Beauty Secrets Revealed: Candiace Dillard Bassett

If the winter chill’s got you down, allow Candiace Dillard-Bassett to turn up the heat — in your feed, at least. In a February 18 Instagram post, The Real Housewives of Potomac singer announced that she was here to “bless your timeline” with throwback snaps from her “magical time” in the Bahamas. And if bikinis equal blessings, Candiace certainly delivered on her promise.

In her slideshow, which was set to a certain bop called “Insecure,” the singer shared photos from an impromptu photo shoot by the pool. In the snaps, she’s wearing a teeny leopard-print string bikini. Mind you, this isn’t the first time Candiace has stunned in spots. In 2021, she showed up for her interviews in a look that she referred to as a “leopard situation.” 

In the Bahamas, Candiace took her fierceness to the next level with stiletto nails that channeled talons. She completed the look with oversize sunglasses, a cherry-red pedicure, and a glittering gold bangle bracelet. A former pageant pro, Candiace knew how to work every angle of the look, and she has the photos to prove it. 

When she wasn’t posing at the pool, Candiace piled on the sparkles for a performance at a swanky lounge. Her slideshow also included photos of herself in a black bodysuit decked with sparkling fringe. She capped off the look with fishnet tights and black booties.

Tagging SLS Baha Mar and Baha Mar resorts, Candiace wrote, “Thank you all for having me to open your live concert series at [Skybar Baha Mar]. A time was haaaaad.” 

For her closing shot, Candiace showed off an aerial view of the crystal-blue island sea. But of course, nothing could compete with the scenery she’d already shared. 

Candiace’s leopard-print moment is just one example of her eye-popping vacation style. Earlier this month, the RHOP cast member brought “[Tom Ford] Barbie” vibes to Los Angeles. At a Grammy party, she wore a pink crushed-velvet turtleneck, Lycra leggings, and platform heels. Her blonde locks added dollish flair to her beauty look. 

Barbie was just the beginning. At another event held over Grammy weekend, Candiace wore a sequin-embellished black column dress by Alice + Olivia. Her classic glam included a bright-red lip and a loose updo with curled tendrils flowing down in front.
