Bethenny Frankel is practically a poster woman for the "work hard, play hard" mentality. The Real Housewives of New York City alum is always tackling new ventures, from real estate deals to relief work to hitting yoga poses on the beach, and she's got the wardrobe to match every move. Which is why it's no surprise that when it came time to celebrate Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Bethenny brought out an outfit that perfectly captures her business-meets-pleasure take on style.
Bethenny shared a slew of playful pics fresh from the Big Easy as she and buddy Maria Menounos celebrated Mardi Gras. But in true Bethenny form, she sidestepped plastic beads and low-key tees for a more professional effect. Perhaps she's coming straight from a meeting or maybe she's just inked another deal, but either way Bethenny wins the award for the most polished partygoer.
Her black, red, and white abstract patterned knit dress featured a ribbed knit waist and was just colorful enough to qualify as festive. She added a classic black overcoat and burgundy patent leather heels to complete the ensemble. Naturally, it wouldn't be a Mardi Gras moment without a purple, yellow, and green feather boa topped off with an itty bitty party hat.
Structured-yet-sexy dress? Check. Practical top coat? Check. Hilarious accessories? Done and done.
