Take a Tour of Melissa Gorga's Boutique

Melissa Gorga’s style is always super put-together—after all, she’s mentioned how much she’s been inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s signature locks and fashion-forward choices in the past—and we can always count on The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom for some seriously exciting outfit inspo. Just check out her boutique! Currently, on vacation in St. Maarten, the designer has been living it up in the sun, even sharing a fun look at her beach style in a cheeky one-piece swimsuit.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

But after that gorgeous photo, it seems Melissa is embracing a simpler style—one more suited to the island vibe. In a new Instagram picture posted yesterday, she looks absolutely stunning in a picture that shows off her long hair way curlier than we’ve seen it in a long time. The loose waves perfectly frame her face while the highlights match her bronze skin, and her sunglasses and clothes are beachy perfection.


“Curly hair don’t care when in St. Maarten,” she captioned the photograph, along with the hashtag #natural. And honestly, she looks so good, we wonder why she doesn’t wear it that way more often. Funnily enough, sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is also on a beach vacation in Jamaica, showing off her sexy style in some seriously impressive all-black outfits.

It totally makes sense why Melissa would go for a curlier look on an island, though: It’s so much more low-maintenance, and the wind will let the curls just do their thing without getting ruined. After all, when you’re spending vacation with family, the more time spent hanging out together and the less time battling it out with a hairdryer, the better, right?
