  • Gia Giudice shared new photos taken at BravoCon on Instagram
  • The reality star's post received mixed responses online
  • Many said she looked unrecognizable in the snaps she shared

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice's eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, got flak after sharing new photos she took at BravoCon 2022.

The 21-year-old reality star proudly took to Instagram on Thursday to share "more bravocon moments" by uploading two snaps she captured at the event.

In the first photo, Gia posed for the camera outside of the venue while rocking heavy makeup and darker hair. In the second snap, she gave her fans a closer look at her glam look by posing closer to the lens while inside the venue.

The TV star's post received mixed responses online. Many found her unrecognizable in the photos. Some even compared her to her mom Teresa's "Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-star Dolores Catania.

"Why does Gia look like Dolores?" one asked.

"She doesn't look like Gia anymore. She looks more like Dolores," another added.

"Too much makeup," a different user opined.

"Less Botox and less lip injections. Less makeup. Remember ladies, you aren't ugly, you're just POOR," noted another user.

Meanwhile, several showered Gia with compliments, saying she looked gorgeous in the snaps because of her new style.

"Loving your style, and you look so confident and beautiful," wrote one fan.

"You are absolutely stunning," commented another.

"Wow! Hair and makeup on point," a different user added.

"Don't listen to what others are saying, you are gorgeous, Gia," another fan stated.

Gia recently made headlines when she broke her silence on the feud involving her mom Teresa and her uncle Joe Gorga at BravoCon.

According to her, even though there had been a falling-out between Teresa and Gorga, she's still on speaking terms with the latter.

"We don't really talk as much now, but it's OK. I'm sure we'll move forward somehow. I texted my uncle for [his] birthday just out of respect — and for the holidays. He texted back just like, 'Thank you,'" she said.

Meanwhile, Gia's younger sister, Milania, was recently slammed for sharing "seductive" photos online. The 16-year-old raised eyebrows when she posted photos of her donning a silk nightgown with a thigh-high slit on Instagram.

Many claimed she shouldn't upload "very seductive" photos online, and she should act her age. However, her mom, Teresa, seemingly approved of her photos since she left several white heart emojis as a comment on the post.

Aside from Gia and Milania, exes Teresa and Joe are also parents to two other daughters, Gabriella, 18, and Audriana, 13.
