweater, or you may spot her wearing a fitted cocktail dress. Yet, she manages to look both comfortable and confident in all types of apparel. "The average celebrity female is accustomed to a variety of situations, so exuding confidence is a natural part of her presence. I think every mom in America can learn a great deal from this," says Lisa Montgomery, a personal stylist in Charlotte, North Carolina. We tend to agree.

Angelina Jolie

Characteristically stunning, Angelina Jolie's style as a working Hollywood mom reflects her strength and inner beauty. Married to Brad Pitt, the Oscar-winning actress has 6 children, and still manages to look glam at all times. Of course, if we were all blessed with Jolie's chiseled cheekbones and lovely lips, perhaps we could also make absolutely anything look fabulous. Although years ago, she looked like a goth rocker adorned in cotton tees and black leather, nowadays her style is a lot more family-friendly. What's not to love? In addition to her careers as an actor and director, the multi-tasking mommy even makes time to promote various humanitarian causes throughout the world.

Kelly Ripa

Ripa's killer style outshines the majority of women. HuffingtonPost.com states, "Every weekday morning, Kelly Ripa greets viewers on her show, 'Live! With Kelly & Michael,' looking impossibly polished and pulled-together. (An effort that she concedes only takes an hour.) Though it's been a long road to get there: Not unlike a lot of stars (and us civilians), Ripa fell victim to many unfortunate trends in the '90s. As a long-term cast member on the long-running soap, 'All My Children,' the New Jersey native attended many a Soap Opera Digest Awards shows wearing gigantic hair and sequins." Regardless of Ripa's fashion mistakes in the past, we absolutely adore her chic working mom fashion.
