Our 2017 People’s Choice Awards Run down

people's choice awards red carpet 2017

Blake Lively, Kristen Bell, Ali Arter and Jennifer Lopez attended the 2017 People’s Choice Awards.

I love the People’s Choice Awards, held this year at Microsoft Theater on January 18, 2017 in Los Angeles, California, for several reasons: 1) the nominees include a broad array of actors, actresses and TV shows, movies and bits that the average person enjoys, not just critics, film producers and elites; 2) they spread the love around and there isn’t one show or person that dominates all the awards; and 3) they have fun category like best collaboration. I mean the nominees this year for that category included:

Conan O’Brien’s Ride Along with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart
Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears’ Mall Mischief
James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with Adele
Lip Sync Battle with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Saturday Night Live with Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon

How fun, eh?!?

We love to keep track of the celeb moms that we covered on the blog while they were expecting their respective bambinos when we spot them on the red carpet at award shows and other former industry events.

This past Sunday, we spotted a ton of Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums and they all looked great! Some, like currently expecting Natalie Portman (in Prada), Kerry Washington (in Dolce & Gabbana and clutch, Sophia Webster shoes, and Niwaka jewelry); and Viola Davis  (above in sunny yellow Michael Kors Collection dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Harry Winston jewels, and Judith Leiber clutch.) were nominated, and Davis won for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in the movie “Fences”.


Others like, Reese Witherspoon (in Atelier Versace with Tiffany & Co. jewelry, Christian Louboutin shoes, and a Tyler Ellis clutch.) presented on stage.

Model Irina Shayk Announced Pregnancy at Victoria Secret Catwalk

irina-shayk

Russian model Irina Shayk is reportedly in her second trimester of pregnancy with her and actor beau Bradley Cooper‘s first child together.

The gorgeous and leggy brunette walked the Victoria Secret Fashion Show on November 30, 2016 in Paris, France in a red fringe cover revealing her new pregnancy boobs. She later changed into another outfit that involved a trench coat, thigh high patent leather boots and plenty more cleavage.

The second outfit totally showed off her round tummy and was an unofficial announcement. Brazilian models Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge were both pregnant in 2011 when they both walked the show.

Models bounce back pretty quickly as was shown by Heidi Klum who walked that show in 2009 about 5 -weeks after giving birth, and Lima, 8 weeks after she gave birth.


After the event, which took place at the Grand Palais in Paris, she attended after parties in a striped negligee like dress that was a little more concealing  but still revealed a bulbous tummy.

Congrats!

Also, in the house was singer, songwriter and philanthropist Pharrell Williams and his expecting wife Helen Lasichanh. We’ve dubbed them one of the most stylish red carpet couples and they didn’t disappoint! Loved the His and Hers Patent leather Chanel flats. Williams loves to reveal his ankles in cropped pants and of course, he rocked a signature hat.
