Keira Knightley's waist has "disappeared".

The 'Imitation Game' actress - who is expecting her first child with husband James Righton - insists dressing her changing shape for formal events isn't too difficult, but she isnt opting for anything tight-fitting.

Asked on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild awards last night (25.01.15) if it is harder to dress her bump, Keira - who wore a flowing purple lace Erdem gown to the event - said: "It just means you're not going to wear anything tight. Actually, people do wear tight things when they're pregnant, don't they? I don't want to go for that. So it's just on quite loose, which is quite nice."

Admiring E! presenter Maria Menounos' fitted, strapless gold dress, she added: "If I had that waist at the moment, I'd do the same thing. But the waist has disappeared so I can't do that."

The 29-year-old beauty - who lost out to 'Boyhood' star Patricia Arquette in the Outstanding Female Actor in a Supporting Role category - donned high-heeled shoes for the occasion but admitted she was unsure whether they would last the whole evening.

She said: "The shoes are quite high -- they may come off later. I can go, 'Well,l I'm pregnant so my shoes have to come off and no one's allowed to say anything.' "
