Ariana Madix Makes Her Love Island Debut in an Eye-Popping Fringed Aqua Dress

The Vanderpump Rules beauty showed off an incredibly sexy style for an appearance on one of her favorite shows. 

By Cynthia Robinson

During Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules, Ariana Madix expressed her fandom for Love Island, which became an instantly relatable moment for fans. After expressing those sentiments, Ariana went on to make an appearance on Peacock’s Love Island USA in an epic crossover we didn’t know we needed. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

“Hey, Islanders!” the blonde beauty exclaimed on Season 5 Episode 8 on July 25, shocking the group upon her arrival. 

Hannah Wright, in particular, was in delighted awe of Ariana’s debut on the show, gushing in a confessional interview, “[I’ve] literally [been] watching her on Vanderpump [Rules] for years. Like, she’s just an icon. You look up ‘bad bitch’ in the dictionary, you gonna see a picture of Ariana.”

In addition to goading the Islanders along to their forthcoming activities (including Ariana’s “favorite ever” game, “Mr. and Mrs.”), Ariana served up an incredible smoldering style that admittedly made us do a double take.

For her debut, Ariana rocked a fringed aqua halter dress from Cult Gaia ($1,174) that featured a curved hem as well as front and back slits.

The sandwich shop co-owner turned up the sexy-glam vibes with lightly tousled blonde waves, several rings, and long acrylic nails. She completed her look with strappy gold heels.  

“[I] left los angeles watching [Love Island USA] and landed in fiji bringing unexpected surprises to the villa!” Ariana exclaimed in the caption of an Instagram post of the photos.

“OK BARBIE,” Scheana Shay wrote in support, while Ally Lewber gushed, “You’re perfectttt! Cannot wait to watch.”

Moreover, a peek from the episode also showed us the frock’s skin-baring back, which gave even more flirtatious vibes to the overall style.

On the days leading up to Episode 8, Ariana continued to drop tidbits about her appearance, taking to Instagram in one July 25 post to tease the episode and look gorgeous, of course. 

“[I] can’t believe i’m popping in the [Love Island USA] villa this week! like.. i am GATHERED around the fire pit! you can watch the fun on [Peacock],” she captioned a photo in which she rocked a crystal-embellished white minidress by Area ($995) that featured numerous cutouts around the midriff. 

The fashion maven paired her playful look with lightly tousled blonde waves, soft and smoky eye glam, and beautiful metallic silver heels from Jessica Simpson ($65) that featured studded embellishments and elegant straps.
