Erika Jayne's"glitzy glam" for BravoCon 2023
Speaking with Erika in September, BravoTV.com got the scoop on the best places in Sin City for shopping, dining, and more. In addition, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills style maven revealed her plans to turn up on the fashion front.
"My outfits are always true to who I am," Erika shared with us. "In Vegas, it’ll be 100 percent. Over the top. Glitzy glam fun. Just like Las Vegas."
Erika also shared the Bravolebrities she was most excited to run into at the epic event. "It’ll be nice to see Kenya [Moore]," she shared of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member. "It was just nice [The Real Housewives of Dubai's] Caroline Stanbury and I got to meet and have a nice conversation backstage [last year]. It’s random."
Also on Erika's BravoCon wish list? "It’d be cool to catch up with Lala [Kent]," she stated of the Vanderpump Rules cast member. "It’ll be fun to just see a whole bunch of different people. And people you’ve not met."
Rachel and John Fuda prepare for BravoCon 2023
When we spoke with The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Rachel and John Fuda in September during New York Fashion Week, the couple had a few things in mind when it came to BravoCon 2023. For Rachel, it involved putting some thought into her outfits. For John, it was pretty simple.
"I just wake up, show up, and drink," John hilariously quipped during an exclusive chat with BravoTV.com. Rachel, for her part, revealed she was in the midst of "outfit planning," also taking a couple of beauty details into account.
"Skincare's always at the top," she shared. "But I'm more so planning the looks. That's what's happening right now. We're in Vegas and you have to rise to the occasion. Do as the people in Vegas do. Colorful, fun, or personality-[type] stuff."
Ubah Hassan's "authentic" BravoCon fashion
While Ubah was preparing for The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 reunion with her glam squad, she was also thinking about preparing for BravoCon 2023. "I'm so excited!" Ubah shared with BravoTV.com backstage ahead of the heated reunion with her castmates. On the fashion and beauty front, however, Ubah wasn't exactly preparing anything specific just yet.
"I have not prepared ... because I also want to be authentic. This is not my wedding. BravoCon is work for me," Ubah revealed. "I'm meeting people who are supporting me and they love to watch our show so ... I'm just gonna pull some stuff out of my closet. Maybe I might buy one or two things [for] a special occasion but really no ... I tell you — I wake up like this!"
Venita Aspen is making an unexpected style move for BravoCon 2023
In October, we also chatted with Venita Aspen, who noted at the time she was still "figuring out what the look or vibe should be," concerning her outfit plans.
"I still do the magazine flipping and the mood boarding and the Pinterest and saving all the inspiration. Then I pull it all together to see, ‘Ok, like, this is the look I’m going for," Venita shared with BravoTV.com. "This year, I really want to embody the ‘90s bombshell. The dark lip liner, the gloss, the fresh face of makeup, the sleeker hair, clothes are a little more baggy but still give off a good amount of, like, sex appeal."
The fashion influencer also noted that she was looking forward to putting together a "fun and different" style, considering how she likes to "[lean] on the preppy side of things" with her looks.
"It’s gonna be fun to do this and still be able to add my [preppy] little southern flare to it," she added.
Phaedra Parks Plans to "Dress to Impress" for BravoCon 2023
Married to Medicine newbie Phaedra Parks told BravoTV.com that her plan is to go all out. "I always dress to impress," she said. "I will be Slaydra, as usual. So, I will come in and slay the girls with fashions, accessories and hair and makeup. I'm gonna give them glam, Barbie. I'm super excited, though. I love to think about my outfits."
Dr. Heavenly's Fashion Plan for BravoCon 2023
Dr. Heavenly Kimes noted in an interview in the days before BravoCon 2023 that "I always come looking good. So I mean, I don't know who I'm wearing, but shoot, I'm wearing it.
Paige DeSorbo shows her shoe game for BravoCon 2023
Just a few days before the big weekend, Paige took to her Instagram Stories to share how she was prepping on the accessories front, taking a video of the various heels she picked out for the event.
"Bravocon shoe line up goin crazy," the Summer House cast member wrote over the Story which scanned her stylish stilletos. In the mix we were able to spot the likes of Miu Miu, Prada, Christian Louboutin, Steve Madden, and more, across numerous colors and styles.
In addition to metallic sandles, Paige also picked out some statement shoes with bedazzling embellishments and bows, also including chunky platforms and pointed-toe talons that evoked classic glamour.
Lala Kent shares where she shopped for her BravoCon 2023 outfits
During an October 30 Amazon Live, Lala revealed she went "all out" for her BravoCon looks this year, sharing that she procured her fashions at "the outlets."
“I’m going to be completely honest, I went to the outlets on my way to the desert, to Palm Springs. And this outlet is not like any outlet I've seen before," Lala stated during the stream. "They had like Gucci, Burberry, so all of my looks I spent a lot of money. My looks, I styled, and they will be brought to you by Balmain, Burberry... we went all out. And when I left I was like, ‘Why did I do that? Who do I think I am?’ Seriously, and then I put myself on a very tight budget after that.”
