Social Media Reacts To Gizelle Bryant’s ‘RHOP’ Reunion Look
With The Real Housewives of Potomac recently taping their Season 7 reunion, Bravo unveiled the stars’ dresses to give fans a customary taste of what to expect.
These “Bravo Insider” photos highlighted all the women’s blue gowns, though Gizelle Bryant’s—of course—garnered extra attention from critics.
Fans Unapologetically Respond To Gizelle Bryant’s Outfit
Gizelle’s dress covered most of her body, including her forearms, hands, and neck. However, a leg slit, along with some embellished gems, spiced up the outfit. As her dress ran up to her neck, she opted to wear her hair up.
As RHOP fans are known to do, they proceeded to call Gizelle out for her look. Many utilized a useful clip of Karen Huger reading down her costar’s fashion sense, with one user noting that her commentary “will always be relevant.”

It was also speculated that Gizelle’s choice of dress may have been influenced by Candiace Dillard Bassett iconically reading her down earlier this season.

Another Twitter user opted to “fix” Gizelle’s dress by removing some of the gems, lengthening the leg slit, and editing in some low-cut cleavage. He also remarked that her original dress made Gizelle “look like a napkin ring.”
