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. 

Why I think Ayesha Curry is Having a Boy This Time

Ayesha Curry is not having a go at it this third pregnancy which makes me think she is having a baby boy this time.

The third-time mom-to-be posted a pregnancy update on her blog this week.

“I️ wish I️ could say I️ feel like a maternal goddess drifting through my pregnancy unscathed by acne, nausea and the occasional ‘oops I️ peed a little,’ but that would be a lie,” the cookbook author wrote. “I️ am a little over 4 months and basically almost halfway through my pregnancy.”

She added: “I️ still have nausea, can’t sleep, pee every 5 seconds and am just so darn tired. I️ have what docs call Hyperemesis. This basically means the nausea, incessant sickness and exhaustion probably won’t go away.”

Curry then compared her condition to the same one that hamstringed the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine.

”The only silver linings here are that my itty bitty baby is healthy and Princess Kate has suffered from the same condition during her pregnancies. Not feeling super royal though.”

My pregnancies with my boys were just as she described and my girl was a breeze. I think these different symptoms explains a lot. I may be wrong. We will see.

Curry, who also has a line do Home pedicure that sell at Target, has two daughters 5-year old Riley and 2-year old Ryan with husband, NBA Star Steph Curry.

Hang in there, mama!

Not Talked About as Much but Kate Middleton is In Her Last Trimester Already

While everyone has been obsessing over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s pending nuptials and the Jenner-Kardashian baby boom, the Duchess of Cambridge and former Kate Middleton has been busy making her royal duties while 7-months preggers.

That’s right, you could barely tell by how tiny her bump is that Duchess Catherine is well into her third and final trimester and a few weeks away from delivering another Royal baby.

The previously most talked about Royal is an official ambassador to Addiction and was photographed recently attending a charity center that helps adults overcome drug and substance abuse.  Now that her extreme morning sickness has subsided, Kate has been doing a lot of appearances of late.

You can nab her Eller Coat by GOAT in Marine Blue for £420 or $583.

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.

Duchess Catherine and her Tiny Bump Debuts in Public

Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge stepped out for the first time since announcing her third pregnancy on Tuesday night.

The British royal was joined by her husband William, Duke of Cambridge, as she debuted her tiny bump in a pale blue Temperley London dress while attending an event in London to mark World Mental Health Day.

Her US$1,050 dress, the Eclipse Lace Collar Dress in Iris, skimmed over her tummy, and the 35-year-old teamed the outfit with a black clutch bag and matching black court shoes.

Kate Middleton and Unconventional Extreme Morning Sickness Cures

In light of the fact that Duchess Kate (nee Middleton) is in the news again over her extreme case of morning sickness which forced her to have to reveal very early that she is with child again (for the third time), we thought we would re-share this post on Morning Sickness cures!
If you are in your first trimester of pregnancy and experiencing extreme morning sickness and can’t seem to get the traditional remedies such as mint tea, small meals, crackers and preggie pops to work, try these unconventional tricks;
1. Eat high protein right before going to bed.
2. Switch to iron-free prenatal vitamins and get your iron sources from foods like spinach and nuts.
3. Sip slowly on ice cold water when you feel queasy.
4. Take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of warm water.
5. Before you get up in the morning, eat 2 saltine crackers in bed.
6. Eat a few almonds before you get up in the morning.
7. Take ginger in the form of tea, ginger mints or cookies.
8. Take vitamin B6 pills.
9. Use acupressure bands
10. Inhale the peppermint tea and wear peppermint oil on your wrist and sniff it when you get nauseous.
Hope you get relief.

It’s Baby 3 for Duchess Kate and Prince William

It’s baby number 3 for Princess Kate and Prince William!

 Kensington Palace confirmed today that the royal family are expecting a third child.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” a statement from Kensington Palace, released Monday morning, said.

The former Kate Middleton is not yet three months along but is experiencing the same extreme morning sickness as she experienced when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte and therefore would have to skip out on making appearances, hence the decision to come out with the news earlier than normal.

“As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today,” the statement said. “The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

The royals are already parents to 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte.

You Won’t Believe What Kate Middleton is Being Criticized For Doing to Her Family

The former Kate Middleton is known for being a style icon, a down-to-earth Royal and a positive and influential example of modern motherhood. For example, she bans her children from playing with tech devices and urges them to play with real life toys, not digital ones.

But, she is also criticized often in the British and Aussi press for a lot of random stuff we find ridiculous.

For example, one Royal watcher said Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge has taken the “magic” out of royalty . Um… exsqueeze me?! It was the claimant’s back handed compliment way of saying that she has managed to relay relatively normal life and as a result, she is more relateable, albeit seemingly because she is a commoner, approachable and has removed the mystique from what it meant to be a royal. Errr. Okay. Sure, dude.

Another post by an Australian website went after her for color-coordinating her family’s outfits when they go out, knowing they will be photographed.

*gasp*

I mean how dare she try to portray a pleasant aesthetic! The horror!

Personally, we like the coordinated outfits!

While visiting the Poland and Germany this Summer, Kate kept it neutral, arriving at the airport tarmac in a white Alexander McQueen Double-breasted wool and silk-blend peplum coat and her fave pair of nude Gianvito Rossi pumps, Princess Charlotte matched in a red and white floral dress with red Mary Janes and Prince George in a plaid shirt with complementary colors.

Landing in Berlin with her family in a blue Catherine Walker coat dress, again with her nude Gianvito Rossi pumps and accented with Kiki McDonough jewels.

How adorable is this floral Erdem dress paired with these nude Stuart Weitzman strappy heels that has a hint of gray in it to match with William’s grey tie with white polka dots?

Love this crimson off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress.

Bump Speculation: Meghan Markle at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Reception

89c946ff-d93a-4830-97f8-b6d4aa22dee8

The sister to our most popular bumpwatched alum Catherine Duchess of Cambridge (nee Kate Middleton) got married on Saturday, May 20 at St. Mark’s church in England:

Pippa Middleton married her fiancé of two years, hedge fund manager James Matthews, at a lavish ceremony where her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the wedding party, along with sister Kate and princes Harry and William.

The bride wore a jaw-dropping white lace gown courtesy of British designer Giles Deacon.

She also married into royalty as Matthews is the heir to a Scottish title. His father, David Matthews, is otherwise known as the Laird of Glen Affric, meaning that eventually, Pippa will be known as Lady of Glen Affric.

The ceremony was also notable for rumors that Pippa only permitted significant others who were fiance or married to a family member to attend- a so-called “no ring, no bring” policy.

William’s bro is famously seriously dating American actress Meghan Marke. While the Suits star didn’t make the ceremony, the Daily Mail reports that she did attend other wedding weekend events including a Bucklebury,  Bershire event and  air exhibition at the Middleton’s estate.

Markel attended while Pippa’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews‘ girlfriend Vogue Williams did not. So…hmmmm

Also, we don’t think it is there, but a few folks thought they saw a slight bump on her recently, sparking Bumpwatch and marriage speculation widely.

Time will tell.
