Celeb Moms Rock People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

 
Last night, at the People’s Choice Awards held January 8,  LIVE at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Califrornia, many of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms of the past graced the red carpet looking amazing. 
Here are those we spotted:
Jennifer Hudson stole the night with her moving speech accepting the Humanitarian award for a charity she founded after her mother, brother and nephew were gunned down in Chicago. Before that moment, she wowed in a white fitted Kaufmanfranco dress from the Spring 2014 line and some cute sandals with perfected understated matted lips. It matched well with her new pixie cut and bronzed eye shadow. Perfect!

Britney Spears was a big winner last night, walking away with a Favorite Female Performer, Favorite Pop Singer and Fan Music Favorite awards. She looked sizzling hot in a nude with black embroidered accent Mikael D dress from the designers’ Fall 2013 line

Malin Akerman was showing off the girls in a Cushnie Et Ochs Spring 2014 dress with an interesting window peephole front in the bodice. Not feeling it much. But the mary janes on her feet are rocking. 

Heidi Klum did it again in another over-the-top look this time by Giorgio Armani from his Fall 2013 collection. She went with Christian Louboutin heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. No comment.

Anna Faris looked absolutely stunning in a fitted sheer nude  floor-length Naeem Khan top and skirt set. She walked the carpet with hubby Chris Pratt.



Jessica Alba did Winter White as well in a fitted Jason Wu bandage dress with gold accents and white Casadei pumps with Jennifer Meyer jewels. She definitely was on the best dressed list this round.

Sarah Michelle Gellar donned a Sachin + Babi dress which looked elegant though looked a bit too matronly for the youngish actress. Similarly the Jimmy Choo heels were safe and a bit underwelming. She accented the black and white ensemble with Neil Lane jewels.

Sandra Bullock looked amazing in a  Peter Pilotto Resort 2014 embroidered overlay dress. The parted hair was a winner and her neutral makeup flawless. Gawgeous, Sandy!

Emily Deschanel in a BCBGMAXAZRIA dress accented by Miss Delicious shoes,  House of Lavande earrings, Swarovski ring and an Edie Parke clutch.  Cute. Can we have the shoes?

Melissa Joan Hart’s hair, make up looked gorgeous. The Swarvoski earrings were on point, matched with an Oroton clutch. She’s catching flak today for her strapless asymmetrical El Lay dress which isn’t really bad at all. It’s colorful and stands out, works with her shape and has people talking.  Last fall, she released a book Melissa Explains it All” which detailed heavy drug use and random hook-ups with celeb co-stars. Oh my! These Disney stars boy!
Mom to be  Drew Barrymore won a Spring 2014 Vionnet  dress which lacked shape and had her lookgin boxy. Barrymore joked on stage, while giving out the award for Favorite Comedic movie, about Ellen DeGeneres calling her fat as a joke. Barrymore is expecting her second child with hubby Will Kopelman.

Did Beyonce’s Halloween Lil Kim Tribute Aim to Squash Last Year’s Fan Feud?

So Last July, biz mogul and rapper Sean “P Diddy” Combs sent the fans of Beyonce and Lil Kim into battle when he ended a tribute to Lil Kim on the Hip Hop Honors award show by stating, “Your hardcore raps, the way you walk, the way you talk — there’s only one Queen Bee. All hail the queen!”

That comment sent the Bey Hive fans into a tizzy as Diddy’s own Revolt TV conveniently blogged about after the event.

Perhaps to squelch all of the feuding between camps of fans of Queen Bey (also pronounced liked “bee”) with Beyhive members sparring with Lil Kim’s own Killer Bee Hive, the new mom-to-three set the record straight herself by posting her tribute to Lil Kim on her personal Tumblr website.

The first image in a series read “Hip Hop Would Not Be the Same Without Our Original Queen Bee”. It was part of the “Single Ladies” singer’s tribute titled “Halloween 2017: Lil’ Kim Appreciation.

We followed both women during their respective pregnancies on this blog so we can definitely appreciate the sister love!!!

We had already featured earlier this week Beyonce pulling off Kim’s costume back when the pint-sized rapper was featured in Missy Elliot’s “The Rain” video.

In Bey’s November 3rd blog post, we see that Mrs. Carter went one step further and further and further…knocking it all the way out the ball park!

And the original Queen Bee herself loved it, sharing them all on her personal Twitter page:



Here are the comparison looks in this video collage in Harper’s Bazaar feature:

From Left to Right:

a) From Lil Kim’s feature in Manhattan File magazine in 2001

b) From Lil Kim during her “No Way Out Tour” in 1997.

c) From Lil Kim from Today’s Black Woman magazine feature in 2000 taken by Michael Thompson

d) From Lil Kim attending the The Source magazine’s Hip Hop Awards in 1999.

e) From Lil Kim’s feature in Missy Elliot‘s “The Rain” music video

Here’s what Lil Kim had to say about the feature:

“I’m still recovering from @beyonce’s slayage from Halloween and then this happens… #beyonce #lilkim #queenbee #tookusabreak #beehive #lilkimseason,” Lil’ Kim shared on Instagram after the Grammy winner shared new photos of her costumes. “Lawwwwddddd, my wig is all the way in China!!! SLAYED. You did that B!”

She continued, “Come all the way thru Bey!! @beyonce the resemblance is crazy!! Match made in heaven. Every single detail is on point! I love you to pieces Bey.”

For the final share, Lil Kim shared her appreciation for Jay who dressed in Biggie Smalls a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G.’s signature red jacket, jeans and Timberland boots from an already widely circulated photo taken at Kelly Rowland’s Halloween party this year.

“This is so adorable and it’s even cuter because Jay-Z and Biggie were friends and he has his mannerisms down pat,” she shared. “I love U Queen Bey and King Jay.”

Beyonce wasn’t the only one to do multiple Halloween costumes paying homage to one person. I actually went as Beyonce’s 2011 video for “Countdown” (WATCH IT HERE) when she was 6 months pregnant with her first child, Blue Ivy. This tribute is fitting given I have a pregnancy blog. I couldn’t decide on which of the two dozen or so outfit/looks she wore in that video so I settled on four.

Unlike Bey, who probably wore her get ups to various Halloween parties and events, I simply rummaged my and my husband and kids’ closets and came up with outfits and used wigs I already own. I photographed myself via selfies or my iPhone’s timer app after the kids had come back from trick-or-treating and had settled in bed. I did do them all on Halloween so they count as Halloween costumes nonetheless! ha!

Did You Know Beyonce Invented the Non-Verbal Red Carpet Pregnancy Reveal?

beyonce-red-carpet

Speaking of Beyonce being pregnant, did you know that she pioneered the red carpet celebrity pregnancy announcement?

From covering celebrity pregnancy for close to 10 years, I have institutional memory in this area. Bellyitch was one of the first site’s to declare that the “bump watch” origin was Demi Moore’s iconic August 1991 Vanity Fair cover.  Since then, others have accepted that assessment.

A little while ago, I noticed that after Beyonce famously announced her pregnancy by cupping her belly on the red carpet of the 2011 MTV Music Awards, other celebrities have chosen to quietly let the world know they are expecting using that non-verbal gesture.

Of course, she is not the first one to break pregnancy news while talking to entertainment reporters on the chain line, but since she did it, Marion Cotillard, Gwen Stefani, Amber Rose, Kerry Washington, and others chose to confirm rumors and let the world know they were expecting on the red carpet.

I welcome anyone who will prove to me otherwise. Hit me up on Twitter or Instagram or Facebook @Bellyitch! 🙂

Fashion Support: When Celeb Moms Wear Other Celeb Moms

celeb moms

I think it’s cool when I see our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums supporting one another by wearing each other’s designs. Like this week, Jennifer Lopez was taking a break from her Vegas show and spotted in a Stella McCartney cotton sleeveless Lion Shirt and a pair of Victoria Beckham classic aviator shades.

Both McCartney and Beckham were featured prominently on the blog when they were expecting their respective last bundle of joy!

JLo paired the top with dark denim, while toting a Christian Loubotin Paloma leather tote with leopard print sides… and look, are those Converse sneakers, Chuck Taylors to be precise? (What do you think? Ping me and let me know.)

With all this talk about the mom hair and mom jeans, Converse trainers may be the new “mom tennis shoe” after all. (Smile)

I watched the red carpet arrivals to last night’s annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner  held at the Washington Hilton in Washingtonl DC and I spotted several of the celebrity women we’ve spotlighted on the blog before.

She attended the event this year in a black one shoulder dress with ruffles at the trim made by another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Victoria Beckham with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels, accented with Neil Lane jewelry.
