Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City has been jam-packed with shocking, jaw-dropping moments. Arrests, religious trauma, cults — we’ve covered a lot of ground. But the only thing that is, perhaps, more shocking than federal agents descending on the parking lot of Beauty Lab + Laser is the fashion choices for the season 2 reunion. Fans of The Real Housewives don’t agree on much, but one thing that everyone can universally agree on is how bizarre these fashion choices were.
With no coordinating color scheme, the ladies all stand out for the wrong reasons. It’s no wonder that Mary M. Cosby chose not to show up. There are velvety textures, blues, greens, evening gloves, feathers — it’s just a lot. However, Jen Shah is not open to criticism on her fashion choices for the reunion. Instead, she’s clapping back at fans dissing her purple, feathery ensemble.
One fan posted a meme of Jen’s reunion outfit comparing her to Eartha Kitt’s character Yzma from the animated film, The Emperor’s New Groove. “Clearly Yzma from Emperor’s New Groove was Jen’s reunion fashion inspiration,” the account quipped with a side-by-side comparison of Jen and Yzma.
When you see the comparison, you have to admit that it’s pretty funny. Both costumes are purple and decked out with dramatic feathers around the collar. And if Jen Shah is Yzma, that means that Stuart Smith (AKA Stu Chains) is Kronk. Pull the lever!
Unfortunately, Jen doesn’t seem to be laughing about the comparisons to Yzma. In a screenshot captured by the Instagram account Comments By Bravo, Jen clapped back at the creator of the Yzma meme, clarifying that her fashion inspiration was not the 2000’s Disney villain. She wrote, “It was actually @iamcardib but I wouldn’t expect you to know that.”
As E! News reported, it turns out that Jen Shah’s reunion dress is the same dress that Cardi B wore while hosting the 2021 American Music Awards. But, that’s just not as memorable as Yzma’s look from The Emperor’s New Groove. Either way, Jen has a lot more to be concerned about right now than what fans are saying about her reunion fashions. Her March court date is swiftly approaching, and last month, a judge denied her motion to dismiss her fraud case.
