As per usual, this season of Shahs of Sunset was full of some incredible fashion moments. Let's recap a bit, shall we? New mom Mercedes "MJ" Javid turned heads in Hawaii with an "aggressive" thong one-piece swimsuit, Mike Shouhed, Nema Vand, and Shervin Roohparvar pulled up to Vida's retirement party in full Vida-inspired threads (blonde wigs and lipstick included), and Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi channeled her moon energy in a glittery top paired with a blinged-out marijuana leaf choker. And get ready for more because the Shahs pals saved some of their best looks for the Season 8 reunion.
The Persian besties all brought their style A-game to the virtual sit-down with sexy, see-through ensembles, plunging necklines, custom tuxedos, fresh kicks, and of course, plenty of gold.
Keep scrolling to get the full scoop on their reunion style:
Destiney's inspiration was “Hedy Lamarr circa 1940’s jet-setting her way to the top. Living her best life and not allowing anyone to get in her way.” She told BravoTV.com: “She is me, I am her.” The Persian beauty channeled her inner “‘40s bombshell” in a vintage velvet and lace heart-shaped corset dress accompanied with layers of custom-made gold necklaces, rings, and bracelets from the AHHLOOO Collection. She topped off her look with voluminous Hollywood curls and a bold red-orange lip.
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi
GG brought "quarantine chic" vibes. Up top, the new mom rocked a see-through button-up blouse detailed with black polka dots and a bejeweled collar — but for her bottom half, GG went full quarantine mode with sweat pants and fuzzy socks. "I wanted to wear something comfortable but also semi-elegant," she told BravoTV.com. She topped it all off with a sleek, high bun and glowing makeup. "I played around with the updo a bit and laid down my baby hairs. It’s all about the edges, honey!"
Mercedes "MJ" Javid
MJ dazzled in a “simple, strapless, no fuss” white Calvin Klein dress, which she paired with clear Yeezy pumps and sentimental gold jewelry. “I wore three tiered necklaces: one from my mom, a solid 18k gold herringbone chain necklace, then my dad’s necklace, which he wore my whole childhood and then gave to me 10 years ago, which makes me feel ‘protected,’” she told BravoTV.com. She also wore a “Shams” necklace that she received as a Mother’s Day gift from her cousin this year.
As MJ put it, her reunion glam process was “pretty interesting!” The Persian stunner had a virtual glam session with makeup artist Darian Marie, who guided her through her makeup steps while hairstylist Brandon Liberati styled her hair in person.
The always dapper Mike went all out for his “rocker chic” reunion look with a custom tuxedo by Klein Epstein & Parker. “I spent hours at their studio, picking out the fabrics, buttons, and the lining of the jacket. I wanted it to be over the top and I think I succeeded!” he shared. Mike adorned his look with a custom gold chain featuring a rare coin from Iran that was handed down from his grandfather to his dad, and then to him. Girlfriend Paulia Ben-Cohen hooked him up with a touch of reunion makeup and he got a “fresh cut” for the virtual sit-down.
Nema’s “Four Seasons LA wedding chic”-inspired look featured a gray suit and floral button-up shirt by Ted Baker. “I wanted vibrant, upbeat, energetic, but sophisticated and classy,” he shared of his ensemble. “I also really wanted to reject the stigma that Persians only wear black. All Persians don't fit into one mold, and I wanted my outfit to showcase my individuality.” Nema topped his outfit with YSL sneakers and a Rolex watch.
Reza came dressed to impress in "ALL FENDI" including black pants, a logo shirt, and black kicks. He paired his luxe look with a white Versace blazer and layered gold chains. The real estate pro's outfit was inspired by Ralph Furley à la Three’s Company. "If RF was Persian, younger, and obsessed with gold!" he told BravoTV.com.
