She DID just spend a bunch of time on a boat with her new boyfriend, so it’s POSSIBLE that both the tan and the highlights are real.
But the hair LOOKS like a wig she just pulled out of a plastic bag in her attic — the one marked VACATION HAIR — and plopped on her head after a quick back-combing. All of that rolled together gives her a Real Housewives of Cougar Town vibe that undercuts the cute pattern on the dress itself. Which, by the way, I correctly called for this exact event. I just wish I were more tickled to see it.
