A Look Back at Anne Hathaway’s Stunning Red Carpet Maternity Style

anne hathaway fashion red carpet

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.”

2019 BET Awards: RHOA’s Eva Marcille Elegant Red Carpet Look

Real Housewives of Atlanta housewife Eva Marcille looked stunning while attending last night’s BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on June 23rd.

The model and America’s Top Model winner is expecting her third child with husband, attorney and former Atlanta mayoral candidate Micheal Sterling.

The actreass wore a signature Michael Costello draped floor length blush colored gown with a deep leg slit with a mesh cut-out top, that showed some of her growing bump.

Sterling looked dapper in a gray suit and a white button down shirt.

“Thank you @michaelcostello for the care free gown and @bcbgmaxazria and @betseyjohnson for the top off,” she captioned an Instagram post.

Very nice!

Our other Bumpwatch alums:

Ciara looked fabulous in draping in a bold deep orange Jean Paul Gaultier mini dress dress with expressive shoulder, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Anita Ko jewelry.

Also, Cardi B went into the show with the most nominations and walked away with the Best Female Hip Hop artist award besting her rival Cardi B, and newcomers Lizzo (who brought the house down with her performance) and uber talented Megan Thee Stallion.

Earlier in the night, she performed a cameo with her on/off again husband Offset’s song and her newest hit “Press.”

Fantasia also performed.

Cardi B, Kehlani, Beyonce Queen Moms Win at 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards

At last week’s 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel, brand new mom and singer/songwriter Kehlani walked the carpet and paid tribute to awards for songwriting.

She won an award for her work on the reigning hip hop queen Cardi B‘s song “Ring” which she is featured.

Speaking of Cardi, she got to add ASCAP Songwriter of the Year to her long list of history making awards because she is the first female rapper to receive that acknowledgment.

“I just want to say I’m very grateful,’ Cardi B began after accepting the award from ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing too much because when it comes to female rappers, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you against another female rapper. People on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy. You won a Grammy. Cardi, all your songs are charting.’

“[With] everybody saying I’m not this or that,” she continued, “sometimes I gotta see it and feel it for myself because it’s hard. Everybody always wants to say I made it because of this or made it because of that. I made it because I worked my ass off… Thank you very much, ASCAP. This is an honor for me.”

During a brief red carpet interview with Variety magazine, the songwriter-turned-singer talked about how she found out Cardi B was expecting before the “Bodak Yellow” singer had announced the news to the world and how it motivated the then-future mom.

She said: “I started as a writer, then ventured into being an artist,” she said. “It’s really important what [ASCAP] does for people, honoring them in a way they don’t normally get honored. A lot of the behind-the-scenes people get their money and they’re cool with it, but then they’re like, ‘Dang, it’d be nice sometimes to get some love really for the art of what I do.’”She also recalled a fun memory of the “Ring” video shoot. “I kind of had the idea that she [Cardi] was pregnant — but not knowing,” she remembered with a laugh. “Then seeing this cute little tiny baby bump peeking through, and taking a little woman note in my head like, ‘Congratulations, girl!’”

Another Bumpwatch alum, Beyonce, also won for co-writing “Apeshit” with her husband and Cardi’s on/off hubby Offset and his fellow Migos group member, Quavo.

Congrats to all!

MTV OGs at the MTV Movie & TV Awards Red Carpet

Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag and Jennifer Farley at MTV Movie and TV Awards

Because the MTV Movie and TV Awards are so youth centered, there weren’t that many moms rocking the red carpet.

Of course though, the MTV OGs from The Hills and Laguna Beach Audrina Patridge and newest mom Heidi Montag were there, as was the cast from the network’s Jersey Shore: The Reunion which was up for the “Reality Royalty” award like Jennifer “JWoww” Farley and others.

collage from MTV Movie and TV Awards Red Carpet 2019

My fave looks came from Jada Pinkett Smith‘s silver pant suit, Brie Larson‘s Buterfly top and pant ensemble by David Koma and Vanderpump Rules co stars Lala Kent and Stassi Schroeder in a white turtleneck and miniskirt by Magda Butrym who both looked stunning!

Shchroeder’s barely there make up looked great and the feathered boa accented her look perfectly!

Serena Williams was nominated for “Best Real Life Hero” for her work on her short HBO docu-series, Being Serena

JWoww wore a black minidress from Fashion Nova and black and white pumps. Patridge accented her black long split gown with jewels: a Liven Co snake ring, a Zoe Lev “X” ring, and silver clutch. Montag went with a vintage Gucci jumpsuit.

The Hills: New Beginnings premieres on Monday, June 24 on MTV

Bumps, Crimson and Noir at 2019 CFDA Awards

It was all about fashion and flare this year at the 2019  Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards held on Monday, June 3, at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

Third-time mom-to-be’s Jenna Bush Hager wore a crimson cape dress to the CFDA Fashion Awards that concealed her bump. She said the outfit got mixed reviews but her two daughters loved it. ††

Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Jennifer Lopez showed off her rock hard six pack in an orange custom Ralph Lauren crop top layered with 43,200 crystals and matching floor length skirt on the red carpet and on stage when she received her fashion icon award.

CFDA Chairwoman, Diane von Furstenberg said JLo was a no brainer when it came to picking her for the award.

“Jennifer Lopez uses clothes as a way to express confidence and power,” the designer said. “Both designers and fans look forward to her fashion statements.”

Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA, added, “Jennifer Lopez’s style is bold, uninhibited, and always memorable. Designers, including many of our CFDA Members, love to dress her for both stage and private moments.”

Lopez joins past recipient that include: Rihanna, Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams, and Johnny Depp.

Also, Lily Aldridge, another bumpwatch alum looked sizzling hot in a classic and elegant crimson red gown by Brandon Maxwell.

Oh and one more! Teyana Taylor in Thom Browne.

Finally, not a mom but my country mate, I am loving former CNN anchor Isha Sesay in a short fro in a look by Christopher John Rogers.

Celeb Mamas Slayed 2019’s Met Gala Pink Carpet

This year’s annual gala to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of the Arts, was more over the top than ever before.

Perhaps because the theme was “Camp”, maybe, celebrities brought extra extravagance and bold and gregarious fashion and antics.

The official theme of the Met’s 2019 was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” and celebrates the newest exhibit which is inspired by Susan Sontag‘s 1964 essay that defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.”

I think Lady Gaga might have won with her theatrics that included he unraveling and revealing of not one but four looks by designer, with the assistance of a small army of flamboyant but meticulous handlers.

Cardi B’s presentation and actor Billy Porter’s were quite spectacular and so much so, I almost forgot previous mega head turners Rihanna, Beyoncé, Madonna and third-time mom-to-be Blake Lively were conspicuously missing.

My fave looks were by women who are not yet moms (per this is a celebrity pregnancy blog so they focus is on moms)

First was singer and Endgame actress Hailee Steinfield

My second fave was Lupita Nyong’o who is stunning!

And of course, we saw lots of the celebrity moms we have featured on Bellyitch who each brought their total A game to the party and did it up right!

I am proud of myself for having the institution memory to have been able to recognize all of these beautiful moms without reading the caption to see who they are. Woot.

The 2019 Oscar Red Carpet Rundown

Congrats to all of the nominees and winners of last night’s 91st annual Academy Awards held last night at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Special recognition goes to our frequent featured mama Regina King who walked away with the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the James Baldwin adapted movie “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

She stunned in a white custom

Oscar De La Renta high split strapless gown with loose ringlets and parted hair accented with Chopard jewels.

As usual, I spotted several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums on the Red Carpet during arrivals at the opulent affair.

Spotted were: Emily Deschanel; Jennifer Lopez in a mirrored high neck Tom Ford fitted gown; Jennifer Hudson in a ruffled burnt sienna Elie Saab gown; formal model Molly Sims also in a silver gown but with sequins and a little more intricate than JLo’s with side cut outs and a long train by Zuhair Murad; Serena Williams in black with red strapless Armani Prive gown; and Tina Fey in a totally gorgeous strapless Vera Wang gown.

Also, Charlize Theron stunning in Dior Haute Couture, Kristin Cavallari; Amy Poehler looking smart in a tailored and crisp Alberta Ferretti suit; and Maya Rudolph floral regal by Giambattista Valli

Also, Kelly Ripa in Cristian Siriano and Helen Lasichanh.

My faves were all the moms in their 40s and looking fabulous:
