Peta Murgatroyd is a master in the ballroom, and a masterful maternity style maven.

The reigning Dancing with the Stars champion, who is seven months along in her pregnancy, cloaked her baby bump in a strapless black maxi dress by Wolford at PEOPLE’s “Ones to Watch” celebration in Los Angeles presented by Maybelline New York.

Murgatroyd, 30, added a subtle but sexy style factor by accessorizing her simple garment with a sheer lace kimono Misha Collection cardigan along with a black choker and a pair of color coordinated Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos that were accented with metallic hoop detailing.

She and fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy are expecting their first child, a boy, in early January. As for a wedding date, the DWTS pros are eyeing summer 2017 for their big day.
