“HUNT for the perfect wedding dress,” she captioned the post, followed by the “wedding” and “dresses” hashtags.

The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip alum confirmed her engagement in July of 2023, about 16 years after she finalized her divorce from Gilles Bensimon. She and the fashion photographer tied the knot in 1997 and went on to welcome two daughters together: Sea Louise Bensimon and Thadeus “Teddy” Ann Bensimon.

Kelly’s now-fiancé, Scott Litner, popped the question last year during their summer getaway to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The financier presented Kelly with a gorgeous emerald-cut diamond engagement ring (see above) and celebrated the new chapter “with a quiet romantic dinner” in Chicago.

“I never thought that I could be so happy at this stage in my life, this is truly a new beginning,” Kelly told E! News just days after Scott’s proposal.“We have a romance that people write novels about.”

Several months later, Kelly told People magazine that she and Scott were planning two weddings, one of which was set for June 22, 2024. A smaller, more intimate ceremony will take place in the backyard of Scott’s family home, while the second will be a much bigger celebration in the Hamptons. 

“So we’re working on setting dates for all of that. Why have one when you can have two?” she told the outlet back in December. “When this first started I was like, I’m going to be so relaxed about this. I’m going to be like, the coolest bride ever.’ But then I started doing it. At this point, I think I might just become a total brideszilla! I just think I could really wear those shoes well.”
