Do yourself a favor and take a few minutes today to hear this week's episode of Glamour's What I Wore When podcast, during which Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley tell the downright wild story of an Alexander McQueen dress she impulse-bought in Las Vegas during her wedding weekend. The dress—red, tight, and "worth every penny"—has now become known as the "baby-making dress" for reasons we can all infer.
As a functioning Bravo-holic, I was particularly eager to chat with Kemsley, who joined RHOBH in 2016 and became a fan favorite thanks to her playful approach to style, her loyal family, and, yep, her slightly ambiguous accent. She was fun, forthcoming, and impressively self-aware during our hour together, and we covered a lot of ground including her rationale for buying clothes and shoes and bags well into the thousands of dollars, her lifestyle brand Beverly Beach, the Champion sweatshirts she loved as a teenager in Connecticut, how motherhood has impacted her style, and why the Real Housewives always seems to look better and better every season.
Second to her baby-making-dress story, I was especially intrigued by Kemsley's honesty about wanting to look good for her husband, and how dressing for him, in a lot of ways, is really dressing for herself. I think a lot of women would be afraid to admit that publicly—wanting to look great for a man—and I so appreciated her perspective.
