Celeb Maternity Styling: How to wear stripes while pregnant

Pulling off stripes while pregnant is not easy to do. But many celebs we’ve featured in the past have done it and looked fashionable, such as currently pregnant Vanessa Lachey when she was expecting her first child.
To make it work, go with thinner stripes to take away from the widening illusion of wide stripes. Also, break up the lines with a belt tied above the belly and below the breastbone. 
Another trick to distract from the girth is to carry a handbag across the chest like a messenger bag.
Accent the look with neutral sandals, wedges, shades and jewelry accessories and you’ve got a trendy summer look that will turn heads!

Using a style sheet from Prep101, here are some additional styling suggestions and inspiration in moderate price points:

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.

Easter Maternity Fashion: Get inspiration from these celeb moms

If you are currently preggers and planning what to wear to church this Easter, here are some Throwback Thursday pics of celebrities who looked fashionable and delightful in dresses that would be suitable for Easter Brunch, an Easter Egg Roll or an Easter Brunch. 



Go casual in a flowy maxi dress under a denim jacket like Kristin Cavallari did during her first pregnancy with son Camden jack two years ago or a billowy-sleeved Bohemian top under cropped pants like what  Korean actress Kim Hee-sun wore during a GAP maternity campaign in 2009. Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie also dressed up and down the maxi dress and you can too.

If you’re looking to look more formal, go with bold and pastel colors or cream mid-length dresses like how Kate Hudson, Christina Applegate,  Jolie, Gwen Stefani and Reese Witherspoon during their respective last pregnancy.
Happy Easter!

Drew Barrymore hosts backyard baby shower

Mom-to-be for a second time Drew Barrymore had a star-studded baby shower at her Hollywood Hills home this weekend, US Weekly reports. 

Guests attending the April 12th backyard event include Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon. It was reportedly a coed shower as her Barrymore’s husband Will Kopelman attended along with other family and friends of both gender. 
The two are parents to one year old Olive. 
The fact that there are no social media pics of the event means either some outlet has exclusive photos that will be shared later or simply she asked guests to respect her privacy and not blast pics out for the world to see. Either way, cool. 
We love us some Drew!

Moms rocking the “red carpet” at the Film Independent Spirit Awards

Celeb moms rocked the Film Independent’s Spirit Awards yesterday, March 1 at Santa Monica Beach, California. The show is the first to recognize the best among the best in independent films produced, created and distributed without  major studio backing.
Relatively new Bellytich Bumpwatch mom Kristen Bell looks to have totally bounced back to pre-pregnancy shape as she showed off a very svelte figure in a cobalt blue strapless Reem Acra dress from fall 2014 with black embroidered lace trim detailed on the side. She polished the look in Christian Louboutin sandals and her wrist blinged with a Piaget watch. Lovely!
Paula Patton looks happy and radiant without her husband Robin Thicke who has professed plans to try to win her back despite her plans to separate from him after over a decade of a relationship and marriage. The Mission Impossible actress showed off some legs in a bright yellow Lorena Sarbu lace mini dress accented with Anito Ko jewels and Christian Louboutin heels. 
So my goal for 2014 is to look as gawgeous as Camila Alves McConaughey  did in that white Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit, David Webb earrings and nude Loubotin pumps. Gotta make it happen.  Her husband is up for Best Actor tonight at the Academy Awards for his amazing work in Dallas Buyers’ Club.
We loved her candid autobiography about pregnancy in Hollywood and we really really love this bright tangerine Maria Lucia Hohan chiffon dress with the deep plunging neckline and exposed sides that American Hustler actress Elisabetth Rohm wore. The Antonini  jewels made it extra special but um tone down on the tanning spray.
Also doing bright orange was Hollywood veteran and American Horror Story actress Angela Bassett who looked amazing in this figure hugging pencil length number. Hawtness for Dayzzzzzz!
Reese Witherspoon went brave in super short mini ensemble with lace overlay but overdid the matching with the shoes and handbag and then lost points too with a shapeless bodice. oh. next time.
Finally, Sarah Michelle Gellar breezed past red carpet in a flow yellow and black top over black tights and pumps. Her body was banging and the short haircut gorgeous! Looking good mama! 
Conclusion: Our moms know how to be MILFs. They really do!

Ivanka and Chelsea: Two Pregnant Women are Stumping for their Parent to become the Next US President

trump hillary

Two pregnant women are stumping for their respective parent to become the next President of the United States.

Ivanka Trump, who is expecting her third child this year with husband Jared Kushner, is seen on a relatively recent campaign ad for her dad Donald J. Trump, who is vying for the Republican nomination.

On the Democratic side, former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton with second baby in tow in her tummy, has been a surrogate on talk shows and campaign events for her mom Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Chelsea and her husband, Melvin Mezvinsky are parents to 1-year daughter Charlotte. Ivanka and Jared are parents to 4-year old Arabella and 2-year old Joseph.

No one better say pregnant women can’t do it all. These two are incubating a human while being a formidable campaign fundraising force.

Bravo ladies! Look at them at work:
