At Monday night's Learn.Build.Create Inaugural Celebration held in Washington, D.C., the Ontario-raised actress and model stunned her fellow guests not only with her low-cut beaded gown, but with her growing baby belly underneath. Expecting her first child with husband Roberto Zincone in April, Akerman was glowing in her black dress and high updo.

In fact, throughout her pregnancy, Akerman has embraced her best accessory (her bump) and used it to her advantage. Here are some more of our favourite looks she's sported within the last few months.
Most of us can't pull off floral tights in the best of times, so we're endlessly jealous of Akerman's pairing of these bold printed leggings with a flowing grey top. She looks comfy, covered, and incredibly content.
Akerman took another dark turn while attending an InStyle Golden Globes party in November 2012. Letting her wavy hair down, she went for more of a rocker look with tight black leggings, a black deep-V short-sleeve jacket, black pumps, and a bold printed clutch.
Akerman and Zincone look like the picture perfect rocker couple while shopping in Beverley Hills in November 2012. Her loose gray sweater, snakeskin tights, leather boots, and dark sunglasses are the casual chic answer to his jean jacket and graphic t shirt.
Earlier that same month, Akerman upped the class factor with a pristine black and white cocktail dress with a graphic grid at an art event in Los Angeles. Her messy bun and single white glove finished the look.
Akerman was just starting to show when she wowed her husband and other attendees at the 2012 Environmental Media Awards in late September. The short red number with dramatic cut-outs, mesh black high heels, big leather clutch and a straight bob was a great last hurrah before the bump really set in.
With a maternity wardrobe like this, we can't wait to see the outfits Akerman has picked out for this little bundle of joy!
