If you had asked us to predict which of the five Real Housewives of New Jersey stars would be named the best dressed at the Season 5 reunion, we probably would have guessed Melissa Gorga.

The newly-blonde housewife wore an elegant pink dress that gave off the air of a Grecian goddess. Plus, Melissa channeled her inner Angelina Jolie with a sultry, leg-baring pose. Plenty of the housewives wore tight, colorful, and skin-baring outfits. But at the end of the day, when Bravo asked fans which lovely lady they thought had the best look of the night, it was family matriarch Caroline Manzo who crushed her competition.

A total of 32 percent of RHoNJ fans voted Caroline the best dressed of the night. Teresa Giudice, who wore a turquoise mini and black pumps, came in a close second, at 32 percent. Greek goddess Melissa garnered only 17 percent of votes, while Jacqueline Laurita’s red ensemble got 12 percent. Kathy Wakile’s black outfit earned just 9 percent of votes.

We love the bright blue color of Caroline’s dress. Plus, it was designed by son Albie Manzo’s ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Andrews, which gives the outfit much more meaning than some random store bought frock.

Caroline’s look shows off a bit of skin, but doesn’t go too overboard. It’s eye-catching, but not over the top. Plus, the brilliant blue really draws attention to her fiery red hair.

What do you think: Did the people get it right in crowning Caroline best dressed? Or would you have chosen a different housewife? Head below and sound off.
