The African grey parrot has stolen nearly every scene he’s appeared in, even if he has not necessarily made the best first impression on a few of the ladies. The beloved Samuels family pet has clearly made his mark on the world—as he’s become the topic of conversation more than once on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and captured the attention of Bravolebs like Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Just when it seemed as though T’Challa’s life couldn’t get any more fabulous, he went ahead and rocked the best outfit we’ve ever seen on a bird. 

In an instantly-iconic Instagram post shared on October 22, Monique revealed that T’Challa is now dipping his talons into the world of fashion. Dressed in what appears to be a chambray hoodie with a beaded drawstring detail, T’Challa looked very handsome. 

“Y’all ain’t ready for @tchallasamuels fashions,” Monique captioned the photo. “Who said birds can’t have winter fashions?!” 

And of course, because no respectable outfit post is complete without fashion credits, she added, “Loving his cute fit from @avianfashions.” 

If you simply cannot handle T’Challa’s fresh new style, you are not the only one. RHOP cast member Karen Huger, who has appeared to have some mixed feelings about the parrot this season, weighed in on the look in the comments section.

“Monique what the hell?” Karen wrote, adding a shocked emoji. “Stop it @tchallasamuels I’m [green check mark emoji] [crying laughing emoji].”
