Johansson was stunning in a satin teal low cut Armani Prive dress.
Nicole Kidman went old Hollywood glam in Michael Kors.

Anne Hathaway has had some super glamorous and stunning pieces while promoting her new Amazon original series Modern Love!
Last week, she stunned in a gorgeous cream Oscar de la Renta asymmetrical peplum -type top over a matching skirt while promoting the project in New York City on Thursday.
Earlier in her pregnancy, the Ocean’s 8 star stunned in a hot pink dress with a bump-revealing side cut outs while attending the FIJI Water At Sea Wall / A Life Opening Night On Broadway event on August 08, 2019 in New York City.
And last month, we were crushing the gorgeous Valentino Maxi dress the Devil Wears Prada star wore to the Amazon Prime Video’s Television Critics Association press event in Beverley Hills, California.
The floor-length dress from the design house’s 2019 Resort Collection was decorated with what looked like Venetian artwork on the front and featured yellow pleats and billowy sleeves.
The New York native, who shares a 3-year old son named Jonathan with husband Adam Shulman.
She announced her pregnancy on Instagram with a July mirror selfie.
“It’s not for a movie,” she captioned the black-and-white pic at the time. “#2. All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love.”
She previously opened up to to Entertainment Tonight about her infertility struggles that week:
“There is a one-sided narrative to this and, of course, it’s wonderful that we celebrate the happy moment when it’s ready to share. I think there is a silence around the moments before that and they are not all happy and, in fact, a lot of them are quite painful. I think that pain is that these women feel like we’re the only ones going through it.”
She added, “I just knew that somewhere my announcement was going to make somebody feel worse about themselves because — and it wouldn’t be their fault that that happened — you just can’t help it when you want something so bad and it feels like it’s happening to everyone else but you. And I just wanted that person to know that they’re included in my story too and that my story didn’t just have happy moments too.”
The Primetime Emmys went down tonight at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
In contention for awards were several of the celeb moms we’ve featured on the blog in year’s past including Anna Chlumsky (in J. Mendel) for Best Lead Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Veep and Christina Applegate (in Vera Wang) who was nominated but didn’t win Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her amazing role in Dead To Me and finally Laura Linney who did win the Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Ozark.

Henson also in Vera Wang; Regina King in Jason Wu; Betthany Frankel in stunning Alex Perry dress, Iris & Ink shoes, and an Audemars Piguet watch.
