The RHOP Cast’s “Unexpected” Season 8 Reunion Looks Exude Smoldering Elegance (PHOTOS)

The Real Housewives of Potomac cast members dazzled in “classic” black gowns with stunning embellishments for their Season 8 sit-down.

We weren’t ready for The Real Housewives of Potomac cast’s Sesaon 8 reunion looks.

For the occasion, Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Dr. Wendy Osefo, Mia Thornton, and RHOP newcomer Nneka Ihim brought out all the glamorous stops with an array of stunning black styles, all with their own unique, dazzling touches.

Gearing up for a dramatic sit-down with Andy Cohen, the Potomac ladies first brought the drama with their epic fashions, wearing glamorous black gowns that featured various stunning embellishments. Though every cast member opted for a floor-length dress, they all put their spin on the style, with high-leg slits, plunging necklines, smoldering cutouts, curve-hugging silhouettes, dramatic corset bodices, sheer paneling, and more.

We were also blown away by the RHOP Housewives’ head-turning accessories and glam, with unique jewelry, sky-high heels, and gloves, gloves, gloves!  Gloves had a particular moment at this year’s reunion, with Ashley, Candiace, Nneka, and Wendy all wearing a version of a glove, with lace, sheer, velvet, and elbow-length styles making it into the mix.

Moreover, all the women turned up the volume with their hair and makeup looks. We saw everything from sleek straight locks to sexy curls to blunt bobs to a champagne blonde side-swept pixie cut from Karen. The women were also sure to give their all-black styles playful pops with glimmering metallic eyes, pink pouts, and various manicure colors, including red and cream.

“I’m in a league of my own — I think the other ladies feel the same,” Ashley told while getting ready backstage, teasing that her look was “sexy, elegant, [and] unexpected.”
