We're calling it: The swimsuit trend of the summer for Bravolebs has to be wild animal print. All summer long, we've been noticing that leopard print swimwear has been a favorite among the ladies of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Just check out OC daughter Briana Culberson's leopard tank swimsuit, Kelly Dodd's strappy leopard one-piece, and Emily Simpson's belted leopard swimsuit.
But the trend extends far beyond the OC. The Real Housewives of New York City mogul Bethenny Frankel's plunging cheetah one-piece might be her hottest swimsuit yet, while The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks donned a similar, super-sexy cheetah swimsuit with cut-outs.
The latest Bravoleb to try this fierce trend is Kelly Killoren Bensimono. The Real Housewives of New York City alum just Instagrammed herself rocking a tiny string bikini by designer Melissa Odabash while on vacation in the French Riviera. Kelly's Cancun Cheetah classic triangle string bikini with matching bottoms is on sale for $161.
