"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, Garcelle Beauvais, looked as gorgeous as ever in a new social media post. The actress recently expressed her views about being the first black person on RHOBH.
Garcelle Beauvais warmed the hearts of many fans with a new selfie on Thursday, as she turned out in a trendy outfit.
The Haitian-American actress posted a photo of herself showing off her beautiful long brunette hair, donning a black turtleneck, and a light grey coat. Beauvais looked flawless in gray lipstick.

The 53-year-old then captioned the picture with the phrase "Fifty Shades of Grey," a reference to her outfit's theme as well as the famous erotic novel and movie series of the same name.
Fans gushed about the ageless beauty and showered her with compliments. Many admired the actress's hairstyle and outfit, with one fan adjusting the photo's caption to good effect, exclaiming:
"100 shades of SLAYYyY❤️❤️❤️"
Others responded to the post by showering praise on the celeb for her exploits in the movie and TV industry, particularly for her new role on Bravo reality TV series, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
Beauvais became a main cast member on the show in its tenth season, which hit TV earlier this year. However, being the first black woman to hold a diamond since the franchise debuted in 2010, expectations have weighed heavily on the actress.
2020 has undoubtedly been a positive year for Beauvais, as she also welcomed her first grandson, Oliver Junior.
In the podcast "Reality Life with Kate Casey," Beauvais admitted to feeling pressure from people nudging her to take the role in a particular direction. Nonetheless, the actress claimed she stayed true to herself and worked hard not to perpetuate stereotypes, particularly against black women.
However, Beauvais did admit that appearing on RHOBH was a bit of a mid-life crisis for her. She recalled her team not being thrilled about her joining the show, before convincing them she wanted to take her career in a new direction. She said to E!:
"…And I thought - you know what, why not do something outside of the box, right?"
RHOBH's 10th season has been quite tense. Beauvais revealed that she learned not to let her guard down while on the show, as circumstances often change rapidly.
The reality star still keeps it real, though, and openly claims that her caucasian counterparts earn considerably more than she does.
Beauvais' new TV role isn't the only positive for the mother-of-three this year, as she recently celebrated a significant romantic relationship.
Beauvais officially became a mother-in-law in May when her eldest son, Oliver Saunders, said the magic words to tie the knot with his fiancee, Sam. The actress was overjoyed as she announced the news on Instagram, welcoming Sam to her family.
2020 has undoubtedly been a positive year for Beauvais, as she also welcomed her first grandson, Oliver Junior, a few months before Saunders's wedding.
