The Look for Less: Nene Leakes on 'The New Normal'
She perfects curvy-chic
After five seasons, Nene Leakes is the only original cast member left on Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta." And for good reason. Guaranteed to bring the entertainment (one-liners abundant), she further caught the eye of not only Donald Trump (she vied to be his "Celebrity Apprentice"), but also television writer/producer/director Ryan Murphy -- also known as the man behind the ever-popular hit shows "Nip/Tuck," "Glee" and, more recently "The New Normal" on which Nene stars.
As Rocky, the pestering but fierce assistant to a television producer, a gay man (played by Andrew Rannells) who is expecting his first child -- via surrogate -- with his partner (played by Justin Bartha), Nene gets to often go toe-to-toe with the surrogate's equally in-your-face grandmother (played by the ever-entertaining Ellen Barkin) -- and she always looks flawless in doing so.
In fact, in the show's first promo pics, Nene, as Rocky, is seen wearing a $450 leather sleeve trench coat by Michael Kors, paired with tuxedo striped slacks. But we can do you one better.
Shapely figure unignored, Rocky never shies away from form-fitting styles, bold colors, patterns and prints, or accessories that accentuate. Above, get the look for less.
