Jen Shah isn’t here for Disney villain comparisons.
The “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star’s dress for the upcoming Season 2 reunion set social media abuzz on Thursday, with many fans likening it to “The Emperor’s New Groove” baddie Yzma’s purple feathered frock.
But when a “Housewives” fan account suggested the cartoon character served as Shah’s “fashion inspiration” for the occasion, the reality star didn’t hold back.
“It was actually @iamcardib but I wouldn’t expect you to know that,” Shah retorted, as captured by a Comments by Bravo screengrab.
Indeed, Shah appeared to select the exact same Jean-Louis Sabaji gown seen on Cardi B at the 2021 American Music Awards last November.
Crafted from violet-colored velvet, the look features bold feathery shoulders and dozens of chandelier-style crystal drops at the neckline.
It’s worth noting that plenty of fans also picked up on the similarities between Shah’s style and the “WAP” rapper’s, but their comments weren’t exactly positive.
“That cannot be the same dress. Jen’s looks like the Fashion Nova version,” one person quipped on Fashion Bomb Daily’s comparison of the two gowns. “Looks better on Cardi,” another agreed, while a third wrote, “Jen’s stylist did her wrong.”
Shah’s not the only member of the “RHOSLC” cast to get flak for her reunion fashion choice.
“I’m going to report Meredith to PETA for skinning Muppets,” one viewer joked on Instagram of Meredith Marks’ teal feathered Christian Cowan suit, while another remarked of Heather Gay’s navy velvet gown, “I love Heather but she’s dressed like the mother of the bride.”
“Was the theme ‘dress your worst?’” a third person asked of the group, while a fourth wrote of the lineup, “This might be the worst in ‘Housewives’ history.”
