When Kathy Hilton joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend for Season 11, she had a few surprises in store. For one, Kyle Richards' big sis had expected some of the drama to be manufactured, but she quickly learned that it's all very, very real. And so is the elevated dress code.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

When chatting with Town & Country about her debut season, Kathy dished on the designer fashion that the ladies love to wear. Reacting to Kyle coming into her room in Lake Tahoe to check out her sister's vacation wardrobe, Kathy said: "She always does that! And I’m like, 'Kyle, this is not a fashion show.'” 

She also reflected on the lewks at Dorit Kemsley's intimate backyard bash, which was featured on the May 19 episode. (See the clip above.) "For the first episode, I went to Dorit’s for a barbecue," Kathy said. "I thought I looked pretty nice; I had on a silk flowy dress and espadrilles. I mean, that’s pretty nice for a barbecue! And I could not believe it. I walked in and all of these women — ­they looked absolutely gorgeous — it was like New York Fashion week meets Paris couture shows meets the red carpet at the Oscars. Gucci and Balmain and Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Unbelievable."
