Red Carpet AMA Trends: Black, Velour and Pink!

I’ve missed a few red carpet coverage because…life but I was quite excited about what I saw this week at the American Music Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater on November 19, 2017 in Los Angeles, California….A lot of pink and black, but not together!

Speaking of P!nk, she and our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kelly Clarkson performed together.

Not a mom but a blog fave, Tracee Ellis Ross killed it as host and the tribute to her mom Diana Ross who took home the Lifetime Achievement Award was all that and a bag of chips! (Do the kids still use that phrase?)

In the mix was her daughter in law Ashlee Simpson Ross, whose husband is Evan Ross, the baby boy of the Ross family.  their daughter Jagger Snow stole the show! Ashlee wore a Christian Siriano dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.

She was part of the sequins in black trim along with Clarkson who also went bold and brave in a velour and gold gown hugging her gorgeous hour glass figure. I’m loving her sleek blunt parted ombre hair too.

Kelly Rowland too did black with floral in a interesting long split Galia Lahav dress  with sheer sleeves, fresh off witnessing Serena Williams‘ nuptials in New Orleans last Thursday. Her good friend Ciara went a bit S&M in an asymmetric black leather coat dress by Alexandre Vauthier haute couture and thigh high boots with wet look hair. Nicole Kidman played in safe in Black as well but looked stunning as usual in an Olivier Theyskens dress, Giuseppe Zanotti boots, a Versace bag, Fred Leighton jewels, and an Omega watch

Opting for the lighter part of the spectrum was Heidi Klum in a pink and gold slip dress with a deep v plunging neckline which is in a vintage Gianni Versace from Morphew, accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

Mom-to-be country singer Jessie James Decker did a shade of pink too in a bump hugging off-the-shoulder dress, a shade of pink. Speaking of P!nk, she too went with the color of her name in a hot pink and tulle  Monique Lhullier dress and her signature pink hair.  Jenna Dewan-Tatum in gold and looked hot as usual in a beautiful Julien MacDonald gown, John Hardy jewels, and Giuseppe Zanotti  strappy sandals.

Congrats to our alums Shakira for winning Favorite Latin artist and Carrie Underwood for winning Favorite Female Country Artist. 

One of the first celebrities we ever bump watched, Christina Aquilera brought the house down in a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the Kevin Costner, Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard singing “I Will Always Love You”, “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You” and “I’m Every Woman”. She killed it in my book! Did all the songs justice and Whitney with her voice, range and power! Wow!

The 2017 MTV VMA Red Carpet, Celeb Mama Edition

It has been a minute since I did a red carpet review! Thank goodness for tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) at The Forum in Inglewood, California for breaking the drought.

Eudoxie Agnan and hubby Ludacris (real name Chris Bridges) are crusing through their honeymoon stage of their marriage and she is looking hawt on his arms on red carpets always. I did notice that she always wears black and never deviates but each time, she wears dresses with nice cuts that hug her curvaceous figure. I love the simplicity of the t-neck on this dress.

Heidi Klum always dresses like a pageant queen to me and tonight, she looked went with one of those trending lace see through dresses with a peekaboo cleavage, also a hot trend. I don’t like the color of that dress on her as I feel it washes her out and is too neutral and I don’t think it flatters her shape.

I do love the dress, however. It is by Dundass. She accented it with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and some hot strappy  metallic gold colored Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Pink (real name Alecia Beth Moore Hart) is being honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award tonight and to celebrate, she brought 3/4ths of her family along including husband, former motorcross professional Cary Hart and 5-year old daughter Willow. Eight month-old baby Jameson, her second child, is probably home with nana. They wore matching pen stripe man cut suits! Yup! Even little Willow! It was cute!

I’m not sure if Mel B was sending a message to her estranged soon-to-be ex husband with a colorful glittery pencil length dress that reads “You Will Never Own Me” or paying homage to Lesley Gore‘s 1967 song “You Don’t Own Me” or Grace’s hit cover, but it was eye catching and I loved it.

She wore her hair in a sandy brown blunt messy half bob and red pumps. She and Klum arrived at the show together, according to her Instagram feed. 

Amber Rose threw everyone for a loop by ditching her signature blonde buzz cut for wavy auburn brown side swept hair. She wore a figure hugging sheer see-through gown. I was not feeling the deep burgundy lip but if she was going for sexy goth then it works!

 

Which Designers Dressed the Celeb Moms of the 2017 Golden Globe Red Carpet

yellow-golden-globe

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.

We, like many other fashion sites and bloggers, noticed some clear trends such as the Yellow trend. Also, there were a lot of women in metallics on the carpet as well.

golden-globe-mettalics

Loved Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Fred Leighton jewelry with her own engagement ring, an Omega watch, and a Judith Leiber bag; Regina King ( in a Ramona Keveza dress, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and jewelry by Butani, L’Dezen, and Yvel while carrying a Tadashi bag); Chrissy Teigen (in a Marchesa dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and a Jimmy Choo clutch) and Kristin Cavallari  (in an Idan Cohen dress, Hearts On Fire  and Doves jewels)

black-and-white-gg

Black and White was another common theme: Teresa Palmer (in an Armani Prive dress, Niwaka jewelry, Sophia Webster shoes, and a Jimmy Choo bag. ( Heidi Klum (in a J Mendel dress, Giuseppe Zanottti shoes and clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.); and Sienna Miller in a Michale Kors Collection gown, Bally shoes, a Christian Louboutin clutch, and Tiffany & Co jewelry).

ornate-and-structure

Some dresses were ornate and had lots of unique draping and structure: Busy Phillips (in a Stella McCartney dress and Irene Neuwirth jewelry); Jessica Biel (in an Elie Saab Haute Couture sleeveless deep-v neckline gown with black velvet bodice and mini checkerboard print skirt set with sequins, embellished with flowers in silk mousseline, sequins, crystal stones, silk threads and beads and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, an Elie Saab dress, and Neil Lane jewelry); Anna Chlumsky ( in a Roland Mouret dress, Loeffler Randall shoes, H Stern earrings, Hearts on Fire rings, and Tyler Ellis bag) and Carrie Underwood (in an Iris Serban gown, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Yoko London jewelry, and a Tadashi Shoji clutch.)

deep-v-and-mixed-metallic-and-fabric

We also saw a lot of very deep cut neckline and a few like Thandie Newton ( in a gorgeous white Monse dress with metallic train, Harry Winston jewelry, and Jimmy Choo shoes., Drew Barrymore ( in a Monique Lhuillier dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Harry Winston jewelry.); Felicity Huffman (in Georges Chakra jumpsuit, Martin Katz jewelry, and Christian Louboutin shoes) and Blake Lively ( in and Atelier Versace dress, Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.)

Beauties!

James Reynolds Steals Spotlights like Riley Curry

lively-reynolds

We think that James Reynolds must be taking notes from Riley Curry! She totally stole the spotlight yesterday, when her dad Ryan Reynolds was uncovering his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame near Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood California on Thursday.



This event featured the first time that Blake Lively showed her baby and revealed that she had a baby girl a couple of months ago.  The famously private couple have not let released her name. And James showed that she is ready for the cameras. Rocking a cute varsity jacket, a colorful dress and polka dot tigths with black Converse high tops.

Love it!

Mom looked amazing in a tea-length blue chiffon Atelier Versace dress, wine colored peep-toe Christian Louboutin sandals, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, while the proud papa was dapper in a three-piece suit.

2016 Grammys Red Carpet: All Black Everything, Slits & Lesser Known Designers

grammy 2016

Ok. This 2016 Red Carpet report is very late because this year, instead of just covering the Red Carpet, I actually took the time I usually spend to assemble my red carpet coverage to instead  actually watch the show. Wrong move.

  • sigh *

Besides a few highlights, the 58th annual Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California was very underwhelming. Even the fashion on the Red Carpet was * meh * .

One of the best parts wasn’t even in the show, but our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gwen Stefani doing the first ever Live Music Video of her latest single “Make Me Love You” in a Target sponsored spot.

I kept wanting the award show broadcast to get better but it didn’t really rise the level of awesomeness I’m used to. Anyway, so enough of my excuses. Back to the Red Carpet coverage.

This year, the theme I saw woven in many of the looks was Black. Also there were plenty deep Slits in the leg and I saw several lesser-known designers shine.

As usual, while many people stood out, we focused on the celebrity moms we’ve featured on the blog before.

Alessandra Ambrosio stayed true to Versace and her ring game was on fire!

TV host and former reality TV star Vanessa Simmons looked quite regal in yellow.

Ciara bared leg and then some in a sexy Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture gown. I dare say she won the battle of whose slit could go up the farthest.

And Carrie Underwood looked stunning in a Nicolas Jebran satin ball gown also with a deep side slit.

adele chrissy vanessa 2016 grammys

Adele stuck to her signature black in a sequinned Givenchy dress accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen looked quite royal in Yousef Al-Jasmi with Stuart Weitzman heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Between the heels and the long cape, I admit I was biting my nails in hoping she didn’t trip given she’s in her third trimester of her pregnancy.

Vanessa Lachey went for the vixen look in her Michael Cinco butterfly overlay sequined dress with a very sheer bottom.

Adele did deviate from black and went with Givenchy again for her stage performance of her latest single “All I Ask”.

 

She had a slight glitch in the beginning when the mics for the piano apparently fell off and landed on the baby grande’s strings. It made her sound off pitch or key at times. Apparently, those in the Staples Center couldn’t tell as they heard a near flawless version of the song.



 

Underwood also rocked out with Sam Hunt on stage

And finally, Queen Bey made an appearance to announce Record of the Year in slick back hair, natural make up and a organza, lace and embroidered gown.

2016 Golden Globes: What they Wore; Who Won (PHOTOS)

golden globes color

The 2016 Golden Globes brought out the glamour and glitz as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association set out to honor the top talent in film and television at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday, January 10.

As usual, we highlight the celeb moms we’ve covered in the past who we spotted receiving and presenting awards and shining on the red carpet during arrivals.

Viola Davis presented and was up for a win for Best Actress in a TV drama as was Regina King who had a nod for her role in American Crime. Davis lost to Henson and King lost to the upset of the night, Lady Gaga for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel.

Jennifer Lopez,  Olivia Wilde, Bryce Dallas Howard, Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal presented awards.

Here’s what (and who) everyone wore starting with bold colors worn by (above) Olivia Wilde in form fitting sequinned wine-colored custom Michael Kors Collection with quaint and cute vintage Bulgari jewels and clutch with  custom dyed Aldo shoes; Jennifer Lopez in a caped and draped mustard-colored Giambattista Valli accented with Harry Winston jewelry, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a sizzling silver Judith Leiber clutch; Taraji P.

Painting the town BLUE was Jenna Dewan-Tatum in gorgeous deep cut organza and embellished Zuhair Murad and Lorraine Schwartz jewels; Kate Winslet in a Ralph Lauren halter neckline dress with Neil Lane Jewels; Viola Davis in another one of our Bellyitch alums designer ( Georgina Chapman)  Marchesa with Jacob & Co. jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and a Judith Leiber clutch; and

Bryce Dallas Howard in Jenny Packham , Irene Neuwirth jewels, Miu Miu shoes, and a Kotur clutch.

In muted tones but wearing knock out and stand out dresses: Pretty in Pink Kate Hudson in a shimmery crop top and skirt by Michael Kors Collection, a  Jimmy Choo box clutch, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Forevermark Diamonds jewelry; Heidi Klum also in Marchesa with Stuart Weitzman shoes and Lorraine Schwartz earrings; Regina King stunning in a gold caped Krikor Jabotian gown paired with Rene Caovilla shoes, Coomi earrings and Alan Friedman ring; Maggie Gyllenhaal in a black and gold floral print Marc Jacobs dress with Monolo Blahnik shoes, and Forevermark jewels; and Malin Akerman in a lace Reem Acra peplum bodice gown.

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!

2014 MTV VMA: Kelly Rowland and Celebrity moms Rock the Red Carpet

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are going on right now tonight at The Forum in Inglewood, California and we spotted some of our fab fantastic Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms rocking the red carpet

Queen B – Beyonce is up for several awards, the most tonight. She looked hot in black jeweled Nicolas Jebran gown, accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Christian Louboutin heels.

Caliente! Jennifer Lopez is one bad mama! She was sizzling in a silver jeweled Charbel Zoe gown with several intricate cut outs. And check out that slit. The look was styled perfectly with some jeweled Jimmy Choo pumps and Norman Silverman jewels and a silver python Thalé BlancTalia Mini Fastueux’ clutch.

Gwen Stefani was very youthful in a hot pink and black pants suit from her own l.a.m.b. couture line with black pumps. Work it mama!

Kim Kardashian is giving us major face and showing off the girls again in this tri-colored beaded cape and mini dress with a plunging neckline with hawt gladiator ankle booties.

Kelly Rowland was glowing in a cream colored flowing ball gown accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Amber Rose was “OMG” worthy in this jeweled dress with jeweled panty and bra covered in cascading jeweled chains. Totally channeling Rose McGowan, circa 1998 MTV VMAs. Saucy!

Finally, model Jourdan Dunn who we featured in 2009 when she was pregnant with her first child at age 19 looked super cute in a Balmain bandeu top and floor length skirt. Love the slick bob!
