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!

Shear & Glimmer on the AMA’s Red Carpet and Host J.Lo’s 10 Dress Changes (PHOTOS)

Sunday night was the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California hosted by Jennifer Lopez with intermittent announcement duties by Ciara who left little to the imagination in a well constructed Balmain dress.

As usual, we tracked some of the celebrity moms that we’ve “bumpwatched” in the past to check out what and who they wore on the red carpet or on stage.

Gwen Stefani performed “Used to Love You” but before, she walked the red carpet in a stunning sheer and panel Yousef El-Jasmi dress. Carrie Underwood won the AMA for Favorite Country Female artist and sang her hit song “Heartbeat” during the show. On the red carpet she wowed in an Ellie Madi dress, Greymer shoes, Kimberley McDonald earnings and rings by Kimberly McDonald and Anne Sisteron.

There was much shine from all the sequined dresses which dominated this year’s red carpet.  Paula Abdul, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato all did sequins as did our Bumpwatch alum Danica McKeller.

Shear with jewels. Shear with metallic. Sheer with lace.  It seems there were many ways to present shear.  The trend from last season has spilled over as we saw it on Ciara in Balmain, model Hannah Davis, who also presented an award, in Naeem Khan dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Anita Ko jewelry,  and Stefani while performing in Jean Paul Gaultier.

Jennifer Lopez must have won the award for most dress changes during a show as she wore a reported 10 dressed during the course of the evening. My favorite was her red carpet dress. Wow!

2015 Prime Time Emmy Awards Red Carpet and Winners

 

emmy awards 2015

Watching the red carpet to the 67th Annual Primtime EmmyAwards at Microsoft Theater tonight, I must say I was really loving all the creative and different silhouettes, daring cutouts and experiments with texture on the styles of clothing.

Early photos I saw revealed a lot of prom and pageant-like dresses, and very full skirts and structured boring looks we’ve seen before on the Miss Universe stage, but then when I began to dig deep into the photo galleries and I was wowed by Amy Poehler‘s midriff revealing black Michael Kors Collection dress with spaghetti halter straps. Grrrrr!

And January Jones‘ emerald Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit with a starfish brooch at the hip was to die for!

Kerry Washington did not disappoint this time in a silver metallic Marc Jacobs with futuristic cap shoulders, Casadei pumps and Harry Winston jewels. Love Love!

Mad Men‘s Jessica Pare brought out the color in her pink Monse halter dress, accented with Fred Leighton jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Many were nominated and several took home awards like Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won again for the 4th straight year in a row as the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Veep.

And Congratulations to  Viola Davis for her historic win as the first African American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in How to Get Away With Murder tonight. Bravo! She rocked this stage in a righteous twist-out fro complemented nicely in a white with black print Carmen Marc Valvo gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and Neil Lane jewels.

viola davis wins

Congrats also to Regina King who played a protective Muslim mother in the mini-series drama American Crime and for her role on that version of the series nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series of Movie!

She took her son Ian to the ceremony and acknowledged him in her speech for a win she really didn’t expect, as she explained to ET!

 

 

These were big wins given the fact that historically in the US, there are not that many roles written and cast for black women to play so they can outshine their contemporaries at the time and earn wins.

Very Cool.

primetime emmy 2015 2

King looked nice though the color and frame of the dress was underwhelming for her powerful and strong body. The back was banging tho. Owww!

Maggie Gyllenhaal did the ball gown thing in Oscar de la Renta with Fred Leighton jewels. I don’t have enough words for Heidi Klum‘s  dress and I found the fit of Claire DanesPrada dress a bit off for her tonight.

 

 

primetime emmy 2015 6

Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky brought some glam in Bibhu Mohapatra and Chopard jewels and Sofia Vergara did the usual old Hollywood glam vixen figure-hugging fishtail look. Seen it before. It’s her signature and works for her I guess but she really should change things up.

2015 VMA Awards Red Carpet & Show Roundup

vma 2015 fashion bellyitchblog.com

 

Tonight was another celeb-studded musical event at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums graced the red carpet before the event, took the stage and were nominated for quite a few awards.

Mega star Beyonce Knowles Carter was a no show even though she was nominated for 5 awards for her “7/11” Video (Best Female, Pop, Editing, Choreography, Video of the Year). She won only one for Best Editing.

Jennifer Hudson couldn’t make it either despite being up for the Best Video with a social message award for her song, “I Still Love You.”

On the red carpet, model Lily Aldridge stunned in a black Alexandre Vauthier couture gown with a plunging neckline, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Jen Meyer Jewelry earrings, Anita Ko bracelets, and an Edie Parker clutch.

Britney Spears showed mucho cleavage in a showgirls-esque gold sequined number with cutouts in the tummy.

Kim Kardashian West covered her bump in a long sleeve draped military style dress.

Her sis Kourtney Kardashian was giving up the sexy in a hot pink jumpsuit, fresh off of winning our 2015 Posh Mom Icon award.

Their family’s arch nemeses Amber Rose and Blac Chyna came dressed in matching nude outfits with cartoon caricture lettering featuring all the insulting names that people have called the duo who are headed for an MTV reality TV show this fall.

The show wasn’t without its dramatic moments, of course, including some toxic exchanges between show host Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj who won the Best Rap Video Award for video for “Anaconda“. It was the same video Minaj suggested was deserving for being up for the Video of the Year Award but was slighted because she felt the women featured in the video weren’t thin.  Taylor Swift assumed it was a slam against her given all the women in her Bad Blood video were pretty much rail thin and the two had a brief Twitter beef which reeled their fans in on it and was more or less squashed until Cyrus added her two cents during a promo appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cyrus said Minaj was “not nice”.  The rest is history and can be seen on Twitter but since we’re about promoting positivity by and among women, we’ll leave it at that.

Ciara showed off a new bob in a fringed black outfit and Law and Order‘s Mariska Hargitay made an appearance in all black while walking with the other members of “The #SwiftSquad” from Taylor Swift‘s “Video of the Year” winning video “Bad Blood.”

My fave look for tonight came from singer Tori Kelly who looked stunning in a a laced long sleeved top tucked  in a cute pair of high waisted shorts with a gold clutch and black bowed pumps, with tussled hair to complete the look. Her bronze sheer makeup was flawless. Yassss!

TREND: Florals by Dolce & Gabbana, GET THE LOOK

floral trend bellyitchblog.com
Florals are great to wear anytime but especially in the Spring and Summer months.

We spotted some of our diva-level Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums recently sporting the feminine pattern in sophisticated dresses and billowy peasant tops.

Jennifer Lopez wore a black and silver floral Dolce & Gabbana cap sleeve mini floral print dress with a matching D&G Sicily mini printed leather shoulder bag and white pumps at a recent event.

Beyonce, who is on active Bumpwatch, was seen recently in a billowy Lucy Paris floral peasant top with black trouser shorts and sandals. Late last month, the singer-songstress headed out in a Dolce & Gabbana knee-length dress that she accessorized with black Ray Ban sunglasses, a Stuart Weitzman Nudist Ankle Strap sandal and a nude Dannijo Lypton Chain detail cross body bag.
