If it’s true that the clothes make the man, then it’s doubly true that the clothes make the Housewife—particularly for Reunions.
And this year's The Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion does not disappoint in the couture department. Watch the 'Wives spill on what they're wearing this year.
All the usual suspects are there: Jimmy Choo, Herve Leger, Christian Louboutin. And we're loving Heather Dubrow in Victoria Beckham.
But the real stand out might be Gretchen Rossi in her sheer, mint, one sleeved, choker mini by Michael Costello—if only for this burn from Andy Cohen: "He was on Project Runway...when no one watched it, after Bravo." Looks like it's not only Housewives who throw Reunion shade.
Tell us in the comments: Who do you think had the best Reunion fashion?
Judging from what I just read, hopefully this marriage will last longer than 72 days. Eddie is having problems with his job and Tamara is getting her due .....it's about time.....Tamara "you are not above everyone else in this world, you are not the most beautiful or smartest or best actress of the year, sit back and try to be gracious like a lady and be a little repentant for all of those you have hurt or rather been so two faced with. Hoping by getting married, you will get a branch off of the RHOC, like Bethany, I hope not, cause even Bethany is not that well like and look how long her husband put up with her S_ _ t. Wake up and smell the roses.
I thought for the occasion that Alexis looked the best , definitely for the reunion show, sitting in our living rooms not dancing or putting on a fake show. I can't even remember what Tamara wore, because all I can ever see is her nasty two faced mouth moving. Vicky has it hard due to her age and size, but does try and fit in. the rest , well they were just there.............BUT as far as Gretchen looking gorgous in that misty,teal blue,greenish, beautiful gown/dress..this was not an Oscar dinner or party for the elite, it was a sit down talk , trash etc. way out of line, pretty yes, but not fitting for the occasion.
Vicki's dress is too tight, as usual. Gretchen looks beautiful in her dress. Lydia looks blah. Heather looks good in that color, dress is okay. Alexis looked extremely nice in her dress, loved the slightly flared skirt. Tamra looks like Tamra.
I believe Tamra likes to hand out with Vicki because Tamra will always stand out next to Vicki. When she hung out with Gretchen, she had competition in the looks department.
Tamra looked the best, and Lydia was a close second. Vicki, Vicki, Vicki ... don't care for her skin tight, squished in style. Heather and Alexis ... OK. Did not care for Gretchen's hair and makeup at all. Not so much the dress either ... could have looked better.
Best is Alexis...good style for her shape and good color on her...worst is Lydia..color washed her out and an awful style....Vicki wears her clothes too tight and too short... Love the Mint on Gretchen but not the choker... Tamara adorable and good color, Heather nice and conservative but a tad too long....
I think the bigger question is why does Vickie squeeze into her clothes? At least she didn't wear that horrible dress she wore to her party. I was embarrassed for her.
I found Gretchen's and Lydia's choice of dress to be very tacky. Not surprised with Gretchen's choice she tends to be "over stated". Lydia's choice was a surprise. Typically she looks great......that dress just wasn't her.
Gretchen, Tamra, and Alexis dress fabulously every time. Heather's matronly and boring. Vicki's choices are often unflattering. Lydia is spunky and quirky, which is quite likable at this point.
Lydia by far had the most on trend dress. Gretchen always thinks she is in a pageant and dresses that way. Thank god she didn't put feathers or fake flowers in her hair as she has been known to do. She doesn't know how to dress young. She dresses like she's been studying the sears catalog with her mom. At least Vicki's dress wasn't disgustingly tight and in poor taste. The rest were meh.
I think Tamra, Alexis and Vicki all wore their dresses too short, Vicki's was too tight. I loved Alexis' hair. Heather always wears boring dresses. They fit her great and the length is appropriate , just wish she would wear a little print or design as a compliment to the color. Heather's hair was blah. I love Lydia's hair. I love Gretchen's hair, but, I do like the shorter style she had been wearing.I think Gretchen's mint green or sea mist green dress was very refreshing to see.Too much of the pink already. Gretchen's dress complimented her beautiful eyes. I don't really like the style of the dress, but, it made her even look more feminine. Lydia's dress was the type of dress she wears well.
I didn't understand Gretchen's choice for this reunion. The piece around her neck is too much. The color of the dress is very nice. I don't care for Vicki's dress and the hem is showing in this photo. Heather's dress is a lovely color, but he design is confusing to me. Alexis's dress is okay. Lydia's dress is okay. I suppose Tamra's dress is the winner in my humble opinion.
I truly liked Gretchen's dress the most - it was very pretty and so Gretchen. The other ladies looked nice as well.
gretchen & alexis looked the best. vicky too tight and old timey, tamra & heather - same old same old & lydia - not so much
Gretchen looks like Dolly Parton back in the 70's.Loved Lydia's dress and always love her hair. Vicky looked nice. Alexis looked very nice-hair,make up and outfit. heather,well she is plain
grandmaforever are you kidding? you are knocking Gretchen's looks and say chipmonk and piggy look nice?? do you live on a farm?
Alexis had the best dress and makeup. I liked Gretchen's hair the best. Vicki's dress was way to tight. I am shocked she was able to sit down and not bust at the seams. Tamara must not own a hair brush because her hair looked a hot mess. Heather looked boring. Lydia's dress was wrinkled at the bottom. Not sure if that was on purpose of because of her sitting on the couch for so long.
I liked Vicki's dress, but what really made it was the fabulous neckless she wore. I loved it.
I actually liked Lydia's dress the best. And Alexis's hair. And neither one of them are my favorite women on the show. Tamera looked the same she always does. Bla. I didn't like Gretchens mint dress and too much makeup. The jewels on the dress and the choker were ugly. And I really like Gretchen for some reason :) Heathers hair could have been better. Doesn't she have lots of money for hairdresser too! Liked the color of Vickys dress and it was age appropriate. Which is kind of a back handed compliment. :)
Heather looked beautiful, elegant and classy--the only one who didn't look like a Christmas tree! The others were all overdone....less is more ladies!
I am so glad you did this blog.
Alexis looked stunning at this reunion. Her makeup and dress matched perfectly. She was drop dead gorgeous. She has an amazing presence on camera. It loves her. Just beautiful.
Tamra...well was Tamra. She never really looks any different no matter what she wears. It ok....
Vicky's dress was ok as well. On that picture the lining is showing but to tell the truth I don't think she cares much about clothes anyway. Maybe she will get a stylist in the future to make sure she shows off her figure in the best way. Or she really should ....lol lol lol....her shoes were nice.
Gretchen looked amazing in her dress. She loves clothes and looks good in anything she wears. Too much makeup.
Heather is also unimpressive in her clothes. They may be expensive but there is nothing about her style of dress that makes you take notice.
Lydia dresses nicely. But her shoes were beautiful. They looked so cute on her that night. She has beautiful hair which I liked that night as well.
Alexis and Tamara's dresses were too short. Tamara's seemed childish, but it could have been her behavior. Why can't Vicki find an outfit that fits correctly? It's too tight in the hips and something is hanging down from the inside if the skirt. The top should not have had the flair at the bottom. Gretchen's dress was exquisite. The tailoring, length, fit, and uniqueness made her stand out against the others. I don't care for the length or the cut out sleeve of heathers dress. It looks like it may not fit well with the gaps at the waist. Lydia's dress is a mess at the bottom. It is too long and wrinkled. When giving feedback, use specific details, instead of adjectives that are hollow.
@SallyAnne You know what? Your response was not specific enough. I am just tired of viewers saying they like or dislike something w/o telling why. Maybe the housewives will listen to their viewers. I was trying to be somewhat of a smartazz like heather, sallyAnne. Sorry to pizz you off.
Alexis and Tamra both look stunning, unfortunately Gretchen looks like she's going to the junior prom, Vicki's dress is too small but fits so much better than the white monstrosity she wore at her party....yikes! Heather and Lydia get a passing grade though both are a bit boring.
I really liked Michael Costello on Project Runway, but I was horrified to learn that Gretchen's dress was his creation!
