The show must go on, even when you're pregnant.
Lily Aldridge proved that when she strutted her stuff down the Brandon Maxwell runway at New York Fashion Week on Saturday, with her growing baby bump on full display.
The five-months pregnant model proudly showed off her belly in a body-hugging red gown.
"So proud to walk the @brandonmaxwell runway 5 months pregnant! I’ve walked few runways in my life and this is a moment that I’ll look back on forever with great emotion," Aldridge wrote in an Instagram post.
"It was so much fun being backstage will all the girls, everyone was so uplifting and rubbing my belly celebrating this beautiful journey with me. Nothing but Empowerment at Brandon Maxwell."
Top models Joan Smalls, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Taylor Hill, Cindy Bruna and Grace Elizabeth also walked the runway alongside Aldridge at Manhattan's Classic Car Club.
The mom-to-be wasn't the only mother being celebrated during the show. Maxwell walked down the runway with his mom in a touching moment at the end of the show, giving her a big kiss on the cheek.
Maxwell wrote in the show notes that his collection is "dedicated to Texas and my family for making me who I am. To my friends for always supporting me exactly where I am. To the women on my team for your fierce love, loyalty and dedication to taking me where I want to go. To our customers for making this dream my reality."
The show felt like Barbie meets Texas, with pops of hot pink and red on the runway and fresh flower-filled pickup trucks with "Don't Mess With Texas" bumper stickers decorating the venue.
