Jessica Simpson Baby: Style Evolution, Pregnancy Edition (PHOTOS)

After what seems like the longest pregnancy humanly possible, Jessica Simpson welcomed baby Maxwell Drew into the world today. The singer's road to happily-ever-after has been well-documented, starting with her reality TV series "Newlyweds" about life with ex-husband Nick Lachey. After the couple filed for divorce in 2005, the Texas-native was linked to everyone from Johnny Knoxville to John Mayer until she announced her engagement in 2010 to NFL player Eric Johnson.

The pop star's fashion sense has also come a long way in the public eye. When she came on the scene in 1999, the preacher's daughter favored silhouettes that accentuated her God-given assets, preferring short hemlines and plunging necklines. Thankfully, the "Fashion Star" host has since pared down her look, choosing simpler ensembles. But once pregnant, Simpson didn't opt for typical maternity wear, showing off her baby bump in eye-catching animal print pieces and mini dresses. The mother-to-be also stubbornly stuck to her teetering stilettos for as long as she could.

As for her new daughter, the singer turned designer just hopes that she isn't "athletic" like her father. “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Simpson told Elle.

To congratulate the new mom, we're taking a look back at the blonde bombshell's style. Vote on all of her looks in the slideshow.

In related news, from being a brunette to blunt bangs, Simpson's hair transformation is pretty extensive.
