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.

Celebrities and their Glam Squads (PHOTOS)

One of the ways celebrities remind us that they have it way better than us is by showing off their elaborate glam squads in social media.
It’s not necessarily a new concept to see a photo of hairstylist, manicurist, stylist, make up artist and personal assistant all tending to a celebrity woman at the same time. It’s a common shot in glamour, hair  and style magazines. 
Now with social media, celebs get to set up staged photos and give us a glimpse of their glam squad in action. 
But it is also a great excuse and opportunity for them to tag or “@” mention the glam professionals and help promote their business and help get them more clients as well. Hence why some celebrity stylists and make up artists have become celebrities themselves over time (see June Ambrose, Rachel Zoe and the guys from the Real Housewives of Atlanta)
Some enterprising salons have seized on the interest of regular women wanting the celebrity treatment and offer traveling  glam squads. 

Companies like Miami-based GlamSquad (pictured above) will bring a team to you starting at $75. Not bad! 

Here are a few celeb glam squad pics we’ve seen shared by our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums and others personalities.

Bellyitch BumpWatch alums in Victoria Secret Fashion Show

Three of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums walked in the 2014 Victoria Secret Annual Fashion Show, this year held at Earls in London, England last week.
Even though we missed seeing one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Miranda Kerr who has “graduated” from the event, Lily Aldridge graced the stage as did Brazilian beauties Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima


Ambrosio and Lima are rumored to have walked for the last time this year as well. 


These ladies are getting so hot and sought after that I’m sure their asking price to rip the runway is getting up there. 


Ha! More room and time for Aldridge, who is married to the lead Caleb Followill  singer in one of my favorite bands Kings of Leon. 


All looked svelte and saucy in their body-hugging outfits they each wore to the show’s after party. Check out some of the pics:

2014 CMA Red Carpet: Best Celeb Mom Looks

So the Country Music Association‘s 48th Annual CMA Awards went down last night, November 5th at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. 
I was elated to see all the hot looks of the celebrity moms featured in Bellyitch Blog in the past and smiled warmly at all the big hair tromping the red carpet. 

I’m 50/50 on the looks.

Show co-host along with Brad Paisley and first time mom-to-be Carrie Underwood went with a custom beaded gold gown by Lorena Sarbu which totally covered her bump.

Meh. The mesh bodice top and the appliques looking embellishments dated the youthful former American Idol winner. I did love her Jimmy Choo Amika pumps. Get them HERE!

Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum went va va voom and nautical in this body hugging Herve Leger  dress with gold accents, paired with Michael John jewelry and a gold Reece Hudson clutch. Mama is snatched and cinched and looking quite glam. Love it. I would’ve loved to see her hair up to really show off the halter attachment in the front, but then again, it really wasn’t needed and is a distraction to the an already busy bodice.

When she’s not presenting an award, the gorgeous Brazilian model Lily Aldridge was showing off her svelte figure in beautiful Calvin Klein  dress with tulle sheer panel cut outs at the sides, sleeves and bodice that made this little number super sexy.

 

 I loved Nicole Kidman‘s look here although I read some call it matronly. It is sexy but not too revealing and very age appropriate. This Roberto Cavalli dress is feminine and soft and is ornate but in a less gaudy way as we’ve seen in some Cavalli styles. The loose ringlets top off this look accented with Fred Leighton jewels. Love it!
Bravo, ladies!

2014 Met Ball Red Carpet Trends as worn by celebrity moms

Among the A-List celebs strutting their looks on the red carpet to this year’s Met Ball were several of our Bellyitch alum moms last night, May 5.
There was a departure from the traditional avante garde fair this year given the theme “Charles James: Beyond Fashion”, named after the newest exhibit at the museum. It allowed the ladies to do old Hollywood glam, which is safer and more feminine for the annual gala put on by the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and produced by Vogue editor-in-chief Ana Wintour.


The actual exhibit featured vintage old and recent Hollywood red carpet and other formal evening dresses worn by major US and international stars. 
We saw some trends starting with the traditional trains, as spotted on Beyonce in a Givenchy dress and shoes adorned with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry; and on Charlize Theron in a black and white Dior dress worn with Fred Leighton jewels.

Actress Lake Bell held it down for the pregnant ladies in Tomy Hillfiger while Ivanka Trump did an earthy pattern in Oscar de la Renta.

Event co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker also wore Oscar de la Renta in a black and white ball gown while Victoria Beckham went as herself, in a sleek strapless Victoria Beckham evening dress.

Dark colors were seen on Marion Cotilliard in Christian Dior and Kim Kardashian in a sateen teal Lanvin evening dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
 
Metallic and Silver were worn by singer Lily Allen in Chanel Couture, model Lily Aldridge in Michael Kors and Nicole Richie in Donna Karan Atalier

Going with bold color was Katie Holmes in a full sunny gown by  Marchesa and Reese Witherspoon looking polished and pretty in Stella McCartney.

12 Times Celebrity Moms Posed ‘Glam Squad While Momming’ Photos in Social Media

img_6918

Alas, it looks like it now officially a must-do trendy thing for working moms in Hollywood to do: Pose for the official “momming while being serviced by a glam squad” photo.

And…look, Avatar 2 star Zoe Saldana is the latest to join the club!

 

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress posted a photo on her Instagram account of her tending to her infant son, Zen, while getting primped and polished for some red carpet event, perhaps.  “You do what you have to do to be there….  #workingmom” she captioned the photo in both English and her native Spanish.

Before Saldana did it, the likes of Audra McDonald, Molly Sims, Miranda Kerr, P!nk, Terri Seymour, Ali Landry, Alyssa Milano, and Jessie James Decker have all share social media photos of themselves in the throws of dolling up as a working mom in Hollywood.

728x90-1
Gisele Bundchen may have been the unofficial mother  of this genre of photos. When she did it in 2013, the Victoria Secret model she caught a lot of flak for those who said she was being vain and using motherhood to call attention to herself — not just her then-one-year old daughter Vivian Lake.

giseleb

The Brazilian Supermodel’s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and “glamity” aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially. Aaaah humbug!





Shameless actress Emily Rossum joined in the fun of criticizing Bundchen by posting a parody of Bundchen’s photos by copying it to a tee using a doll. Okay, Emily. Sure.

img_6916

But we are able to recognized the value to the image despite what the critics say. In the past, in tinsel town  (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.

As we’ve shared before, 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.

Again, since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like LilyAldridge, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.

Here are photos of 12 times when
