Miranda Kerr’s Floral Maternity Looks are So On Brand

Australian model Miranda Kerr has been doing an excellent job repping her organic skincare brand Kora Cosmetics in her maternity style.

I was flipping through the Bellyitch Instagram followers and noticed the former Victoria Secret model wearing a lemon floral dress with white low heels and a white box handbag out and about. A few days later, she was in a short off the shoulder ruffle floral dress in the happiest of places: a sunflower patch!

Kerr and her husband, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel are expecting their second child together, just 10 months after welcoming their first, son, Hart.

Kerr has a 8 1/2-year old son named Flynn with her ex husband, actor, Orlando Bloom. She infamously croons to the music of Bloom’s current flame, singer Katy Perry!

This Australian News Mag Article About Motherhood Ruining Miranda Kerr’s Figure Got Me Heated

Opinion; by Jay Jay Ghatt

I was online and an article from an Australian news mag, news.com.au,  scrolled through my feed with an article discussing Australian super model Miranda Kerr, and specifically her comments in a recent Marie Claire article that are supposed to be about body positivity.

Kerr gave birth to her second son, Hart, six months ago, with husband, Snapchat founder, Evan Spiegel.

However, to me, the news.com.au article and especially its headline and Kerr’s statements in her Marie Claire interview do nothing to affirm the confidence of women who are mothers. Absolutely nothing in my opinion!

I am not sure the intent but they both missed the mark.

Let’s go through it, shall we?

At first blush, the headline reads that Kerr is “Ok that motherhood ruined her figure.” Oh really?

First of all, motherhood did not ruin her figure.  That is a very off-the-mark suggestion.

I am pretty sure motherhood enhanced her life and I’m also certain it gave her new curves. In  many cultures and countries around the world, curves are very much appreciated by many women and men worldwide.  Some women I know personally work hard to acquire curves.  Also, look at the Kim Kardashian phenomenon, for example. Note all these Instagram models that are getting butt enhancements, injections and wearing padded pants or photoshopping curves into there photos!

In that sense, then, motherhood made her figure better! It did not “ruin” her body, at all, necessarily!

Second, the headline casts a negative light on pregnancy and relays why a lot of women experience pregorexia and deprive themselves and their babies of much needed nutrients while pregnant over fear of gaining weight. This headline feeds into that very harmful notion of pregnancy being something that will mess up one’s body and figure.

I cannot stand it!

Inside the Marie Claire piece, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel who has a 7-year old son named Flynn with ex Orlando Bloom says “It’s OK, I’ve got a mum-bod and it’s fine!”

There is a very negative connotation behind the term “mum-bod” in that quote. This sentence relays that she is content with having a body associated with mothers. Ugh.

Society continue to tell women who are mothers that there bodies are unacceptable, not attractive and should be something we work hard on changing, altering, or improving.

The News.Au site feeds into this horrible notion when it states of Kerr, “even when she was heavily pregnant, Kerr showed off her curves for photographers.”

“Even when? “ “Even When?”

Hear me now: Women with or without having a baby bump have curves and take photos and have photos taken of them. Having curves is not a reason to not be worthy of being photographed!

I really hate this article! It’s so mean!

Then Kerr doesn’t add much to the convo by being quoted saying in that Marie Claire article, “I don’t mind. It’s all part of it. I took nine months – well, 10 months – to grow a beautiful child and it might take 10 months to feel good in a swimsuit again.”

You shouldn’t need a size 0 figure or body to feel good in a swim suit. It’s not a body positive article at all.

That’s all I have to say about this topic but there is no wonder women are not supported in so many aspects of their lives, before, during and after they join motherhood.

Media and major influential figure internalize and spout out so much toxic positions.

Ok. Off my high horse for the day! Have a great week all!

Let’s continue the conversation. I can be found everywhere in social media  @Bellyitch on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook!

 

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

Celeb Baby Bumps Making Red Carpet Rounds This Award Season

Last Night, Chrissy Teigen looked stunning in silver sequins while attending the 60th annual Grammy Awards in New York city with her husband John Legend. She isn’t the only expecting celebrity or (celeb partner) who stunned during this year’s Award Season.

Miranda Kerr was fab in black while  at a Golden Globes After Party.  So was Orange Is the New Black star Yael Stone at the SAG Awards but not in black but sunny yellow! Yael and her husband Australian actor Dan Spielman are expecting their first child, Daily Mail reports.

Kerr and her husband, Snapchat founder Evan Speigel are expecting their first child together. She and ex-hubby Orlando Bloom share a son named Flynn.

Fuller House star John Stamos kissed the bump on his Model fiance Caitlin McHugh while walking the SAG Awards red carpet. This will be the first child for them both.

 

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.

Miranda Kerr Announces She is Expecting with Her Snapchat Founder Husband

We need to start asking if all these Victoria Secret top models have a pregnancy pact.

Right after Bar Refaeli welcomed her second child and as Behati Prinsloo awaits the birth of her and Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine‘s second child, in comes Miranda Kerr to announce that she is expecting.

The gorgeous brunette shared that she and Snapchat founder Evan Speigel will welcome their first child together six months after they tied the knot. The couple famously abstained from sex  until marriage.

This will be her second child. She has son Flynn with first husband actor Orlando Bloom.

Back to Speigel, can we also give it  up for Tech geeks landing the hottest eligible bachelorettes? Tennis Champ Serena Williams is engaged and has a daughter with Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian.  Here is a long list of More!

12 Times Celebrity Moms Posed ‘Glam Squad While Momming’ Photos in Social Media

img_6918

Alas, it looks like it now officially a must-do trendy thing for working moms in Hollywood to do: Pose for the official “momming while being serviced by a glam squad” photo.

And…look, Avatar 2 star Zoe Saldana is the latest to join the club!

 

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress posted a photo on her Instagram account of her tending to her infant son, Zen, while getting primped and polished for some red carpet event, perhaps.  “You do what you have to do to be there….  #workingmom” she captioned the photo in both English and her native Spanish.

Before Saldana did it, the likes of Audra McDonald, Molly Sims, Miranda Kerr, P!nk, Terri Seymour, Ali Landry, Alyssa Milano, and Jessie James Decker have all share social media photos of themselves in the throws of dolling up as a working mom in Hollywood.

728x90-1
Gisele Bundchen may have been the unofficial mother  of this genre of photos. When she did it in 2013, the Victoria Secret model she caught a lot of flak for those who said she was being vain and using motherhood to call attention to herself — not just her then-one-year old daughter Vivian Lake.

giseleb

The Brazilian Supermodel’s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and “glamity” aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially. Aaaah humbug!





Shameless actress Emily Rossum joined in the fun of criticizing Bundchen by posting a parody of Bundchen’s photos by copying it to a tee using a doll. Okay, Emily. Sure.

img_6916

But we are able to recognized the value to the image despite what the critics say. In the past, in tinsel town  (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.

As we’ve shared before, motherhood isn’t halting opportunities and production can and do work around a star’s pregnancy. In recent years, many celebrity parents are showing their social media fans that they don’t let motherhood interfere with their work either. They can do both.

Again, since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like LilyAldridge, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.
