The grande dame of Potomac, Karen Huger, knows how to turn heads when she walks into a room. During The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 6 reunion, she flaunted a gorgeous pink dress and bright pink heels that made her outfit noticeable from every angle. In the Bravo Insider video above, Karen talked about what inspired her look while getting ready backstage.
“I was thinking Jessica Rabbit, but we also thought pink Barbie doll so we’re doing a combination," she said. To create this dreamy mashup, Karen's hair and makeup were fashioned after Jessica Rabbit's, while her gown and shoes were inspired by Barbie.
Karen's makeup (done by makeup artist Tatina Ward) consisted of gorgeous pink sparkly eyeshadow that matched her dress, as well as long, bold eyelashes that accentuated her eyes. The mom of two completed her peachy makeup look with light pink lip gloss and a French manicure. Karen's hair was done by hairstylist Steven Thomas, and featured what he called in an Instagram post, "deep waves for the QUEEN." With a similar style to Jessica Rabbit's iconic look, Karen's hair flowed beautifully down one of her shoulders.
As for her outfit, the RHOP castmate wore a short pink cocktail dress which was made by Houston designer Chasity Sereal. The form-fitting material was created to highlight Karen's gorgeous curves, while the bright fuchsia color and long, feathery train gave the gown unique touches. Karen posted an Instagram picture that featured a detailed description of the dress from the designer herself. Sereal noted: "There’s clusters of embellished beading that consists of matte and shiny sequins and one-of-a-kind glass beads. The glamorous beading cascades down the right side of the dress, mixing into the side train which is adorned in over 3,000 ostrich feathers."
Karen finished off her outfit with what she called her "very, very pink" Jimmy Choo heels and large diamond earrings. Pretty in pink, Karen explained, "I'm showing a little leg this season — quite a bit of leg. When you have it, you should show it."
