#NYFW: Rachel Zoe X Honest Beauty {Get the Runway Looks}

 

This is New York Fashion Week.

The iconic week of runway shows, parties, glamour and glitz gave a couple of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Rachel Zoe and Jessica Alba, a perfect opportunity to collab.

For Rachel Zoe Spring 2019 Collection show held on Tuesday night, Alba’s new cosmetic line, Honest Beauty, made up the models who walked the runways to Zoe’s show.



“I am so excited to have Honest Beauty partner with the Rachel Zoe Collection since both brands are all about achieving an effortless, chic style” Alba shared about the look that her lead makeup artist  Monika Blunder created.  “I especially love the look that she did on the eyes using the Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Palette. The palette is foolproof and has versatile shades that are perfect for taking your look from Summer to Fall.”

Honest Beauty lead makeup artist Monika Blunder offered some deets on the look she gave the girls.

“I wanted to create a fresh-faced, Parisian inspired look utilizing monochromatic pink shades that are subtle and allow your skin to shine through,” Blunder said of her inspiration for the look. “I’m obsessed with how chic the lips are in this look – I just added the Honest Beauty lip crayon to the center of the pout and blended outward to achieve that effortless, flushed look.”

If you want to create a similar look, here’s how it broke down:

FOR THE SKIN:

  • Makeup Remover Wipes ($6.99)
  • Elevated Hydration Mist ($13.99)

Beyonce HBCU Tribute Headliner and Celeb Moms at Coachella 2018

Nicole Richie, Beyonce Headliner, Christina Milian, Behati Prinsloo and Alessandra Ambrosio at the 2018 Coachella mMusic festival.

Many of our celeb moms headed to Empire Polo Field in Indio, California this weekend for the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

 Nicole Richie  showed up in white to her  Revolve x Nicole Richie House of Harlow x Urban Decay lunch. Behati Prinsloo was there looking fly in Alexander Wang zip-front pants, Vans and a bucket hat. Alessandra Ambrosio showed up looking fab and outfitted to the free spirit theme that is common among attendees.

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner along with Kylie Jenner and her bestie Jordyn Woods headed down.  

Whitney Port and Rachel Zoe were photographed in an iconic all white pic. Loved Christina Milian‘s Boho dress too!

Beyonce headlined by opening up her set in a regal gold and black caped outfit that resembled the regal African queen Nefertiti but then she quickly stripped from her opener fit to a custom Balmain athleisure look complete with a gold cropped hoodie with her initials embezzled in jewels on the front, denim cutoffs and shimmering high high toots.

Before it was over, mom to Rumi, Sir and Blue Ivy Carter had a few costume changes including a PCV leather leotard, and she brought her husband Jay Z out to do their duet of their 2006 song together “Deja Vu” and her sister Solange to perform “Get Me Body.”

There was also a Destiny’s Child reunion as our other alum Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined Queen By for a few of their hits, “Lose My Breath”, “Say My Name” and “Soldier”.

Her set was an ode to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) because it featured a large marching band, drum and majorette line, reminiscent to the types you’d see performing during a homecoming game at Howard, Flordia State or Grambling State.  (edit: There were actual FSU bandmembers playing). There was even an interlude when she acted as the prophyte initiating a new line into her fictional fraternity “B A K” — which could stand for Beyonce and Knowles or, Beyonce Phi Knowles or Beyonce Delta Knowles (couldn’t tell if that was an A, Delta or Phi symbol)  who knows. The mock probate was entertaining!

A few of the dance moves during the set include “stepping” which is a traditional hand, clap and stomp movement common in Black Greek step shows with roots in African dance, ritual and customs.

Beyonce was supposed to headline at the festival last year, but she postponed her appearance after she announced she was pregnant with twins.

Here is Beyonce’s complete set per JustJared.com‘s snoops. See the entire performance HERE!

Santa was good to us 🎄🎁 such a blessing to spend the day with the people I love the most @arianabiermann cried over her presents (she does every year) she truly is so humble @briellebiermann asked me, "why I don't hide her big gift anymore?" Kroy and I had the kids do a scavenger hunt outside, inside and all around to find out we are going to the beach for the week, My hubby always puts such thought into my gifts! Anyone that knows me knows the beach is my favorite place in the whole wide world and he got me a necklace made out of authentic sea glass that has been smoothed and tumbled by Mother Nature ❤️ and a couple rings with diamonds too! I always cry on Christmas overwhelmed with so many blessings. I never lose sight of the true meaning of today. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all! Sorry we didn't do a Christmas card this year, or last year, or the year before or ever BUT I promise next year it will get done!! PAJAMAS are from @littletrendsetter we wear a new theme every year from them they have the BEST ones

Jessica Alba celebrated the impending birth of her third child with producer/director husband Cash Warren on Saturday, December 9, 2017.  The actress and business woman shared some photos of the event on her Instagram account and some vids on Snapchat.

“Had the most beautiful baby shower today,” she captioned a “boomerang” photo of herself with balloons wearing a sleeveless black dress, adding her gratitude to friends who organized the showere.” I felt so loved and I ❤️u all to pieces. ?”

The afternoon tea event was celeb studded and held at high tea at the  Ladurée hotel in Beverly Hills, California, and thrown together last minute by her mom in law and friend, Baby2Baby founder Kelly Sawyer Patricof.

Attendees include family and friends and celebrity designer and stylist Rachel Zoe and supermodel Molly Sims who munched on tea sandwiches, chef served delicacies and petite desserts at the posh venue.

Our Faves from the Tequila Casamigos Halloween Party

Amal Clooney hosted a party by husband George Clooney’s tequila company along with their business partner celeb couple Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber who throws the annual Tequila Casamigos Halloween Party.

Each year, the event is attended by an A-list of celebrities.

The 1970s/Studio 54-themed event featured several other of our fave celeb mamas we’ve “bumpwatched” in the past including: Kim Kardashian-West with one of her BFFs Jonathan Cheban dresses as Sonny and Cher.

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was there showing off her unbelievable 6-pack abs! Wowz. Molly Sims and Rachel Zoe attended wearing Mettalic gold 70s-inspired outfits.

The event was held at  the Old Tower Records spot in Los Angeles, California.

“[We] serve a lot of Casamigos and everyone just kind of lets loose and has a great time,” Gerber  told Entertainment Tonight‘s Lauren Zima of how he pulls in the biggest crowd in Hollywood, year after year. “It’s really the one time everyone gets to let loose and play dress up, and pretty much everyone is friends. It’s all part of the House of Friends…. Everyone looks forward to that one night of the year.”

Jessica Alba Hosted East Hampton Launch and Charity Event

Third-time mom-to-be Jessica Alba hosted an event last Saturday, August 5 with her company, The Honest Company as part of a collaboration and new partnership with her stylist team at the Great and the diaper and newborn essentials collection for impoverished women charity  Baby2Baby.

At the East Hampton event, stylists and designers Emily Current and Merritt Elliott celebrated the launch of their upcoming limited-edition diaper collection for The Honest Company under a fun and quirky  decorated Sperry tent.

Our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Molly Sims and Rachel Zoe were there as well.

“Em, Mer, and I have been working together for a while,”  Alba explained to Vogue magazine. “They have been my stylists for a few years now. They [also] do a collection for Pottery Barn, they started a brand called Current Elliott, and then a second brand they started is called The Great. We did a lot of sharing about being women entrepreneurs and having young families. We all have kiddos, and we talked about how do you try and do it all. Often, we feel like we’re compromising something, and we can’t do it all. We talked about how powerful would it be to collaborate and do something really cool and give back. [Our friend] Kelly Sawyer runs Baby2Baby, which is now a national diaper bank program that gives back the basic essentials to families in need, things that we really take for granted—everything from diapers and wipes to lotions to backpacks and shoes. Things that we probably don’t think twice about, but there are millions of families in this country that literally have to choose between food or diapers or they reuse dirty diapers throughout the day.”

Fun times!

Also, her two daughters Haven Garner and Honor Marie were in attendance  at the event which raised money for the no profit on which Zoe, Sims and Alba are board members.

I Killed The Summer Box of Style on the Beach; Subscribe and Get Yours

box-o-style

As promised after my unboxing and review of the items that came in the Summer 2017 Box of Style curated by the fashionable editors of the Zoe Report and celebrity stylist-turned designer and reality TV star and TV host, Rachel Zoe, I wore the items during a recent beach trip.

The top quality pieces were a hit!

I think I wore the Helena Quinn kimono everywhere and turned lots of heads on the beach and pool side doing so. I have also been rocking those cat eye sun shades by Raen consistently as the Panama sun hat from Sole Society. Again, I think it is very cool that the items inside are valued at over $400 though the box itself only costs $99 per quarter. . (You get a $50 discount if you order for the year.)

Powerful Working Women Have Work Nurseries; How to Build Your Own

powerful-working-women

This week, First Daughter Ivanka Trump shared a photo of herself holding her baby Theodore while taking a business call in the White House. The image drew tons of love and praise and jeers and taunts. Some called it an example of feminism and others called it hypocrisy. Politics is a tricky game and these days, they are at a fever pitch. But politics aside, the topic of balancing work and motherhood is an ongoing hot bed issue.

Trump and Marissa Mayer both infamously announced plans to take short maternity leaves after having their babies but each soon learned that it is very difficult to have it all, and they reversed course. Fortunately for each of these women, they are the boss and therefore, they have tons of options.

Mayer, for example, built a nursery alongside her office so she could have easy access to her infant, whom I believe she was breastfeeding at the time. It was a controversial move because it came around the same time that the ex-CEO of Yahoo! banned telecommuting for her workers. Many women (and men) with children loved that option so they could work and care for their little ones.

My mom watches my baby sister’s 10-month old daughter while my sis works and my mom reports the baby not wanting to go to her mom after work. Having a baby nearby for those early years are crucial for bonding and the emotions of having your baby prefer a nanny and caregiver over his own mom could be devastating for any mother.

nursery office

I really did what another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Rachel Zoe, did for the women who works for her. Zoe said in a blog post on her The Zoe Report website that five other women in her company were expecting in 2014.

“I found out they were all expecting within the span of a couple months (something’s in the water here, I swear), and my immediate thought was: We need to open a nursery. We might not be styling out of my garage anymore, but I still think of my staff as family,” Zoe wrote. “I wanted to create an environment where these new mothers wouldn’t have to make a choice between career and motherhood. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to grow my company from just a few people to more than 40 while having my kids (and my husband) by my side, and so I knew I had to do everything in my power to give my staff that same luxury.”

It was a great move by a woman in power who wanted to empower other women too.

321c70d4d0feffc0f2b40f2f6621c1bd

“My days are filled with an assortment of photo shoots and school pickups, business meetings and play dates, styling sessions and grocery runs. I am launching style boxes and boxing school lunches.” she penned. “In the words of Penny Lane (eternal muse to my editors), ‘It’s all happening.’ And if I can bring my babies to editorial meetings (it happens), fashion shows (guilty) and designers’ parties (most fun ever), why can’t my girls have their babies close by too?”

Zoe opened a nursery in her West Hollywood office that December right next door to her studio. She said she thought all companies ought to consider the same.

“Sure it required us to make additional investments—the physical space, the insurance required to protect everyone, the furnishings—but what we are getting in return is invaluable; the working mothers at our company can improve and grow our business without having to sacrifice spending precious time with their babies at such a crucial stage in their mother-child relationships.”

Bravo! In the course of two years, my eldest son had two different teachers check out after having their babies and my youngest lost two teachers who opted to stay home after having their little ones rather than return. Nearby nurseries could be a great alternative for those who want to continue their craft, passion and work and be near their babies.

And for those, like me, who work from home, a nursery office could be a great alternative. Here are the elements of creating a fab home office/nursery.

Start with a space-saving crib that isn’t too bulky! You can get one that coordinates with the furniture already in your office or redecorate to have one cohesive theme.

Fill the walls with colorful and attractive wall art to lift the mood and keep things vibrant and alive!

Finally, accent it with  a colorful or ‘in-theme- rug where baby can play while you work. A toy chest to house rattles, stuffed animals and educational toys would be a great added fixture.



Good luck!

origami stroller

It’s been a long while since I last did my most expensive baby stroller post and since then the market has exploded with some amazing strollers.

One of the top strollers known and widely loved by tech aficionados is the  4moms Origami Stroller. It’s loved because it take the  stress out of traveling about with your kid. I mean it folds and unfolds automatically when you press a button and comes equipped with tech features like a built-in phone charger, thermometer, mileage counter, and LED headlights. If you had any doubt that this is the Rolex of strollers, the Origami Stroller even charges itself as you walk!

It’s on the pricey side but if you can afford it you’ll join the likes of a bunch of celebs who have been photographed out and about with their kids in them. about $850!

Kourtney Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Tia Mowry, Kim Zolciak, Bethenny Frankel, Melanie Brown, Denise Richards, Kim Zolciak, Neil Patrick Harris and Mario Lopez all have been seen pushing their tots in it.
