NeNe Leakes Brings the Sass and the Sexy to 'Zumanity'
Zumanity, The sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil, will be starring Real Housewives of Atlanta star and actress, NeNe Leakes, in which she will wear costumes that were created by famed designer Gilbert Chagoury. Zumanity will be showing in Vegas from June 27th to July 1st and will feature NeNe as the "Mistress of Sensuality."
Her limited engagement will run from Friday, June 27 through Tuesday, July 1, 2014, with show times at 7:30pm and 10:00pm.
"I am so excited to be starring in Zumanity" says Leakes. "The show is absolutely fabulous and the cast members are so talented! I can't wait to be in the sexiest show on The Strip and perform on a Cirque du Soleil stage!"
Upon Zumanity celebrating its 10th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil has never featured a celebrity in any performance in its 30 years as a company. By introducing a celebrity guest, Cirque approached couture and ready to wear designer, Gilbert Chagoury to create custom pieces for NeNe to wear during the show’s run.
All of Nene’s costumes have been custom designed by Gilbert Chagoury, of Chagoury Couture, and has been working closely with Nene for months. Gilbert Chagoury joins a small group of affluent designers such as Annie Horth and Dominique Lemieux who have been hand-selected to design costumes for these amazing and successful shows.
Chagoury began his career working under the legendary designer Christian Dior in Paris. Since launching his self-titled line, Chagoury has quickly amassed a high profile clientele, and continues to dress Hollywood starlets, such as Milla Jovovich, Eva Longoria, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Hayden Panettiere, Sarah Hyland, and many others.
