Ariana Madix Stuns in Body-Baring Cutout Minidress on 'Love Island USA'
The 38-year-old 'Vanderpump Rules' breakout star graced the screen in a sassy solo shot, showcasing her new post-breakup dressing aesthetic.
Clad in a white, crystal minidress adorned with a glittering butterfly cutout by Area, valued at $995, Ariana effortlessly exuded elegance and allure. She complemented the backless mini with Jessica Simpson-designed metallic strappy heels, taking a bold nod from the early aughts fashion.
Ariana Madix's long tousled waves perfectly matched the Fiji retreat ambiance as she posed around the iconic fire pit. A hot pink couch, featuring the words "It Was Always You" in topiary, served as the backdropp for the captivating photo.
The Bravolebrity took to Instagram to share her excitement, writing, "I can't believe I'm popping in the @loveislandUSA villa this week! Like.. I am GATHERED around the fire pit!" She urged her followers to tune in and "watch the fun" on Peacock.
The anticipation for Ariana's appearance reached a fever pitch as even the show's host, Sarah Hyland, couldn't contain her excitement. Leaving a trail of clapping and fire emojis, Hyland commented, "Oh... they aren't ready for this BOMBSHELL! 😍🔥🌴"
The surprise appearance was met with praise not only from the 'Love Island USA' fans but also from British "Love Island" alums. Maura Higgins, excited to see Ariana, wrote, "Yesssss girl🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥," while Shaughna Phillips playfully joked, "Can I pull you for a chat?"
Ariana and Maura even shared a short Instagram Story together, with Ariana expressing her excitement and nervousness about being on her favorite show. The two stars agreed to meet for a drink after the filming.
Fans were quick to notice Ariana's stunning transformation and alluring appearance on the show. One fan playfully quipped, "It's amazing what losing 170lbs will do to a girl," referencing her high-profile breakup with Tom Sandoval, who cheated on her with ex-BFF Raquel Leviss while filming 'Vanderpump Rules.'
Since the split, Ariana has embraced ultra-sexy revenge dressing, dazzling in a plunging fiery red mini and a show-stopping ab-baring Mônot jacket and skirt.
While appearing on 'Love Island USA,' Ariana Madix won't be entering into any new romantic entanglements, as she is currently dating fitness trainer Daniel Wai and is also actively filming Season 11 of 'Vanderpump Rules.'
Additionally, she is preparing to grace the dance floor in Season 32 of 'Dancing with the Stars,' showcasing her talents and captivating the audience through the summer.
