Carrie Underwood Debuts Her Baby Bump in a Floral Jumpsuit

Leave it to Carrie Underwood to follow her adorable pregnancy announcement with an equally adorable on-stage baby bump debut. The country crooner, who announced last week via her Instagram account that she and husband Mike Fisher are expecting their first child together, showed off her pregnant belly for the first time Saturday night at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. Underwood took the stage at the event in a floral jumpsuit by Katherine Feiner that perfectly showcased her tiny belly.

Based on Undrewood’s on-trend sartorial choices in the past, we’re sure this will only be the first of many stylish maternity outfits, and we can’t wait to see them! Until then, check out Underwood’s best looks ever in our gallery, plus see more chic celeb moms-to-be!

September 5, 2014 @ 10:18 am

Here’s everything you need to know about what happened yesterday at New York Fashion Week, while you sip your morning coffee.

The celebs are back. New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 is in full swing, and the celebrities are out and about at the shows (in their most fabulous ensembles, of course). Fashion Week favorite Jamie Chung was a stylish addition to the front row at BCBG, where a carpet-inspired collection made its way down the runway. Read the story.

Fashion is getting weirder–and we like it. Fashion news director Eric Wilson navigates through the “increasingly strange, but eternally fabulous world of runway shows,” in his Front Row diary. He kicked off the season with a trip to Coach to check out new designer Stuart Vevers‘s collection. Read the story.

Psychedelic polka dot nails and candy-inspired neon accents had us mesmerized backstage at Honor. As did other moments that we captured exclusively at the shows. See the photos.

 

 

 

 

6 Reasons We’re Excited About the Toronto International Film Festival


September 3, 2014 @ 10:10 am

Canada, we’re coming! The annual Toronto International Film Festival kicks off Thursday, Sept. 4, and Team InStyle is heading up north to be on the front lines of all the action. The city basically transforms into a mini-Hollywood for 10 days, complete with oodles of movie premieres, an influx of stars, tons of eye-catching red carpet looks, and, of course, amazing parties. Here’s what we’re looking forward to most:

1. InStyle HQ at Storys

We’ve dispatched our editors to get the scoop straight from the stars, who will all be visiting us at our pop-up portrait studio at the historic Storys Building in the heart of the city’s downtown area. Photographer Jerome Corpuz will be snapping shots of celebs like Naomi Watts and Melissa McCarthy of St. Vincent, Jennifer Garner of Men, Women & Children, and so much more (get a first look at his portraits on Instagram @instylemagazine!). Plus, we’re throwing a party for all of our favorite TIFF-goers at the Windsor Arms Hotel. Make sure you get the latest news on news.instyle.com and follow @instyle on Twitter for updates.

2. The Oscar Buzz Has Already Started

The festival is where the Oscar race unofficially begins—last year we got a first look at Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years a Slave for example—which makes it all the more fun to check out this year’s new lineup of buzzworthy flicks. The ones topping our must-see list include Foxcatcher with Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, The Theory of Everything with Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, Wild with Reese Witherspoon, and The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley.

 

3. You Will See Directorial Debuts from Some Really Cool People

Chris Evans (yes, Captain America himself) premieres his first movie Before We Go on Sept. 12, a romantic film about a man and woman who meet for one epic night in New York City. Plus, Jon Stewart goes behind the camera for Rosewater, which tells the story of a journalist who was imprisoned after an interview he conducted during the Iranian elections. This is the film Stewart took a sabbatical from The Daily Show for, and early reviews say it will have a tremendous impact.

 

4. There Will Be Laughs Too
St. Vincent is Bill Murray’s newest movie, in which he plays a curmudgeon who befriends the son of Melissa McCarthy’s character and teaches the little guy the ways of life. TIFF is so excited about a new BM flick, the fest created an entire Bill Murray Day on Sept. 5 to coincide with the premiere. Then, Adult Beginners stars Kroll Show‘s Nick Kroll, a yuppie who crashes and retreats to the home where he grew up. (Rose Byrne and Joel McHale also star.) Plus, Chris Rock’s Top Five about a comedian-turned-actor trying to figure out his next project stars Gabrielle Union, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, and Tracy Morgan, in addition to Rock, who wrote and directed.

 

5. The Ensemble Movies Have Some Really Great Casts
Last year’s epic ensemble movie was August: Osage County, which turned out Oscar nods for Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. This year, there are ensembles just as exciting, such as This Is Where I Leave You (Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne), Men, Women & Children (Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Emma Thompson), and Cake (Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington, William H. Macy).

 

6. We Predict the Stars Will Bring It with Fashion
We expect our style radars to max out with so many gorgeous stars hitting up the festival, including Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, Keira Knightley, Jessica Chastain, Anna Kendrick, Salma Hayek, Naomi Watts, and more. Plus, Armani is the official sponsor of the festival this year, for the first time ever, so if there is an Armani outfit overload, you’ll know why.
