Leather pants as maternity wear?

Though it's one item of clothing that you won't typically find in a woman's pregnancy wardrobe, that didn't stop expectant Chelsea Clinton from stepping out in a pair of black faux leather pants on Thursday at the 2014 Wildlife Conservation Society Gala in New York City.

Clinton, 34, who is expecting her first baby with husband Marc Mezvinsky, showed off her new curves in the tight pants, which she teamed with a black blazer and blouse, a long necklace, and a pair of Christian Louboutin heels.

As a rule, leather pants aren't an easy look to pull off, but Clinton managed to look professional and a little bit rock 'n' roll.

The former first daughter, who rarely scores well in the style department, is definitely taking some risks with her maternity ensembles.

Perhaps she's inspired by some of the über-fashionable mamas in Hollywood like Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry, and Kristin Cavallari, who've all outfitted their bumps with leather looks and head-to-toe black.

While this all-black ensemble isn't our favorite on Clinton (we think she could have opted for a longer blouse!), we're hoping she continues to take style notes from chic moms like Kerry Washington, who took pregnancy style to an entirely new level by selecting ladylike silhouettes and experimenting with busy patterns.

Clinton certainly can afford it. According to a report that surfaced today on Politico, she once earned an annual salary of $600K a year serving as a special correspondent for NBC News, which she joined in November 2011.

What do you think of Chelsea's pregnancy style so far?
