For those who watch “The Real Housewives of Dallas,” you know that Preston Hollow’s LeeAnne Locken has been engaged for nearly a year to longtime boyfriend Rich Emberlin. He proposed at the State Fair of Texas with an incredible ring. Women on the show, which airs tonight on Bravo, have been speculating about when or if she’ll actually get married.

Here’s the deal: her stylist Jeanette Chivvis recently revealed in an interview with the Preston Hollow Advocate that a Dallas designer is designing her wedding dress. She won’t reveal which designer — except to say that Dallas designer Nardos designed her engagement dress. Chivvis reveals that Locken’s style has evolved from “Miss Charity person” to edgier, sexier, channeling “Game of Thrones.” “She has a good sense of what she likes,” Chivvis says. “She’s more of an edgy girl. She doesn’t care that much about the ladies who lunch anymore. She’s just trying to be LeeAnne. She will continue to break the mold.”

For full details from the interview with Chivvis, look for the October issue of the Preston Hollow Advocate magazine.
