How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Potomac on Peacock or the Bravo App.

In a June 2022 snapshot, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member took to social media to show off one of her most stunning makeup looks yet, wearing glittery gold eyeshadow, black eyeliner, and a shimmering pink lip. Her gorgeous tresses were styled into a high half-up ponytail with long, voluminous waves and face-framing pieces.

“Turning me into a Darby Barbie slowly but surely,” Ashley captioned her photo, giving us the high-octane glamour we didn’t know we needed.

Speaking of Barbie vibes, Ashley recently celebrated her 35th birthday with a truly jaw-dropping dress, sharing an incredible video via Instagram soundtracked to Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night” from the Barbie movie.

Let’s break down Ashley’s smoldering birthday style: 

Ashley Darby’s Birthday Dress 

“What a night!! Thank you for bringing in 35 with me!” the mom of two captioned the June 9 Instagram video, in which she first strutted down the hallway of her home in Arlington, Virginia, wearing a head-turning multicolor strapless dress. 

The sexy sheath, which had pastel blue, yellow, and pink colors, featured a large chest cutout that bared plenty of cleavage and significant side cutouts that showed off parts of her midriff and back. While Ashley’s dress was ankle-length in the back, the front featured a criss-cross pattern that barely covered her body, showing off plenty of leg in the process. 

The “Coffee and Love” singer accessorized her sizzling style with an oversize pearl-like necklace and gold-and-pearl-studded hoop earrings. Beige strappy heels further elongated her legs. 

As for Ashley’s glam, she had hairstylist Corey to thank for her long, tumbling ombré caramel curls, while Makeup Machine gave her gorgeous smoky purple eye makeup and a dusty pink lip color. 

Further in her caption, Ashley added how much she “cherish[ed]” her friends and family for the celebration, which also included an incredible-looking burgundy cake with gold lettering. Holding the cake in the video was Ashley’s RHOP castmate Gizelle Bryant, who was also sure to show off her moves for the fun video clip.

While Ashley loves to get all glammed up, she’s also a lover of natural beauty

Earlier in June, Ashley wrote in a candid Instagram Story, “Glam is so fun. Loving your natural self is amazing too.”
