Olivia Wilde won't wear "empire waist" dresses whilst pregnant.

The 32-year-old actress - who is expecting her second child with her partner Jason Sudeikis, with whom she has two-year-old son Otis with - has admitted she will avoid wearing gowns which conceal her burgeoning baby bump because she doesn't find it "flattering", and prefers to flaunt her curves instead.

Speaking to PEOPLE about her maternity wear, the brunette beauty - who adorned a forest green skin-tight dress with cut away waist sections designed by Rosie Assoulin at this year's CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Award ceremony held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on Monday (06.06.16) - she said: "For pregnancy, I don't wear empire waists - I don't think it's necessary.

"I don't think people should hide their bump. I don't think it's flattering. The tighter the better. It's all about flaunting your curves. And just in general about fashion, it should feel effortless. If it feels effortless, it looks effortless. If you put effort into it, everyone knows it.

"It is a gorgeous time. And there is no reason to hide it."

And the 'Vinyl' star has revealed she aspires to be a female who turns heads at red carpet events.

She said: "If you saw someone walking into a party wearing one of these looks, you'd say, 'Who is that? I want to be that woman."

However, Olivia reached her goal when she was labelled the best dressed at the Golden Globe Awards in 2014, which saw her don an emerald sequin Gucci dress when she was six months pregnant with her first child.

Speaking previously about her most memorable wardrobe choices, she said: "I was six months pregnant last time I presented, and I was thrilled to be there. I was so happy. And it's just a nice moment to share with my son in a funny way. We went there together. Karla Welch is my stylist, and she's really brilliant. And together, we showed that pregnant women can still be sexy. And there's no need to disguise yourself in lots of layers and Gucci made a beautiful dress."
