Kenya Moore was showered with love on Saturday afternoon, as family and friends gathered to celebrate her upcoming baby-to-be in an extravagant fairytale-themed baby shower.
The regal Real Housewives of Atlanta alum — who is expecting her first child next month with husband Marc Daly — was the center of attention at the event, which was held from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the historic Academy of Medicine in the heart of Atlanta.
Among the attendees were a slew of Moore’s former Bravo costars and colleagues, including Atlanta Housewives Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams; RHOA pals Shamea Morton, Carmon Cambrice, Miss Lawrence and Brandon Deshazer; Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Gizelle Bryant; and Married to Medicine‘s Dr. Heavenly Kimes and Toya Bush-Harris.
All looked the part, dressing up for the event’s vibe, which was proclaimed by “royal decree” on the invitation to be “Met Gala with a fairytale theme.”
“Please use your imagination,” Moore and Daly wrote. “We strongly encourage creativity.”

And creative they were in photos they shared on their respective social media accounts.
Burruss, 42, stood out in an ice-queen inspired look, with a long silver wig, tiara and plunging and sparkling silver gown. Bailey, 51, was a golden warrior queen in a blonde wig and gold crown, a dazzling statement necklace and a flowing dress with a fitted gold bodice and white skirt.
Kimes, 47, wore a black number with a sheer cape, while Bush-Harris, 42, opted for a pink princess ballgown.
Meanwhile, Bryant, 48, and Williams, 37, both rocked green — the latter’s high-cut bedazzled dress showing off her own growing baby bump. Later, Williams took off her long brown wig but kept on the bling of her crown as she packed on the PDA in a video with fiancé Dennis McKinley.

We went all out for @thekenyamoore’s baby shower! I don’t want to post all my pics until @thekenyamoore post but here’s just a couple. I was suppose to be an Ice Queen but @thefauxpro thought I was @oprah in #AWrinkleInTime… I’ll take that since I love Oprah. Thank you @sewjodie @taetv @hauseofglam & @Everythingelle_ of glam for getting me together! I loved my look! Gown: @Macduggal

Moore, the former Miss USA, stunned while channeling Beyoncé in a fitted gold dress with a long owl-feathered cape and heavy gold crown. Her husband, Daly, kept it classic in a blue tuxedo with a crisp white shirt worn without a tie.
“Thank you for indulging me in dressing up and doing something different,” Moore told the crowd upon her arrival at the shower’s seated dinner. “I really appreciate you guys.”
“I’m just so happy,” she gushed, before taking her seat on an oversized gold throne seated atop a stage and surrounded by her “royal court.”
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour before dinner and were later treated to “entertainment and festivities.”

Sadly, RHOA fans won’t get to see the event play out on television when the show’s eleventh season premieres in November. Moore chose not to return to the series, a disappointment for longtime viewers of the show hoping to see her journey continue.
Moore had long spoken on the show about her desire to start a family and had announced that she’s pregnant during the first part of the season 10 RHOA reunion.
“I’ve waited 47 years for this moment,” Moore, who conceived through in vitro fertilization, told PEOPLE at the time. “I didn’t really want to announce it too soon because I feel it’s very early on in our pregnancy. But I have suffered so much in my life when it comes to wanting a family around me. So this is the day I’ve been waiting for my entire life. It’s a dream come true.”

On Wednesday, she shared a 3D image of her growing “miracle” baby from an ultrasound on Instagram. In the caption, she pointed out that the baby — whose sex she and Daly are keeping a surprise until his/her birth — closely resembles Daly.
“OMG the baby has daddy’s lips and nose!” Moore wrote, also sharing a side-by-side image of Daly’s lips and her baby’s mouth.
