Ariana Madix Shares Surprising Details About Her "Naked" VPR Season 11 Reunion Dress

We weren't expecting the Vanderpump Rules cast member's interesting fact about her sheer LaQuan Smith look.

By Cynthia Robinson

For the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion, which took place in March 2023, Ariana Madix broke the internet with her smoldering, scarlet two-piece Mônot set (aka her "revenge dress"). 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

This year, for the Vanderpump Rules Season 11 reunion, Ariana's reunion dress was a jaw-dropping two-piece number that wasn't actually a dress at all: It was a sheer, navy blue, long-sleeved halter bodysuit and maxi skirt by LaQuan Smith.

Speaking with backstage before the reunion, the blonde beauty revealed an interesting fact about her outfit we definitely weren't expecting.

"My reunion look today was chosen based on just... what fit and what looked good!" Ariana smiled, while speaking with us before the sit-down with her castmates. "There were a lot of things that came in that just didn't fit so... it's gorgeous, I love it! But that [was also] a big factor."

Ariana, who also told us her "super vixen" set was aiming for a "futuristic" and "naked" look, paired the stunning, see-through pieces with Alexandre Birman heels, Bottega Veneta earrings, XIV Karats rings and anklets.

Speaking of that "revenge dress" from last year (which was actually a two-piece set), we wanted to revisit that incredible look, which Ariana paired with a sleek, short light blonde cut, several sparkly rings, and long red nails.

For the Season 7 sit-down, Ariana stole the show in a sunny, knee-length one-shoulder frock with a curve-hugging silhouette, accessorizing with black-and-white snake-print sandals, statement rings, drop earrings, and a dainty necklace by Kyle Chan.

Flashing back to Season 5, Ariana's blue pencil dress in various shades of blue with an intricate netted overlay and long sleeves was paired with sparkly pointed-toe pumps and a lightly tousled half-up hairdo.

For her reunion debut in Season 2, Ariana opted for a sophisticated black blazer minidress with a low-cut neckline, a leather-like lapel, and a voluminous high ponytail which gave way to fishtail braid.
