We can only imagine the pressure Southern Charm-ers must feel while prepping for their first reunion. If you've tuned into any of the past four reunions, then you know that a lot goes down at this gathering — and as far as outfits go, the Charmers always bring their A-game. (Watch the video above to get a sneak peek at the rest of the SC cast members' looks.)
Before she took the stage, The Lookbook caught up with SC newcomer Ashley Jacobs and we got her to dish on her first-ever reunion look. Let's just say the ensemble isn't quite like anything we were expecting. In regards to fashion, the Cali native said: "Originally, I thought I was going to wear a red outfit, and I thought ‘ooo, that’s a little too bold and drawing too much attention.' So I thought I would do the opposite and go with ivory and white."
She continued: "With my white outfit, I was thinking of kind of going under the radar. You know when brides get married they were white because it's pure and innocent, which I’ve been anything but. So I thought maybe I could try to fool em’. It probably won’t work," she joked.
However, Jacobs did reveal that she’ll add a "little boldness and color" with her makeup. (Hint: She was rocking a bright red lipstick when we spoke to her.) As for her hair, Jacobs shared that it will be pulled back. "I was making jokes because I tend to play with my hair when I get nervous, so I said 'just put it away.' Sort of like with dogs when they put the cones on them and they can’t get to their head — that’s really what I need, just a big cone around my face. That’s what inspired this look, that I can’t touch it. Don’t be surprised if I’m still [playing with my hair], but I’ll catch myself," she said.
