TULUM, MEXICO: ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa Giudice has recently sparked a bit of controversy on social media when she posted a glamorous poolside picture of herself wearing a black two-piece with the designer label Chanel's double-C monogram. The Bravo star’s post caused a fashion Instagram account to slam her for allegedly donning a “cheap knockoff” piece. The star posted the photo while on a relaxing vacation in Tulum with her family.

The Instagram account, The Real Bad Fashions, run by Ben T, an accountant in Texas, called out the reality star, 50, on the authenticity of the designer swimsuit. The revelation prompted other internet sleuths to speculate whether the bikini was the real deal or a convincing knockoff. Although Teresa has yet to comment on the controversy, the debate over her designer swimsuit continues to rage on as her fans and followers remain divided on the validity of her fashion choice. The incident also occurs days after Teresa's husband, Luis Ruelas, was slammed for gifting fake Cartier bracelets to the 'RHONJ' star's daughters.

The Instagram account reposted Teresa’s photo wearing the swimsuit with the image of the fake version next to it for viewers to compare. The post was captioned, “We love alleged designer inspired swimwear here! 😜👙🤣 Also, before I hear "it has a tag"💤💤💤 really think that if someone can allegedly copy a design, the same can't happen to a tag? It's 2023 babes, not 1923. 🤡”

The ‘RHONJ’ star’s comment section was soon flooded as social media users swarmed to bash the reality star for her alleged “fake” swimsuit. A netizen commented on the post, “Fake. Wonder if your ring is real.” While another chimed in with, “Stop using fake brands 😂 @teresagiudice.”A social media user also wrote, “I’m guessing the swimsuit is fake 🤣.” And one person chastised the reality star by penning, “More fake designer goods.”


“Does Chanel even make cheap bikinis like this? I highly doubt it,” a netizen asked under the post. Another even pointed out, “Chanel doesn't even make this bikini, they made a different one that has the entire word Chanel across the bottom of the bikini top, it's vintage and goes for about 3k online resale. This woman is not paying 3k for a bathing suit.” A critic also noted, “It screams “new money” to plaster labels all over yourself. People with REAL money buy properties……not $800 bikinis.”
