The Most Inappropriate Outfits Real Housewives' Stars Have Ever Worn

The Dictionary defines "inappropriate" as "not proper or suitable." That being said, when looking at all the outfits that have ever been worn by stars of "The Real Housewives" franchise, there are a couple of ways that some have been not entirely appropriate.

First up, there is cultural appropriation, for which some of these Bravolebrities have been in hot water for their outfit choices in relation to other cultures and races. 

Once, Tanya Sam of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" wore a kimono and a high bun, while holding her hands in a prayer pose, speaking in an Asian cadence, bowing, and fluttering her eyelashes. When the "RHOC" ladies traveled to Jamaica, they wore Rastafarian caps with faux dreadlocks. 

In Potomac, Monique Samuels wore a Native American headdress to a themed party. Erika Girardi of Beverly Hills dressed as a geisha in Japan. On "The Real Housewives of New York City," Luann de Lesseps used an afro and bronzer to dress up as Diana Ross for Halloween (via Femestella).

A few revealing looks have been worn by the Housewives

There are also looks worn by Real Housewives that could be called inappropriate, due to how revealing they are.

When Joanna Krupa was on "The Real Housewives of Miami" and ws engaged to Romain Zago, she wore a see-through top on a date night (via The Daily Mail). When dancing around with her kids on Instagram, Dorit Kemsley of "RHOBH" wore a see-through white dress, while ex-Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Brandi Glanville had a nip slip during the season five finale (via Hollywood Life). Shamea Morton, who appears on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" also went for a revealing option once, when she wore a sheer dress to Cynthia Bailey's elegant wedding, as reported by MTO News.

The list goes on and on, and while we are all for artistic expression, we do think people should prefer outfits that aren't offensive to certain groups and ones that avoid wardrobe malfunctions!

Showing up in the same outfit (yikes!)

No one wants to show up to an event wearing the same outfit as another person. Accidental twinning moments are just for twins, but not the Housewives.

Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and Robyn Dixon have all been seen in the same pink blazer dress (via Bravo TV), while Rinna also matched with Kyle Richards in a polka-dot dress (via People). Though a potential squabble situation, Rinna took the moment to laugh at the duo in good humor. She shared a photo of her and Kyle in their matching dresses and wrote in the caption, "No we didn't plan it."

There is also the art of over-dressing, which some have perfected. Kathy Hilton, who recently joined "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," was shocked at how dressed-up her castmates got for casual events. "Kyle, this is not a fashion show," she reportedly told her sister (via Heavy). Denise Richards also preferred casual looks, versus the other Housewives' glam ensembles, resulting in her being called a "ragamuffin" (via The Sun). Then, Denise was criticized by some for the mini-romper she wore on her wedding day (via Today), while other stars of the franchise have spent over $50,000 on wedding gowns, which has been an understandable shock to many viewers (via Slice).

The Housewives don't care about thoughts from viewers

Clinical psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner wrote "You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You," and she shared her thoughts with Forbes on how "The Real Housewives" stars dress. 

"Look at the way they focus on money," Baumgartner  explained. "When they fight, they use logos and designers as a way to put each other down. They're using clothes and accessories both as a tool to know where they fit in and as a weapon against others." In 2006, the Orange County Register reported that clothes seen on "The Real Housewives Of Orange County" led to many colorful comments from fans. 

"Why do all these mothers dress like they're 18? All those tight halter tops/jeans/high heels is nauseating. It makes me wonder how old these gals are going to be when they finally decide they're too old to wear halter tops," one fan wrote. Another added, "Trying that hard to look young only makes you look old and desperate." 

In response to thoughts about her attire, Kimberly Bryant stated, "I don't care what other women think," while Vicki Gunvalson simply noted, "I want to make myself happy."
