She is expecting her first baby in May but that didn't stop Megan Gale from stealing the spotlight on the red carpet at the opening of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival on Monday.

Gale glowed in a figure-hugging black and white print dress, which accentuated her bump.

The Perth-raised mum-to-be was there to sit front row for the David Jones runway show. She is a long-time ambassador for the department store.

She might be one of Australia's foremost fashion clotheshorses but the 38-year-old, who is expecting her first child with her 25-year-old AFL player partner Shaun Hampson, has said she isn't interested in dressing her baby in designer clothes.

"Early on, I don't think the child even understands where its nose is, so I'm not going to do too much. I won't be over-styling the baby," she told reporters on the red carpet.

"Then, they get to an age where the child will want to choose their own clothes.

"I'll be very supportive in that area and let them create their own style as well."
