Who is Marlo Hampton? [Fashion Round-Up]

Who is Marlo Hampton? [Fashion Round-Up]

Folks have been buzzing about the “new housewife” who will make her TV debut on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in a few weeks. I made mention of her a couple weeks back when we were caught in the same Hervé Léger dress. However, according to Sheree, Phaedra, and Kandi on “The Wendy Williams Show” last week, Marlo isn’t so much a “cast member” as she will be a recurring character on the show.

Apparently the Atlanta socialite, philanthropist, and boutique owner was romantically involved with NFL player Charles Grant, which qualifies her as an “unofficial housewife”… but that’s neither here nor there.  Let’s talk fashion! Whoever the girl is, no one can dispute that she’s got style. According to Marlo, her savvy fashion sense started early on.  She says of her own style, “Even as a young girl growing up in St. Petersburg, Florida… I loved wearing dresses, and I loved completing them with straw hats emblazoned with daisies – always stockings and always my hard-bottomed dress shoes rather than the more comfortable rubber-soled shoes my classmates wore… It is also when I learned that accessories can be transforming” [Simply Marlo].

I turned to fashion/lifestyle blogger and former talk show host Tammie Reed, who is always on the scene at fashionable Atlanta events, for a few more images of Marlo.  As always, Tammie didn’t disappoint!  (Be sure to check out her blog for the full event recaps).

So what do we think of Marlo’s fashion sense? And how do you feel about her (unofficially) joining the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”?

      Hmmm, I think she is a boutique-owner/business woman/socialite who is cool with some of the housewives and perhaps landed on the show because she is always on the scene and around, to the point where she was made a regular character. *shrug* Just assuming. I guess we’ll find out more once she makes an appearance on the show.

    I liked the last outfit. It’s amazing how she and Nene went from beefing over Charles to almost best girlfriends tho.
