The Real Housewives of Orange County stunned in shocking, show-stopping fashion for the Season 15 sitdown.
‘Tis the season to slay, and The Real Housewives of Orange County cast just gifted us a sneak peek at their Season 15 reunion fashion. The ladies of the OC gathered around in glamorous looks that were black, white, and red-hot as they dished on this historic season.
With dramatic cutouts; sexy, sheer details; and sleek, short hemlines, each ensemble managed to shine even without sparkle. Old Hollywood vibes reigned supreme with curve-hugging drapery and trendy, hi-low touches. Also present: a slew of statement-making, edgy frocks (and one power jumpsuit) that took lace details and one-shoulder silhouettes to the next level.
The soapy sit-down was filled with hair and makeup looks that were both bold and beautiful — and each OC stunner put a fun twist on her signature style. Pin-straight strands; cascading, side-swept waves; and an epic high ponytail brought plenty of heat to cool, smokey eyes and lips in warm shades of wine.
Scroll down for Bravo Insider’s exclusive first glimpse at all the fabulous fashion worn by Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, Kelly Dodd, and Shannon Storms Beador for the Season 15 reunion.
The mom of seven stepped out in a moody Harper Couture black dress with strategic, floral appliqués and a scandalously short hemline that featured a runway-ready, sheer train. Stylist Isabelle Sabel added high-impact, black Gucci combat boots to the mix, and Braunwyn’s arms and ears were dripping with jewels from Messika, Suzanne Kalan, Bvlgari, and Roberto Coin.
But it was her sky-high ponytail, crafted by Chris Dylan, that had us doing a double take. Dylan whipped up a polished, platinum blonde pony (filled with extensions from The Uncommon Mane) that grazed Braunwyn’s waist, and he secured it with black leather. The glamazon-inspired style was complemented by Braunwyn’s tonal, smokey eye and nude lip designed by makeup artist Chelsea Roach.
Elizabeth Lyn Vargas
Newcomer Elizabeth opted for an ornate, cranberry gown (which was custom made by Gina’s Boutique from Paris!) with a high neckline, long sleeves, and a beaded, monochromatic pattern throughout the transparent overlay. A classic pair of strappy, black Valentino heels let her Peter Marco diamond jewelry shine brightest.
Hairstylist Gilbert Muniz lent his glam touch to Elizabeth’s sunny, blonde strands (with a little added help from extensions by The Hair Shop) with a strong center part and voluminous waves. Makeup artist Kristina Wright used shades of burgundy and pink with dashes of bronze to match Elizabeth’s wine-hued outfit.
Emily flaunted her figure in a form-fitted, cabernet-colored gown with a dramatic single shoulder, high-cut thigh slit, and train. The custom-made Ryan Patros number included delicate beading and ruched details that sizzled on the statuesque stunner. The ensemble was completed with nude Christian Louboutin heels, glittering earrings by Glynneth B jewelry and a massive sparkler by Alexis Bittar.
Danielle Jones of “Pure Beauty by Danielle” kept Emily’s hair and makeup timeless courtesy of long, face-framing, chestnut layers and a rich, shadowed eye.
A sophisticated catsuit is always a good idea — especially if it’s a modern take on the one-and-done jumpsuit like Gina’s Stella McCartney look with a sexy, asymmetrical cutout. Stylists Giolliosa and Natalie Fuller paired her contemporary outfit with vintage, gold shoes and glittering, crystal and metallic drop earrings from Glynneth B.
Kelly hopped aboard the asymmetrical train with her high-shine David Koma frock that boasted both a one-shoulder neckline and a peekaboo mini skirt with a mullet hem. Her black, sequin dress and coordinating, black, strappy Gucci steppers had notes of vintage influences with a contemporary spin — a look she styled all on her own. Roni Blanshay black and white diamond disc earrings stole the show with artful swirls.
Hair and makeup artist Kat Guevara went full screen siren glam with Kelly’s side-swept curls and smoldering, bronze smokey eye with matching lips.
Shannon Storms Beador
Twist! Shannon said sayonara to her signature pantsuit and instead went with a youthful, mod, white minidress with long sleeves and a high neckline. Shannon and stylist Gabriela Tena kicked up the Halpern number with sizable, satin Haiki platform shoes and earrings by Roni Blanshay. The mom's dark manicure popped against her handful of diamond rings by Barbara Ellick Jewelry and Gabriel and Company baubles.
But, Shannon's most surprising accessory came in the form of a dainty, pearl headband nestled in her icy, blonde strands, which served 60s-era swag. Her gorgeous coif was zhushed by hairstylist Laura Rugetti, and Pamela Brogardi was responsible for her angelic makeup look.
