While it’s normally considered a faux pas to take aim at a pregnant woman for her dress-sense, E!’s Fashion Police didn’t appear too concerned about how people would react when they blasted Spanish-born actress Elsa Pataky’s Oscars red carpet look and liberally fired off insults as they examined her dress choice. Wearing a sheer aqua blue gown, Elsa’s bump was prominently on display and her critics think she should have selected a better fitting dress. George Kotsiopoulos even likened her bump to a “beer belly”. He said:

”The last thing I wanna do is rip on a pregnant woman. But it’s a horrible dress on her. It doesn’t look like a baby bump, it looks like a beer belly.”

Kelly Osbourne agreed with George, adding that she thought the dress was not appropriate for Elsa’s figure and suggested dress cuts that would have been more flattering:

 ”It’s just not the appropriate dress to wear if you are pregnant, you have to go with an empire style, or just dress like Olivia Wilde.”

Giuliana Rancic simply said she was not fan of the dress at all:

 ”I have to say pregnant or not, I just don’t like this dress.”

Always having the last say, Joan Rivers flatly stated:

 ”I know why she’s huge. I saw her sonogram.”

Many quickly rushed to Elsa’s defense, leaving comments on the clip on Youtube. Hitting back at the unkind comments, users stated that their words were hurtful to the clearly heavily pregnant actress. What do you think – is it right to criticize a pregnant woman for her fashion choices? And what do you think of the dress?
