Brooklyn native Sai de Silva is a well-heeled member of the new and more diverse cast of the rebooted Real Housewives of New York franchise. Before the show, the Afro-Latina wife and mom was already well-known as an influencer and self-proclaimed “Funny fashion girl w/ 2 sidekick kids”, showing off her beauty and fashion sense from the streets of NYC to Fashion Weeks worldwide.
Now that we have the pleasure of lusting after her looks on our phones and TV screens, it felt apropos to recall some of our favorite looks she’s rocked this year, both before and since the show. From around-the-way girl to European chic, here are seven times Sai proved her hair and makeup looks are the “baddest of the bunch”–in the best way.
Baddest of the Bunch
Sai’s show tagline says there are a lot of bad apples, but she’s the “baddest of the bunch.” Her glam from that day of filming makes the bad girl look oh-so-good in mostly glowing neutral makeup, plus a dark solid cat eye and extra long lashes that make her brown eyes glow in the light.
Red Carpet Realness
Sai came to slay the RHONY premiere red carpet, sporting a flowing and slightly asymmetrical side-parted bob that fell somewhat over her left eye and onto her shoulder. The gorgeous cut framed glittery golden eye shadow, rosy cheeks, and rosy-brown lip color.
This shiny silver and bronze eye shadow with a bold geometric liner immediately took us to another galaxy! We love how Sai’s glam squad softened the strong eye statement with rosy cheeks and rosy-brown lip color and gave her a head full of big, glorious curls.
Bringing Scrunchie Back
Sai made a simple, slicked-back bun fun again when she added an oversized pearl accented scrunchie, proving that hair and beauty looks don’t have to be over-the-top to make a style statement.
Around the Way Glam
Cornrows never looked so chic, and we especially love how Sai’s hair stylist brought the braids into an elegant knot at the base of her neck. Her makeup artist let the hair, denim-on-denim outfit, and cascading gold cuff earrings be the moment, keeping her makeup clean and neutral but with a hint of blue in the inner corners of her eyes, plus lashes for days.
We didn’t know this red lip, deep pink blush, and gigantic flower moment was what we needed until Sai gave us another simply chic hairstyle with extra flair.
One can’t help but adore Sai’s shoulder-length curls in their natural state, paired with peach-toned eyelids, cheeks, and pout in this stunning editorial shot.
