Kim Kardashian sports yet another daring maternity ensemble

Gone are the days of flowy maternity dresses. Kim Kardashian is showing us all the right way to do maternity wear, and the answer is in the crop top.

It seems like Kim K’s second pregnancy is just one fashion statement after another, so we can’t wait to see how she surprises us next.
