Vancouver’s real housewives are back – for season two! This night, the glam girls gathered at the Loden Hotel in downtown Vancouver to watch the premiere episode of Real Housewives of Vancouver – Season Two with friends, family and invite only guests.
The champagne was flowing and the ladies all sparkled in fabulous bejewelled gowns and designer name accessories. New wives Ioulia Reynolds, Amanda Hansen and Robin Reichman joined returning stars Jody Claman, Mary Zilba and Ronnie Negus for a night of celebrity celebration. It was hugs and kisses all round as guests walked the red carpet.
Fashion wise, it was basic black mixed with sparkles everywhere you looked. Mary, Ronnie and Ioulia rocked the red carpet in anything-but-basic black which made them all look equally gorgeous, elegant and fetching.
West Vancouver’s flamboyant mother-daughter team of Mia and Jody Claman were big time Hollywood glam in floor length bejewelled gowns which sparkled even more than the Moet. And newcomers Robin and Amanda were extra glittery in gold and see-through hues encrusted with enough sequins and beads to make Cher jealous. Personally, I adored every single outfit and think it helped make the premiere extra special in every way.
After the reception, it was time to see the action – and reactions. Everyone turned to the televisions as nervous giggles filled the air. In the end, it was a spectacular evening that sets the stage for an even more exciting season of entertainment and fun.
