How Olivia Culpo’s Marchesa Water Dress helps Charity


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


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,” 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!”


Kim Kardashian covers Vogue same month her baby clothing line to launch (VIDEO)

Kim Kardashian finally landed on the cover of Vogue magazine. 
Who knows if it was the many attempts from momager Kris Jenner or her fiance Kanye West who declared on Ryan Secrest‘s KiisFM radio show last October that it was “ludicrous” that his reality TV star girl hadn’t been on the cover yet.  
But alas, she’s there now in the April 2014 edition of the iconic and exclusive elite fashion magazine, posing with West on the cover and with their daughter North inside.
And even though Kanye has dabbled much with couture fashion designing, Kim’s had her feet in the designer waters for a while with the Kardashian Kollection she and her sisters create for Sears.
Last month, Kim confirmed that the three are going to launch a line of their collection that will feature baby clothes. When a fan asked, on the MobioInsider app where fans query their favorite celebrities,  if she only dressed North, she replied with the news.

The Kardashian sisters will join a long line of celebrities that have baby clothes lines that include Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani and Heidi Klum.

Check out the video Vogue released of the photo shoot below.

Happy Birthday, Kerry Washington!

Happy Birthday, Bellyitch Bumpwatch Babe and Mom-to-be, 
Kerry Washington

The Emmy-nominated star of Scandal turns 37 today.
Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha of the National Football League are expecting their first child together since marrying last summer.
The Golden Globe nominee has a fan in the First Lady of the United States too.
In an interview that aired yesterday with Ryan Secrest, Mrs. Michelle Obama said she enjoys Washington in the hit ABC drama about fictional crisis manager Olivia Pope who solves national and international crisis while balancing internal turmoil about having an affair with the fictional president.
Oooh! Too close for comfort? Not for Mrs. O who caught up on the series during a very long flight to her vacation home in Hawaii over the Christmas break.
“I watched all the seasons, I caught up on ‘Scandal,’ I had never watched it,” the first lady said. “I love Kerry Washington, she is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

During the interview, Kim confirmed that her baby is due in July (same as Kate Middleton‘s) and during the same month that Penelope Disick, Kourtney Kardashian‘s daughter was born. 

She also said that she has the same fertility challenges that her sister Khloe Kardashian has and was pleasantly surprised to get pregnant despite the odds docs gave her about getting pregnant.
Dang Khloe! Dang!
Kim said that the pregnancy is still “sinking in.”
“I think until I really start seeing like a belly, it won’t start sinking in,” she said. “It’s just like a weird realization. I think until you start seeing the real physical changes, yoou know every day is different.”
She confirmed that Kanye took it upon himself to announce the pregnancy without warning her in advance. *side eye*
Reports say Kardashian, who is “traditional”, and West will exchange rings that they will not wear on their left index fingers as traditional married couples. A friend has loaned them a Malibu mansion to host the event that promises to be low key. Kardashian is still technically still married to her ex Kris Humphries who has not yet signed the offiical divorce papers while still working out details of the formal separation.
An insider also reveals that West may force Kardashian to leave her reality tv business because he doesn’t want his child growing under the public limelight.
““I know deep down, [Kanye] isn’t trying to pimp out his baby like that,” the source told Hollywood Life. “He and Kim got way more than enough money to take care of 100 kids if they want to have that many. But he know that when it comes to Kim and her family, especially that mother of hers, it’s all business and that show is how they make their money. So he juggling all this [stuff] in his head right now, but he ain’t all hyped about it yet because [the filming] hasn’t gone down yet.”  
Interesting. Ryan Secrest has been going around saying that Kim’s pregnancy will  be featured big in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
