“Basketball Wives L.A.” Season 1 Reunion Fashion Round-Up

“Basketball Wives L.A.” Season 1 Reunion Fashion Round-Up

VH1 Basketball Wives L.A. Reunion Show went down tonight and, after John Salley introduced the ladies, he went right in! First topic up for discussion was Laura Govan and Malaysia Pargo’s  fight from Episode 1.  As interesting as it was to rehash all that drama… I was more distracted by the fashion! The ladies stepped out in a variety of looks – so let’s get right into it!

Malaysia shut it down completely in this Gucci Leather Dress from the Fall 2011 RTW Collection [$4,700.00].  The merlot leather dress with bow detail at the neck features long sleeves and a belted waist.  Whew, chile, face is beat to the gods and she’s wearing Gucci Mary Jane Platform Pumps along with her favorite “bargain-find” gold hoops we discussed at the Three Beats Launch Event Party earlier this month. I love that Malaysia went with a hairstyle different than her signature sleek tresses.  These soft curls framing her face are gorgeous! [Get Malaysia’s BBWLA Reunion Hairstyle].  Malaysia was styled by Mieka Blackman-Reese of The Socialite Styling.

Jackie kept it simple and classic with a high ponytail, fitted black sheath dress with fur stole, and a black platform pump. She also appears to have lost some weight since the season ended, which looks great on her!

Draya Michele went with a more modest look for the evening with the AllSaints Embellished Python dress [$495]. The snake skin inspired shift dress features geometric central and mottled organic motifs in autumn tones mixed with coral and petrol highlights. I love that she’s sparkling – can’t go wrong with that!  She finished the look with Christian Louboutin Bianca Sequin-Coated Leather Platform Pumps.

I’m a little disappointed that Draya opted for her signature loose waves as I wish she’d switched her hairstyle up for the reunion show, but I guess she’s rocking with what’s comfortable, and that’s cool.

Imani Showalter is pretty in ASOS’ black and pink color-block Sheer Mesh Flash Panel Body-Conscious dress [$134] by Rebecca Torres that we love on her.  I’m guessing the reunion special was taped the afternoon of TI’s Power and Beauty Book Launch party at the end of October as she was spotted in the dress there.  Imani styled her look with neon yellow nails and crimped waves around her face.  The shoes are dope and it looks like they’re the heel-less Giuseppe Zanotti Metallic Leather Curved-Wedge T-Strap Sandals.

Gloria’s makeup is amazing as well and I’m a fan of the chunky silver statement necklace she’s rocking.  She went with a custom-made Mariesa Irene  strapless printed blue mini-dress with a sweetheart neckline. Very pretty look for you, Gloria!

Laura Govan slipped on an olive green Carven Side Drape Dress [$960] with a fab pair of Sergio Rossi Crystal Cutout Sandals.  Hair and makeup are fierce, so two snaps for that girlfriend!

I love that each of the ladies wore her own unique dress style, quite unlike the Miami “Basketball Wives” Season 3 Reunion which appeared to be sponsored by Hervé Léger’s camp.  Now you know I love me a good Hervé, but when the whole panel is rocking the same bandage style dress it does lose it’s appeal a bit, no?

Part 2 of the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion will air next Monday, November 28.  I will be tuning in! Will you?

  3. Carly Puckett says:

    Thx – I’ll update the post! Right, masculine is the word i was looking for but didnt want to say (lol).

  4. Malaysia and Draya’s looks are my faves. Seriously Yakini, there are SO many things wrong with Jackie’s ensemble. It’s just… wrong.

  5. Malaysia looks SO pretty. Those curls on her was such a good move.

    Ugh! That high ponytail has GOT to go.

    And yes, I’m so glad they’re not ALL wearing Herve. Like, let’s be forreal here. LOL.

  6. Glamamom says:

    I’m getting that python dress. GORG

  7. Hmmmmm……I dont know If I like any of those looks quite honestly. But I DO know Jackie looks a cheap mess. LOL

  8. Tami says:

    Jackie jacked my style! I wore something like this at the Top 25 Women of Atlanta remember Yakini! lol

  9. Sheena says:

    Laura is looking mighty masculine, her shoulders look very broad. No to the dress. Jackie’s dress is just all wrong… the fur, the pleats, the length (lack thereof). I need Imani to add some volume to the top of her hair. Everybody cannot get away with the flat top. Okay, I’m done, lol.

  10. Dr. Reginia says:

    Malaysia looks great and so does Gloria. Draya is expected. Poor Jackie Christie and why bother saying anything about Imani. Laura Govan is channeling Tina Knowles in a bad way.

  11. Nia/Chic Working Mom says:

    I will be watching for sure. Everyone looks fab but I don’t care for Laura’s dress. I think she was going for a vintage look but its not working. Lol
