Chanel Iman Opens Up About Morning Sickness While Glamming Up For Event + Tracee Ellis Ross Honored With ACE Award, Lupita Nyong’o Presents
Chanel Iman spilled deets on her struggle with morning sickness in her first trimester while attending a red carpet event. Meanwhile, Lupita Nyong’o presented Tracee Ellis Ross her ACE Award and #BlackGirlMagic ensued. Everything inside…
Well, hello there Chanel Iman and bump!
The Victoria’s Secret model dressed her baby bump in a bold Romona Keveža dress to attend the 2018 Fragrance Foundation Awards held at Alice Tully Hall inside Lincoln Center in NYC. While she looked amazing making her way down the carpet, Chanel revealed her first trimester into her pregnancy was hell for her.
“The first trimester was very difficult,” Chanel told US Weekly on the carpet. “I really struggled. I was super sick.”
Aww! That morning sickness struggle is SO real.
Chanel and her NFL hubby Sterling Shepard are expecting to welcome their new bundle of joy in August. It’s their first child. However, they still don’t know if they’re having a boy or a girl.
“I’m not sure if it’s a boy or a girl. I keep saying it’s one thing but I really don’t know," she shared.
Sounds like they’re going to enjoy the mystery before he/she makes their grand entrance in a few weeks.

Tracee Ellis Ross was set to receive an award at the 22nd Annual ACE Awards held at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC. And Lupita Nyong’o was on hand to present an award to another fashionista.
The ACE is the acronym for Accessories Council Excellence. The annual dinner recognizes celebs who floss accessories like jewelry, bags, shoes, and sunglasses like a boss, according to THR.
“Tracee always wears something that’s influential, but she does it with ease,” said Accessories Council president Karen Giberson. “She never does anything that’s too costumey — you find yourself thinking, ‘I could do that.’ She also comes across as being a real girl, and we love that. And we love what Tracee does for our categories.”
“I love a hoop earring,” the "black-ish" starlet declared. “Big, fat, small, round, drooping, oversized, hugging, encrusted — I love a hoop!”
To accept the Style Ambassador award, the fashion maven rocked a beaded sheer tunic pair with high waisted pants by Kevin Germanier. She finished her look with a white Tyler Ellis clutch, orange patent Christian Louboutin pumps and a pair of oversized hoops with matching rings by Lynn Ban. “And we have a nice orange lip, so it all ties together beautifully,” she said during her acceptance speech. Ha!
Lupita Nyong’o looked amazing in a bright yellow Carolina Herrera dress paired with a encrusted pineapple purse by Judith Leiber. The Black Panther star presented stylist Micaela Erlanger (below, right) with the council’s Style Influencer award.
Michaela is the mastermind behind all of the Oscar winner’s slay worthy looks during her awards season in 2014.
“Before Micaela, my accessory game left a lot to be desired,” Nyong’o said. “I would choose an accessory just because I liked it. Now for me, accessorizing and dressing is more like a puzzle; there are pieces to it. If you wear a particular shoe, then maybe you don’t wear those sunglasses, and that’s what I’ve learned from her. I’ve observed her at work dressing me. Watching her work is like getting a little view into her mind, why she picks things off her tray and puts them back down. Now I try to play the Micaela game every day when I get dressed.”
