Chanel Iman, the Latest Expecting Victoria Secret Model’s Celeb Style

Mom-to-be Chanel Iman looked radiant while presenting at the  2018 Fragrance Foundation Awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 12, 2018 in New York City.

The Victoria Secret model went with her signature  red carpet look: a floor-length sleek dress with a deep split.  That day, it was a one shoulder dress in crimson color.

It was reminiscent to the black dress she worked to the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards at Brooklyn Museum a couple weeks earlier on June 4, 2018 in New York City.

The 27-year old joins the long list of Vicky Secret models we’ve “bump watched” on the blog including Jourdan DunnGisele  Bündchen, Irina Shayk, Shannon Click, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Miranda Kerr, and Bar Refaeli.

Iman and her husband, New York Giant’s Sterling Shepard, are both expecting their first child together

Second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman is buzzed to be a contender for another Best Actress Oscar Award based on her riveting performance in the upcoming drama Jackie, about John F. Kennedy’s First Lady.

Portman, who won an Academy Award for her haunting portrayal of a tortured professional ballerina in The Black Swan, attended the 54th New York Film Festival screening of the movie Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center on October 13, 2016 in New York City.

She was glowing in a flowy navy tent dress accented with black pumps and a black box clutch that she posed in before the screening and a Q&A after the film.

The director for the film Pablo Larraín said he couldn’t see any other actress playing the role.

“It was a combination of elegance, sophistication, intelligence, and fragility. Beauty and sadness can be something very powerful in our culture,” Chilean filmmaker Larraín  has said about the star who brought to life the post traumatic stress that Jackie Kennedy experienced during the four days following John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

According to a Vanity Fair feature, since the film’s debut, most critics have agreed with the man who manifested the collaboration, calling Portman’s performance riveting, astonishing, stunning, and deserving of awards. Since this first wave of rave reviews, the film has also garnered a prime, Oscar-qualifying release date of December 9, Vanity Fair notes, adding:

Portman’s preparation included working with a voice coach to perfect Kennedy’s mid-Atlantic, by way of Miss Porter’s finishing school, dialect. She also exhaustively researched—diving into anything and everything written about, recorded of, and filmed about Kennedy—discovering Kennedy’s great love of history and understanding that it was up to her, even when suffering through unspeakable personal tragedy, to cement her husband’s legacy. By the time Portman got to set, she was so immersed in the character that Larraín says a third of the movie was made with single takes—and he never needed more than five.

 

“I always felt like Natalie was giving so much . . . I could see how exhausting the emotional scenes were for her,” Larrain told the mag. “Once you feel you have it, you don’t have to keep digging. I’ve made movies where I’ve taken hundreds of shots if I need to—but here, she was giving so much.”

Bravo, Natalie! We’re rooting for her! Can’t wait to see the film!

Kim Kardashian’s Rocky road to pregnancy- before and after

This week, Kim Kardashian announced she and her husband Kanye West are expecting their second child. It was big news for less than a half a day when it was overshadowed by her step dad Bruce reveal in Vanity Fair magazine of his new transgender identity as Caitlyn Jenner.

Throughout all the amplified media attention over that news, Kardashian is dealing with severe morning sickness, USA Today reports . She appeared cool and collected rocking a black sheer and stud embellished Proenza Schouler dress with her hubby on the red carpet to Monday night’s CDFA Awards at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 1, 2015 in New York City.

In fact, the road to pregnancy and all involved with the state of pregnancy has been rocky for Kardashian.  The reality TV star battled harsh criticism over her weight gain and choice of maternity wear for the last pregnancy, then by its end she developed preeclamsia-triggered extreme high blood pressure. She had to have an emergency pre-term c-section caused by complications from that condition, and another problem with her uterine lining.

Then, on her journey to expand her family, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast member stumbled upon complications and experienced infertility for eight months before becoming successful with the help of in vitro fertiliztion.  A source to PEOPLE  magazine reported that the business mogul had to repair the lining of her uterus which was the source of a lot of her complications to conceive.

One has to just chuckle about the amount of reporting on one woman’s reproductive organs. Phew!

The family, which includes almost 2-year old Nori West, will welcome the new addition this December.

Congratulations!

And of course, as could be expected, the comments and tweets came flowing in joking that this baby will be named, South West.

Funny stuff!
