Reality Stars Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out at BLEND Showroom: Laura & Gloria Govan, Draya Michele, Malaysia Pargo & More

Last night celebs, models, fashionistas, editors, and designers alike flooded stores in NYC for the 4th annual Fashion’s Night Out.  There are always an abundance of parties and soirees to enjoy, but I spent much of my evening at Suite 55’s BLEND Showroom Pop Up Shop, featuring designs by Red Engine, Hapi by Hapiru, and Blush.  The event was hosted by “Basketball Wives L.A.’s” sister duo Laura and Gloria Govan, and many of our favorite reality starlets showed up and showed out in their Fashion’s Night Out finest!  Let’s get into some of their looks!

“Basketball Wives L.A.’s” Draya Michele was just as cute as she wanted to be in the grey and gold embellished Prestige Dress by Dominique Auxilly and red suede Christian Louboutin Daf Booties.  The sleeveless bodycon mini dress features black mesh over nude power net with hand sewn gold buttons.  She is styled by celeb wardrobe stylist “Scoot3rsofly.”  Her cast-mate Jackie kept it pretty and sophisticated in a tailored white jacket with black skinny jeans and a fly pair of Christian Louboutin Zebra Print Daffodile Glitter Platform Pumps.  Jackie is gearing up to present her Spring-Summer 2013  line at a fashion show Saturday and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the collection.

Hostesses for the evening, Laura and Gloria Govan, were serving us sexy meets edgy all night long!  Laura’s red fur stole and Christian Louboutin Blue Yolanda Strass & Spike Pumps are giving me life, and Gloria showed off her enviable curves in a burgundy tank and steel grey bodycon skirt by Hapi by Hapiru, and Giuseppe Zanotti Goldwave Sandals.  Check out pics of their fab shoe game in the gallery below!

Friend to the blog and “Basketball Wives L.A.’s” Malaysia Pargo was her usual gorgeous and sweet self last night in a black two-piece fringed ensemble by DramatikFanatic, gold toned jewelry, and matching Christian Louboutin pumps.  She is styled by celebrity wardrobe stylist Felipe G.


I loved meeting the newest addition to “Basketball Wives L.A.” Brooke Bailey, who stunned in “The Sleek” Leather Jumpsuit paired with a Cheetah Jacket from Sorella Boutique, Christian Louboutin Alta Bouton Peep Toe Ankle Boots, a Chanel bag, and black Yomegz statement necklace with Zelle Couture Bracelets  from QLOAK Showroom. Fierce!   Brooke is styled by celebrity wardrobe stylist Hollywood Larry, who was super cool and showed mad love to Reality TV Fashion last night! Always great to put a “face” to a Twitter screen name.

A few of the “Love & Hip Hop – New York” ladies came out to support as well!  I enjoyed spending time with Olivia Longott, whose signature chunks of blonde throughout her gorgeous tresses made me miss my ombre blonde look from yesterday!

As always, Latina singer/rapper Somaya Reece was beautiful in a Roberto Cavalli Geometric Python-Print Dress and pink platform pumps.  Her white and black  pixelated python print frock features cap sleeves, a V-neckline, and bodycon silhouette.  So cute. Love Somaya as a blonde!

“Love & Hip Hop New York’s” Erica Mena was also in the building, clad in Hot Miami Styles’ Black Teal Cut-out Sides Long Sleeves Dress inspired by the Gucci Spring 2011 Cutout Black & Emerald Green Silk Harness Dress.  Erica’s colorlbock bodycon dress features a low V-neckline, cut-out sides, and long sleeves with cuffs.

I also had fun chatting with stylist/designer Alisa Maria Drake, who donned a [sold out] Karen Millen Metallic Shift Dress in black and pewter/silver.  Alisa’s tailored sleeveless shift dress has contrasting metallic and black panelling and a faux leather neckline.

Fashion’s Night Out was a blast this year and it was fun spending time with some of my favorite reality star gals as they gear up for Season 2 of  “Basketball Wives L.A.,” which is set to premiere on Monday, September 10th.  Vh1 cameras were rolling throughout the night, so I’m guessing we’ll be seeing a few bits from the night featured this season.  Will you be tuning in?!!
