She rocked a sleeveless Ronny Kobo dress and jewels by Erickson Beamon and super cute sunflower pumps.


More recently, this morning again, she stunned on the Wendy Williams show outfitted in a dress by Hemant & Nandita, jewels by Erickson Beamon and Bliss Lau and shoes by Sergio Rossi while promoting season 4 of her hit Starz channel show.

And earlier this month, she was glam and fab at the New York special screening event of  the new STARZ  show The White Princess hosted by STARZ & Refinery29 at Metrograph on April 5, 2017 in New York City.

She and the dad-to-be spent a baby moon in Hawaii a few weeks back. Naughton shared a photo of her spouse toting her on the beach. Sweet!

Gwen Stefani Ditches Her Signature Ruby Red Lip for Hot Pink at 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards

gwen-pink

Sizzling!

We were geeked to see our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, singer and The Voice coach Gwen Stefani ditch her signature ruby red lip for neon pink tonight at the Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards at USC Galen Center on March 11, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.


The star went with an embellished black rocker glam on the arrival carpet and hit the stage later to present an award in a cute “Slime” theme mini dress.

Good thing the mom to three boys stuck with her trademark platinum pony-tail or we wouldn’t be able to distinguish her from the twenty-something starlets out there.

Man, can you believe she is 47!?! Wow! Hot mama!

 

We Can’t Get Enough Of Ciara’s Arrival Carpet Glam

ciara red carpet

Second-time mom-to-be R&B crooner Ciara has been mixing up her red carpet and event arrival style, not sticking to any one color pallete or look.

Most recently, the designer muse looked regal in a royal red velvet fishtail train dress by Jovani while attending the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on February 26, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California.


The day before, the gorgeous model went with a textured off white gown under a champagne chartreuse opera coat  by August Getty Atelier while attending the annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar-viewing party on February 25, 2017 at The City of West Hollywood Park on February 26, 2017 in West Hollywood, California.

She is even staying on trend, donning a black choker to accessorize her black sheer top and on-trend big loose palazzo pants she wore under an Off-White striped duster coat to the Warner Music Group Grammy party at Milk Studios back on February 12, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

ciara-fun

And her casual looks are on point too. Usually makeup less, she rocked all black during a date night with the hubby in West Hollywood and was fresh-faced chilling one day in a chic IG pic she posted on her Instagram account a couple weeks ago, and in a recent out-and-about photo with her son Future Zahir on her back.

Get it Ci-Ci! Shoe em how Maternity Glam-Chic is done. (smile)

How Olivia Culpo’s Marchesa Water Dress helps Charity

f259bcdd-637b-4686-b4ed-d9019723e667

Actress and former beauty queen Olivia Culpo’s Oscar red carpet dress will help provide clean water to children in the developing world.

How?


The former Miss USA and Miss Universe 2012 teamed up with our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Georgina Chapman to design the dress made up of a chalice.

“It’s in partnership with Stella Artois and Water.org,” the star of The Other Woman  told Ryan Secrest on the red carpet. “Stella Artois created chalices and for one chalice sold, five years of clean drinking water is provided for someone in the developing world. So this dress is actually made out of the chalice pieces, and it’s encouraging people to get involved in the water crisis and buy the chalice.”

And it is a stunning masterpiece. It even flows like water.

“We wanted the dress to represent water itself, so it’s sort of cascading,” she explained. “The crystal represents the water as well. We knew we wanted tears.”

She continued, “They did an amazing job…and it’s fun when you can incorporate good things and charity into fashion!”

Nice!

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?!?

Henson, Viola Davis, for example. See…what I mean? They nominate everyone!
