Ariela Weinberg is one of many 90 Day Fiancé franchise stars who have taken style risks since losing weight, but the partner of Biniyam Shibre doesn’t always earn applause for her post-weight loss outfits. Ariela is known for her free-spirited personality, which often translated to her casual looks when she lived in Ethiopia. However, Ariela has been experimenting more with her style since returning to the United States, which has led to some bold fashion decisions.
Ariela left the U.S. as a teenager, so she could explore the world. She ended up separating from her husband Leandro Fosque after becoming pregnant with baby Aviel following a fling with Ethiopian dancer, Biniyam. Ariela and Biniyam lived in modest circumstances in Ethiopia, before deciding to return to America for 90 Day Fiancé season 9. With help from Ariela’s wealthy parents, she and Biniyam have seen their lifestyle change considerably. She has also updated her look with help from weight loss and cosmetic procedures. These changes have led to her playing with personal style.
Since having baby Avi, Ariela has lost considerable weight. This has slimmed her face down dramatically. She also received Botox injections and lip filler, to correct some of the symptoms of her TMJ jaw disorder. While Ariela has been open about these changes, as well as plumping her butt with injections, many fans believe that she has had more procedures done to her face. Her potential plastic surgery transformation has been hotly debated by franchise fans, although many viewers have also discussed her style evolution, as she has become more daring in terms of what she wears.
As many people do, Ariela used Halloween as a chance to experiment with a new look. The mother of baby Aviel shocked and wowed viewers by showing off a number of racy Halloween costumes that she was considering wearing for the holiday. Her body appeared dramatically slimmer in the images, although viewers were a bit alarmed by Ariela’s face. The New Jersey native wore a blank expression in her photos, which made some viewers feel uncomfortable.
Ariela stepped out in a green mini-dress with sequins, to support Biniyam during his MMA fight. Viewers had mixed opinions about the bold look. Some fans and familiar franchise faces praised Ariela’s colorful and daring look, especially since she looked happy and confident in the outfit. Other viewers didn’t love the look, and thought that Ariela could have selected a more flattering outfit to show off her slimmer body. However, Ariela clearly enjoyed taking a fashion risk with her dress.
Ariela definitely left plenty of 90 Day Fiancé viewers surprised with an image that she shared in August 2021. She opted for an off-the-shoulder top and a full glam hair and makeup look. The American mom appeared dramatically different with professional hair, makeup, and styling. Many fans noted that Ariela did not look like herself, and accused her of editing her image. However, other 90 Day Fiancé fans complimented Ariela on her formal attire.
