Andy Cohen Says Early 'Real Housewives' Fashion Was 'Just Terrible'

“In the early of Orange County, the fashion was just terrible,” he told the outlet. “If you look at the first few years of reunions, Orange County, Atlanta and New York, they were basically wearing — I don’t even think what they would wear to a cocktail party. I think it was more what they might wear to a PTA meeting.”

He went on to say that the stars of their respective franchises had definitely stepped it up since then.

“I think people have loved seeing what they wear now,” Andy added. “They were meant to be aspirational and that’s what they are.”

Leah McSweeney, Luann de Lesseps, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Gizelle Bryant, Wendy Osefo and Karen Huger recently made an appearance on Project Runway, with the designers being tasked to create a reunion dress for each cast member.

“For the Housewives, getting ready for a reunion — this is like their prom dress. So in that same way, I think it makes for a logical challenge,” Andy explained. “I love the dynamics that play out when you have a Housewife as a client to a designer and seeing the interaction between the Housewives and the designer who wants to win the challenge.”
