Steve Irwin's wife Terri trades khaki uniform for glitzy dresses, reportedly dating 'mystery man'
It is speculated that Terri Irwin has a 'new man' in her life whom she is trying to 'impress'. The result is a complete wardrobe makeover.
Terri Irwin, the 54-year-old mother-of-two, has undergone a glamorous makeover and transformation in recent months as it is reported that her new look is to impress a "mystery man" in her life.
According to a report by Women's Day, the widow of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irvin has transformed her wardrobe and traded her khaki colored ensembles for figure-hugging glitzy dresses.
A source shared, "There's been a huge shift in her body confidence, and she wants to have more fun with fashion." It was just last week that Terri gave onlookers a glimpse of her lean legs while sporting a silver sequined mini dress at the Critics Choice Real TV Awards in Los Angeles.
The silver mini dress featured long sleeves and a crew neckline, and Terri paired it with strappy silver stilettos and a black clutch purse. Terri even splashed on some makeup for the special occasion, bringing a pop of color with a soft pink lip and a swipe of blush on her cheeks.
The wildlife warrior shared the spotlight with her children, with Bindi looking equally as stunning in a black and white dress. The 20-year-old kept things simple with a pair of black heels, while she styled her hair in soft waves and pulled part back with a white clip. Her brother Robert looked dapper in a navy suit which he paired perfectly with a light blue shirt, tie and casual black sneakers.
About a month ago, Terri was seen looking very glamorous while attending an exclusive gala dinner at the SLS Hotel located in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles in early May. She showed off her stunning figure in a tight black sweater along with a floral skirt and a pair of strappy nude colored heels.
The source said, "Everyone's wondering who she's trying to impress. There are rumors she met someone while working in LA and she's been getting close to this guy for a while."
The source further said that Terri could have glammed up for the Critics Choice Real TV Awards as her "new man" was also attending the event.
It's not the first time Terri has traded her khakis in favor of an elegant red carpet ensemble. In May last year, she attended the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Los Angeles in a knee-length black lace dress with bell sleeves and cut-out shoulders.
The Irwin family had earlier suffered a major loss when Terri's husband Steve passed away at the age of 44 after an encounter with a stingray on the Great Barrier Reef in 2006. Steve left behind his wife Terri, his daughter Bindi, and son Robert.
Terri had previously shared that she still feels very close to Steve and refused to remarry or even go out on dates. The couple had first met in 1991 when Terri was visiting wildlife rehabilitation facilities located in Australia. The pair fell in love and got married the very next year in 1992.
