Your First Look at The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17

Back in March, Andy Cohen had some juicy news to share on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Orange County on Peacock or the Bravo App.

"This next season is really good," Andy said of Season 17 of RHOC during the episode. "I promise, it is a return to form."

While Season 17 brings back familiar OC vibes, with RHOC alum Tamra Judge making her triumphant return, fresh energy abounds. Brand new housewife Jennifer Pedranti joins returning cast Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, plus The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsTaylor Armstrong joins as a friend of the group

With that zestful new energy comes a vibrant cast photo with stunning ensembles as fresh as a Pacific breeze. For the shoot, which featured elegant architectural details (and plenty of oranges, of course), each 'Wife served up golden glamour with mini dresses, suit sets, classic frocks, and curve-hugging gowns in a variety of fabrics, tones, and chic cuts. 

As you can see in the photos below, every West Coast gal brought the heat, with Gina, Heather, and Shannon rocking sunny yellow styles each punctuated by their fabulous accessories. Shannon's canary-colored velvet suit dazzled with elements of silver while Gina's sparkly gold boots and numerous necklaces provided the perfect pop to her long-sleeved mini dress. Heather, for her part, accessorized her sophisticated pleated halter number with intentional ice and long white square-shaped nails. 

Striking-yet-serene blues rounded out the group with Tamra, Jennifer, and Taylor, as the latter two women both beamed in sky-colored frocks and wavy blonde tresses, with Jennifer pairing her halter-neck mini dress with gold strappy peep toe heels. Tamra, who began her tenure on RHOC in Season 3, cemented her comeback kid status in a flouncy cerulean top and matching pants, completing her look with gold peep toe platforms. 

But what would an RHOC cast photo be without some singular orange flavor? Enter Emily, who rocked a form-fitting one-shoulder gown in a bright tangerine hue. The California mom topped off her noteworthy number, featuring a high-leg slit and ruffle detail, with gold strappy heels and several gold chain necklaces, wearing her sun-kissed chestnut locks in luscious loose waves.
