Reality star Nene Leakes has a lot on her plate right now. After her stint on Dancing with the Stars, the outspoken diva announced that she will be joining Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity as the Mistress of Sensuality starting on June 27. The show opened up their doors to give the press an exclusive sneak peek at their rehearsal, where we got to see the cast members sporting their over-the-top costumes.

Nene wore a dramatic PVC dress with a high slit that showed off her legs. She paired the sexy frock with strappy Louboutin heels and finished with loads of sparkling crystal jewelry that were definitely scene-stealing. Being this overly decorated with large-stoned jewelry can be an eyesore, though, even on the red carpet. But Nene was in character, so we’ll forgive her for it.
Of course, you can’t walk out of the house looking too blinged out unless you have a fun costume party to attend. However, you can copy Nene’s look by going for toned-down versions of her jewelry pieces.
Remember, too much accessories can make you seem like you’re trying too hard. Instead, opt for smartly put together pieces to finish with a more sophisticated look. Go for either a bold necklace or bold earrings, but avoid wearing them together.
