Weekend Style Roundup: What and Who Celeb Mamas Wore

weekend2

Celebrities don’t really get a chance to dress down and bum it when they have professional photogs aka paparazzi  lurking in every corner capturing their moves.

Some play along like Chrissy Tiegen who balanced daughter Luna Simone on her hip in some super cute Isabel Marant pointed toe ankle booties. I love her warm off the shoulder Nila Lotan sweater and black slim Parker pants. Baby Luna looked super cute too!


Mariah Carey does black snow bunny in her Quilted Moncler Puffer coat. Not in this shot in the collage, she had on a Louis Vuitton scarf and purse.

Jennifer Lopez went low key in a pair of cool Quay sunglasses. She rocked personalized Timberland boots with her nickname, “Jlo” emblazoned on the tongue. She was warm and cozy in a long ribbed Brunello Cucinelli sweater and not seen in this photo, but she was rocking a Hermes bracelet. Very casual chic!

Jessica Alba hoofed it in a a pair of patent leather boots by Church and she toted a fab quilted Valentino handbag with chain strap while hitting the streets recently.

Kelly Rowland showed off her blunt cut hair while out and about wearing a the utmost fur-lined black jacket (we hope it was faux fur).  Heidi Klum hit the slopes in a coat by Acne and a pair of black with white stars track pants by Chinti and Parker.

Current, first-time mom-to-be Irina Shayk was rocking some colorful Nikelab x Riccardo pants while out and about. It was Givenchy everything else: jacket, sunglasses and purse. Oww!

Granted some of these moms have personal stylists to help them look this fashionable but you can see their personal style through their looks as well. Work it, mamas!

Halloween, Heidi Klum Outdoes Herself…Literally 


Our Bellyitch bump watch alum Heidi Klum is still queen of Halloween.

The creator and longtime host of Project Runway is known for outfitting herself in the most over-the-top costumes for her annual Halloween party.


The veteran Supermodel has been a skinless man, a caricature of Jessica Rabbit, a Hindu God and more.



This year she cloned herself and was Heidi Klum x 6 for 2016.

Genius!!

celebrity pumpkin patch 2015

This is the last week and weekend before Halloween to hit up the pumpkin patch and score yourself a rad pumpkin to carve or set up on your porch. Out in Hollywood, Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Culver City, California is a favorite spot for celebrities.

Each year several celeb fams head out to the patch and are either photographed by the papps or share their own photos in social media.


Bellyitch Bumpwatch we spotted this year include alums Heidi Klum, Kendra Wilkinson, Tamera Mowry-HousleyGwen Stefani , Kourtney and Kim Kardashian and Rachel Zoe at the patch with their kids. We also saw first time mom-to-be The Walking Dead star Alanna Masterson, who plays “Tara Chambler” on the hit AMC show posing a patch; and late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel and his daughter Molly.

Fun times!

2015 Prime Time Emmy Awards Red Carpet and Winners

 

emmy awards 2015

Watching the red carpet to the 67th Annual Primtime EmmyAwards at Microsoft Theater tonight, I must say I was really loving all the creative and different silhouettes, daring cutouts and experiments with texture on the styles of clothing.


Early photos I saw revealed a lot of prom and pageant-like dresses, and very full skirts and structured boring looks we’ve seen before on the Miss Universe stage, but then when I began to dig deep into the photo galleries and I was wowed by Amy Poehler‘s midriff revealing black Michael Kors Collection dress with spaghetti halter straps. Grrrrr!

And January Jones‘ emerald Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit with a starfish brooch at the hip was to die for!

Kerry Washington did not disappoint this time in a silver metallic Marc Jacobs with futuristic cap shoulders, Casadei pumps and Harry Winston jewels. Love Love!

Mad Men‘s Jessica Pare brought out the color in her pink Monse halter dress, accented with Fred Leighton jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Many were nominated and several took home awards like Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won again for the 4th straight year in a row as the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Veep.

And Congratulations to  Viola Davis for her historic win as the first African American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in How to Get Away With Murder tonight. Bravo! She rocked this stage in a righteous twist-out fro complemented nicely in a white with black print Carmen Marc Valvo gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Neil Lane jewels.

viola davis wins

Congrats also to Regina King who played a protective Muslim mother in the mini-series drama American Crime and for her role on that version of the series nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series of Movie!

She took her son Ian to the ceremony and acknowledged him in her speech for a win she really didn’t expect, as she explained to ET!

 

 

These were big wins given the fact that historically in the US, there are not that many roles written and cast for black women to play so they can outshine their contemporaries at the time and earn wins.

Very Cool.

primetime emmy 2015 2

King looked nice though the color and frame of the dress was underwhelming for her powerful and strong body. The back was banging tho. Owww!

Maggie Gyllenhaal did the ball gown thing in Oscar de la Renta with Fred Leighton jewels. I don’t have enough words for Heidi Klum‘s  dress and I found the fit of Claire DanesPrada dress a bit off for her tonight.

 

 

primetime emmy 2015 6

Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky brought some glam in Bibhu Mohapatra and Chopard jewels and Sofia Vergara did the usual old Hollywood glam vixen figure-hugging fishtail look. Seen it before. It’s her signature and works for her I guess but she really should change things up.

Fashion shows’ pregnant celebrity hosts

A few years ago, we blogged about how female film stars were losing out on film projects once producers discovered they were pregnant. That’s why it was refreshing to catch a broadcast of Project Runway’s All-Star featuring a very pregnant Alyssa Milano as a host on the latest season of that show. She hosted it last year as well.
The franchise is quite pregnant lady friendly as creator and original host Heidi Klum was also very pregnant during one past season of the general Project Runway fashion designer contest show.
We also noticed that another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Vanessa Simmons started her gig on Project Runway Threads (the version for child-designers) right after giving birth to her daughter Ava Marie
 last February. 
It must be a thing with fashion shows because Kristin Cavallari starred in season one of the E!  show The Fabulist while she was expecting her second child. 
It’s all good news for the future of working pregnant moms in the industry. Well at least on the small screen.

6 celebrity couples who split up before baby was born

Bellyitch Rewind
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream  in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009. 
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his.  The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010. 
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007.  The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born. 
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s  Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good  friends.

Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!

This Week’s Celebrity Mom Selfie Showdown

Eva Marcille (nee Pigford)

Borrowing a concept from our partners at Zimbio, we’re showcasing the latest selfies taken by our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums and shared in social media for their fans and followers and asking who do you think had the best one for the week?

Heidi Klum

January Jones
Alicia Keys
Snooki


Finally, not a selfie but posted  Zoe Saldana recently shared a pic of herself with her sister Cicely Saldana taken at the Hispanic Heritage foundation awards where Zoe was given an award for her advocacy and charity work. Kudos.

Also, engaged in Charity this week, was Kerry Washington, who shared a photo of herself in a shirt with the words “It’s on Us“, a new campaign the Obama administration is promoting that encourages men and women to stop sexual assaults, especially on college campuses where it is a wide-spread occurrence.

2014 Primetime Emmy Awards Red Carpet: Celebrity Moms glam it up

The stars were out last night at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on August 25, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. 
We were on the look out for some of the celebrity moms and moms-to-be that we’ve featured on the blog before and certainly they did not disappoint:
Kerry Washington rocked  an orange Prada dress with intricate crystals embroidered within with matching Prada clutch and fab Fred Leighton jewels.  Washington, who had her first child earlier this year, was nominated for an Outstanding actress award for her role on ABC‘s Scandal.
Giuliana Rancic went old Hollywood glam in this stately crimson Gustavo Cadile dress, worn with Christian Louboutin heels and Forevermark diamonds jewels. 
Gwen Stefani did not walk the red carpet, still was shimmering in the halls in a silver Atelier Versace Fall 2014 top and long skirt with metallic ornaments at the neckline. Very rock and roll and futuristic, yes?
Nashville star and mom-to-be Hayden Panettiere was radiant and glowing in a floor length Lorena Sarbu  gown from her Fall 2014 collection, accented with Fred Leighton earrings and a dainty diamond bracelet, set off with nude make up and a diamond encrusted headband. Gorgeous!
Halle Berry  also skipped the early arrivals red carpet even though she presented the last award for the night. She looked stunning as usual in this high-slit flowing feminine Elie Saab gown, posing  in the press toom. Very nice!
Love Love Brazillian model Camila Alves in my fave North African designer Zuhair Murad gown from his 2014 Resort collection. Beautiful with this white Aldo clutch and a pair of Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ heels to finish off the perfect look. Her Oscar-winning hubby Matthew McConaughey  was a top nominee last night for his role in HBO’s True Detective.

Saucy! Is one word to describe Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara who stunned in a body hugging Roberto Cavalli dress, while dripping in Lorraine Schwartz  jewels. Fab! Her show tied Fraisier with its 5 consecutive comedy show Emmy wins. 

Pleasantly surprised to see Heidi Klum tame her usual over-the-topness this year as she graced the red carpet in Zac Posen resort 2015 dress, accessorized with a Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch with matching Jimmy Choo ‘Xenia’ sandals and and accented with delicate Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Love the deep waves. The Project Runway  creator did well tonight. 
Claire Danes went for the pop of color in Givenchy from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection. She wore Lorraine Schwartz pieces to complete the look. Very pretty and feminine. The star is a multi-Emmy winner for her role on Showtime’s Homeland and was nominated last night as well. 
Hardly recognized this super svelte Julianna Margulies in this sleek Narcisco Rodgriguez gown and leather clutch. We heard FD Gallery set her up with a 13.26 carat old mine cut diamond earrings and a 7 carat rose cut Hemmerle ring. Wowza! Love the up swept do and the black headband. Simple. Classic.  Margulies won last night the Outstanding Actress award for her role on the hit NBC drama The Good Wife.  Congrats!
How cute was Julia Roberts in a playful and youthful  Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture mini dress with its bold beading and sexy plunging neckline? Roberts won big tonight, having many nominations and an Emmy for her role in The Normal Heart.  Loving the peep-toe pumps by Christian Louboutin. She accented the look with Irene Neuwirth jewels. Winning!
Nominated for her role in Return to Zero Lifetime mini-series, Minnie Driver was outfitted in the designs of another bumpwatch alum Marchesa. Very cute look pulled off with  Stuart Weitzman shoes,  Fred Leighton jewels and a Rauwolf clutch. Loved her since Good Will Hunting!
Padma Lakshmi  was fierce in a Ralph Rucci couture gown. The Top Chef award-winning show host donned a pair of classic Manolo Blahnik heels and also went with Fred Leighton ring and earrings, and a Judith Leiber bag. Marvelous!
One of our original features on celeb moms of twins included this gorgeous woman  Angela Bassett, nominated for her Outstanding actress for her role on the mini-series  American Horror Story was fab in this Grecian wrap Elisabetta Franchi dress, accented with an Oroton”Freize” clutch. 
These moms were really bringing the sexy tonight!
