There was plenty of bumping around at this year’s 2019 Country Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
(From left to right in the above graphic)
First-time mom-to-be and recipient of the most nominations of the night, Maren Morris, posed on the red carpet with her husband Ryan Hurd in a baby blue (for the boy she’s carrying maybe) off the shoulder blouse with matching high-waisted floor-length skirt by Honayda and heels by Casadei. Hurd looked dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Cartier watch and Stephen Webster cufflinks.
Morris walked away with Album of the Year for “GIRL”.
“Best Shot” country singer Jimmie Allen cradled the belly of his pregnant fiance Alexis Gale and Thomas Rhett and his pregnant wife Lauren Akins bumped it up with their daughters, 4-year old Willa and 2-year old Ada.
Stunning host Carrie Underwood looked exquisite in all of her looks including her red carpet dress she posed in with her Canadian ice hockey star hubby Mike Fischer: a sparkling Elie Madi gown featuring a slim sheer over skirt and a tulle cape and train paired with Jimmy Choo heels, Jared Lehr earrings and rings from Loree Rodkin and Maxior.
Other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums on the carpet included:
Pink (Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki) and family showed up and showed out.
As did singer Jessie James Decker in Materiel with Tamara Mellon shoes with her husband, former NFL quarterback Eric Decker.
Hillary Scott in In Dolce & Gabbana, Reese Witherspoon in Saint Laurent with Nikos Koulis jewelry and Decker.
And Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles made a statement with her Christian Siriano pantsuit and cape, with the words “Play our f*@#in records please and thank you” written on the inside by artist Alice Mizrachi. Read about the reason behind the look here!
I almost forgot to bring you guys the run down of the gorgeous celeb mamas we’ve covered in the past who attended the CMAs (Country Music Awards) at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 2) in Nashville, Tennessee.
Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum band mates made the rounds in front of the flashing lights with Scott sporting a gorgeous white Pamella Roland gown. She looked amaze-balls…I mean better than I have ever seen her! Gorg!
Jennifer Garner went with black as well in a floor length slim fitting Jenny Packham gown with an adorned halter top. She looked youthful and refreshing! Beautiful!
Some of yall who don’t follow this genre of music might not have known that Britney Spears‘ baby sister Jamie Lynn Spears is an accomplished and successful country music singer and award-winning songwriter of hits for other artists.
Jessie James Decker showed out in a sequined halter gown with sexy side cut outs from Jay Godfrey NY. I loved her loose ringlets that framed her face and her nude matte make up was perfect! C’est Bonne!
I loved the gorgeous J. Mendel one sleeve cap sleeve dress that Jennifer Nettles wore with the sheer under blue applique and that tangerine popped against her olive tone skin. Nettles rarely does wrong on the red carpet. She has a great figure.
Finally, Carrie Underwood hosted and walked away with the Female Vocalist of the Year award but before walked the red carpet in a beaded dusty pink Michael Cinco halter gown with Swarovski crystals, pearls and scattered organza flowers. She accessorized the dress with triangle-shaped Butani diamond earrings and diamond rings by Hearts on Fire and Harry Kotlar. (I borrowed US Weekly‘s description. tee hee)
During the show, she changed outfits 10 times, paying homage to past First Ladies of Country including: Reba McEntire‘s plunging red dress from 1993 to Dolly Parton‘s famous silver gown from the 1970s; and Shania Twain and others.
As this month is a fashionable one with all the various designers unveiling their Spring 2016 and Fall 2015 collections on runways at various cities’ respective Fashion Weeks, and it being Virgo season, I thought I would highlight all the fashionable celebrity moms and designers we’ve covered in Bellyitch over the years.
Tom Ford also infamously said, “You know, the world might be a very scary place if it were only run by Virgos.” True, but every organization needs a Virgo in it to keep it running smoothly. So does the world!
I admit I am biased given my birthday was on September 6 and I myself am a proud Virgo and share a birthday with at least one spouse of a Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum and the sign with other alums (above) including the Queen Bee Beyonce (Sept. 4), Country singer Jennifer Nettles, (Sept. 12), TV host and former model Padma Lakshmi (Sept. 1) , Songstress P!nk (Sept. 8) and powerhouse singer and actress Jennifer Hudson (Sept. 12).
Our Virgo Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who are actual designers include Stella McCartney (Sept. 13), Nicole Richie (Sept. 21), and Rachel Zoe (Sept.1)
Male Fashion Icons and Designers I love and admire (either for their fashion sense, work ethic or a combo of both) include: my birthday mate and alum Idris Elba (Sept. 6), Tom Ford (Aug. 27), Karl Lagerfeld (Sept. 10); and guys whose S.O. we recently covered Wiz Khalifa, ex to Amber Rose (Sept. 8) and Evan Ross, spouse to Ashlee Simpson (Aug. 26).
Young and/other influential in-demand Fashionable women I enjoy seeing dressed up as fashion muses for several designers: Taraji P. Henson (Sept. 11), KeKe Palmer (Aug. 26), Misty Copeland (Sept. 10), Zendaya Coleman (Sept 1) and Angela Simmons (Sept 18).
Finally, fashion forward and super sexy Salma Hayek (Setp. 2), Jada Pinkett Smith (Sept 18) and Sanaa Lathen (Sept. 19) also rock the Virgo Virgin sign well.
And of course Ludacris (Sept 14), rounding up for pops of recent alum Eudoxie.
Happy Birthday, Virgos!
Jennifer Lopes and Jennifer Nettles at the Tony Awards. SpikeTV Guy Awards nominee Taraji P. Henson
It’s been a busy couple of weekends for red carpet star-studded events starting with the June 2nd Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens in London, England.
We spotted several Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Kerry Washington killing it in a black David Komo bandeau top with gold embellished slim skirt with a deep split also by David Komo. Kate Hudson too was bringing this season’s plunging neckline trend to the forefront in her eye-catching Burnt Orange J.Mendel dress, accented with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch and Brian Atwood pumps. Rochelle Humes looked elegant as well.
Yesterday, at Spike TV‘s Guy Choice 2015 at Sony Picture Studios in Culver, City, we spotted Taraji P. Henson showcasing the white on white trend. With no surprise “Cookie” took home the Jean-Claude Ghad Dam award while another Bellyitch Bumpwatch babe Salma Hayek walked away with the much deserved Decade of Hotness award.
Tonight, at the Tony Awards, we saw a Jennifer Lopez was serving up the old Hollywood glam with the her wavy do in a darker shade than she’s been wearing lately. Her Valentino Couture gown was elegant and perfectly accentuated with Harry Winston jewels, a Jimmy Choo purse and Christian Louboutin heels. Anna Chlumsky was also in the house in an eggplant colored form fitting Sophie Theallet dress.
I also adored what Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles wore too. She was gorg.

My fave look for the weekend was not worn by a mom but Vanessa Hudgens. I loved the big bold floral patterns in this with the deep plunging neckline Naeem Khan gown. She looked Amaze Balls!
