The Real Housewives love to make extravagant purchases, and NeNe Leakes may be leading the charge when it comes to spending boatloads of money on stuff you don’t really need. But hey, with success on reality and scripted television shows, NeNe clearly deserves a treat every now and then.
The reality star shared a photo of her latest pride and joy on her website, NeNeLeakesOfficial, and wrote, “Loving my Alexander McQueen charming clutch I carried earlier today! #fab”.
The bag in question is a famed McQueen box clutch featuring a coat of freshwater pearls in varying shapes, sizes, and colors. Though the clutch appears sweet and demure, the infamous McQueen skull on the top gives it some edge. The skull is decked out as well, with crystal eyes and a pearl-studded cranium, natch.
Based on the time of the post, we’re guessing that NeNe paired this bag with the unique dress she wore to ELLE's Annual Women In Television Celebration on January 22.
As you may have guessed by now, this McQueen gem comes with a hefty price tag. Though this pearl wonder isn’t as expensive as NeNe’s beloved Birkin she’s been carrying around for the past several weeks, the $8,300 price tagis nothing to sneeze at either. It’s a clutch for god’s sake! What can you fit in there, your phone and a pack of gum?!
Are you surprised that NeNe dropped so much money on a handbag? Tell us what you think below!
