• Rachel “Raquel” Leviss modeled for Glaudi by Johana Hernandez at New York Fashion Week, wearing two showstopping looks
• Leviss decided to exit Vanderpump Rules following her cheating scandal with costar Tom Sandoval
• The cast of Vanderpump Rules filmed for season 11, including a trip to Lake Tahoe and San Francisco
Here is what happened:
“Rachel ‘Raquel’ Leviss just SURved major style.
In fact, the Vanderpump Rules alum swapped the pageant stage for the runway, as she modeled two showstopping looks for Glaudi by Johana Hernandez at New York Fashion Week. For the Feb. 8 event, Rachel first donned a glitzy nude gown that included barely-there cutouts and all-over beading.”
The 29-year-old then hit the catwalk in a more risqué look, wearing a bright orange dress that showed off most of her abs with two extreme side cutouts. The bedazzled design also featured sheer fabric with crystal embellishments, a knee-high slit and a dramatic off-the-shoulder cape. As for the reality TV personality’s glam, she upped the bombshell factor with a voluminous blowout and sultry smoky eye. Before sashaying down the runway, Rachel teased the moment, saying in a Feb. 9 Instagram Story, “We’re fashion show ready!”
“The podcaster’s NYFW appearance clearly marks a new chapter for her. If anything, it comes two months after she decided to exit Vanderpump Rules following her cheating scandal with costar Tom Sandoval (who was in a 9-year relationship with Ariana Madix at the time).”
