Phaedra Parks has never slacked in the style department, and yet, her latest ensembles are some of her best. A few recent highlights: the head-to-toe Versace getup she donned for her cameo on The Real Housewives of Dubai and the ultra sexy cutout gown she wore to The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club premiere party. Not to mention she's been more playful than ever with her hair. On Ex-Wives Club, Phaedra's fabulous hairstyles ranged from long blonde waves to short black bobs. On Instagram, she's even sported turquoise curls.

"I love the ability to change my look with just a matter of, you know, changing my hair," The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum told As for how she selects a hairpiece: "It depends on the outfit and, really, how I'm feeling that day." 

It seems there's a new lightness to Phaedra's overall sense of style — and she would agree. "It's evolved because I'm more comfortable with who I am," she explained. "I'm free to be who I want to be." Referencing her recent divorce (or rather divorces) from ex-husband Apollo Nida, she added, "I'm not married, so I don't have to answer to any man, you know?"

Always one who has a way with words, Phaedra summed up her newfound fashion freedom best: "I only answer to myself and God — and God doesn't ask me about what I'm wearing."
