Following the event, Katie appeared on her new podcast, Disrespectfully, with Vanderpump Rules alum Dayna Kathan, and the pair spoke about how some people reacted to Katie's look for the party. 

"You would have thought I rolled myself in sh-t and covered myself in feathers the way people talk," Katie joked on the podcast, further explaining the thought process behind her style. 

"I like to wear stuff that maybe doesn't make sense to other people and is kind of taking a risk but [...] I like to experiment, I like to take risks," she shared. "Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I really don't care if everybody likes it. I like to wear what I like to wear and sometimes it makes sense to people [but] ... it's not gonna make sense to everybody, though."

Katie and Dayna continued by commenting on how some of the critiques were particularly unwelcome. 

"I think some people are like, 'She just doesn't know how to dress for her body.' And when people try and make those comments about not dressing for your body ... first of all, shut the f-ck up," Katie explained, to which Dayna agreed, "Shut the f-ck up immediately."
