golden-globes-2017

It’s Golden Globes weekend which means tons of opportunities for Hollywood’s A-Listers and elites to hobnob with one another at various events, pre- and after-parties.

We spotted at least four of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums working the “red carpet” at the The Art of Elysium presents Stevie Wonder‘s HEAVEN – Celebrating the 10th Anniversary at Red Studios yesterday, on Saturday, January 7, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.


Kristen Bell opted for a gorgeous copper-colored sleeveless sequined gown by Maria Lucia Hohan and gold Charlotte Olympia heels and clutch.

Chrissy Tegien was radiant in a white Tiered Ruffle Long Sleeve Lace Dress by Jonathan Simkhai. Ashlee Simpson Ross too wore a black lace dress by the same designer, which she accented with smokey eye and a black choker for a Gothic look.

Jaime King went with a lace Altuzarra slip dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, a Sophia Webster clutch, Vhernier earrings, and a Tacori ring.

They all looked fab and all the dresses were off the rack! Get them here:

 

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!

Oscar Contender Natalie Portman Bumps It Up at NYC ‘Jackie’ Screening

Second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman is buzzed to be a contender for another Best Actress Oscar Award based on her riveting performance in the upcoming drama Jackie, about John F. Kennedy’s First Lady.

Portman, who won an Academy Award for her haunting portrayal of a tortured professional ballerina in The Black Swan, attended the 54th New York Film Festival screening of the movie Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center on October 13, 2016 in New York City.

She was glowing in a flowy navy tent dress accented with black pumps and a black box clutch that she posed in before the screening and a Q&A after the film.

The director for the film Pablo Larraín said he couldn’t see any other actress playing the role.

“It was a combination of elegance, sophistication, intelligence, and fragility. Beauty and sadness can be something very powerful in our culture,” Chilean filmmaker Larraín  has said about the star who brought to life the post traumatic stress that Jackie Kennedy experienced during the four days following John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

According to a Vanity Fair feature, since the film’s debut, most critics have agreed with the man who manifested the collaboration, calling Portman’s performance riveting, astonishing, stunning, and deserving of awards. Since this first wave of rave reviews, the film has also garnered a prime, Oscar-qualifying release date of December 9, Vanity Fair notes, adding:

Portman’s preparation included working with a voice coach to perfect Kennedy’s mid-Atlantic, by way of Miss Porter’s finishing school, dialect. She also exhaustively researched—diving into anything and everything written about, recorded of, and filmed about Kennedy—discovering Kennedy’s great love of history and understanding that it was up to her, even when suffering through unspeakable personal tragedy, to cement her husband’s legacy. By the time Portman got to set, she was so immersed in the character that Larraín says a third of the movie was made with single takes—and he never needed more than five.

 

“I always felt like Natalie was giving so much . . . I could see how exhausting the emotional scenes were for her,” Larrain told the mag. “Once you feel you have it, you don’t have to keep digging. I’ve made movies where I’ve taken hundreds of shots if I need to—but here, she was giving so much.”

Bravo, Natalie! We’re rooting for her! Can’t wait to see the film!

cma

I almost forgot to bring you guys the run down of the gorgeous celeb mamas we’ve covered in the past who attended the CMAs (Country Music Awards) at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 2) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum band mates made the rounds  in front of the flashing lights with Scott sporting a gorgeous white Pamella Roland gown. She looked amaze-balls…I mean better than I have ever seen her! Gorg!


Jennifer Garner went with black as well in a floor length slim fitting Jenny Packham gown with an adorned halter top. She looked youthful and refreshing! Beautiful!

Some of yall who don’t follow this genre of music might not have known that Britney Spears‘ baby sister Jamie Lynn Spears  is an accomplished and successful country music singer and award-winning songwriter of hits for other artists.

Jessie James Decker showed out in a sequined halter gown with sexy side cut outs from Jay Godfrey NY.  I loved her loose ringlets that framed her face and her nude matte make up was perfect! C’est Bonne!

I loved the gorgeous J. Mendel one sleeve cap sleeve dress that Jennifer Nettles wore with the sheer under blue applique and that tangerine popped against her olive tone skin.  Nettles rarely does wrong on the red carpet. She has a great figure.

Finally, Carrie Underwood hosted and walked away with the Female Vocalist of the Year award but before walked the red carpet in a beaded dusty pink Michael Cinco halter gown with Swarovski crystals, pearls and scattered organza flowers. She accessorized the dress with triangle-shaped Butani diamond earrings and diamond rings by Hearts on Fire and Harry Kotlar. (I borrowed US Weekly‘s description. tee hee)

During the show, she changed outfits 10 times, paying homage to past First Ladies of Country including: Reba McEntire‘s plunging red dress from 1993 to Dolly Parton‘s famous silver gown from the 1970s; and Shania Twain and others.

Wonderful!
