Most expectant mothers seem to falter when it comes to maternity fashion as they try and cover up their burgeoning bumps in a number of unflattering outfits.

But Kristin Cavallari has adopted a confident style which hasn't caused her to forego her stylish get-ups.

And she looked immaculate yet again when she stepped out last night in a short dress which showed off her legs.

It seems to have become her staple style as she had already been seen in a similar dress earlier in the day before she got ready to dine at West Hollywood's Bagatelle restaurant.

Cavallari opted for a pleated frock which showed off her bump nicely, while she finished her look off with some flat pumps and her hair down.

She was happy to smile for photos as she chatted on her phone.

And just a few hours earlier she had been seen in a flattering shirt dress, although she has had to bite back at one particular Twitter user who has ridiculed her about her size.

The best way to seek revenge on bullies is to shrug them off and not rise to the occasion.

And that's exactly what Kristin did after she was accused of being fat by the online fan.

The Hills star is pregnant with her first child to Chicago Bears quarterback fianc Jay Cutler, hence her changing body shape.

Yesterday, an anonymous Twitter user, with just 69 followers, tweeted Kristin directly to tell her she looks 'fat'.

Perhaps referring to a dress she wore to her baby shower over the weekend, the social networker wrote: '@KristinCav makes you look fat'.

She then responded, sarcastically saying: 'thanks I'm pregnant'.

The unknown tweeter then added: 'Oh s**t congrats', before rather crudely quizzing her over whether she was opting for a traditional birth or C-section. Wisely she declined to answer.

In defiance, she stepped out again today with the outline of her stomach seen during a lunch stop-off at M Cafe in Beverly Hills, as the baby bump tried to peep through the loose-fitting shirt dress.

As the star of two MTV reality shows, Kristin has been known for her love of the limelight.

And the 25-year-old mother-to-be had the right idea yesterday as she donned a glamorous gown to her shower in Hollywood, stealing the spotlight back from her burgeoning belly.

The blonde stepped out to the event held inside a luxurious house in Los Angeles, wearing a gorgeous black gown with an asymmetric hemline.

Her gold beaded neck area coordinated with her oversize clutch bag and jewellery but she toned down her chic look but tying her hair back into a loose ponytail.

Aside from red nails and a pink pout the reality TV star kept her beauty routine basic with a fresh-faced look.

While many pregnant stars battle to walk with their large tummy in towering heels, she embraced California style in her more practical flat sandal footwear.

Before heading out she tweeted a snap of her outfit and cradled her belly asking fans: 'Off to my baby shower. U guys like my dress'

Kristin was beaming as she entered the location where her famous friends Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt and Stephanie Pratt were also in attendance.

Her co-stars were significantly dressed more casually than the soon-to-be parent who looked like she and her son were about to be seriously spoiled.

Guests could be seen laden with bags, balloons and baskets as they unloaded their car trunks with plenty of gifts.

But the treats were handed out the other way around to approximately 30 friends too at the celebration where Petals L.A. provided the flowers.

Apparently attendees were treated to cupcakes and a three-tier sponge cake by Pink Salt Event Cuisine, in addition to being served cocktails.

A source told Us Weekly: ‘It was like a fun party. Kristin was glowing and gorgeous. She looked so happy! Guys were there, too. It was co-ed.’
