It’s undoubtedly not the first time, nor will it be the last, where some latex wardrobe was featured front and center on one of the lady stars of one of Bravo’s various Real Housewives shows. This week, though, there was a good amount of our favorite textile both seen and even talked about in connection with the Bravo hit series.
First was the much-heralded return of the “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”. The opening show of West Coast-centered season 13 was the usual ‘spilling tea” affair, with participants Kyle Richards, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutten Stracke, Dorit Kemsley, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Erika Jayne, and newest cast member Annemarie Wiley, showing off in their finest frocker-y. If one suddenly came upon one of these Housewives’ shows, especially RHOBH, the casual viewer would conclude that the show is as much about fashion as it is gossip. The women were just resplendent in their outfits this time out, be it for casual get-togethers in parks, at each other’s houses, or in the famous ‘confessional’ solo one-on-one camera moments, these shows are known for.
To this end, the housewife who needs to be called out, again and again for her alt. sartorial choices (and many latex ones), is singer Erika Jayne, who we have seen glimpses of wearing a bright pink latex dress for one of her upcoming season 13 confessionals. As a performer, Jayne is well known to step out in sexy costumes, often latex, but this long-sleeved pink latex sheath dress with its white cuffs, color, and printed tie is outstanding.
But in the actual first show, Kyle Richards (child star of the original “Halloween” movie, to name drop for this time of year) wore latex when attending a dinner at fellow housewife Dorit Kemsely’s house.
Another Housewife, Jenna Lyons, who stars in “The ‘Real Housewives of New York City,’ wasn’t as much seen in latex this week…as she talked about it.
Talking on The Run-Through with Vogue podcast this week, the RHONYC star, also an ex-J. Crew creative director, spoke about the trials and tribulations when wearing some latex couture during Paris Fashion Week just past.
In September, Lyons attended Usher’s PFW party in a latex one-piece, but as she said, feeling so overly lubed and stuck in her outfit that she compared herself on the podcast to a real life sex toy.
One does need to be careful with the lube as much as what latex outfit one wears.
Surely, this will not be all we hear and see about our favorite textile and the infamous Housewives. Stay tunes, lubed or not.
