New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
New photo roundup time! Melissa Gorga threw a “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Season 7 Premiere Shopping Event at the “envy by Melissa Gorga” boutique in Montclair and was joined by her daughter Antonia.
Coco Austin, La La Anthony, Somaya Reece and more turned out for the VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
Kyle and her husband Mauricio Umansky were soaking up the sun in the Bahamas during a celebrity golf event (and also celebrating his possible sale of the Playboy Mansion, I’m sure!).
Joanna Krupa attended the 2nd Annual Art for Animals Fundraiser Evening for Eastwood Ranch Foundation.
Also spotted out and about in NYC: Bethenny Frankel and new bestie Carole Radziwill, as well as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out with their daughter North. Bethenny was also seen apartment hunting with her new beau and Million Dollar Listing New York’s Fredrik Eklund.
TGIF, reality fans! We’ve got a quickie fresh photos Friday roundup for you! Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky enjoyed a little time together at the Ninth Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic Dinner. Kyle had a fashion “hit” with this floral dress, in my opinion! Not 100% sure I love the shoe choice, but overall she looks great.
Also looking good this week: Brandi Glanville. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star stepped out for the Associates For Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies’ annual Mother’s Day Luncheon at Four Seasons Hotel with her former co-star Carlton Gebbia and her (stunning) daughters. Brandi toned down the makeup and it made a world of difference.
The Costume Institute gala 2016 is just getting underway and so far the MET gala fashion has been a big snore for the most part. Andy Cohen was looking dapper as Sarah Jessica Parker’s date. She initially wasn’t going to attend but he was thrilled when she got inspired and changed her mind.
Kanye West dressed in his Monday through Sunday uniform: torn jeans and a denim jacket. He decided to jazzy it up with some bedazzling, though, so there’s that. And he put in his blue contacts because he’s edgy like that. Kim Kardashian wore silver – and I’ll admit that it’s better than what I envisioned, albeit pretty boring. Kris Jenner and Kylie Jennerboth wore Balmain, of course.
Yolanda Foster’s daughter were in attendance, too. Bella Hadid stole the show – she was stunning in all black. Gigi Hadid brought along her former boybander beau – his jacket was fun and got into the spirit of the theme without being douchey – we’re looking at you, Kanye.
You can see the pics in the gallery below – as well as some other random pics that aren’t MET gala photos.
NeNe Leakes was invited to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner – and she was front and center for the pre-parties, the after-parties and the dinner itself. We have all of wardrobe changes in the gallery below.
Bethenny Frankel and Eric Stonestreet turned out to support Eric’s Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the opening night party for “Fully Committed” on Broadway.
