Wendy Williams’ Fashion Evolution Spans Dramatic Heels, Wild Prints & Bursts of Color

Wendy Williams has been a large part of pop culture. From her lengthy stint on the radio to her hit daytime talk show “The Wendy Williams Show,” where she spilled the tea on celebrity gossip, Williams has provided audiences with years of entertainment.

Through medical trials, tears, and laughs, the TV personality recently aired her final episode of her long-running show after a 13-season run. Fashion played a role on the program, including a “shoe cam” highlighting what her guests were wearing, and her own signature looks often embracing vibrant colors, fitted silhouettes and playful prints along with high heels. While it’s uncertain where her career takes her next, the highly opinionated and very entertaining host will remain a fashionable woman.

Here, a look at her style evolution through the years.
