22 Sexy & Fashionable Virgo Celebs 

 Early Adopter

As this month is a fashionable one with all the various designers unveiling their Spring 2016 and Fall 2015 collections on runways at various cities’ respective Fashion Weeks, and it being Virgo season, I thought I would highlight all the fashionable celebrity moms and designers we’ve covered in Bellyitch over the years.

Tom Ford also infamously said, “You know, the world might be a very scary place if it were only run by Virgos.” True, but every organization needs a Virgo in it to keep it running smoothly. So does the world!

ha!

I admit I am biased given my birthday was on September 6 and I myself am a proud Virgo and share a birthday with at least one spouse of a Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum  and the sign with other alums (above) including the Queen Bee Beyonce (Sept. 4), Country singer Jennifer Nettles, (Sept. 12), TV host and former model Padma Lakshmi (Sept. 1) , Songstress P!nk (Sept. 8) and powerhouse singer and actress Jennifer Hudson (Sept. 12).



Our Virgo Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who are actual designers include Stella McCartney (Sept. 13), Nicole Richie (Sept. 21), and Rachel Zoe (Sept.1)


Male Fashion Icons and Designers I love and admire (either for their fashion sense, work ethic or a combo of both) include: my birthday mate and alum Idris Elba (Sept. 6), Tom Ford (Aug. 27), Karl Lagerfeld (Sept. 10); and guys whose S.O. we recently covered Wiz Khalifa, ex to Amber Rose (Sept. 8) and Evan Ross, spouse to Ashlee Simpson (Aug. 26).

Young and/other influential in-demand Fashionable women I enjoy seeing dressed up as fashion muses for several designers: Taraji P. Henson (Sept. 11), KeKe Palmer (Aug. 26), Misty Copeland (Sept. 10), Zendaya Coleman (Sept 1) and Angela Simmons (Sept 18).


Finally, fashion forward and super sexy Salma Hayek (Setp. 2), Jada Pinkett Smith (Sept 18) and Sanaa Lathen (Sept. 19) also rock the Virgo Virgin sign well.



And of course Ludacris (Sept 14), rounding up for pops of recent alum Eudoxie.

Happy Birthday, Virgos!

The View Mixes up New Season Cast w/plenty Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums

the view news

After a very bumpy and rocky Season 18, the ABC round table daytime talk show The View returns  for Season 19 this September with several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums in signature positions.

Full House  star Candace Cameron Bure, who will reprieve her role as DJ Tanner in a much-anticipated Netflix b revival of the 90s show, will be one of the main panelists.

She will join a returning Joy Behar along with cast regular Whoopie Goldberg, Michelle Collins, and Raven-Symone and another new member Paula Faris of ABC News.

Other Bumpwatch alums include former host Sherri Shepherd, Top Chef’Padma Lakshmi and actress model Molly Sims, who will fill in occasionally as a rotating team of contributors. Also rotating will be What Not to Wear vet host Stacy London, Republican strategist Ana Navarro.

What a diverse cast!

Season 18 cast members Jenny McCarthy, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace never lasted the entire season either because they left or was asked to leave (McCarthy).

Celebrity Couples whose Union Didn’t Survive Their Baby’s First Birthdays

bellyitcblog.com spli up

US Weekly reports that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have split after 11 years together.

It is the latest in a slate of high-profile celeb break ups this summer including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Break ups are sad and we’ve notice that in the 7 years that Bellyitch Blog has been in existence, a substantial amount of celebrity women who we have had on our “bumpwatch” list have broken up with their respective significant others.

Some broke up before the baby was even born: Christina Milian, Kelis, Heidi Klum and January Jones,and many more split with their respective hubby/baby daddies before they even gave birth.

Last year, CiaraEva Marcille (nee Pigford),  and Amber Rose split with their partners before each of  their baby’s turned 6 months old. The separations have been messy, still.  A few years ago, Selma Blair and her ex Jason Bleick split up 14 months after welcoming their first child together.

Others we’ve covered who have called it quits include: The Jamie Foxx show actress Garcelle Beauvais, TV host Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Freeman from My Wife and Kids, Lauryn Hill, Kimora Lee Simmons (Djimon Hounsou days), Hilary Duff, Fantasia, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, Kate Hudson, Jamie Lyn Spears, Lauren London, Monyetta Shaw (NeYo’s ex), Golden Brooks from “Girlfriends”.

At this point, it’s probably safer to start chronicling those who are still together because they are the new exception, not the rule in Hollywood, it seems. But hey, so long as everyone is happier and better off apart and the off-springs are co-parented well with little to minimum drama, right?

No judgment from us, okay. We’re  just pointing out the trends and facts. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts! (*smirk*)

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!
