It's no secret that style runs in Kyle Richards' family. The boutique owner and mom talks frequently about the style lessons she learned from her own mom, and Kyle herself has helped turn her daughter Portia Umansky into a budding style star. (That eight-year-old Portia has a seasoned eye for shopping has been well documented on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.) But, though she already has an enviable mini wardrobe, Portia's loathe to put down her favorite leggings. Honestly? Same.
That's where Kyle comes in. "I [tell her] 'you have so many cute clothes, what you need to do is have more fun with it," Kyle told The Lookbook. "I know you love black leggings, which is great. But why don't you shake it up a little bit, and try different looks?" Kyle even clips fashion photos for her daughter, showing her looks that will stir up some fashion inspiration. Can we get that service, please?
"I want [Portia] to feel free to express herself," Kyle said. And from the outfits Portia has—which include a leopard-print topper and a glittery party skirt—it's clear she's already got a grasp on her personal style.
