In lieu of the usual award show Red Carpet run down, we’re just showcasing the stunning baby bumps on display last night at the Academy Awards show held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Recording artist and model Ciara went to the Vanity Fair after party in an almost bare, sheer, see-through mesh Grecian crystal adorned custom Ralph & Russo one-shoulder gown revealing her silhouette and toned legs in a strategically placed slit and accompanying draping, highlighted with silver strappy heels and bronze make up.

She looked stunning.

Ciara is expecting her second child with husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. She is mom to almost 3-year old daughter Sienna Princess and 5 1/2 year old son Future Zuhair from a previous relationship, hip hop performer Future.

Meanwhile, Superstore star America Ferrera attended the actual awards ceremony and also went with another form of regal wear. Hers was a wine-colored custom Alberta Ferretii limited edition empire waist gown with full cap sleeves, accessorized with a custom Jennifer Behr brass halo.

It was a cute look for her.

The Ugly Betty alum and her husband Ryan Piers Williams are expecting their second child. They are parents to 1  1/2 year old son Sebastian Piers.

Gorge!

First-time mom-to-be Krysten Ritter showed off her baby bump at the premiere of the third and last season of her Netflix Marvel show Jessica Jones in a fire engine red bump-hugging Rodarte dress.

“This super pregnant superhero had lots of fun at the #jessicajones season 3 premiere celebrating the final 13 episodes!” the actress captioned an Instagram post about the event celebrating the season.

The Breaking Bad actress didn’t stay away from the sizzle while donning her signature dark cat-eye makeup, crimson lip and jet black hair in loose waves in ankle strap metallic red heels.

Ritter announced her pregnancy during the 91st annual Academy Awards back in February. 

This will be her first child with boyfriend of 5 years Adam Granduciel of the band The War on Drugs.

Though Netflix canceled Jessica Jones, a Marvel series about a super strong private detective, Hulu’s senior vice president of originals Craig Erwich told The Wrap that the streaming service may revive the series, along with Iron FistLuke CageThe PunisherJessica Jones, and Daredevil.

Academy Awards Timeline of Bumps on the Red Carpet

 

In 2012, Adele welcomed her first child, son Angelo, and the next year, she won an Oscar for Best Song for the and explained having to express breast milk in the bathroom to relieve her engorged breast.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer missed out on having to be heavily pregnant on the red carpet like several of her fellow A-listers in year’s past.

Oscar has played host to several heavily pregnant

In 1992, Susan Sarandon was almost due with her son Miles

whom she welcomed (with then-beau Tim Robbins) when she was nominated for her role in Thelma & Louise at age 47. (She didn’t win but was nominated 5 times and won Best Actress in 1996 for her role in Dead Man Walking.)

In 1998, Glen Close was 8-months pregnant when nominated for Fatal Attraction.

In 2000, four-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening was nominated for her role in American Beauty at almost 8 months pregnant with her fourth child with husband Warren Beatty, daughter Ella.

In 2003, Catherine Zeta-Jones accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Chicago while almost full term with daughter Cary with husband .

In 2004, Marcia Gay-Harden was nominated for her role in Mystic River, while pregnant with twins!

In 2006, Rachel Weisz was 7-months preggers with her and

then-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky when she won the Best Supporting Actress trophy for The Constant Gardner.

In 2011, Black Swan star Natalie Portman was 6 months pregnant with her and her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied,  first son, Aleph when she accepted her Best Actress award.

In 2014, although Kerry Washington was not nominated for an Oscar, she did attend, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.

That same year, Chris Hemsworth ’s wife, Elsa Pataky  in 2014 wore blue sequins but maybe made a fashion mistake of wearing it under and not on top of her belly.

Kate Middleton Stuns in Forest Green at BAFTA, Receives Criticism

The British version of the Academy Awards, the Britsh Academy Film and Television Awards, went down this weekend at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall and Duchess of Cambridge Catherine attended.

The former Kate Middleton dressed her bump in a forest green gown by Brit designer Jenny Packham. The empire waistline dress featured a black sash over her belly perhaps as a nod to the fact that all the women attending the event were asked to wear black in solidarity for the Time’s Up and #MeToo Movement.

The dress also featured deep v-neckline on the front and a full, flowing skirt.

She actually got some flak for doing so and not donning all black. Defenders of Kate point to the fact that the Royal Family is not supposed to make a political stance but some would rebut that she already is an advocate for a number of women rights’ causes and thus dressing in solidarity would not be unlike her previous activity.

We thought she looked radiant! Her skin glowed. Her ringlets were shiny and bouncy. Overall, it was a great look for the Duchess. Her husband Prince William is currently the president of BAFTA and has been since 2010. He spoke out about the recent sexual harassment claims, allegations and controversy. 

Oscars 2015: We want to know what Reese Witherspoon will wear but she wants you to #AskHerMore

All eyes are on 2015 Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar nominated actress Reese Witherspoon. Many will be wondering who she will be wearing. However, in a recent Instagram post, Witherspoon spoke about the hashtag #AskHerMore to encourage red carpet reporters to query some of the 44 women nominated in this year’s Academy Awards on more than their style and clothing.

In actuality, we also understand the purpose is to highlight and spotlight the various designers and men are also asked who designed the tuxes or outfits they are styled in as well. A solution perhaps will be to release all the labels and designs to the red carpet producers before coming to walk that way all the reporters know in advance and can ask more substantive questions.

Well we are curious still to see what and who she will be wearing. The previous Best Actress Oscar winner (Walk the Line) is nominated for her performance in Wild.

During the award season she wore Chanel to the EE British Academy Awards nominees party at Kensington Palace on February 7 in London, England.

She sported Stella McCartney at the actual awards at The Royal Opera House the next day.

Before heading across the pond, she was spotted at the 87th Annual Academy Awards Nominee luncheon at The Beverly Hilton on Febuary 2 in Giambattista Valli.

She hit the other awards in style too. She wore Giorgio Armani to the 21st Annual Screen Actors’ Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium on January 25 in LA.

And went with a Mario BH cropped pants paired with a Giambattista Valli shirt at the 26th Annual Producers Guild of America Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel on January 24.

I adored her gorgeous silver strapless Calvin Klein dress she wore to the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 11 in Beverly Hills.

My least fave was the two tone Lanvin dress she wore at the Critics Choice Awards.

Pharrell Williams & Wife Helen’s Unconventional and Awesome Red CarpetStyle: 12 LOOKS

Last week, Pharrell Williams, Academy Award nominee for Best original song in a Motion Picture for his song “Happy” off the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, went to the Oscars in a mini pants tux by Lanvin. It caused quite the stir among fashion mavens and critics. It was much ado about nothing as many noted that musicians have standards for dress different than traditional Hollywood. 
But not much was mentioned about his new wife since last October 2013, Helen Lasichanh, and her gender bender awesome and unconventional style of dress.

The designer and model has a 5-year old son with Williams, Rocket Man Williams, born November 2008.  [Little known fact: Rocket Man inspired the song “Happy”.]

Williams and Lasichanh dated for several years before getting engaged last year for three months then marrying.

But um…can we pause for a second and admire and gawk at the amazing and fab eclectic and fashionable uniqueness that is the Williams’ red carpet couple style? 
Behold….

Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel debunk pregnancy rumors at Oscar events

Last night, was also about debunking false reporting about pregnancy.

A tiny bump in a photo with Jared Lareto at a pre-Oscar party had a few people speculating that Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was preggers with her second kid with husband Jim Toth.

But the actress, who is mom to  14-year old Ava and 10-year old Deacon with ex-hubby Ryan Phillipe and 1-year old Tennessee with Toth, showed up at the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party in West Hollywood wearing a mid-length sequinned asymmetrical BOSS number with a plunging neckline  revealing plenty cleavage, side boob and bare tummy.  The Walk the Line actress toted a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Irene Neuwirth jewels.
Jessica Biel also shut down pregnancy rumors as well in a Chanel Couture dress at the Academy Awards, worn with Tiffany jewels last night, and revealing a pretty small tiny waistline. This confirmed what her grandmom-in-law had said in the press about how Biel and new hubby Justin Timberlake are too busy for children. 


“They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going,” Timberlake’s grandmom Sadie Bomar told The Sun. “I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now. They do love each other dearly but they are apart so much it’s going to be hard going for them . . . I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal.”
Awww. Bellytich and other outlets had reported  back this January that the super cute power couple were expecting. Oh well. False alarm!
