This weekend and last a few of our past celeb mom features and faves showed out and showed us that age isn’t anything but a number. Singer Monica Brown, international lawyer Amal Clooney and model and actress Christie Brinkley were photographed and/or spotted out and about in fierece boots, hot pants and super gorge accessories.
Each women, aged 37, 40 and 64 respectively could easily pass for a decade or two younger based on their youthful figures, style and flawless skin.
While Clooney, who is also married to director, producer, actor and philanthropist George Clooney, is usually seen in conservative coats and A-line dresses, the mom to twins arrived to an event this weekend in Alexander Wang shorts,over Alexander Wang leather pants, topped by a feathered and embroidered Valentino jacket. She finished the look in a pair of leather boots.
Monica has been on tour and showing off colorful, fabulous looks in her carefully and perfectly styled Instagram page and it was no different about a week ago when she wore white thigh high feathered boots under a long sleeve denim dress with a long plaid duster tied around her waist.
Meanwhile, 64 year old Brinkley was seen out and about in a super cute Gucci logo Light Felted Cotton Sweatshirt and toting the It Bag, Mrs. Thom striped pebbled leather tote by Thom Browne and rocking vicious pair of red patent leather Gianvito RossiLevy 100 ankle boots.
Work it ladies! Show these younger women how it’s done!
Toya Wright celebrated the impending arrival of her second child at a baby shower in an Atlanta private residence this past MLK weekend.
It was a reality TV show reunion as some Our blog faves and bumpwatch alums Monica Brown, Monyetta Shaw and Rasheeda attended. Other stars of Atlanta-based shows Shamea Morton from Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta Quad Webb-Lunceford from that same network’s Married to Medicine.
The event featured personalized candy apples, candy bar and Rice Krispie treats and more. The theme was “Showering Reign”, a take off of the name she has selected for her daughter, though in one recent post, she referred to her baby as “Reignbeaux“, phonetic spin on Rainbow with a very unique spelling.
Wright also used the occasion to introduce the public to her beau and the baby’s dad Atlanta sports manager Robert “Red” Rushing. Up until this point, she had elected to conceal his identity. Secret’s out now!
If the baby’s name will be Reignbeaux, this will be the second celebrity baby Rainbow in recent years because The Girls Next Door alum Holly Madison‘s first child is also named Rainbow. Reign is also a bit popular recently among celebrities. Kourtney Kardashian‘s son is named Reign and that is the middle name of Lil Kim’s daughter Royal Reign.
Wright announced her pregnancy last September with a very creative scripted video featuring her daughter Reginae Carter with ex husband rapper Lil Wayne.
Oh and h/t from YBF, we learned that she also had a second shower with her fans. Nice! Here are photos shared by attendees:
Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Monica Brown’s children won the celebrity kids costume contest in our book!
The theme was ode to classic horror films and a half child dressed as a character from one of those well-known and watched films.
The R&B singer’s 4-year old daughter Laiyah was that creepy doll Annabelle.
Her sons 12-year old Rocko was Jason from the Halloween movie franchise…
…and 9-year old Romelo went as Chucky from Child’s Play and Monica herself was that frightful scary clown Pennywise from It!
Hubby NBA Milwaukee Bucks Shannon Brown diverted from the family theme and dressed as the character Anthony Curtis from the pop culture iconic Dead Presidents movie.
Laiyah had a second scary costume as a zombie princess
We loved the interesting selections our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums wore on the red carpet last night at the 2015 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. As usual, we’re doing our rundown on the designers who outfitted the ladies who walked the red carpet.
Kelly Rowland rocked a black asymmetric feathered mini frock by Lever Couture which featured a mock turtleneck and billowy sleeve cascading from the sleeves with slick back hair. It was a daring and bold move.
Amber Rose came hand in hand with her BFF Blac Chyna, both Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums. Each wore matching white suits and bustiers from lingerie designer La Perla. They even shared a kiss on the red carpet to celebrate the US Supreme Court’s decision which opened the door for gay couples in all states to marry.
Christina Milian also arrived in white. The reality TV star, actress and singer came decked out in a jeweled halter jumpsuit made by Erevos Aether and paired with Ruby Stella jewels and Jimmy Choo sandals. Cayooot!
Ciara made another fab choice by arriving in a plunging neckline Wes Gordon sheer dress made of embroidered metal, accented with minimal jewels and Stuart Weitzan pumps. She arrived with her new beau NFL Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Brandy went with her signature mini dress with a flare in this grey and black Michael Costello color block dress with pink pumps. Love the hair!
Monica looked regal in this flowing Stéphane Rolland Couture cape gown. Simply Stunning!
Lil Kim looked amaze balls as well while performing during the Bad Boys tribute. She popped out of a hole in the stage to the glee and delight of the audience.
Kristin Cavallari‘s second pregnancy with her husband Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler reminded us that many of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums are married and/or partners with professional athletes.
Like Cavallari, who is a shoe designer and TV host, Gisele Bundchen is also married to an NFL quarterback, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
It’s always interesting to note the height difference with some pairs, like: Adrienne Bosh
and her husband Miami Heat
NBA player Chris Bosh
actress Hayden Panattiere
and her fiance Heavyweight boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko
, and Savannah Brinson
and Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA player LeBron “King” James
(in article header).
Scandal‘s Kerry Washington keeps her relationship and marriage to hunky former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha secret but when spotted out, they both look adorbs together, as do Kim Zolciack-Biermann and her husband Troy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. Though, the very gorgeous Biermanns are very public as can be seen up and down Kim’s Instagram page.
And the “other” footballers (soccer) from across the ocean include Caroline Berg Eriksen
and her husband Norwegian Premier League
football player Lars-Kristian Eriksen
, and the very fashionable and chic A-List couple Victoria Beckham
and her retired football star spouse David Beckham.
Representing the Hockey League are Hilary Duff and her Canadian professional hockey player estranged hubby Mike Comerie (whom she is currently divorcing from) and Carrie Underwood with her NHL Nashville Predators hubby Mike Fisher.
Finally, Monica Brown and her ex NBA star hubby Shannon Brown have one of the most endearing relationships and a wonderful blended family. Same with Evelyn Lozada and her hubby LA Dodgers Major League baseball star hubby Carl Crawford.
Beautiful people all around!
