Erika Jayne has been the Queen of Glam since she first graced us with her presence during season 6 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Bravo fans have only known the dolled-up version of Erika; however, she wasn’t always so flashy and glamourous.
Once upon a time, Erika didn’t spend tens of thousands a month on designer duds and a glam squad, consisting of a hairstylist, a makeup artist, a fashion stylist, and more. Instead, she opted for a more natural look and simple, pared-down threads.
Erika infamously sang, “It’s expensive to be me,” and revealed just how expensive her monthly upkeep was in 2017.
“It’s a lot,” the RHOBH star told In Touch.“Maybe $40,000 a month on clothes, shoes, and accessories.”
“But it’s all for work. I’m on television; this is what I do for a living,” Erika explained. “It’s part of the job.”
With that said, let’s look at how the RHOBH star’s look has changed over the years as her fame rose to its current level.
In 2007, Erika sported a casual blazer, sweater vest and paired it with simple hair and makeup.
That same year, Erika rocked a fresh face during a fashion show.
She debuted a slightly more glam look at a Susanne Bartsch party in 2007.
Erika’s look continued to evolve in 2010.
She premiered a fresh new look in 2011.
The RHOBH star perfected her look in 2012.
Over the next few years, her look continued to evolve. In 2015, she showed off a sleek and simple look.
She kicked up the glam in 2016 when she joined the RHOBH cast.
Erika, who appeared on season 24 of DWTS in 2017 and enjoyed a collab with Too Faced in 2019, continued to keep her glam look on point. At this point, Erika’s glam became her signature look.
With her fame cemented in stone, Erika was the picture of perfection at the Savage X Fenty show in 2020. She also appeared as a model and ambassador for Savage X Fenty.
Despite being embroiled in a legal battle involving her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, Erika kept herself primped and polished in May 2021 at the MTV Movie Awards.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
