TEEN Mom star Leah Messer glammed up for a series of stunning Instagram snaps as she joked she was “play pretending” to be on a night out.
The MTV personality chose a sparkling knee-length gown with cut out panels which flashed her toned figure for her “dress up” evening, and clearly took it very seriously as she pulled out all the stops.

The mom of three, 28, gave her look an extra edge by styling her brunette locks into soft curls which hung on her shoulders.
She chose dark eye make-up and thick mascara before adding an extra glow with bronze blusher.
Leah enlisted the help of photo journalist Leeshia Lee for her two shots, which saw her pose on a staircase in Charleston, West Virginia.
In one caption, Leah made light of the current coronavirus pandemic and lockdown state as she joked: “It’s FriYay! Where we going Queen? ?✨#tgif

A fan promptly replied: “Nowhere there is a pandemic,” before she added: “True ??.
“But we can dress up and play pretend until then ???”
Alongside the second image, the Teen Mom favorite gave a glimpse into her mindset following the recent full moon.
She wrote: “Every new moon I set ✨NEW✨ intentions for the month, and every full moon I release any toxic s**t that may be preventing me from reaching my monthly goals or that I may have allowed to block me from a higher purpose!

“Here’s to releasing toxic energy & crushing our goals in February. What are some ways that you can cleanse your mind, body, & soul going into the new month? Slayyy Queen!? ?.”
The West Virginia native, mom to three daughters – twins Ali and Aleeah, 11, and Addie, 7, may well have been responding after trolls slammed her recent trip to Nashville.
Leah confessed she had “mom guilt” after taking the time away from her family – a reasoning some fans just didn’t buy.
In another Instagram caption, which many fans on Reddit said felt very “fake,” the Teen Mom admitted she often feels bad when she has to leave her kids for a little bit.

The Hope, Grace, & Faith author wrote: “If you’ve ever felt ‘mom guilt’ raise your hand ??♀️ These past couple of days have been TOUGH.
“It’s no secret I love my girls, but sometimes it’s such an internal battle when I have to leave them to work.
She continued: “I want to build a solid foundation for my daughters & inspire them to reach their goals and balancing that with quality time can be challenging. How do you handle mom guilt?
“What allows you to find that balance? Let’s build each other up and share some tips below.”

With the final line and call to action, some Reddit users claimed she was just pretending to feel this way because she wanted to seem releatable and wanted to grow her interaction as a social media influencer.
One user commented: “Everything about this feels so faaaaake. Blah, I hate Instagram. So polished and perfect and preachy. NO ONE IS LIKE THIS IN REAL LIFE.”
Another blasted, referencing Leah’s daughter, Ali, who suffers from muscular dystrophy: “That’s not ‘mom guilt’ that’s ‘covid traveling with an immunocompromised child at home’ guilt.”
The Teen Mom star has also kept Ali home from school and sports activities over the last year in order to preserve her “compromised immune system,” but then she herself left the bubble to see a friend in Nashville, which some suggested was ironic.
