I love the color black and I love clean lines and simple classic silhouettes and so naturally, my blog’s Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum and recipient of one of our fashion mom icon awards is Victoria Beckham.

I am uber excited to see her  launch a line of children’s clothing in partnership with Target.

The mega retail chain will sell the 200+ piece collection at a modest price point starting $6 to $70 beginning April 9, 2017. Along with her signature silhouettes, Beckham will introduce kids’ attire.And her daughter Harper may have influenced the timing. She turns 5 this year, as does Beckham’s line.

“I felt it was the perfect time to extend into a more accessible price point and to celebrate both milestones,” said the designer in a statement. While we wait for the big reveal, here we pinpoint a few of the designer’s style signatures that we hope will make their way into the collection.

I’m super excited!! She was named the celebrity designer who wears her own line most and BEST by me! (weeeee!!!)

The items will also be available on Beckham’s website, victoriabeckham.com

I thoroughly enjoyed and learned a bunch about the former Spice girl from this version of Vogue’s video series 73 Questions….like she really sincerely digs her husband, David Beckham! She brings him up much in her answers.

Victoria Beckham Wins the Contest of Celeb Who Wears Her Own Line Most/Best

victoria beckham

If there was an award for the celebrity designer who does the best job at wearing and promoting her own line it would go to Victoria Beckham. There isn’t a black and/or white combo the former Spice Girl doesn’t like and whenever she’s spotted out and about, whether by the paparazzi, on a red carpet or doing a press appearance, she is wearing clothing from her high end label.

There is a reason she was named one (and the first) of Bellyitch’s Fashion Mom Icon.

Mrs. David Beckham‘s stuff is classic, chic and basic. They have clean lines and because there is so much black, the clothing can complement well with other pieces and flatter women of different shapes and sizes.

vb jumpusuit

The price points, though steep for most people’s common budgets, still vary.  For example, one can nab this cotton blend jumpsuit from her line which is down and half off from $1,600 to $650.   It has a slim but boxy fit and could be rocked with patent pumps or sandals.

vb dress

On the other end of the spectrum is this $3,995 strapless Corset flare wool dress which comes with a diamond broach.  It looks fabulous and the A-line is wonderful for accenting a nice neckline while de-emphasizing the hips.

vb sripes

In the middle of that price range is this $1,500 striped knitted top from Beckham. Cute but wow!  I think right now, is second with her new line named after her grandparents,

I tried on Most of Victoria Beckham’s Target Collection Released Today

17883827_10154176504976353_516278969222178939_n
Last October, we let you know that our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum and blog fave Victoria Beckham was set to launch her first ever children’s line as a part of a collaboration with big box retailer Target.

Well that time is now, actually today April 9 thru the end of the month April 30 while supplies last, you can get VB x Target clothing for toddlers, kids, and adults.

17757606_10154176504961353_2039209237385388172_n

I headed over to my local Target after a friend texted me a reminder that the clothing was available and being snatched up in Target stores nationwide and I wanted to experience it for myself first hand and get some snaps of the pieces on the shelves and racks.  I was expecting something like the  the carnage that went down when Balmain released a line for H&M.

Beckham is following in the footsteps of other designer brands including Rodarte, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, Missoni, and Peter Pilotto, which have all dreamed up affordable wares for Target over the years. “For a while now, I have been thinking, how great it would be to work on clothes for a customer that either doesn’t want to pay or can’t pay designer prices,” Beckham said in a statement. “So when Target — a company based on accessibility and inclusiveness — proposed a collaboration which combined all of these things, it was an easy decision to make.”

Beckham’s collabo was different because hers will have larger sizes in the store where before they were only available online, and it was cause for criticism in the past, as with the insanely popular Lilly Pulitzer collaboration.

17883748_10154176552686353_405004593902250902_n

In any of event, when I got to my local store, I didn’t see any mad rush but rather a few families checking out the racks. I waited patiently for them to skedaddle along because I wanted to get a good photo of the Sign.

17861920_10154176504876353_5127529402379877695_n

This store had the entire collection for all age groups in one section. I could easily ascertain that the cute grey ribbed jumper sets, the layette collection of bibs and onesies were for babies. The girl toddler selection is absolutely aforable and they looked like the kind of clothes you could imagine Harper Beckham wore when she was that age.

17634806_10154176504881353_7869726349684484443_n

But not so much with the other items in the collection, which comes in signature colors of black, white, grey, orange and brand mascot bunny and bees. The collections include: Circus Scallops, Pressed English flowers, English Lace, Clever Bunny and Pop Floral.

17862627_10154176504866353_4415152486908416089_n

Because the clothing for children mirror the adult version and there were a lot of sheath dresses, I didn’t know which was for kids and which for adults.

17884145_10154176504861353_8829160139062233612_n

I like what I saw, generally.  The quality of the construction  of the clothing, the material’s weight and the look were all top quality. They had a high end aesthetics to them as well. My fave is the see thru raincoat for kids.

17883677_10154176504781353_8390653573043611665_n

17861570_10154176504871353_605223129842211475_n

Also, I loved the paper dolls, coloring book and sticker books.

Because I wanted to see how the clothing would look on an average size and shaped woman who is not a model, I tried on a few pieces.

17799307_10154176504971353_4317323591739302730_n

Again, I couldn’t tell from just looking at the clothing which would fit. They all looked to run large, and I saw a few people on social media complaining about that but when you actually put on the pieces, you realize they aren’t large at all. Just in case, I picked up an item in every size and would you believe, she fit in them all!?! Look:

Admittedly, I squeezed in this orange. It is a size xs and I could certainly go up two sizes. *snicker*. My fave piece is the  Black Calla Lily Button Down Top. It fit quite comforably and I really dig the Nero type collar.

17861947_10154176503461353_2259931193687703472_n

These pieces are among the other 200 items in the ready to wear line that includes rompers, playful tops and dresses. About designing for kids, Beckham said it was something she has wanted to do for years.

“Designing for children is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I was incredibly excited to be able to incorporate childrenswear into this collection,” she said on a blog post on the Target site. “When working on it, I really felt I could tell a story and have fun with it—and I think the clothes reflect just how much fun I had designing them! Being a mother has helped me understand what’s important when it comes to the category. I have had years of learning that function is often just as important as form, and that children need to be able to feel comfortable and free in what they wear. For me it was really all about finding a balance between the fun elements and the real-life functionality of a garment.”

Victoria Beckham for Target ranges in price from $6-$70, with most items under $40, and will be offered in sizes XS-3X for women and NB-XL for girls, toddler and baby. The collection will be available April 9 through April 30, 2017, or while supplies last, at all Target stores and Target.com with  select pieces available for global shoppers via VictoriaBeckham.com. There are a few online exclusives as well.

Before the launch, Beckham shared a commercial for the line which she says is reminiscent of her days as a member of the popular 1990s British girl group, the Spice Girls. In the background to the commercial plays the group’s most famous song, “Spice Up Your Life.”

She also said the inspiration was her daughter.

“I’m reading my life with Harper and what we do as mother and daughter not just with regards to the clothes, but I created some little coloring books and sticker books, and, you know, it’s things that myself and Harper do in England together,” Beckham explained in a promo video. “This is celebrating my relationship with my daughter, and I think it’s great that other women can do exactly the same…. The inspiration behind this campaign was a world of possibilities–make-believe, imagination, and the unexpected.”

Nice!

Harper Beckham beats Blue Ivy and North West as most coveted celebrity child model

So Blue Ivy and North West aren’t the most sought after child models after all?
The UK Telegraph claims that Harper Beckham‘s parents Victoria and David Beckham have been offered up to $30 million worth of modeling contracts since she was spotted sitting in the front row at her mom’s New York Fashion Week show last week.
“Companies see her as the greatest role model for a wholesome, modern family image,”an insider reportedly stated. “She’s surrounded by a happily-married working couple and go-getting brothers. You cannot buy that kind of appeal.”
The same insider said that mom and dad have rejected all offers. 
Must be nice to be able to afford to turn down all that dough.

The Expensive Ways Celebrities Prepare For a New Baby

kim K in a yellow truck

For most people, the glamorous life is a fantasy and something some aspire to attain. It’s why we love celebrities and high profile people.

It’s why shows like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and more recently, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and half of the Bravo TV line up do so well.

If we were to be totally engaged with that lifestyle, here is one of the ways we would make our 2020 amazing.

Get Extravagant PUSH presents like Sports Cars

One of the best ways that you can make your 2020 more glamorous if you are a celebrity is to invest your money in a new sports car. Travis Scott famously gifted his ex Kylie Jenner a $1.4M Ferrari after she welcomed the couple’s first child together, Stormi Webster.

Take Luxury Babymoons

Us peons may take a Babymoon to Miami to get away before baby arrives.

Celebrities have access to more luxurious locales. Ciara who is expecting her third child, but second with her husband Russell Wilson announced the news while chilling on a rock in Turks and Caicos.

They just whip out their list of some of the most glamorous destinations that you can visit and close their eyes and pick!

Start a Maternity Fashion Line

When we get pregnant and can find something chic to wear, we hold on to our non maternity clothes for as long as we can before having to break out the overalls and succumb to the belly. Celebrity women just call up a few sponsors and brands and start an entire fashion line. Several famous women like Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham and Jessica launched maternity fashion lines while expecting.

If we wanted to emulate that sort of extravagance we would have to do stuff like hit the vintage shops or sell our old clothes on sites like Depop

Buy New Homes for Baby

When baby makes three, the average new family convert the old study into a nursery or clean out the spare room. Stars purchase a larger home to accommodate the nanny and extra staff that will be on board to help them navigate parenthood.

To prepare for the arrival of their first child together, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis upgraded their home and purchased a $10M 3 bedroom, 4 bath Beverly Hills home to accommodate their growing family, according to US Weekly. They aren’t the only ones.

Purchase the Most Expensive Crib

Finally, while the rest of us are scouring sale ads and stalking Groupon for deals on strollers and car seats, celebs like Beyonce splurge on high price top of the line products like purchasing a $3,500 lucite crib for her first child Blue Ivy.

And not just cribs, these high paid figures can afford to get the most expensive car seat, designer new born clothing and more. It’s part of the perk of being wealthy.

In the meantime, we gawk and point and admire from our computer screens.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Married!

Today, Suits actress Meghan Markle and her fiancé married at the St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The bride looked elegant and radiant in a simple but classic long sleeve satin gown by Givenchy with a cathedral train. She also wore a heirloom tiara, little make up and tiny silver  studded earrings with hair hair simple. Nothing ornate or over-the-top.

The ceremony infused her African American culture with British traditon. The Kingdom Choir, a predominantly black Christian gospel choir from South London performed a marvelous rendition of the Ben E. King R&B song “Stand By Me” during the ceremony and the Gospel version of “Amen” during the recession, and ended it with “This Little Light Of Mine” which is commonly sung in black churches.

An American Episcopalian clergy, Bishop Michael Curry, gave a spirited and passionate 20-minute love-themed sermon that invoked quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. and scripture.

It has been the talk of the Internet because of how different it is from the usual stoic sermons heard at formal Royal religious ceremonies.

A 19-year old cellist with Sierra Leonean and Caribbean heritage from a large musical family, Sheku Kanneh-Mason beautifully performed a number of selection.

It was a preeminent event witnessed by thousands who lined the streets along the route to the chapel and the millions watching on Tv and screens across the globe.

Along with Markle’s brand new sister in law Pippa Middleton who is expecting her first child, also in attendance were new moms, Pippa’s sister Kate Middleton, Amal Clooney and Serena Williams with their respective spouses Best Man Prince William, George Clooney and Alexis Ohanian.

Vet Mom designer, tastemaker and Spice Girl alum Victoria Beckham and her hubby David Beckham were there too looking debonair and dapper. Oh Lady Oprah Winfrey attended along with the usual band of royals and British celebs!

Congrats!

Given the #WHCD was Light on Celebs This Year, Let’s Look Back At Celebs Who Walked Its Red Carpet Pregnant

The annual White House Correspondents Association dinner has increasingly been a haven for Hollywood Celebrities who walk the red carpet on their way to hob nob with journalism’s elite that cover the White House.

This year was much different.

 

The current sitting president Donald J. Trump choose to sit it out, a first time since Ronald Reagan  that a President opted to skip the event which usually features a comedian roasting the prez and the media and the pres himself giving a monologue full of self-deprecating humor.

[Even when Reagan skipped it, that was because he was shot on the way in, though to be fair other presidents who were very unpopular at the time Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon have skipped the elite dinner in the past, the only other two since Calvin Coolidge]

This year, the event was also super light on the usual parade of celebrities. That might be a good thing in the eyes of many who have heavily criticized the dinner for becoming to glamourized and Hollywoodized.  Celebrated national TV broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw famously skips it and has been vocal as to his reasons why.

Nonetheless, we usually can spot several celebrity moms we’ve covered in the past to feature on the blog. In the very recent past 8 years, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson, Cynthian Nixon, Adriana Lima, Neve Campbell, Emma Watson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Regina King, Anna Chlumsky, Julianna Margulies, Katie Couric, Sofia Vergara, Shonda Rhimes, Rosario Dawson, Candace Cameron Bure, model Emily Ratajowski, Vivica A. Fox, Lupita Nyong’o, Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, Kendell Jenner, Laverne Cox, Lucy Liu, Gabrielle Union have all attended as guests of various news organizations that purchase tables.

Not this year. We didn’t see any. There were a few celebs and some of DC’s A-listers [read: TV journalists and broadcast reporters] there but that’s about it.  And with Trump declaring war on the media, the White House press corp and DC establishment, none in his administration or celebs friendly to him failed to show up as well.

So…we’re doing the next best thing and flashbacking to all the ones who did show up in years past. Interesting enough, most of them were preggers at the time!

Last year, in 2016, while pregnant with her second child, daughter, Isabella, Kerry Washington attempted to conceal her bump in an A-line one shoulder black mini Victoria Beckham mini dress.

In 2015, Glee alum Naya Rivera looked radiant in a white floor length  Tadashi Shoji evening gown and model Anne V ‘s lovely floral gown rocked that year as well.

In 2014, TODAY show anchor Savannah Guthrie was six-months pregnant with her first child when she showed up in a pink dress to the event.

Going further back, Anna Paquin was expecting her first children, a pair of twins, with husband Stephen Moyer in 2011 when she attended the event, also affectionately known as the “Nerd Prom”, wearing a chic and elegant silk jersey gown by French designer Herve L. Leroux.

That same year, Reese Witherspoon was also expecting her third child, but first with second husband Jim Toth. She also went with black in a Monique Lhuillier  gown showing her barely there bump at the time.

 

There you have it! The White House Correspondents Association dinner  has been noteworthy for Bumpwatch coverage history.

LAX Style: Only Celebs Look This Good for A Flight

airport style

Yes Celebrity Airport Style is a thing. Regular folks like you and I know that when we travel by air, we need to be comfortable so we may layer t-shirts, wear jeans, yoga or jogging pants, slip on shoes and a sweater or shawl. But if you know that you will be photographed by tons of paparazzi from the curb to the gate, you might as well look fabulous, right?

I mean, there are  even Tumblr blogs dedicated to Celebrity Airport Fashion.  Here are how some our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums dressed pretty chic, sophisticated and heavily over-styled for taking a flight.
