Expecting her first child in August with her football player fiance Jay Cutler, a highly groomed Kristin Cavallari stepped out today to meet a friend in Studio City looking super chic in a red dress cinched at the waist.

The outfit showed off her baby bump to perfection.

Toting a black Chanel handbag that matched the thin patent-leather black belt, the 25-year-old brand ambassador for Chinese Laundry accessorized the look with black, strappy flats.

The ensemble was all about the colour of the dress, so the reality star kept jewelry to a minimum and wore only a couple of bangles on her right wrist.

Naturally, The Hills' star big diamond engagement and wedding rings sparkled brightly on her hand.

Always well groomed, the star wore her long blonde hair blown straight, with an added layer of finishing gloss.

Although she's eating for two, Cavallari has kept pregnancy weight gain to a minimum and seems to be gaining only in her tummy where it counts.

Typically seen in high heels, the fashionable Cavallari said she has been forced to retire most of her stilettos until the baby is born.

'I’m definitely wearing more ballet flats,' she told People magazine. 'Living in California makes you able to wear open-toe shoes year-round, which I love.
She said being pregnant gives her an excuse to chuck painful foot wear.

'I just don't wear heels the next day if my feet hurt,' she said.

Cavallari
was in her junior year of high school when she was cast as a member of
the popular MTV reality show, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. She
continued to star in its spinoff, The Hills.
