Kelly Clarkson's dress

Who says that maternity equals frumpy? Kelly Clarkson struck a chord with the fashion gods in her recent appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." She wore a red Parisian lace top encrusted with Swarovski crystals and a full circular skirt. It was just the proper amount of holiday sparkle to go with red, one of the season's hottest colors. The dress is by Watters, the Dallas-based dressmaker known for its bridal and special-occasion dresses. Although Clarkson's dress is a custom piece, I discovered that Watters will release a similar dress, Encore Bobbi, in ivory lace, available in January. Find the Encore Bobbi for $350 at The Encore collection is also carried locally at Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection, 1848 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.Photo courtesy of the Ellen Show, Baltimore Sun
