The California born star shared a behind the scenes snap from the day, showing her raven locks being teased into a just-got-out-of-bed mass of luxurious waves as she gazes in the mirror.
She captioned it: 'BTS of my pregnancy shoot! Deep in glam thought with @clydehairgod and @missjobaker' giving credit to her style team.
In other images, the Devious Maids star wears a figure-hugging black gown with thigh-high split.
The actress, who has been known to imitate Kim Kardashian's style in the past, just happened to reveal all the same day as the pregnant E! reality star posed nude for an Instagram photo on Tuesday.
Naya told the website: 'Being in the public eye when you're pregnant is really, really hard, and people can be so mean on the Internet, it's insane.

'Pregnancy is such a beautiful time to me, and I feel like you should embrace your body in whatever stage it's in. So it's kind of hard being an actress, being a celebrity, and having people scrutinize how you physically look, and just saying the craziest things.'
But Naya tries not to take it too seriously as she explains: 'I just keep in mind that I've never met these people, and they've never had the privilege of meeting me, so they're, like, strangers as far as I'm concerned. So you can't really take what they say to heart.'
The actress has also been writing a blog documenting her pregnancy and the little challenges it presents.

In an excerpt from Monday she said 'Being in my third trimester means hard work is ahead and every day a new body part aches or seemingly falls apart. But it also comes with its share of really fun and exciting things too.
'First on the list was a major baby prep, otherwise known as nesting. This is when your motherly instincts kick into high gear due to a cocktail of hormones causing you to become the master of almost any DIY project.'
In her second trimester the actress revealed the challenge of keeping up her sex life with her husband of one year Ryan Dorsey.
Unforgettable: Naya got to throw her dream baby shower last week featuring her favourite children's book as a theme. She is pictured with her husband Ryan Dorsey, 32
She revealed: 'Sex with my husband became a bit odd for me due to the fact that I was now limited to about two positions in order to not squash - as my husband puts it - 'its roof' or have the baby (my belly) staring him in the face.
'I feel like men are constantly imagining their baby winking at them when they make love to their pregnant wives thus making sexy times more few and far between.'
Naya and Ryan, 32, celebrated their baby shower last week which featured a children's storybook theme.
The couple were pictured gazing down at a giant cake in the shape of the book Love You Forever.
Naya and the Justified actor tied the knot in Cabo San Lucas in July last year.
