The always-stylish NeNe Leakes loves to take risks when it comes to her fashion choices, and she’s only gotten more adventurous with her stylings in recent years — she’s a burgeoning television star after all!
After a whirlwind trip to New York City with her wonderful husband, Gregg, NeNe headed out west to Los Angeles and hit up ELLE's Annual Women In Television Celebration on January 22. The ritzy affair was held in West Hollywood, and while there the Real Housewives of Atlanta star rubbed elbows with the likes of Tracee Ellis Ross and celeb chef Giada De Laurentiis, what really caught our eye was her choice of attire for the evening.
As we mentioned, NeNe loves to take fashion risks, and while they usually pay off, her latest venture wasn’t as successful. It was a miss as far as we’re concerned, but we’ll let you judge for yourselves.
NeNe wore a long-sleeved black mesh dress with a beige slip underneath. The mesh was designed so that the pattern is slightly different and more open over her chest and nether regions — an interesting choice to say the least. The frock is certainly fashion-forward, but we don’t think it did anything to flatter NeNe’s curvy figure. Though the hem was slightly above the knee, the dress didn’t even show off Mrs. Leakes’ enviable gams!
Still, it sounds like NeNe had a great time at the party. “I so enjoyed all my fab girls last nite @ the Elle Women N Television event @TraceeEllisRoss @KekePalmer @mariamenounos,” she tweeted on January 23.What are your thoughts on NeNe’s ELLE look: Hot or not?
