Whether you adore her luscious locks, tendency to do the tipsy splits and flare for middle age glitter or despise her for these reasons, you have to give the girl credit because she knows how to throw a party. Whether it's a seance, an eighth grade graduation or a cinco de mayo fiesta she brings out her jovial pal Glenn and makes it happen complete with a Fat Burger booth, an disinvite and a toss into the pool!
I love a Kyle Richards party, and in the past three years there have been quite a few. I've always felt bad for the neighbors, there's a slew of limos that pull up to the valet. A valet?! Where are they parking these cars? If I had a valet in my neighborhood they would have to park the cars at HEB, but would the valet guys run that far back to my house? I assume all of the neighbors would have to be invited otherwise wouldn't they call BH police with a noise complaint? And how is it there is no step and repeat? As fame seeking as most reality stars are, wouldn't it be the perfect chance to get more papparazzo there? I would assume the step and repeat would be a little better than the one at the Gorga Christmas party where there was a step and repeat board, but no photographers. So sad.
And so it was the white party in season one that had me hooked to RHOBH. Granted, I thought it was a complete knock off of Puff Daddy's (What are we calling him these days?) Hampton's White party, but I could still appreciate it none the less, because I love breezy summer white attire. Summer shorts and skirts are my favorite. I had a short, frilly white skirt in college that I wore so much that I referred to it as my "going out" uniform. (I recently gave it to Goodwill, despite the fact I hadn't worn it in over five years!) And nothing gets me more giddy than a cute, white dress. I even thought of throwing my own white party but a.) most of my friends would laugh at me trying to emulate a D list celebrity and b.) majority of my friends have children under the age of five so I don't think that would end too well.
While the white party hasn't been as fun and lighthearted as it was in season one, thank you Maloof and Nassif, critiquing the fashion is still fun nonetheless. Some of the dresses are gorgeous, and others I think, why would you wear that when you can wear anything white?
So lets take a look at some of these white styles, shall we?
|Brandi and Camille: Season 2|
|Kyle Richards: Season 2|
|Dana Wilkey: Season 2|
|Lisa Vanderpump: Season 2|
|Taylor Armstrong: Season 1|
|Camille and Lisa: Season 1|
|Adrienne Maloof: Season 1|

|Kim Richards: Season 1|
|Kim Richards: Season 2|
|Taylor Armstrong: Season 2|
Despite getting kicked out of the party before even stepping her foot in the door, Taylor has to have one of the more memorable styles from all three white parties. I LOVE the statement peacock earrings, they go so well against the white dress. And the length of the dress contrasts well with all the exposure from the top and then throw in some frills and I'm in love. I also like the simple, sleeked back hair, juxtaposes the earrings nicely. Kudos to your stylist, Taylor. Too bad they wouldn't let you in!
|Kyle Richards: Season 1|
And can we all acknowledge how cute Kyle's getting ready for a party dress she had on? It's a Lisa Rinna original from her line for QVC. And it's the second time this season Kyle has worn it, a housewife first! It slightly resembles a Mrs. Roper moo moo, but in trendy and modern fashion. And love that she had flip flops, her hair pulled back, sunglasses and no make-up with it!
And where was my love, Yolanda? Have I professed my adoration with her and her shhhushing the other housewives? No, I don't believe I have. The party was definitely missing a Dutch model who gets baby animal cells shot into her back and laments how she doesn't have enough money to buy her daughter three horses as opposed to just one. I think this dress in white would have been perfect on her!
And now we must wait until next year, assuming Kyle is offered and signs her contract next year, to see more white party fashion. She needs a platform to advertise her store Kyle by Alene Too, so why not sign on for next year? Maybe she'll even have a section of the store dedicated to white party attire? You've got a love the pedal pushing products of Housewives. At least Kyle's clothing boutique is a little better than Cynthia Bailey's Moscato!
