Bravoâ€™s latest Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off, Fashion Queens premiered Sunday night.
The weekly fashion review show is hosted by Bevy Smith, former Fashion Editor at large for VIBE and lifestyle resource for The New York Times, Glamour, â€œand other publications that Iâ€™m sure would impress you.â€
She is joined by Derek J, famed stylist to the stars and Miss Lawrence Washington, hair stylist extraordinaire; both of RHOA fame.
â€œYou boys are giving me Easter egg fabulous!â€ Bevy quips at her co-hosts. Derek J is in a seafoam-colored pantsuit and Miss Lawrence is rocking a pink fur and thigh-high red Minolos boots. He calls his look â€œvintage,â€ but Bevy says, â€œif itâ€™s not over ten years old, itâ€™s not vintage, just old.â€ Yikes!
â€˜Giving Me Wifeâ€™
Cynthia Bailey took home top honors in the section strictly reserved for Housewivesâ€™ fashion reviews. They loved the menswear inspired pantsuit she wore to Peterâ€™s event.
Miss Lawrence picked Kenya Mooreâ€™s white gown as his favorite, and Derek J chose Porsha Stewartâ€™s dark brown dress. I think Derek is spot-on, Porsha looked great. According to him, she always does.
Miss Lawrence sympathizes with Sarah Jessica Parkerâ€™s decision to quit high heels. His knee hurts from years of wearing stilletos, but Derek J thinks the idea is blasphemous. â€œFlats are for home,â€ he says.
They also disagree on Andre Leon Talley, who is leaving Vogue after thirty years at the helm. Miss Lawrence calls him â€œthe iconic, legendary, old Queens who still reigns supreme,â€ while Derek says heâ€™s slumming. â€œI saw him with a jogging suit and crumbs on it with orthopedic shoes with velcro straps,â€ he said. Ouch.
They also pulled no punches when it came to the bad reviews. Miss Lawrence had a bone to pick with some of Phaedra Parksâ€™ style choices.
â€œBevy, you would look great in Herve Ledger, you are a perfect figure eight,â€ he says. â€œHowever, someone like Phaedra from Real Housewives of Atlanta? No maâ€™am, I cannot stand to see her in her Herve Ledger dresses!â€
