2019 MTV VMAs: Moms on the Red Carpet

mtv vma red carpet moms

If you’ve followed this blog for the past 10 years, you know I enjoy spotting on Red Carpets the celebrity women who’ve been spotlighted here before when they were expecting a baby.

Last night, on August 26, the MTV Video Music Awards were held in New Jersey for the first time at the Prudential Center.

One of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Cardi B won for Best Hip Hop video for her song “Money” (she was nominated for Artist of the Year too but lost to Ariana Grande). She was also nominated for Best Pop video for “Please Me” with Bruno Mars and Best Dance and Best Power Anthem for “Taki Taki” and “Wish Wish,” respectively.

One other featured mama from the past Alicia Keys was nominated for the Best R&B video for the video for her song “Raise a Man” but lost to former Fifth Harmony girl band member Normani.

The show caters to younger audiences so I have to admit I’ve had to watch the nominees right before publshing this post. Shame. lol In any event, congrats to the winners and shout out to the moms who looked fab on the red carpet including:

Adriana Lima in Sally LaPointe with Chopard jewelry and Christian Louboutin heels.

Monica in Libertine

Heidi Klum in Nedo with Judith Leiber handbag and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

Blac Chyna in Attico

Whitney Port in Balmain

Lil Kim

Jenni “JWOWW” Farley in liastublla

Bollywood’s Aishwarya Rai Stunned in Ballgowns at Cannes

Our Bellyitch Bumpawatch alum, Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, looked like Cinderella in the gorgeous voluminous ballgowns she wore to the Cannes Film Festival this week.

She started her fab journey last Friday, May 19 at the annual event in France at the premiere of Okja premiere in a baby blue lace overlay Michael Cinco Couture gown at Palais des Festival.

The next day, she hit up the premiere of the  120 Beats Per Minute, the former Miss Universe who was also declared by People magazine and “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World” went with crimson. She wore a Ralph & Russo Couture dress.

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.

In Bump Watch News: Beyonce, Tori Spelling and Hannah Jeter

bumpwatch

I must admit that I enjoy that the Bey Hive is on patrol to shut down critics of Beyonce in the comment section to articles about her like this one below about her first major 3-hour shopping trip after announcing her news. Go Beygency, Go!

Oh and in other pregnant celebrity news, Tori Spelling posted a photo of herself at close to term on her social media account.

And after having very public and rumored relationships  with a bunch of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Lachey, Jessica Biel, and Adriana Lima, ex MLB star Derek Jeter and his Victoria Secret swimsuit model wife Hannah Jeter are expecting their first child together since marrying

She posted a bump photo on Instagram recently.

And now a repost of the E! article about Bey:

If you were browsing the racks at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills Thursday, you were in some special company.

Fresh off her 2017 Grammys performance and wins, Beyoncé made a rare public appearance at the luxury department store during its regular open hours and spent about three hours shopping.

The 35-year-old pop star, who is expecting twins with husband Jay Z, dressed casually in a black printed T-shirt and shorts and white sneakers and was accompanied by a group of bodyguards.

She did not buy children’s items. She walked through several floors, looking at designer gowns, purses, jewelry and shoes. She purchased a $1,225 pair of redIsabel Marart Laith leather knee-high boots, a pair of Ulla Johnson shoes and Nike sneakers, a source told E! News exclusively.

Beyoncé spent about 20 minutes in the store’s Barneys Bungalow, a specialty space where gowns from Prabal Gurung, J. Mendel, Lanvin, JC Obando, Monique Lhuillier, YSL and Manolo Blahnik and other designer brands, as well as luxury tuxedos and accessories, are displayed in honor of Hollywood’s award season. Several racks of dresses and other items were brought out for the singer, who sat on a light green couch.

“Beyoncé tried on several dresses but began not to feel well and was tired,” the source said.

“She seemed very nice and was very casual,” the source added about the singer’s visit. “She had several bodyguards around her and everyone in the store was chatting about her being there.”

The source also said Beyoncé has bought children’s items at Barney’s in the past.

The singer announced her pregnancy on Feb. 1 via a baby bump photo posted on her Instagram page. She followed it up with a full album of maternity pics, which also featured her and Jay Z’s 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

Last weekend, Beyoncé showcased her baby bump publicly for the first time, at the 2017 Grammys, where she won two awards and gave a much-talked about maternity-themed performance.

Rio Olympics: Brazilian Models Had Big Roles At the Opening Ceremony

brazilian models rio

We’ve covered several Brazilian models when they were expecting. Three of those moms, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen, got premiere roles during the torch carrying and opening ceremonies yesterday, Friday, July 5.

brazilian ambrosio

Victoria Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio carried the torch when it arrived in Rio and ran with it down the street. She was photographed kissing it right before hitting the road to meet up with the person that runner that would light her torch.

Adriana Lima was overcome with emotion after she was handed the torch.  Even with 8M followers on Instagram, the model often is in the shadow of the more famous Ambrosio and Bunchen. She said it was an honor to be one of the final torch bearers to light the pyre at the center of Olympic Stadium.

I am grateful to experience this incredible honor and dream to carry the Olympic torch, so humbled to be carrying in my home country Brazil,” she captioned a photo of herself beaming with pride while holding the torch.

Speaking of Gisele.  Brazil wouldn’t leave out its most famous star. She headlined a runway show and walked down an expansive catwalk outfitted in a gold sparkling gown by Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch. Slay Gisele!

Supermodels are supposed to be divas but Bunchen showed she could get down with the masses. After her solo catwalk, she joined her fellow countrymen in the stands to celebrate. Obviously, she too was overcome with national pride.

This isn’t the last you’ll see of these beauties during the games. They will also serve as NBC food and culture contributors during the games alongside Ryan Seacrest.

Lima boasted about the role on her Instagram.

Here’s Our 2016 CFDA Red Carpet Rundown

cfda red carpet

The 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards went down at the Hammerstein Ballroom this past Monday, June 6, 2016 in New York City. Several of our blog alums were present including Beyonce who took home the Fashion Icon Award. She shined in a glittery box cut pin-striped suit with a wide bring black hat.

beyonce cfda

“I want to say thank you to every designer who works tirelessly to make people think they can write their own story. Y’all are fairy godmothers, magicians, sculptors, and sometimes even our therapist,” Bey said during her speech (via Vogue). “I encourage you to not forget this power you have or to take it lightly. We have the opportunity to contribute to a society where any girl can look at a billboard or magazine cover and see her own reflection. Soul has no color, no shape, no form. Just like all of your work, it goes far beyond what the eye can see. You have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower, and to show people how to embrace their complications, and see the flaws, and the true beauty and strength that’s inside all of us. Thank you so much for this incredible award, I’ll never forget this night. God bless you all. Thank you.”

bey blue and jay

Her daughter Blue Ivy walked the red carpet for the first time with her mom and dad before the event.

Other of our “Bellyitch Bumpwatch” alums spotted on the red carpet included: Heidi Klum in Rolan Mouret, Jennifer Hudson in Prabal Gurung,  Alessandra Ambrosio in Michael Kors Collection, Olivia Wilde in Rosie Assoulin, Claire Danes in Calvin Klein Collection, Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Simkhai, Ciara in Roberto Cavalli, Adriana Lima in Marc Jacobs and Alicia Silverstone and Selma Blair, both in Christian Siriano, who attended the event with his design muses.

#WHCD/#NerdProm: All the Red Carpet Looks We Loved (PHOTOS)

whcd red carpet

I watched the red carpet arrivals to last night’s annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner  held at the Washington Hilton in Washingtonl DC and I spotted several of the celebrity women we’ve spotlighted on the blog before.

Kerry Washington is a regular to the event as she is an ally of the Obama administration and has been very active on several of his campaigns and policy initiatives. She attended the event this year in a black one shoulder dress with ruffles at the trim made by another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Victoria Beckham with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels, accented with Neil Lane jewelry.

Celeb moms went bold in sheer at the 2015 Met Gala

Tonight in New York city was one of the fashion industry’s biggest nights. Stars came out to full glitz and glamour to celebrate the opening of the Costume Institute‘s fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: “China: Through The Looking Glass.” 
In its honor, celebrities are asked to come dressed to the event euphemistically known as the Met Gala (or Met Ball) outfitted in custom designer originals that reflect the theme of the exhibit. 
It was a virtual reunion of sorts for us to eye the various celebrity women we’ve featured in Bellyitch in the past walk the red carpet in what is supposed to be the boldest fashion event for the year. 
Controversial and much-watched and talked about Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer co-chaired this year’s Met Gala. 
The proceeds from the event which long time Vogue editor Anna Wintour produces benefit the Costume Institute. This year the co- chairs were Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer and Wendi Murdoch.
As for the fashion, unfortunately, many played it safe and though looking amazing, were underwhelming in their interpretation of the exhibit. I saw a lot embroidered overlays on dresses and noticed that a lot of ladies selected Chinese designers. Nice.
There were some wow-worthy moments and I noticed a theme with all the mega divas rocking the sheer panel trend.
Beyonce Knowles Carter entered last on the red carpet like the queen of the ball. She stunned in a jewel and beaded embellished ultra sheer form fitting Givenchy dress which was excellently executed and pulled off because she has a much thinner frame now. She’s lost some of her signature curves for a minute I see. The high pony tail is interesting and bold risk. The winged eye liner is a nod to the theme. Jay Z was nice arm candy in his dapper tux.

Not to be outdone, Jennifer Lopez too showed off her fabulous body in a sheer nude Atelier Versace  dress with red sequins overlay, paired with a crimson clutch covered in Swarvoski crystals. It was signature J.Lo.
Kim Kardashian went sheer too in this fabulous well-designed custom Roberto Cavalli dress that hugged her curves with strategically placed beaded and jeweled embroider overlay and an elaborate feathered train. It was very eye-catching and drool worthy indeed.  Hubby Kanye West looked nice too. 

Sarah Jessica Parker did weave in the theme by topping her black Asian-inspired kimono dress she designed for H&M with a Philip Treacy head piece. Of course she wore her SJP Collection on her feet while toting a cute Fendi clutch (not seen in photo). Her jewels were by Jennifer Fisher, Cindy Chao, and Fred Leighton.

New mom Olivia Wilde also portrayed the theme in Prada with a muted silver Prada clutch, gloves and head band and Solange Azagury-Partridge earrings.

Sienna Miller was giving me Asian page boy in this Thakoon fringed tuxedo pants set. I love how that jacket opens in the front and the tassel earrings and belt really set off this look. She carried a matching red Rauwolf clutch in hand.

Emily Blunt channeled her inner geisha in Prada‘s take on the kimono. She went with Anna Hu earnings and a midnight blue Prada clutch.

Kate Hudson‘s interpretation of Chinese design was exquisitely done by Michael Kors in this custom gown that featured intricate gold leafing layered over the bodice of the dress. The top bun completes this look for me. Gorg!  Slay!

I didn’t really see Chinese aesthetic in this Zac Posen gown that Katie Holmes wore but I was convinced by the dramatic bob hair with the bangs. Nice.

Kerry Washington brought in spring in this very full asymmetric Prada ball gown that she creatively paired with green satin pumps and clutch, while rocking fine Harry Winston jewels. I could see the artwork of a Chinese relief painting in the embroidered embellishments in the train.

Claire Danes too didn’t really do the theme thing but she did look nice in this forest green black leather belted Valentino dress that she wore with Fred Leighton jewels. She managed to bring in edgy with the dark lips.

I could appreciate designer Roland Mouret‘s silhouette and handiwork on this dress Maggie Gyllenhaal is outfitted in. It reminds me of a work of abstract art. She carried a gold Palais Royal clutch.

We had a baby on board tonight as Jaime King worked the red carpet in radiant orange. She accented the look in red custom Jason Wu clutch and heels and dripped in Forevermark diamonds.

Miranda Kerr pulled off the modern Chinese millennial businesswoman in this black and silver Louis Vuitton mini dress. I think the middle of the head parted slick back hair works great with this look.

Fellow model Adriana Lima looked like a porcelain China doll in this custom Marc Jacobs dress, accented with Chopard jewelry, and a Judith Leiber clutch.



Another top model Lily Aldridge‘s  Carolina Herrera dress looked like water flowing to me and I absolutely loved it. One of my favorites of the night. The quirky fish clutch was a nice eclectic added touch. See the visual effect comes through totally.

More embroidered overlay in this gorgeous custom  Louis Vuitton dress that actress Jennifer Connelly wore, paired with  Jessica McCormack jewelry.

Wow! Uma Thurman is statuesque and striking in this white Versace dress that gives off a Grecian feel to me. Wrong country but still a beautiful look Oscar worthy not Met ball edgy enough.

As usual, Solange  Knowles pushed the envelope and wasn’t afraid of going bold and over the top in this Giles Deacon creation that resembles a Chinese fan. Well played.

As she always does, Ivanka Trump looked stunning in Oscar de la Renta and Cindy Chao jewels. It’s classic Ivanka and the extra long train with the white block in the train is the “extra”  for the Met Gala.

I really liked Alicia Keys  in this playful Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble. It’s a mix of structured on top with that sharp fitted jacket and bustier juxtaposed with feminine daintiness on the bottom with the ballerina tulle but it works.

Reese Witherspoon was sophisticated bombshell in ruby red Jason Wu. A beautiful yet safe and non-newsworthy choice.
