Ok. Halloween was Wednesday but I say until the end of Daylight’s Savings Time, it’s open season for bloggers to share Halloween costumes and their fave costume posts before we launch into Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Holiday season posts.

So…Here is my list of fave celebrity Halloween costume photos featuring their families and children that they shared in social media.

First, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, the celeb women whose pregnancies we’ve featured on this blog:

Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and their son Silas went as the Lego version of Batman, Robyn and Harley Quinn!

Neil Patrick Harris and his fam usually do the best each year and this year was no different when they dressed as ghosts from the past.

Ciara and her fam dressed as characters from the Black Panther movie.

Khloe Kardashian and her daughter Tru dressed as Unicorns.

They also dressed as tigers.

Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi dressed as butterflies

They also dressed as “Stormi Weather”

Saint and North West and Penelope and Reign Dissick as Kanye West and Lil Pump  

Pink and son, Jameson were the cutest pirates during the week.

And later with the whole family as The Greats Showman on Earth!

Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth and youngest son dresses as ghoulish characters and her older son dresses as a rapper?

Alyssa Milano and her children dressed as Pokemon characters.

Hilaria Baldwin and her husband Alec Baldwin and their kids, Carmen, Rafael and Leonardo Baldwin are astronauts.

Celebrity Halloween 2018 Costumes (PHOTOS *UPDATED*)



Every year, celebrities go above and beyond to give superb portrayals for Halloween. This year did not disappoint. Here is a quick rundown of my faves including some from our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Ciara, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jaime King and more.

Kylie Jenner recreated the Barbie in a box. It was one of several costumes she wore this season. She went as a Butterfly in a mommy and me photo with her daughter and as a Victoria Secret Angel group costume with her sisters. (see below)

The winner might be Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner killed as Gomez and Morticia Addams complete with Thing on his shoulder! Best hands down in my opinion this year!

oh I think Heidi Klum as Princess Fiona and Tom Kaulitz as Shrek as  is up there too!

Alicia Keys went over the top but in a good way as a Ninja. I mean, she had her entire costume as part of a movie poster and all with the credits including her children and husband.

Beyonce paid homage and tribute to Lil Kim last  year and this year, she went with another icon: Toni Braxton. She dressed as the pop crooner’s cover album for “Another Sad Love Song.

Actress, former model Jaime King dolled it up as Joan of Arc at Just Jared’s Halloween party presented by Carls Jr.

Ciara‘s costume portrayal of Black Panther heroine Nakia from Black Panther is 10X Levels Up! She did Wakanda right!

Crazy Rich Asians actor Harry Shum Jr. was boss as Eric Draven from the 1994 film The Crow,!

I wanted to go as Ariana Grande this year but I don’t think anyone did her better than Kourtney Kardashian did!

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend killed as Queen Elizabeth the II and Prince Phillip.

Winnie Harlowe as RuPaul

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson as Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwazzeneger in “Twins”

Kelly Clarkson as a penguin and Jennifer Hudson as Catwoman

The Kardashian/Jenner girls were blessed to have Victoria’s Secret loan them actual angel wings so they can dress as true Angels for Halloween.

My fave is Kourt’s because she is tiny and the oldest

Bethenny Frankel could have joined the sisters because she too dressed as a Vicky Sec angel this year.

 

The Ladies of The Real TV talk show dressed up as iconic TV talk show hosts. Tamera Mowry-Housley was Tyra Banks. Jeannie Mae went as Ellen Degeneres. Loni Love dressed as Oprah Winfrey and Adrienne Houghton as Sally Jessy Raphael.

The TODAY show traditionally go all out for Halloween. This  year, I was thoroughly impressed by Al Roker and Dylan Dreyer dressed as Marty McFly and Doc Brown From Back to the Future.

Kelly Ripa is usually a show stopper wearing a variety of looks and costumes each Halloween with her hosts throughout the years, Regis, Michael Strahan and now with Ryan Secrest. They did a bunch of 80s TV show characters this year. She did it up as as Vicki the Robot From Small Wonder.

The two of them portrayed Jeannie and Major Nelson From I Dream of Jeannie.

And one of my fave shows: Laverne and Shirley‘s Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney.

Seacrest came out in a small model car like the one Ricky Stratton From Silver Spoons owned and drove in the opening sequence to that show.

Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest, and Art More as a modern twist on the Friends Cast.

I loved Disney Channel stars Jenna Ortega and Asher Angel as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. I asked my husband to go as this duo to a Halloween party we were going to and he said no. Boo!

Monica is another celebrity that puts a lot of work into her Halloween costume every single year. She dressed as Johnny Depp‘s portrayal of the Mad Hatter.

Sarah Michelle Gellar looked hot as as Harley Quinn.

Adrienne Bosh could barely be made out in her Halloween Insta share as a Ghoulish Ghost.

One of my faves because of how close to the original it was is Madison Pettis from Nickelodeon‘s Cory in the House as Coachella Beyonce

Also loved Gwen Stefani as Sally From Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Speaking of which! Gabriel Union did a great job dressing as Stefani in No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” video before heading out to her birthday party.

No. Doubt. @gwenstefani

Independence Day: Rock Stars and Stripes like These Celebs

Feeling patriotic?

Wearing the America Flag’s Stars and Stripes have been a trending item in past seasons and doing so is popular each year around the 4th of July.

Actually, according to the US Constitution, the flag should not be worn in the form of clothing. Doing so is a sign of disrespect. However, it is so common nowadays in modern secular society that no one bats an eye if someone wears Old Glory on their bottom.

To be safe, we’d suggest going with a plain t shirt with the flag on it as Gisele Bundchen and Kendall Jenner have been seen wearing in the past. An entire dress, like the ones Halle Berry and Meryl Streep have donned, might be over -the-top but they can work too. You can mix it up by separating the stars from the strips like with a jacket Ciara was spotted wearing is a great not so conspicuous way to show your American pride.

Celebs are famous for flaunting their figures in stripes short shorts. You can get Beyonce’s shorts from Forever 21 for $21.99.

estelle stars and stripes

Or pick up a red and white stars and stripes top like the one R&B singer Estelle wore once in the past from Zulily for $26.00.
They can be nabbed at big box stores like Walmart and Target around this time of year and usually get discounted on July 5th but that doesn’t mean you are limited to wearing patriot gear on these days only. Have it your way!

2018 Billboard Awards (Quick Rundown)

Mom-to-be Cardi B was nominated for seven Billboard awards tonight at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada and came away with a win for Top Rap Female artist award besting Nicki Minaj who was also nominated in that category.

Our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Janet Jackson showed up on the red carpet looking youthful as ever. She was on hand to receive the Icon Award, the first Black Woman to be bestowed the honor. She also performed a medley of her hits including “Nasty”, “Throb” and “If.”

Kelly Clarkson hosted the event and also looked fabulous in a medley of her own of fab  outfits. She started the night addressing the latest school shooting in Texas with a heart felt plea to do something more than have “moments of silences” and “thoughts and prayers” each time there is a school shooting in America. “It’s time we had a moment of action, she pleaded before kicking off the night. Later Khalid and Shawn Mendes did a moving tribute backed by the choir from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the site of another school shooting earlier this year.

 Christina Alguilera performed a duet with Demi Lovato. Jennifer Lopez performed her song  “Dinero” but without Cardi who did not attend the show and perhaps was dealing with the stresses of her fiance Offset getting into a terrible car accident. 

Other celeb moms we’ve featured prominently on the blog in attendance included Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair Murad, Padma Lakshmi, Tyra Banks, Mila Kunis in David Koma  and  Ciara in a body fitting sheer dress..

Fun times!

Judge Orders Kelis and Nas to Avoid Making Their Son Famous in Social Media

·

Chef, Cookbook author and singer Kelis and her ex-fiance rapper Nas  have reached a custody and visitation arrangement over their 8 year old son, Knight.

According to TMZ, a judge stepped in to preside over Nas’ complaint that the “Milkshake” singer made it difficult for him to see his child. Kelis has since welcomed a second son, Shepherd, with a partner she has never disclosed publicly.

TMZ reports:

According to court docs, the exes hammered out specific dates where Nas will have custody of Knight for weekends. Dad gets four full weekends over January, February and March. Nas’ weekend visits will begin immediately after school on Fridays … thru Sunday night, or Monday night, if it’s a 3-day weekend.

Another interesting part of the judge’s order: Try to limit exposing their son and ”popularizing” him in social media!

Ok.

We get it tho. There have been quite a few social media custody battles play themselves out in social media, most notably Ciara and Future over their son Future Zahir and Eva Marcille and Kevin McCall over their daughter, Marley Rae.

Ciara’s husband NFL quarterback Russell Wilson faced backlash last year for wishing his wife a Happy Mother’s Day on behalf of him and “our kids”.  Future fans saw it as a slap in the face to his step son’s dad.

McCall reportedly disowned Marley when Marcille posted an Instagram photo of Marley with her fiancé attorney Michael Sterling.

Nas rarely, if ever, posts photos of his son in social media and Kelis does so sparingly and never shows either of her children’s faces when she does. In fact, it looks like around the same time of the judge’s orders, she posted the above photo of herself with Knight on Instagram recently, with his cap over his face.

“Just exploring the world with my little ones by my side,” she captioned the colorful photo on a yacht or boat.

The timing to the proximity of the order is uncanny.

Speaking of which, Kelis has a mad dope Instagram feed! You should follow her if you are a fan of travel, color, music and culture!

Our Pick of the Top 13 Most Stylish Preggers Celeb of 2017

Last year, we followed some pretty stylish celebs throughout their pregnancies.

We selected the top twelve of the most fashionable.

 

#13 Chrissy Teigen, #12 Duchess Cate and #11 Naturi Naughton

13. Model, author and TV host Chrissy Teigen announced that she and hubby John Legend were expecting again after welcoming their first child, Luna following years of fertility struggles. We’ve seen her style focus on feminine maxi dresses with intricate floral themes this pregnancy.

12. Duchess Catherine is also expecting, but she is on baby number three with husband Prince William. She always carry small which makes her bump tough to discern under her usually monochromatic sheath dresses, nautical structure dresses, and rider pants and boots under sweater, her usual fashion scheme.

11. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Power star Naturi Naughton get dressed up to promote the third season of her hit STARZ channel show. She mixed it up with bold color, bump hugging dresses, fun and flirty dresses and bright pumps.

#9 Bar Rafaeli, #8 Behati Prinsloo and #7 Tia Mowry Hardrict

10. Models models and more models. Though Miranda Kerr is on her second pregnancy, we loved seeing her and fellow Victoria Secret runway stars 9.  Bar Refaeli and 8. Behati Prinsloo show off their ity bity bikini wearing selves on the Gram. Prinsloo and her husband, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine, are parents to a daughter, Dusty Rose, they welcomed in September 2016.

7. One half of our fave twin stars, Tia Mowry Hardrict also shows up on our top ten list as she has been showing off a more stylish pregnancy this round and some of it on her new YouTube video series show, Tia Mowry’s Quick fix. She too had some struggles before this pregnancy. Her son Cree with actor husband Cory Hardrict is 6 years old and she had discussed wanting to have a second shortly after he was born but was hamstrung by endometriosis.

 

#6 Toya Wright, #5 Amal Clooney and #2 Beyonce

6. Reality TV star Toya Wright has always been a fashion plate on the Gram so it was no surprise that she continue to wow us with her maternity looks. All eyes were on international human rights lawyer 5. Amal Clooney who welcomed her first children, twins with husband George Clooney this summer.

 

4. Lauren Conrad, 3. Ciara, . Miranda Kerr

4. Fashion designer and lifestyle brand Lauren Conrad didn’t share too many public photos of herself while preggers but shots of her baby shower shows she kept is streamlined, simple and feminine. And pop star 3. Ciara also was understated during her second pregnancy with husband Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

2. Beyonce showed a lot more of herself this pregnancy compared to last when she remained a virtual recuse. As a result, her blog and social streams were flooded with fabulous, over-the-top, avante-garde looks! 

Number 1 on our list is Khloe Kardashian who only acknowledge that she is 6 months preggers in the last few weeks of 2017. She sticks to a mainly black palette but her choice of oversized stylish sweaters and sweatshirts is comfy, relate able yet chic.
