"If it's for a red carpet event ... we try to show her waistline, show she's still sexy. I know a lot of people think after you have a baby you just lose your figure, but that's just not the case."

Before she bared her bump on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans, Beyoncé was determined to keep her baby belly under wraps. And with the help of her team of stylists (Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith), the then mom-to-be pulled it off.
“At first it was very tricky because we were trying to keep it a secret, but we just found beautiful blouses and baggy slacks, loafers, some mid-heels, to not really show what was going on but keep her trendy and stylish,” Smith told Style Bistro during New York’s Fashion Week.
But since the songstress welcomed daughter Blue Ivy last January, the celebrity stylist is now leaning toward pieces from her fave brands Balmain, Barbara Bui and Christian Louboutin to flatter the new mom’s curvy figure.
“We are focusing on more figured looks for her to show off her silhouette after she had the baby,” Smith explains.
