We hung out with Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams when we were down in Miami in December to discuss style with her, and when the statuesque Williams greeted us, she wore almost no makeup, and had on a jersey sundress with flip flops, and she still looked stunning. We got to take a little tour of her Miami condo, we peeked in her closet, and had a look in her purse to see what her day-to-day essentials include. Williams was preparing for the Basketball Wives Livestream photo shoot and was pulling together some of her looks for shoot, including a gown to wear for this shot. During our Q & A with Williams, she told us that she was thrown off when she was told she needed to bring a gown to the photo shoot because, she said “Who owns a gown?” She might have a reputation for being bougie, but FYI, she doesn’t own a lot of gowns. Check out our nine stylish facts about Jennifer below, and don’t forget to tune in to the season four premiere of Basketball Wives on Monday, February 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
1. She still has her wedding gown, but she thinks it might have bad karma.
I think the last gown I put on was my wedding dress. It’s gorgeous, I just don’t know what to do with it. It’s custom made, I designed it, it’s pink, and I thought “Maybe if I had a daughter…” But now I think I don’t know if I want her to have that karma. So I don’t know what to do with it.
2. She doesn’t have a regular stylist
I don’t really even use a stylist a lot, you know if I’m going to an event then maybe, but for the most part I dress myself and I think I have a pretty decent sense of style where I don’t need a stylist all the time.
3. Her favorite high-end stores are…
Bergdorf’s, Neiman’s, I like boutiques, I like Intermix. If I’m on the street though and I see a little boutique that looks cute, I’ll go in.
4. And her favorite stores on a budget are…
Zara and H and M because I like to mix and match high end with lower-end. I love a good sale.
5. Her plans for her Lucid lip gloss line:
Right now it’s just lip gloss but that’s what I want to do eventually, I’m trying to figure out if I should do a licensing deal or what route I should go. I think it has the potential to be a full cosmetic line.
6. What’s her favorite color to wear from her lip gloss line?
I wear The Hills all the time.
7. What’s the one thing she keeps in her purse at all times?
I keep socks in my bag to wear on the plane. I’m anemic so I get cold all the time.
8. Her tips for doing makeup:
It all depends on what I’m wearing and what I do with my eyes. If I do a heavy eye, I tend to go with a lighter lip. I focus on one section of my face. If I do a darker lip, I’ll do a very simple eye.
9. Does she actually hit the gym?
Normally I do work out, but during filming it’s a little crazy. When you leave I’m going to the gym. I’m trying to be better this season.
