LEGALLY BLONDE star Reese Witherspoon has taken advice on how to remain sexy throughout her pregnancy - from Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson.

Witherspoon, who is pregnant with her second child with husband RYAN PHILLIPPE, is in London filming the drama Vanity Fair.

And rather than don conventional - and conservative - underwear suited to expectant mothers, the Louisiana-born beauty opted for 30 skimpy pieces from Macpherson's INTIMATES MATERNALLE line at the upscale maternity store SERAPHINE.

An eyewitness says, "She was just shopping alone. The knickers were really tiny, although obviously made for a pregnant woman.

"Let's just say Ryan won't be complaining that she has let herself go during pregnancy!"
