She looks great but the dress really makes her look so big. If it was longer and taken in in the back, I think it would fit better. Love the sleeves and neckline.

That thing on her head is horrific, but Zara does love those pieces.

The coat is quite nice, but again the cut is a tad short.

The yellow dress is such a great color on her and for the season. I find the dress a bit too short but she still looks good in it. I would've liked black heels rather than nude with this dress. The hat/headpiece is ridicules IMO but she seems to wear it well.

She looks like a buttercup! Great color, hem a tad too short and I agree that black shoes would have looked better. Horrible topper, though.

I have to say I am not a fan of Zara's style as i do think alot of her dresses are far too short and she cannot carry them off and have to say this is the case here IMO I love the colour but a bit more last check in the mirror thing would not go astay IMO

Zara is showing quite early on in her pregnancy...maybe it's twins! (I JEST) I do not like the dress or hat at all, but Zara pulls it off in a weird way...

I like the dress but not the hat on her. Black and white is such a classic combination and this is a retro event.

Yes, that dress is very roomy and the white across the top makes her really look bigger than she is.
She looks good, but the dress does nothing for her.

It's possible that she's one of those women who have times when they can't stand anything pressing on their growing "bump". I know I was in maternity clothes pretty early on (about eight weeks with my second) because any pressure on my tummy was very uncomfortable and made my morning sickness worse. The discomfort actually went away in in my fourth month, but by the end of five I was back in full-blown maternity clothes until I had my daughter. Everyone is different...

I agree but the style of the dress is too be quite loose and boxy.

Her bust size has definitely increased and this fabulous yellow dress is perfect. It is a smidgen shorter than I would personally have liked but I think she manages to pull it off because it is not close fitting.

It is great to see her looking bouncingly happy in a typical Zara look, great colour and a classically whimsical hat. This is quintessential Zara and I hope to see many more ensembles fit for such occasions.

I like both the yellow and the black & white dresses.

The 20's inspired b&w outfit suits her.

She sharply reduced the size of the heels. In the latest pic her shoes appear to be almost flat.

Maybe twins or maybe she is due sooner than next year or maybe just a big baby.

It was a costume event. I don't think this is Zara trending.

I think the two shades of blue are jarring! And her hair looks messy.
But she looks very happy.
