Yellow, Gold and Celestial Beings at Met Ball 2018 Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

So the annual fundraising gala to mark the opening of the new Spring exhibit at The Metropolitan Gallery of Art in New York City went down last night.

As with this event every years, guests are asked to come dressed according to the theme of the new exhibit: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination. This year’s official hosts were Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Amal Clooney (above in Richard Quinn) and Donatella Versace (who dressed a lot of the attendees this year)

With a theme like that not only do you expect some backlash at what could be expected as a parade of sacrilegiousness, but you sorely expect some interpretations of Angels, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Cardinals! They all were there last night too.

We just cover the moms and other celeb women we have frequently covered starting with two moms-to-be:  Homeland star Claire Danes who is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy and rapper and reality TV star Cardi B who is expecting her first child with her fiance rapper Offset.

Danes wore a custom floor-length empire waist Marni precious duchesse  red, magenta and caramel color block gown paired with Marni Monile handbag  and multicolour platform sandals.

Cardi looked regal in a custom golden bejeweled white Moschino gown. She was accompanied to the event by designer Jeremy Scott though her fiancé was there with the other two members of his group, Migos.

Of our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, we noticed a few trends within the theme.

Gold was one. Kerry Washington in a gorgeous floor-length Ralph Lauren dress with her afro serving as a halo! Evan Rachel Wood, Kim Kardashian-West in Versace and Irina Shayk.

We saw structure, ornateness and royal crimson in Solange‘s Iris Van Harper ensemble, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez‘s spectacular Balmain modern take on Joan of Arc and Scarlett Johanssson

Yellow was a prevalent theme and color and everyone wearing it last night looked stunning including Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren, Huma Abedin and Gabrielle Union in Prabal Gurung dress, Tasaki jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Anne Hathaway went with volume in her  Valentino gown which she paired did James Banks earrings, a The Code bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.

Meanwhile, Gisele Bundchen did old Hollywood glam but in an environmentally friendly way by working with Versacd to repurpose an old dress.

“Thank you @versace for working so hard to make me an eco dress. The fabric and lining used are both 100% organic silk ecologically dyed, the threads are 100% organic cotton and everything is certificated as GOTS: Global Organic Textile Standard,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress before heading out to the ball.

Kylie Jenner made her first official official red carpet appearance in a black velvet Alexander Wang gown with Chopard jewelry with her beau rapper Travis Scott since the two welcomed their first child together, daughter Storming

Uma Thurman was accompanied to the event by Maya Hawke, her daughter with Ex Ethan Hawke and  donned a white Gabriela Hearst dress, Giampiero Bodino jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Most people played it safe but understandingly so because they probably didn’t want to cross the line and have to dodge lightning bolts! ha!

#NYFW: Celeb Moministas at New York Fashion Week So Far (PHOTOS)

 

New York Fashion Week is under way! The annual event features runway shows from designers showing off their Spring/Summer 2018 collections at various locations around the city.

For the uninitiated, it’s a big deal to be assigned a front row seat as those few select spots are reserved for A-List fashion editors a and buyers, celebs and upper echelon socialites.

We spotted a few of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums on front rows in quite a few of the early shows. Second-time mom-to-be Nic ky Hilton was spotted with her sister Paris posed at the red carpet to the Harper’s BAZAAR Celebration of “ICONS By Caribbean Roitfeld” at The Plaza Hotel presented by Infor, Laura Mercier, Stella Artois, FUJIFILM and SWAROVSKI on September 8, 2017 in New York City.

Ciara attended too looking regal in Rasario Pre-Fall 2017 dress and coat and her good pal Kim Kardashian-West stunned in a silver Versace off the shoulder gown.

The two friends met up again earlier in the week at the Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2018 Runway Show at Park Avenue Armory on September 6, 2017.

 

Past features who are models naturally made appearances and walked in shows. Lily Aldridge walked in Jason Wu’s show and attended his dinner introducing his first fragrance along side Jaime King, another one of our alums.

Alridge also attended Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown on September 8, 2017 which Kim Kardashian-West also attended with her sister, model Kendall Jenner.

Christina Ricci attended the Calvin Klein Collection fashion show on September 7, 2017.

Model Irina Shayk Announced Pregnancy at Victoria Secret Catwalk

irina-shayk

Russian model Irina Shayk is reportedly in her second trimester of pregnancy with her and actor beau Bradley Cooper‘s first child together.

The gorgeous and leggy brunette walked the Victoria Secret Fashion Show on November 30, 2016 in Paris, France in a red fringe cover revealing her new pregnancy boobs. She later changed into another outfit that involved a trench coat, thigh high patent leather boots and plenty more cleavage.

The second outfit totally showed off her round tummy and was an unofficial announcement. Brazilian models Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge were both pregnant in 2011 when they both walked the show.

Models bounce back pretty quickly as was shown by Heidi Klum who walked that show in 2009 about 5 -weeks after giving birth, and Lima, 8 weeks after she gave birth.

After the event, which took place at the Grand Palais in Paris, she attended after parties in a striped negligee like dress that was a little more concealing  but still revealed a bulbous tummy.

Congrats!

I’ve been keeping a file of my favorite Halloween costumes I’ve encountered while online this past weekend and today. I will post them there here periodically and credit where and if I can because you know viral images are sometimes hard to trace back to the originator.

Anyway, enjoy!

Co-Existing: Breastfeeding, Motherhood and Glam Squads

celebrity glam squad breastfeeding

In Hollywood (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.
Motherhood isn’t halting opportunities and production can and do work around a star’s pregnancy. In recent years, many celebrity parents are showing their social media fans that they don’t let motherhood interfere with their work either. They can do both.
Gisele Bundchen‘s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and glamity aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially.

But they can co-exist and since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like Lily Aldridge, Molly Sims, Kim Kardashian, Ali Larter, Terri Seymour and most recently, Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.

Perfect and just in  time to update last year’s list of celebrity glam squads.  Last year, I hunted down the various glam squad photos celebs have posted on Instagram, WhoSay and Twitter. This small team that help get a celeb woman ready for an event, award show or other red carpet moment consist usually of a hairstylist, a manicurist, a stylist, a make-up artist and a personal assistant. They work in tandem and sometimes simultaneously and the glam squad photo shows them in action.

Of course, most of the glam squad photos are staged. Let’s be real. I wouldn’t want to be having my hair hot curled while my head is being maneuvered and shifted by the make up artist.  Ouch. I’ve had a curling iron dropped on me before and I have the scar still to prove it.

Also, showing off your glam squad is another way of telling your followers and fans that you are that special that you can’t get dressed on your own.  This is not shade. I’d hire myself a team in a hot second!  And you know this because even famous stylists who once were glam squad members are now celebrities in their own right. (think June Ambrose and Rachel Zoe)

These days, you can even rent one.  Companies like Miami-based GlamSquad (pictured above) will bring a team to you starting at $75. Not bad!

Last fall, Her Campus ranked some of the squad members of the biggest celebrities whose work we see on the faces and hair of influential women.

Here are some of the glam squads we’ve seen posted on social media recently.

2015 VMA Awards Red Carpet & Show Roundup

vma 2015 fashion bellyitchblog.com

 

Tonight was another celeb-studded musical event at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums graced the red carpet before the event, took the stage and were nominated for quite a few awards.

Mega star Beyonce Knowles Carter was a no show even though she was nominated for 5 awards for her “7/11” Video (Best Female, Pop, Editing, Choreography, Video of the Year). She won only one for Best Editing.

Jennifer Hudson couldn’t make it either despite being up for the Best Video with a social message award for her song, “I Still Love You.”

On the red carpet, model Lily Aldridge stunned in a black Alexandre Vauthier couture gown with a plunging neckline, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Jen Meyer Jewelry earrings, Anita Ko bracelets, and an Edie Parker clutch.

Britney Spears showed mucho cleavage in a showgirls-esque gold sequined number with cutouts in the tummy.

Kim Kardashian West covered her bump in a long sleeve draped military style dress.

Her sis Kourtney Kardashian was giving up the sexy in a hot pink jumpsuit, fresh off of winning our 2015 Posh Mom Icon award.

Their family’s arch nemeses Amber Rose and Blac Chyna came dressed in matching nude outfits with cartoon caricture lettering featuring all the insulting names that people have called the duo who are headed for an MTV reality TV show this fall.

The show wasn’t without its dramatic moments, of course, including some toxic exchanges between show host Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj who won the Best Rap Video Award for video for “Anaconda“. It was the same video Minaj suggested was deserving for being up for the Video of the Year Award but was slighted because she felt the women featured in the video weren’t thin.  Taylor Swift assumed it was a slam against her given all the women in her Bad Blood video were pretty much rail thin and the two had a brief Twitter beef which reeled their fans in on it and was more or less squashed until Cyrus added her two cents during a promo appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cyrus said Minaj was “not nice”.  The rest is history and can be seen on Twitter but since we’re about promoting positivity by and among women, we’ll leave it at that.

Ciara showed off a new bob in a fringed black outfit and Law and Order‘s Mariska Hargitay made an appearance in all black while walking with the other members of “The #SwiftSquad” from Taylor Swift‘s “Video of the Year” winning video “Bad Blood.”

Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums in Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ VIDEO

bad blood bellyitchblog.com

I know I am making a late pass, but I just watched Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” video which was nominated for a 2015 MTV Video of the Year.

I immediately noticed all the cameos from some pretty kick ass pop stars, models and even some iconic figures sprinkled throughout the futuristic set Joseph Kahn-directed mini-movie.

Standing out to me also was all of the Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums and moms we’ve featured in the past: Lily Aldridge, Jessica Alba, Ellen Pompeo and Mariska Hartigay

bad blood debut

Swift debuted the video at this year’s Billboard Music Awards in May, along with some of the co-stars.

Aldridge was “Frostbyte” and engaged in an epic training battle with Swift’s character, “Catastrophe“, while Alba, as “Domino”, rode along with her on bad-a*ss souped up motorcycles as “Justice“, played by Hargitay and “Luna”, as portrayed by Pompeo, seemingly were senior members of the coven who okay’d the battle with her former partner turned nemesis “Arsyn,” played by Selena Gomez.

It could sound confusing if you haven’t seen it so here ya go: Check it out:

2015 Billboard Music Awards Recap – Bellyitch style!

Tonight was the 2015 Billboard Music Awards which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It was a star-studded event. As usual, the celeb women we’ve featured on Bellyitch in the past rocked the red carpet: Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez in Charbel Zoe, Taraji P. Henson, Britney Spears, Idina Menzel and Danica McKellar all looked stunning.
As did model Lily Aldridge who is married to Kings of Leon band member Caleb Followill.
Britney Spears made a triumphant return to the Billboards stage performing her hit song with Iggy Azalea, “Pretty Girls”. WATCH



Maria Carey took us back in time with a glorious performance of her classic song “Vision of Love” and finished up with her latest single, “Infinity.”
