‘Real Housewife’ NeNe Leakes’ Crazy Neon Dress Has to Go

nene leakesNeNe Leakes is a lot of things. She's entertaining on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was explosive on Celebrity Apprentice, she's a hell of a lot of fun to watch, and just a little bit egomaniacal. But where NeNe could use some improvement, perhaps, is in the fashion department. The reality start turned full-time actress is on the cover of Denim magazine this month and doesn't quite nail this color-blocking trend we've been hearing so much about.


The dress fits her like a glove, but from the neon yellow hair to the bright purple top to the electric teal bottom, I don't know where to start.

Well, is it a dress? Is it a skirt, shirt combo? And what is that fabric? Shiny spandex is nobody's friend. Nobody's.

The accessories are distracting, as well. The dueling warrior cuffs seem too heavy with the look, and the shoulder dusting earrings are very predicable. And the arm cut-outs, good grief the arm cut-outs. When is that trend going to go away already.

NeNe's got an exciting fall ahead of her -- she's got a part on a new sitcom, The New Normal, and I'm sure she's looking forward to all the perks that come along with being a Hollywood lady, so here's hoping that she takes advantage of the stylists out there and knows when to ignore bad fashion advice.

Anyone who comes up to you with a purple and teal leotard dress, Wonder Woman cuffs, and earrings the size of a Mini Cooper and says you should trust them should not, in fact, be trusted.

What do you think of NeNe's Denim mag look?
