2015 BET Awards Red Carpet: What & Who Our Star Moms Wore

2015 bet awards

We loved the interesting selections our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums wore on the red carpet last night at the 2015 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater  in Los Angeles, California. As usual, we’re doing our rundown on the designers who outfitted the ladies who walked the red carpet.

Kelly Rowland rocked a black asymmetric feathered mini frock by Lever Couture which featured a mock turtleneck and billowy sleeve cascading from the sleeves with slick back hair. It was a daring and bold move.


Amber Rose came hand in hand with her BFF Blac Chyna, both Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums. Each wore matching white suits and bustiers from lingerie designer La Perla. They even shared a kiss on the red carpet to celebrate the US Supreme Court’s decision which opened the door for gay couples in all states to marry.


Christina Milian also arrived in white. The reality TV star, actress and singer came decked out in a jeweled halter jumpsuit made by Erevos Aether and paired with Ruby Stella jewels and Jimmy Choo sandals. Cayooot!


Ciara made another fab choice by arriving in a plunging neckline Wes Gordon sheer dress made of embroidered metal, accented with minimal jewels and Stuart Weitzan pumps. She arrived with her new beau NFL Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.


Brandy went with her signature mini dress with a flare in this grey and black Michael Costello color block dress with pink pumps. Love the hair!


Monica  looked regal in this flowing Stéphane Rolland Couture cape gown. Simply Stunning!

REVIEW: Celeb favorite SoftBaby is Organic softness for baby

About 5 years ago, we featured organic onesies in our weekly Eco Friday posts for the edification of our Eco-conscious parents who are interested in earth-friendly products. The benefit of organic clothing for babies is that they are gentler to the sensitive skin of newborns and infants that are prone to allergic reactions from clothing.  Outfitting them in clothes made of organic material such as organic cotton may lessen the chances of their skin becoming irritated from harmful pesticides and other irritants found in non-organic materials. 
We got a chance to check out a relatively new organic baby clothing company called SoftBaby, which, according to the designer line, is loved by celeb moms Hayden Panettiere, Drew Barrymore and Ciara.

Here is a review from Bellyitch Reader Reviewer Chelsea who sampled a romper on her gorgeous 8-month old son Michael. Here is her review:
  • Fit – The first question when buying baby

    clothes is does it fit? Great fit is key. Depending on the manufacturer, new

    parents often finding themselves upsizing or downsizing based on the clothing’s

    label to find the right fit for their baby. SoftBaby’s romper was a great fit

    with no age guessing game. My 8 month old fit the 6-9 romper perfectly. There

    was even some room for him to continue to grow.
  • Design and Texture – I loved SoftBaby’s design.

    The unbleached organic cotton with yellow orange deer prints was adorable. The

    romper would be a great baby shower unisex gift to give. Additionally, the

    organic cotton was truly as soft as if it was picked directly from the field.

    The thickness was a summer cotton and it made me wonder if SoftBaby was

    considering having a winter cotton line of clothing as well.
  • Function – 

    Call it the “Great Soft Baby Crawling Suit.”  The cotton moved freely with the baby as he speed

    crawled around the house. Definitely no creasing, stretching or cotton

    stiffness. The down side came when it was time to change Michael’s diaper. The

    romper only had front snaps and no diaper snaps. The front snaps were a bit

    stiff which made me worry that I may tear the fabric. And with no diaper snaps,

    changing Michael required aerobatics on his part and for me to take the romper

    almost off of him.
  • Overall: I would buy

    the romper for myself or as a baby shower gift.

Good thing! Check out Softbaby which sells blankets, bloomers, rompers and bodysuits, starting at $40.

2105 Grammy Award Red Carpet Fashion (PHOTOS)

Tonight was the 57th Annual Grammy Awards held at STAPLES Center on February 8, 2015 in Los Angeles.

And as usual, we spotted many of the celebrity mothers we’ve written about on Bellyitch in the past on the red carpet.

Congratulations to Beyonce (Best R&B Performance & Song)  Erica Campbell (Best Gospel), Carrie Underwood (Best Country), Christina Aguilera  (Best Pop Duo/Group) and Toni Braxton (Best R&B album) who all won awards tonight.

Here is what they wore (will update with more specifics later):

Congratulations to Beyonce in a laced with jewel overlay Proenza Schouler dress for winning the award for the best R&B Performance and Best R&B  Song for “Drunk in Love” tonight, and being the most nominated woman in Grammy history.

Kim Kardashian looked stunning in Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 robe dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  I loved her new haircut. Her makeup was flawless. The shape was a bit odd, but I think she pulled it off. Love. Love!
I thought Gwen Stefani in this black Spring 2015 Atelier Versace cropped jumpsuit looked hip and youthful. I was blown away to see her stray away from her signature red lip for once. Wow! .
Jennifer Hudson worked it in a white Tom Ford pencil length strapless dress. I like the trendy purple lip and that she is still rocking that pageboy hair cut. 
Nicole Kidman in pre-fall 2015 Thierry Mugler and Prabal Gurung heels. This look is perfect and she looked healthy and amazing. That blunt bob cut is very current. Nice!

Ciara was going for the wow factor here in this gorgeous couture Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2014 gown with black “Mea Culpa” Christian Louboutin pumps

Toni Braxton looked like a goddess in Marc Bouwer Fall 2015. 

Congrats to Erica Campbell who won the Best Gospel Gospel album for her solo project, “Hero”. She was regal in a royal purple dress by LUM, toting a petite glack Onna Ehrlich clutch with Casadei Offiical pumps. 

This is such a different but very gorgeous look for Giuliana Rancic in Steven Khalil with Gianvito Rossi shoes and Jack Vartanian earrings.

And another stunner Giuliana Rancic later in a Bouchra Jarrar jumpsuit.

Not a mom  but my fave for the night was Rihanna in Giambattista Valli.  Yeah, she was meme-ified a bunch tonight, but I think she owned the moment, stood out and glowed. Her make up was flawless, the strapless halter bodice portion fit perfectly and the billowy layers made me smile.

Best Celebrity maternity style of 2014

We’re at the end of another fab year at Bellyitch Blog. The team got together and voted on who the top ten most fashionable pregnant American celebrities were in 2014. Here they are:

1.  Blake Lively
First time mom-to-be actress Blake Lively is doing an excellent job being playful with colors, textures and accessories. She mixes cute capes and necklaces and has perfect flowing hair. The Gossip Girl alum totally changed the maternity fashion game with her effervescent and seemingly effortless style. We are sure there is a stylist somewhere who deserves credit too. We think.

 2. Stacy Keibler
Stacy Keibler channeled BoHo Chic this first pregnancy by accenting her various casual looks with cute fedoras gladiator sandals and playful fringe purses. When going out and about, the former WWE wrestler sticks with a black palette but kept it playful with color. Her debut bump in a black cut out dress kept the gossip and fashion blogs talking and catapulted her to the top of the bump watch list this past summer. 
3. Zoe Saldana

Currently pregnant with twins, Zoe Saldana carried off her best looks early in her pregnancy rocking a super cute black shirt dresses, slip dresses and bump hugging pencil-skirt length dresses while attending fashion week shows and promoting her various projects. We loved her styled look for the cover of Elle the best because it was so unexpectedly sexy and wild. 
4. Carrie Underwood
Country singer Carrie Underwood was one of the hardest working pregnant celebrities this year. The American Idol winning singer-actress could be found in baby doll dresses, Grecian gowns, and mini dresses while hosting award shows, and performing at major concert events all across the country. 
5. Ciara
Ciara introduced us to her maternity style in a custom 20s style pin-striped suit this summer. She kept her fans and followers following her on Instagram on their toes with her cute ensembles and even cuter dance moves and mini-IG fashion shoots. There was no stopping this singer-songwriter who welcomed son Future recently and promptly dropped the weight and rocked Paris Fashion week.
 6.  Kelly Rowland
Singer  and award-winning chart-topper Kelly Rowland kept it comfy in the bump-hugging jersey maxi-midi dresses she sported much this pregnancy. She also wasn’t afraid to experiment and change up her hairstyle often all pregnancy long going with a bold and different halo braid at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles. 
7. Kourtney Kardashian
The eldest sister in the Kardashian klan, Kourtney, mixed it up a bunch this third pregnancy. She was trendy in overalls early in her pregnancy, played up stripes with a bold yellow shoppers bag by late second trimester. She showed lots of leg in mini mini dresses but also wore ringlets and maxi dresses at other times. It was all unexpected and no set pattern with Kourt. 
8. Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington stayed low-profile with her pregnancy but once the word was out, we got to see her all award-season long, she sported different designers’ custom looks and never stopped mixing it up. She even worked in the crop top trend from last spring into her maternity red-carpet wardrobe. Yass, Kerry! 
9. Molly Sims
Former model Molly Sims  has been having the best styled year on red carpets this second pregnancy. From cropped and fishtails to glam and beaded, Sims has been a head turner these days. It’s definitely a step up or in a different direction than first round. And we also like how she has been very versatile with her hair styles doing Hollywood waves, sleek and straight and 80s flips at different events. Werk. 
10. Savannah Guthrie
This TV journalist Savannah Guthrie bumped it up daily on TODAY and kept a big bright smile as an accessory . Although, she made knee-length dresses with side scrunching a staple, we love how she mixed it up with color, accent collars and necklaces, and threw in denim and other fabrics in her look every now and again. She was definitely a style maven for the professional preggers mama at the office.   
Honorable Mention: Yandy Smith
We love any celebrity, pregnant or not, who experiments much with color and isn’t afraid to go with hot pink at one event then flip the switch and go with cobalt blue at another and that’s why we couldn’t leave out Love and Hip Hop‘s Yandy Smith to rep the reality TV show genre along with Kourt.  This music industry manager and reality TV star also kept her hair game on point, sporting luscious long ringlets at promotional events for her various projects.
