Beyonce SwItches Up with a Maternity Mini Dress

94ee1d31-c182-470d-addd-07f176a69ec6

Beyonce is like us: use Flashback  Friday on social media as a excuse to share not -so-old cute pics just because..

This Friday, the second time mom-to-be shared photos of the outfit she wore to Jessica Alba‘s MJ & Prince– themed party that was held on April 28.

In the photo series, the mega star sported an Any Old Iron and a super cute Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti Mini dress accented by a Saint Laurent bag, and Chloe shoes with a Gladys Tamez hat and rings by XIV Karats.

Bey and husband Shawn “Jay Z” Carter are expecting their second and third child, twins!

I prefer the mini dresses but have enjoyed all her maternity looks so far.

 

In Bump Watch News: Beyonce, Tori Spelling and Hannah Jeter

bumpwatch

I must admit that I enjoy that the Bey Hive is on patrol to shut down critics of Beyonce in the comment section to articles about her like this one below about her first major 3-hour shopping trip after announcing her news. Go Beygency, Go!

Oh and in other pregnant celebrity news, Tori Spelling posted a photo of herself at close to term on her social media account.

And after having very public and rumored relationships  with a bunch of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums like Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Lachey, Jessica Biel, and Adriana Lima, ex MLB star Derek Jeter and his Victoria Secret swimsuit model wife Hannah Jeter are expecting their first child together since marrying

She posted a bump photo on Instagram recently.

And now a repost of the E! article about Bey:

If you were browsing the racks at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills Thursday, you were in some special company.

Fresh off her 2017 Grammys performance and wins, Beyoncé made a rare public appearance at the luxury department store during its regular open hours and spent about three hours shopping.

The 35-year-old pop star, who is expecting twins with husband Jay Z, dressed casually in a black printed T-shirt and shorts and white sneakers and was accompanied by a group of bodyguards.

She did not buy children’s items. She walked through several floors, looking at designer gowns, purses, jewelry and shoes. She purchased a $1,225 pair of redIsabel Marart Laith leather knee-high boots, a pair of Ulla Johnson shoes and Nike sneakers, a source told E! News exclusively.

Beyoncé spent about 20 minutes in the store’s Barneys Bungalow, a specialty space where gowns from Prabal Gurung, J. Mendel, Lanvin, JC Obando, Monique Lhuillier, YSL and Manolo Blahnik and other designer brands, as well as luxury tuxedos and accessories, are displayed in honor of Hollywood’s award season. Several racks of dresses and other items were brought out for the singer, who sat on a light green couch.

“Beyoncé tried on several dresses but began not to feel well and was tired,” the source said.

“She seemed very nice and was very casual,” the source added about the singer’s visit. “She had several bodyguards around her and everyone in the store was chatting about her being there.”

The source also said Beyoncé has bought children’s items at Barney’s in the past.

The singer announced her pregnancy on Feb. 1 via a baby bump photo posted on her Instagram page. She followed it up with a full album of maternity pics, which also featured her and Jay Z’s 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

Last weekend, Beyoncé showcased her baby bump publicly for the first time, at the 2017 Grammys, where she won two awards and gave a much-talked about maternity-themed performance.

Rachel Zoe is back on TV hosting a weekly fashion review program on Lifetime Television called Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe. It premiered on September 24th. It is like Fashion Police meets Watch What Happens Live. But she says it is nicer.

Each week, Zoe and her co-host fashion insider and Vanity Fair‘s Man On The Street, Derek Blasberg, her  husband Rodger Berman, and their celebrity friends, meet up to talk fashion and review the week’s red carpet and celebrity street style.

It also reminds me a bit of the show on E! that I loved that Kristin Cavallari co-hosted, The FabulistI’m not sure if it returned because I haven’t seen new episodes.

Anyway, back to Zoe.  On the second show, the celebrity stylist turned designer interviews another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Molly Sims.

During her 10 questions segment, Sims reveals she is always late and her favorite hashtag is #MomLife. She answers other rapid fire questions. Watch!

bad blood bellyitchblog.com

I know I am making a late pass, but I just watched Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” video which was nominated for a 2015 MTV Video of the Year.

I immediately noticed all the cameos from some pretty kick ass pop stars, models and even some iconic figures sprinkled throughout the futuristic set Joseph Kahn-directed mini-movie.

Standing out to me also was all of the Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums and moms we’ve featured in the past: Lily Aldridge, Jessica Alba, Ellen Pompeo and Mariska Hartigay

bad blood debut

Swift debuted the video at this year’s Billboard Music Awards in May, along with some of the co-stars.

Aldridge was “Frostbyte” and engaged in an epic training battle with Swift’s character, “Catastrophe“, while Alba, as “Domino”, rode along with her on bad-a*ss souped up motorcycles as “Justice“, played by Hargitay and “Luna”, as portrayed by Pompeo, seemingly were senior members of the coven who okay’d the battle with her former partner turned nemesis “Arsyn,” played by Selena Gomez.

It could sound confusing if you haven’t seen it so here ya go: Check it out:
