Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss celebrated her daughter Riley’s new look at BravoCon in New York over the weekend after a dramatic body transformation.
The 20-year-old looked totally unrecognizable as she hit the red carpet in two different outfits which showcased her much thinner.
‘My baby @rileyburruss is giving supermodel vibes!’ Kandi boasted to her Instagram followers on Saturday.

Riley has documented her body struggles over the years, but hasn’t revealed the secrets behind her latest transformation.
When she was 16, Riley went from 220lbs to 168lbs while working out five days a week and carefully watching her diet, but her latest loss appears to be even more dramatic.

Kandi had previously spoken up about the cruel comments Riley received about her weight while growing up on reality TV, saying: ‘I despise it. It bothers me so much. Everybody already knows that Riley dealt with her weight issues growing up in the public eye.
‘People would make comments on her body and say things about her personal look, and it really boils my blood.’
She continued: ‘You can deal with anything for yourself, but you don’t want your kids to be bullied online. It’s just really terrible.’

‘Luckily Riley has tough skin and doesn’t let it bother her but as her mom it used to p*ss me off when trolls would make negative comments about her size,’ Kandi confided.
In 2017, Riley released a single written by her mother called Better Late Than Never. It touched on the strained relationship she has with her father Russell ‘Block’ Spencer of Block Entertainment fame.

But she is now focused on a career behind the scenes.
Kandi, a hugely successful singer, songwriter and business owner, married her husband Todd Tucker in 2014, and they have two children together; Ace, six, and Blaze, two.
Riley was only seven-years-old when her mother joined Real Housewives of Atlanta and Kandi is now the longest-running Housewives star on Bravo.
