Who Wore it Best?: RHOA’ Fans Split After Kandi Burruss and Nene Leakes Rock the Same Black Fishnet Set

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” OG Nene Leakes stepped out this weekend with her boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh wearing a black fishnet two-piece set. According to Fashion Bomb Daily, the $2,280 turtleneck top and mini skirt from the luxury brand Hervé Leger features a dramatic fringe at the hem.

The fashion outlet also noticed that fellow “RHOA” star Kandi Burruss wore the same bondage-style set to an Oscars party earlier this month. Burruss, who attended the event with her husband, Todd Tucker, paired her look with gold Tom Ford heels and dangling earrings. Meanwhile, Leakes opted for a pair of diamond studs and red Christian Louboutin heels to match Sioh’s red suit. Both ladies tucked their hair away from their glammed-up faces with middle-part hairstyles.

Although Burruss and Leakes have been unable to get along on “RHOA,” it’s clear the two have somewhat similar taste when it comes to fashion. Fans of the Bravo series were surprisingly split over who rocked the fishnet look best. Many agreed both reality stars looked great, including those who said, “Both ‘RHOA’ dolls ate.” Yet some still were leaning toward picking the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter. Here’s what a few had to say.

“NeNe looks gorgeous. Red shoes [are] a hit! Kandi looks great as well.”

“Kandi. Plus NeNe lost a point for her man’s shoes!”

“NeNe looks pretty, however, Kandi made it look more expensive and classier.”

“They both look good, but I gotta go with Kandi on this one.”

“Both… but the lighting in Kandi photo made it look better.”

Supporters of Nene Leakes insisted the “RHOA” vet outshined 45-year-old Burruss with her bright red shoes and blonde/black hairstyle. One person wrote, “NeNe! The contrast of her hair and shoes made the set pop. I also think her height added to the silhouette.”

Some of those bringing up height wrote how 54-year-old Leakes, who stands at 5″10, according to IMDB, looked in the fishnet attire compared to Burruss, at 5″2.

One individual wrote, “Oh the shade…I like it on NeNe better because of the height.” Another said, “NeNe wore this look hunni from head to toe.”

A third person said, “I love Kandi but it’s Leakes for me !!!!!”
