Melissa Gorga Feels Like She Was Invited to Teresa Giudice’s Wedding Out of Obligation

Melissa Gorga has a history of wearing Envy-inducing dresses when she goes on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. When she appeared in the Clubhouse back in February, The Real Housewives of New Jersey boutique owner stunned in a bright pink minidress with gilded stiletto heels, and on April 11, she returned to the late-night talk show rocking a look that was pure gold. 

How to Watch

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

In an Instagram post, the New Jersey mom showed off her shimmering ensemble. She wore a body-con gold dress with lace-up sides and paired it with strappy, ultra-high sandals. Melissa’s RHONJ castmate Margaret Josephs nailed it in the comments: “The golden hour!!” she wrote. “You came to slay not play.”

To accessorize her look, Melissa stacked gold and silver bracelets on one wrist and wore oversize gold hoop earrings. The fashion lover tagged Australian luxury brand Bronx and Banco, which is one of her go-to labels for statement-making frocks

Alex Natoli did Melissa’s makeup, giving her bronzed cheeks, a glossy ballet-pink lip, and sultry eyes with gold and plum shadows. Hairstylist Olivia Halpin was the mastermind behind Melissa’s I Dream of Jeannie–style updo.

And let’s not forget this isn’t the first time the New Jersey native has shown up at the Clubhouse dipped in gold. Back in 2019, she wore a glittering wrap dress for a late-night appearance. She paired it with massive diamond hoop earrings, simple strappy black stilettos, and a curly coif.

Her off-duty looks tend to shimmer too. In 2020, she attended a beach wedding in a gold-flecked minidress. The glittering wrap dress had a V neck, an empire waist, and thin black straps.

To up the shine a little more, Melissa paired the dress with oversize hoop earrings and a diamond nameplate necklace. She also added strappy metallic heels, a sleek high ponytail, and a pop of color with a bright pink lip. 

In 2021, she went for the gold again, wearing a gorgeous glimmering dress for a summertime wedding. In a rose-gold hue, the floor-skimming frock had a high leg slit and cutouts on top. Melissa paired the look with clear heeled sandals.

Shine on, Melissa!
