Laura Perlongo on Being Free in Her Skin at VMAs, Bare Bump and all

Mom-to-be Laura Perlongo sent tongues flapping when showed up to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night with her bare bump revealed through an open army green jacket.

The fiancé of Nev Schulman,the host of MTV’s Catish, said she has gotten postive response from women who believe it is okay for a pregnant woman to dress sexy.

“There is so much pressure on women to look a certain way. That ‘way’ is hard to achieve even when you’re not pregnant. Be sexy, but not too sexy. Be confident, but wear something that fits our current standard of acceptable,” Perlongo told the website attn. “When it came to choosing an outfit for last night, I wasn’t feeling the pregnancy options that were out there — they made me feel like a big blob or were tight and constricting. That is, they made me feel more self-conscious than just being myself and wearing my skin. And yeah, I wanted to rep my fellow pregnant ladies (s/o to the baby bumps).”

While the people on social media had a lot of mixed opinions about the look, Perlongo said attendees of the event were more accepting.



“It was overwhelmingly positive and supportive. Kim Kardashian loved it,” she added. “Other pregnant women and women with children came up to me with praise and congratulations throughout the night. Good vibes all around. I don’t regret the decision at all.”

Her fiancé loved it.

“Whoever says pregnant and sexy can’t go together, you’re wrong!” Schulman said of his bride-to-be. “Over the past eight months I’ve watched my fiancée carry and care for our child and transform into the magical goddess​ she is now and to me this is the most beautiful she has ever been. I couldn’t be more proud of and inspired by her.”

Here’s Our 2016 MTV VMA Run Down

Did you catch the MTV Video Music Awards held at Madison Square Garden in New York City last night, August 28th?

It was heavy on performances including a lengthy set by our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Beyonce, who sang many songs off her latest album “Lemonade”

She also won the biggest award of the night, Video of the Year, for her song “Formation.”

Two of our Bumpwatch alums, Kim Kardashian West and Alicia Keys introduced performances.

Meanwhile, Keys tributed Martin Luther King, Jr.on the 53rd anniversary of his “I have a Dream” speech. She read a poem that ended in a song while looking flawless in no make up. 

Kim showed off her super slim down shape in a sheer curve hugging slip dress.  

Other alums, Heidi Klum, Amber Rose, Jennifer “J Woww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi also attended and looked great on the white carpet. 

Britney Spears did a superb job during her comeback performance, singing her hit song “Make Me” with rapper G Eazy. 

And one more thing: we also noticed that black and very sheer was a trending look on the carpet as well. 

2014 MTV VMA: Kelly Rowland and Celebrity moms Rock the Red Carpet

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are going on right now tonight at The Forum in Inglewood, California and we spotted some of our fab fantastic Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms rocking the red carpet

Queen B – Beyonce is up for several awards, the most tonight. She looked hot in black jeweled Nicolas Jebran gown, accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and Christian Louboutin heels.

Caliente! Jennifer Lopez is one bad mama! She was sizzling in a silver jeweled Charbel Zoe gown with several intricate cut outs. And check out that slit. The look was styled perfectly with some jeweled Jimmy Choo pumps and Norman Silverman jewels and a silver python Thalé BlancTalia Mini Fastueux’ clutch.

Gwen Stefani was very youthful in a hot pink and black pants suit from her own l.a.m.b. couture line with black pumps. Work it mama!

Kim Kardashian is giving us major face and showing off the girls again in this tri-colored beaded cape and mini dress with a plunging neckline with hawt gladiator ankle booties.

Kelly Rowland was glowing in a cream colored flowing ball gown accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Amber Rose was “OMG” worthy in this jeweled dress with jeweled panty and bra covered in cascading jeweled chains. Totally channeling Rose McGowan, circa 1998 MTV VMAs. Saucy!

Finally, model Jourdan Dunn who we featured in 2009 when she was pregnant with her first child at age 19 looked super cute in a Balmain bandeu top and floor length skirt. Love the slick bob!
