Now that she’s appeared in the pages of Vogue magazine, NeNe Leakes has effectively been blessed by fashion’s most elite lady, Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. And once Anna gives you the OK, you should always be on your fashion a-game. Always.

On Sept. 21, NeNe attended the 2012 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party presented by L'Oreal Paris at Fig & Olive Melrose Place in West Hollywood wearing a crisp, white button-down shirt and — wait for it — leather pants!

While we gotta give NeNe props for staying on-trend, perhaps pants made of leather wasn’t the most flattering choice for the curvy star. 

We know NeNe favors blouses with pants on the red carpet, but maybe it’s time for this real housewife to ditch the bottoms and rock a sexy dress!

What do you think of NeNe’s leather look? Tell us below.
