Meghan Markle On Why She Doesn’t Do Social Media…Or any Media!

Last week was International Women’s Day and also an important week for the former Meghan Markle who was appointed by Queen Elizabeth, the Vice President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trus t on Friday.

The organization supports young leaders promoting social change, bettering their communities and providing work opportunities and hope for others across the globe.

Prince Harry is the president.

As part of her new role, the Duchess of Sussex will spotlight the work of the Trust with young leaders across the Commonwealth, in particular, the work of those supporting women and girls.

Perfect for this Women’s History Month!

To celebrate the new appointment and International Women’s Day, the duchess also spoke on a panel of female thought-leaders and activists at King’s College London.

“If things are wrong and there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something” she stated on the panel while wearing the Azzura Swirl Printed Shift dress by Reiss ($345) under a black Alexander McQueen Leaf Crepe blazer ( $1995), black Manolo Blahnik suede ‘BB’ Pointy Toe Pumps ($625) while carrying a leather with gold accent Stella McCartney Shaggy Deer Faux Leather Crossbody Bag and diamond pearl drop earrings by Caroline Parr with her hair in a messy bun.

Among several things she revealed during that panel is that she has canceled social media, explaining that she doesn’t engage with social media much as a personal choice, in an effort to avoid “getting muddled” by the “noise,” the UK’s Press Association (PA) news agency reports.

The response came after the former Suits TV star was asked how she felt about headlines that called her feminism “trendy.”

She replied: “I don’t read anything, it’s much safer that way, but equally that’s just my own personal preference, because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days, as opposed to getting muddled with that to focus on the real cause.”

She cotinued: “So for me, “I think the idea of making the word ‘feminism’ trendy, that doesn’t make any sense to me personally, right? This is something that is going to be part of the conversation forever.”

When asked later if she looked at Twitter, she replied: “No, sorry, no. For me that’s my personal preference.”

Good for her!

Yellow, Gold and Celestial Beings at Met Ball 2018 Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

So the annual fundraising gala to mark the opening of the new Spring exhibit at The Metropolitan Gallery of Art in New York City went down last night.

As with this event every years, guests are asked to come dressed according to the theme of the new exhibit: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination. This year’s official hosts were Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Amal Clooney (above in Richard Quinn) and Donatella Versace (who dressed a lot of the attendees this year)

With a theme like that not only do you expect some backlash at what could be expected as a parade of sacrilegiousness, but you sorely expect some interpretations of Angels, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Cardinals! They all were there last night too.

We just cover the moms and other celeb women we have frequently covered starting with two moms-to-be:  Homeland star Claire Danes who is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy and rapper and reality TV star Cardi B who is expecting her first child with her fiance rapper Offset.

Danes wore a custom floor-length empire waist Marni precious duchesse  red, magenta and caramel color block gown paired with Marni Monile handbag  and multicolour platform sandals.

Cardi looked regal in a custom golden bejeweled white Moschino gown. She was accompanied to the event by designer Jeremy Scott though her fiancé was there with the other two members of his group, Migos.

Of our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, we noticed a few trends within the theme.

Gold was one. Kerry Washington in a gorgeous floor-length Ralph Lauren dress with her afro serving as a halo! Evan Rachel Wood, Kim Kardashian-West in Versace and Irina Shayk.

We saw structure, ornateness and royal crimson in Solange‘s Iris Van Harper ensemble, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez‘s spectacular Balmain modern take on Joan of Arc and Scarlett Johanssson

Yellow was a prevalent theme and color and everyone wearing it last night looked stunning including Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren, Huma Abedin and Gabrielle Union in Prabal Gurung dress, Tasaki jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Anne Hathaway went with volume in her  Valentino gown which she paired did James Banks earrings, a The Code bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.

Meanwhile, Gisele Bundchen did old Hollywood glam but in an environmentally friendly way by working with Versacd to repurpose an old dress.

“Thank you @versace for working so hard to make me an eco dress. The fabric and lining used are both 100% organic silk ecologically dyed, the threads are 100% organic cotton and everything is certificated as GOTS: Global Organic Textile Standard,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress before heading out to the ball.

Kylie Jenner made her first official official red carpet appearance in a black velvet Alexander Wang gown with Chopard jewelry with her beau rapper Travis Scott since the two welcomed their first child together, daughter Storming

Uma Thurman was accompanied to the event by Maya Hawke, her daughter with Ex Ethan Hawke and  donned a white Gabriela Hearst dress, Giampiero Bodino jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Most people played it safe but understandingly so because they probably didn’t want to cross the line and have to dodge lightning bolts! ha!

When Expecting, Chic Preginistas Wear Louboutin Flats

loubitin

A little while ago,Sarah Jessica Parker‘s in the long-running hit HBO show  Sex in the City character, Carrie Bradshaw, made Jimmy Choo  and Manolo Blahnik the “it” shoes to covet and have.

Since then, we believe Christian Louboutin has taken the crown as the most coveted shoe.

Although, the designer is known more for his red bottom pumps, he also makes other leather goods like wallets, handbags, and clutches and other accessories. And more than just pumps, the brand also sells a good range of ballet slippers.

We mention this because they are perfect for that preginista that loves to stay fashionable and outfitted in the best and most coveted exquisite fashion items. When swollen feet and sciatia make pumps a no-no, enter your Louboutin Ballet slippers to save the day!

Here’s a curated list of our faves from our partners at Shopstyle.

 

Louboutin who? Jimmy Choo and Monolo Blahnik make a red carpet comeback

It’s probably safe to assume that Zuhair Murad made a splash at this year’s Academy Awards, outfitting many celebrity women including Anna Farris, Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Aniston among others.

Besides this design house’s red  carpet  success, I’ve noticed a resurgence of women wearing Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik pumps too this award season. The two lines feature low heeled and delicate architecture, and were once made popular by Sarah Jessica Parker‘s character Carrie Bradshaw on the hit HBO  series Sex in the City. She craved them and would forgoe eating and paying rent to get her hands on the coveted shoes. 
But with Christian Louboutin becoming a recent hit, the old faves of the late 90s had all but disappeared at high society events.
It’s refreshing to see more shoes with more sensible heights for moms and moms-to-be make a comeback!
