Bevy Smith

Media maven Bevy Smith is successful, sassy and stylish—and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind on Bravo’s hit TV series Fashion Queens! Did you catch her on last night’s premiere? Bevy served up hilarious fashion reads looked fabulous as ever doing so. In this exclusive SBH interview, Bevy chats about her on-screen glam routine and spills her best piece of fashion advice after.

What’s it like working with your co-hosts, Miss Lawrence and Derek J?
Oh, I love working with them. First of all, we’re a close-knot crew so when we wrap our taping we always have dinner together. It’s like a real family! I know everyone says that, but unlike [many] reality shows, we’re not paid to bicker; we’re not paid to disagree. We’re paid to have a good time and to discuss fashion and the bonus is that we actually love each other.

What’s your best piece of fashion advice?
Develop your own personal style. So many times we look at what’s going on in fashion and we look at trends, but trends don’t work for everyone. You have to find a way to define your own personal style and stick with that. You should never, ever chase a trend. If it doesn’t work for you, move on to the next.

How long does it take to get glammed up before filming?
If I had my way I would go on Fashion Queens like Whoopi Goldberg! But, Bravo would not permit that so I’m forced to go into glam. Hair and makeup takes about an hour and a half and then I just throw on the clothes—that’s the easiest part of it. I’m a big believer in two things: Don’t buy clothes that don’t fit and don’t buy clothes that you don’t really like.

What’s your No. 1 hair tip?
If you’re going to wear a weave, make sure you go to someone who really knows how to put in a weave so it’s done correctly!

Do you feel that your shoe game is up to par with Derek J?
I don’t compete with anyone about anything!
