Another week, another Real Housewives of New York whirlwind of sartorial insanity. This week, we’ve got some real gems. Sonja performed in a “caburlesque” show wearing a feather bolero and no pants! Kristen wore a ridiculous bathing suit and no pants! Heather wore a negligee to the beach and no pants! Legz … well, Legz wore pants, because Legz is very proper like that. Anyway, let’s get on with it! To the slideshow!
This week’s Real Housewives of New York City fashion recap is coming to you a few days late. This is because Bravo inexplicably started making viewers pay for new episodes online or enter their “cable provider credentials,” which naturally I do not know. (I even engaged in an IM chat with a Comcast customer service representative to figure out my login password! This is what I do for you!) But I say better late than never, so let’s dig in!
Let’s press pause on our Philly shopping coverage for a moment and bask in the fabulousness that is week two of the Real Housewives of New York. To sum it all up: Carole does not think imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but she does like very tall gladiator heels; Legz has never met a button-up she didn’t like; Heather is still trying to recapture her glory days of working at Bad Boy via very large hoop earrings; Sonja wears a bathing suit; Kristen wears her birthday suit; and Ramona wears a cute dress that is shockingly not ruched or satin. Let the fashion recapping begin!
I first met Autumn Kietponglert over a year ago while she was a designer in the inaugural class of the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator, a design program in which four designers are chosen for a year mentorship, with provided studio space in Macy’s Center City and invaluable meetings and mentorships with leading experts in the industry. Her pieces at the PFI studio were incredible; they stood out for the very fact that few people could actually pull most of them off: massive, Edwardian-esque scultptural collars made of zippers; gothic corsets reminiscent of a Tim Burton movie; voluminous couture creations. It’s the stuff of rock stars.
Jennifer Carroll was out around town this weekend celebrating her birthday with family and friends. Who else showed up for the festivities? We hear it was a film crew from Bravo. No word on whether Carroll’s getting her own show or something else.
