The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies are ready to sit on the couch with Andy Cohen as Newport Beach highlights the stage. Naturally, all the RHOC women came to slay with perfectly styled outfits that had outdone their last reunion. Part one was stressful, as the women went at one another, leaving no room for interpretation. Here’s what we think of the RHOC Season 17 reunion looks.

If fans weren’t concentrating hard enough, they could have mistaken Shannon Beador’s My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding hair for Teresa Giudice going blonde. Thankfully, Shannon’s dress, which was a style she had never tried before, paid off as she did her best to link it to her bowl of lemons—iconic.

The long-sleeved canary yellow dress was made by Giuseppe di Morabito and set her back a total of $1,287. The dress hugged Shannon in all the right spots, with the sheer part of the calf showing off her legs. Shannon rounded out her look with a California glow, which translates to a nice spray tan. 

Jennifer Pedranti  Clifton Prescod/Bravo

The group’s newbie didn’t get Edna Mode’s memo about “no capes!” Jennifer Pedranti might have been a superhero to the series, as fans felt she was a breath of fresh air. However, she came across as the villain of her own story thanks to breaking up her family due to cheating. The blue silk mini highlighted Jen’s yoga legs, but I felt she could have done better with her look overall. 

The look was sleek, including her slicked-back blonde hair, but the Alex Perry dress didn’t seem worth the $2,000 price tag. The exaggerated shoulders added some unflattering angles. Like most accessories, the cape just hung on Jen’s small frame and didn’t give off reunion vibes. I can’t help but wonder if Ryan Boyajian helped pick this little number out.

I don’t necessarily have an issue with Heather Dubrow’s dress, but I wish she had made more of an effort for the reunion special. The vibe is very much Barbie versus Oppenheimer, with the mother of four daring to stun in black. It looks like Heather chose comfort over style, which sort of makes sense. She has been through the wringer this season. 

It is clear that Heather wanted to feel more like herself than a dolled-up version, and I agree the dress fit like a glove. The black cutout dress made by Chiara Boni definitely gave off classy instead of trashy vibes. 

Tamra Judge Clifton Prescod/Bravo via Getty Images

Little Miss Barbie—Tamra Judge came in for the win with her hot pink maxi dress. This was the first time Tamra has worn a long dress to the reunion couch, but the very high slip still made her feel at home as she was able to show off one toned leg. The Nookie dress was reasonably priced at $279, giving Tamra a youthful vibe. Between the long sleeves, color, and fit, the dress really suited the spitfire of the OC.

Emily Simpson Jocelyn Prescod/Bravo

Real Housewives of Orange County viewers have watched Emily Simpson slim down over the last few months, so it didn’t come as a surprise to see the mother of three wearing a slinky glitzy number. I didn’t hate the color and curve-hugging top as it reminded me of a tank top I used to own during the Y2K era. Emily has lost 40 pounds and gained a lot of confidence, so it makes sense that she wanted to show off her hard work.

The coral color was such a great choice to compliment Emily’s dark locks with the turtleneck top, adding a bit of a dramatic flair. The House of Zhivago dress, aptly called the Algeny Dress, will set you back $550 but is still pretty affordable. Emily dressed for her age as the stretch Jersey and satin halter neck came across as a well-structured design.

What can I say about Gina Kirschenheiter’s dress—I LOVE IT. I love everything about this dress, from the color to the sparkle to the fit. I’m plotzing over here with how much I am living for this dress. I’d buy my own if it weren’t going to cost me $1,698 for the David Koma design. The deep plunge is everything, and the mini length shows off Gina’s long limbs.

Gina is giving off a celestial goddess meets disco look, and I am here for it. The dress carves out the contours of Gina’s frame in such a muse-like way that the look almost feels radical. The dress embraces Gina’s spirit as she is youthful, fun, and beautiful, all warped up in the neon green garment.
