Body by LaRen on Love and Hip Hop

Since the brand started in 2018, celebrities and influencers discovered them quickly. On their website, you will find the "As seen on" section and there, pictures of everyone seen in Body by LaRen. You can notice that they are popular among the stars of Love and Hip Hop.

The biggest shout out yet came from the Wendy Williams Show. Just one day before Body by LaRen presented the apparel, rapper Trina wore a piece from the new collection. The BBL Print Turban Head Turner that she picked made her look amazing.
