Vote for the Housewife you think showed off the fiercest fashion.

You gotta hand it to The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies, they make Reunions look good. But which 'Wife did Reunion fashion the best?  

Alexis Bellino went for sexy cut outs in her Herve Leger number, with matching red lips to boot. Tamra Barney also chose Herve, but went pretty in pink. Vicki Gunvalson looked peachy in her structured Alice and Olivia peplum, while Gretchen Rossi went for a more goddess-like mint mini by Michael Costello. And Heather Dubrow was quite posh in this periwinkle Victoria Beckham as Lydia McLaughlin wore an effortlessly ethereal Maria Lucia Hohan gown.

But we want your opinion—who had the best RHOC Reunion look? Did you like the more structured take on Reunion wear, or are you more a fan of flowing fashions? Sound off in our Poll.

Gretchen is so pretty is does not matter what she wears.

is she trying to carbon copy Bethany she even tries to walk like her.  Although I did not vote her dress as "best", it fit her perfectly, sort of a nondescript style, classy, but very plain jane.  She dresses the most appropriate for women of their statue and class.  But she is so opinionated, and even pompous at times and this dress says just that.  She is very pretty, and would probably look good wearing a gunny sack, but I still don't think that dress had much to say.

I liked Heather's the best. I don't like Gretchen's style. It's trashy/bad bridesmaidy.

OMG...this vote HAD to be fixed. Gretchen's dress was horrible. She looked ridiculous .Alexis and Tamra  were both beautiful and had the best dresses.

Gretchen, you normally look pretty good, and you're still my favorite housewife but honey... you gotta admit you look kinda like you belong on the Lawrence Welk show with that dress! Not that that's a bad thing... but that's all I could think about every time I saw it! You still looked cute though! And I really like that color on you! :)

Vicki... oh, Vicki, Vicki, Vicki.  One word... NO!  Good grief woman you're fifty-something, put on some appropriate clothing!  I'm twenty-two and I don't even wear stuff that spandex-tight!

Tamra... you're just ridiculous.  So pretty much no matter what you wear, you're still gonna look like ick.   The dress itself wasn't bad, but it was doomed after you put it on.  If you're ugly on the inside (like Vicki), you will become ugly on the outside too.

Alexis, honey, less is more.  Between the gaudy jewelry, gaudy shoes, the fancy updo and the red lipstick with the RED cut-out dress it was just a whole lot of... well, lots!  You should've toned it down a notch or six and went with nude or pink lips and kept the jewelry to a minimum.  But even still, despite the fact I'm still not a complete fan, you looked pretty.

Heather, oh gracious... Victoria Beckham or not (which, by the way, I don't really see why everybody thinks she's so gorgeous), that dress was... not good.  Maybe that's just "New York" style, but wow.  The fabric looked almost like it was a thin styrofoam or something... almost like a kid's play mat or something, it was weird.  And the blue eye shadow to match your dress and then adding gaudy earrings and black strappy heels??  None of it went together at all.  I mean I don't think any of those pieces would've went together with any other part of the outfit except maybe the earrings with your stripper heels.

And lastly, Lydia.  I actually really liked your outfit a lot, minus the headband though!  Sorry, but it just didn't seem to match to me, but otherwise I thought you looked beautiful.

I was  surprised by Gretchen dress, it was awful color not my favorite one! and the style was awful...she is the most well dressed all the time but not this time indeed, Tamra has my favorite color and the style is nice it makes her looks more younger anyway.....Vicky's dress color love it!

They are ALL so ugly inside, it is very difficult to look at their looks and actually say any of them are beautiful!

THE TOP OF THE DRESS COMPLIMENTED HER FIGURE .......THE SKIRT HALF WAS TERRIBLE TOO SHORT TOO TIGHT SHOWED EVERY FLAW ....THE COLOR WAS GOOD

Vicki is old enough to know better. She has been on TV enough to know how she photographs. Bravo has enough makeup and wardrobe people to give style advice.  Therefore, I think Vicki looks like a tasteless fool wearing such a tight, short garment that absolutely does her no favors at all.  I find the insistence on trying to compete with younger, thinner women and trying to hold on to the "Barbie" or "California girl" look as silly, tragic and most importantly unbecoming of a 51 year old women.  So many ways to look sexy, stunning, chic and polished AND tight, short dresses IS NOT one of them.  Give it a damn rest Vicki.  Also, as much as Vicki has accomplished in the business world, as confident in that arena as she might be, she is painfully weak when it comes to relationships.  She acts like a silly high school girl insisting on holding on to Brooks and crying and making excuses for his poor behavior.  GEEEEZZZZ what a school girl!!!  It's embarassing to watch.

Vicki, we're begging you, girl.  Please get a stylist.  Or a better stylist.  It's not the clothes you wear that are the problem (the peplum outfit is quite nice, in fact), but omg, the FIT!  Everything you wear is two sizes two small.  Just bite the bullet and buy the damn size 16 already.  You'll look better!

Gretchen looked like a pageant reject from head to toe.  Alexis looked okay, but a bit overdone, plus she's a snooze. Tamra is so pretty and the dress was bright and simple, which I liked.  Vicki looked jammed into her ensemble, she looked like she could barely breathe or move.  Lydia's dress was pretty, but the color was dull on TV. Heather's dress was nice..classic..but it was hard to get past her hideous blue eye shadow.

I thought Gretchen looked the best from the neck down.  That hair looked like something from The Grand Ol' Opry!  The most put together was Alexis, shame she has the personality of a door knob.  Tamra is a beautiful woman, her face is just classically gorgeous, too bad her personality is a bit off putting.  Heather looked like an accountant.  Vicki and Lydia, not sure what you were thinking, you both missed the mark.

Best outfit by far. However, it was a tad too snug.,

Even though I'm on Team Gretchen, I actually thought Alexis looked the best at the reunion.  I loved the red, and the whole outfit looked sexy, but still "age appropriate."  Tamra looked like she was going to a high school prom (which would match her maturity level), Heather and Vicki both looked like they were going to work (at a regular, boring office job), I'm  not really sure what was up with Gretchen's attire (but the color was pretty), and Lydia's dress looks like it's missing some pieces.  All in all, Alexis looked the best hands down.

It would be easier to choose the worst & most ridiculous.  Lydia!   I think she's smoking with Judy & dresses like a fairy. What's with the hair?  Terrible..

I liked Tamra and Heather's the best...classic cuts really look best after 35.  Gretchen's was by far the worst...fussy, gaudy, and tacky.

I just want to say to all of the Housewives I am sorry for saying anything on here. Number 1, I really don't know you! Number 2, Anyone who complains about gossiping from you ladies within each other is stupid when that is all the comments are about, People gossiping about you. No More for me. Judith

Alexis looked amazing - really the most beautiful.  Her makeup was perfect; and  her lipstick perfectly matched her dress.

@Octoberquilt Vickie wears her cloths way too tight and the hem was hanging on this dress.

@Octoberquilt I I totally and respectfully disagree. Her dress was too short and too tight. Her figure is too full to try to look like the other women. The dress she wore for her winter party was HORRIBLE. Good grief, what was she thinking! Trying way to hard to compete, and it is obvious she is older and needs to shed a few pounds. Not at all age appropriate.

 Alexis wins hands down.  Her dress was beautiful and fit perfectly well.  He lipstick color looked gorgeous with the dress, and her hair was perfect.  She looked like a class act!!

 ITA, Alexis looked fantastic!  She is my favorite anyway!  She has clean language, doesn't let the f-word fly like Tamara does.
