You Could Never: JLo Rocks Trainers Night and Day

I’m pretty sure a lot of people couldn’t pull off trendy white platform sneakers for a date night the way Jennifer Lopez did recently while out with her new fiance Alex Rodriguez.

The mom to twins Max and Emme paired the Alexander McQueen oversized sole sneakers ($418)with acid washed distressed jeans and a cream cardigan under a luxe coat with fringe scarf.

In fact, this is the first time I’ve seen women over 40 sporting the white wedge thick soled sneakers look which has been common among Generation Z and millennial bloggers and YouTubers for awhile now.

But I am amazed that the hot bod could wear the same sneaks for running errands and working out as she wears hitting the night out with her hot rod!

Wow! Get the Look or similar:

OMG! Princess Charlotte Is the New Harper Beckham/Suri Cruise

Yesterday, the fact the Queen of England wore a brooch The Obamas gave her while meeting US President Trump was trending as people in social media referred to her as the “Queen of Shade”. It looks like her great granddaughter, Princess Charlotte, has some snarky non-verbal shading skills of her own.

While attending her baby brother Prince Louis‘ Christening at St. Jame’s Palace in London on July 9,Prince George and Princess Charlotte entered holding their father Prince William’s hands, while mom, Kate Middleton followed behind holding Prince Louis in her arms.

Charlotte shot the snapping press one fierce look that was reminiscent to Suri Cruise and Harper Beckham back when those two were the “it” celebrity baby darlings.

Dressed in a blue floral frock with her hair parted in the middle, the princess wore a blue headband that had a bow attached at the to with matching blue shoes and white socks.

Big bro donned navy knickers and a crisp white short sleeve shirt paired with navy socks and shoes.

Duchess Catherine stuck with her fave Alexander McQueen. Kate wore similar ensembles for George and Charlotte’s christening’s marking Louis’ as the third time wearing the beloved designer. Kate nailed her look and as the saying goes if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.

Kate Spade Leaves Behind a Long Legacy for Fashion Lovers

Today, the Fashion Industry and pop culture enthusiasts and more are mourning the death of designer Kate Spade who reportedly took her own life today inside her New York City apartment.

As the investigation into the apparent suicide goes on, many today are posting and sharing their memories of their first Kate Spade New York bag, accessory or the like in social media.

Kate and her husband Andy, brother of actor David Spade, founded their handbag and accessories business in 1993 and grew it to international success with Kate being the designer, mastermind and face of the label.

It was iconic and in my youth, a Kate Spade bag was an “it” item to procure and show off. Her death is a reminder of two other fashion icons who commit suicide approximately, 4 and 8 years ago: LWren Scott, in 2014, who was also a longtime partner of Mick Jagger at the time, and Alexander McQueen in 2010. It is also a call for us all to heed to the importance of self-care, tending to our own mental health and checking in with those in our lives who may be dealing with inner turmoil or suffering from depression.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

The last item of hers I purchased was a colorful striped iPhone cover.

When I think of Kate Spade, the following adjectives come to mind, as displayed through these wonderful pieces that represent her aesthetic in her brand, owned by Coach for the past 10 years:

Inside Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s Wedding (PHOTOS and LINK)

Tennis Champ Serena Williams wed Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian in a Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans on Thursday. The photos to the elegant affair were released today,  Friday.

The event, held at the, featured an A-List of celebrity guests including her sister Venus Williams, singers Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Ciara with their husbands , Kim Kardashian-West, actress Eva Longoria, Anna Wintour and more.

The reception started outdoors and spilled into the exposed brick wall lined gallery. The bridal party walked down a runway during their entrance.

Her daughter Olympia with her new husband was featured prominently at the event in a cute little flower girl dress, walked in being carried by  Serena’s mom Oracene Price. The couple said their personal vows over a floral arch.

Revived R&B 90s boy band group New Edition performed and Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo did an impromptu performance of “A Natural Woman.” Serena and Alexis performing their choreographed first dance to “Tale As Old As Time.”

Guests walked home with party favors that were tiny tennis trophies with the names of famous tennis greats emblazoned on them. An antique carousel was featured prominently inside the gallery.

The reception included several banquet style tables with the bride and groom sitting in throne-like golden chairs.

Williams took to Instagram on Friday to share a stunning shot of herself in her Alexander McQueen princess gown and the Groom wore Giorgio Armani. You can see the beautiful photos over at Vogue which assembled a lovely slideshow! 

Natalie Portman is Usually Pregnant During her Road to Oscar

portman-critics-choice

Pregnant women can do it all. Case in point: Natalie Portman. 

The Academy Award-winning actress had the nerve to look this fashionably adorable in a gorgeous flowing  floral Alexander McQueen frock while accepting the award for Best Actress at this week’s Critics’ Choice Awards this week.

She brilliantly rocked Steve Madden heels, a Christian Louboutin clutch, and Cartier jewelry at the event held this past December 11th.

The Israeli-American star also got a  top actress nod for the 2017 Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild!  This path is reminiscent to the last time she was expecting her first child Aleph, a son with her French choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied.

Portman received the equivalent of the est Actress award for her role in Black Swan at the Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globes and Academy Awards in 2011-2012.

The second time mom-to-be is much buzzed to also be nominated for and to take home a Best Actress Oscar win for her role as Jackie Kennedy in the critically -acclaimed biopic Jackie.

The movie follows the late former First Lady during the days after her husband John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in November 22, 1963.

The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards was held at Barker Hangar on December 11, 2016 in Santa Monica, California.

Apparently, she breathed life into the roll and was quite compelling.  

Go Natalie, Go! The stars are aligned for another sweep!

Photo & Video Replay of Princess Charlotte’s Historic Christening

inside royal christening

Two months after her May 2nd birthday, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana made her first public appearance this past Sunday, July 5.  She wore the same Christening gown that her brother Prince George wore to his Baptism in 2013.

And it was also the same gown their dad wore to his ceremony as a baby which was a replica of the gown Queen Victoria‘s daughter wore in 1841.

Charolette got pushed to the St. Mary Magdalene Church, a 16th-century chapel  near the Queen’s estate in Sandringham, Norfolk. It’s the same Church where her late Grandmom Princess Diana was christened in 1961.

Charlotte’s ride itself, a Millson pram, is an antique family heirloom once owned by Queen Elizabeth, and once used for the Duke of York and Earl of Wessez.

The church was minutes from her family’s home so they walked — a first for the Royal family.

At one point, Kate even had to push the pram up a muddy hill in her heels.

About 3,500 onlookers were allowed to come watch the rainy stroll to the private ceremony which lasted about 45 minutes.

And in another break form tradition, Catherine nee Kate Middleton and Prince William asked that onlookers be allowed to take photos.

Normally, photos are not allowed except during Christmas. Good for the most watched modern Royals! Charlotte’s mom was decked in a pristine fit and flare off white Alexander McQueen dress, nude Russell & Bromley pumps, accented  with a diamond ‘Empress’ necklace from jewelers Mappin and Webb, and a fancy  matching church hat from by Jane Taylor Millinery, the same place Charlotte’s aunt Pipa Middleton wore with her white Emilia Wickstead coat dress.

 

Prince George wore a Rachel Riley shorts and top Smocked set that the UK Telegraph pointed out looked similar to the outfit William wore when he want to meet his brother Harry. Nice observation!

The official photos taken by Mario Testino were recently released.

The group photo featured Queen Elizabeth II, husband Prince Philip, Prince Charles, wife Camilla Parker Bowles and the Middleton family. Also there were Charlotte’s  five godparents including the Honorable Laura Fellowes, Adam Middleton, James Meade, Sophie Carter and Thomas van Straubenzee.

Uncle Prince Harry was away in Africa during a charity trip.

 

Nice!

 

FASHION: Salma Hayek killed it at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival

Yes, we are down with the “Ask her More” campaigning encouraging the focus of celebrity women on red carpets to be about their careers and accomplishments. But we are also part fashion blog, we cannot help but point out that  Salma Hayek is killing it, fashion and style-wise, at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.
In this age of celebrities over 40 being accused of not dressing appropriately for their age, Hayek, a past Bellyitch bumpwatch alum, shows how to be sexy, classy and graceful while still current and age-appropriate stylish
She appeared mainly in Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent with a sprinkle of other couture designs. Along her side often was her billionaire business man husband and Frenchman François-Henri Pinault.
She wowed in Gucci on the red carpet to the premiere of Carol on May 17.
She looked radiant in red Alexander McQueen while talking at the American Pavilion.

Was FAB in Saint Laurent at the Kering Official Cannes Dinner at the Place de la Castre.

It wasn’t all fashion and glitz, Salma lent her expertise and perspectives as a few roundtables and female empowerment events during the annual event.  For example, on  May 16, she slayed in another classic MQD Alexander McQueen Tuxedo dress while attending the Variety Celebration of UN Women at Raddisson Blu.
And on Friday, May 15 she started the weekend in Black while attending “The Art of Behind the Scenes Jaeger-LeCoultre and Finch & Partners” party at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

 

That same day, she worked it in a Saint Laurent silk patchwork Georgette dress at the Kering Talks ‘Women In Motion’ at Kering suite during The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 15, 2015 in Cannes, France.

Loved the dotted Alexander McQueen dress she rocked the day before that at the Premiere of “Il Racconto Dei Racconti” (“Tale Of Tales”)  on May 14, 2015.

And earlier in the day in another Alexander McQueen dress at the photo call for that event.

Va Va voom!

Jennifer Hudson and Kim Kardashian Fashion Showdown

It’s quite easy for stars to wear the same dresses given that designers make available to stylists the same spectrum of options. Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Hudson have been captured often in the same outfit within days of one another over the years.

Per the above photo: in April 2011, in an Alexander McQueen epaulet top; last October 2013, in a Donna Karan Draped Plunging-Neck Dress; in March 2013, in a Donna Karan Metallic Foldover Stretch Pencil Skirt;and again in 2011 again, in Herve Leger by Max Azria.

Each outfit would set someone back over $1,000 each, but we’ve hand picked low budget options that cost under $50 each for the same look! Check it out:
