From VH1’s Basketball Wives LA to TVOne’s The Next: 15, it seems TV personality Laura Govan has managed to solidify her stay in the volatile world of reality TV since 2011. Combine that with being a mom of four and you’ve got yourself a recipe for not taking a decent amount of time for yourself.  But somewhere along the way, we’ve noticed quite the transformation in Laura’s style.

Since her first appearance on television, Laura’s been a fan of somewhat shapeless silhouettes that didn’t seem to accentuate any part of her body with the exception of her legs.  And with cascading hair, it sometimes hid her enviable bone structure.  Satin dresses and flowing tops dominated her wardrobe in her early days.

Trading in long locks for a very chic low cut to highlight her high cheeks and stunning makeup definitely elevated her look.  But Laura’s wardrobe also took a took for the better, thanks to celebrity stylist Daniel Hawkins.
