Dorit Kemsley explains the thought process behind her reunion fashion 

Considering the complexities of Dorit's reunion look, we made sure to get all the details of what went into the style from the fashionista herself. 

During an exclusive interview with backstage, Dorit shared that her reunion outfit was important this year considering what it symbolized: her return to more adventurous fashion after her traumatic home invasion in 2021. 

"The style [is] who I am, for sure, but pre-home invasion; more really having fun with fashion," Dorit shared about her Schiaparelli red gown that featured a hood-like detail and billowy sleeves

She continued: "The last couple of years, I feel like I found myself feeling like I wanted to be covered up a lot, and I think it mirrored what was happening inside of me; the vulnerability, and the fear, and a lot of the things that are associated with some of the feelings that I've had. I had some [fashion] moments, but I wasn't taking too many risks."

In addition to her backstage details, Dorit also noted she was going for a "fashion-forward" and "monochromatic" style that had a "surrealist" vibe. To get the look, the mom of two paired her statement-making sheath with red platform Balmain heels, Bottega Veneta jewelry, and thanked Steven Tabimba for her glam and Justine Marjan for her slicked back hair look.
