Erika Jayne usually gets the “enigma” label on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But when you look at the literal definition of enigma, “a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand”, it doesn’t really apply to Erika. Because one thing she isn’t is complex. But you know who really deserves the title of enigma?
Dorit Kemsley is an enigma wrapped in lawsuits and rental properties. Dorit wears a coat of many colors. She is a wife and mother. She is fashion maven. But above all else, Dorit is a… DESIGNER. Need a bathing suit made of hankies? Dorit is there for you. Need a room to transport you to the Isle of Capri? Dorit can handle that too. Now Dorit is lending her gift to another venture. Friends, Dorit is answering the prayers of brides everywhere. STEP ASIDE, Vera Wang, for Dorit Kemsley has entered the group chat.
Even though Dorit was at the center of what historians will call “the winter of RHOBH’s discontent” thanks to a dodgy dog adoption, last season found Dorit somewhat redeeming herself. Basically she didn’t take any of Kyle Richards’ shit and fans were here for it. Unlike Kyle, Dorit is no stranger to fashion. We’ve seen her don haute couture labels like Alexander McQueen, Balmain, and CHA NEL. Now Dorit is lending her eye to another branch of the depeche mode tree, wedding gowns.
Dorit made the announcement via her Instagram. Pictured in a draped, lacey frock, that was definitely not taken off your nana’s supper table, Dorit wrote, “Below are 2 lies and 1 truth. Can you guess the truth?
1) I’m renewing my wedding vows with @paul_kemsley_pk
2) I’m helping a friend choose a wedding gown
3) I’m designing a range of wedding dresses

If you chose 3, you’re right! I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been working on a new collection of wedding dresses, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, little girls, bridal accessories and more; as part of my Dorit x @nektaria_official collection coming soon!” Then the world took a collective gasp of sheer glee and delight. Honeys, I don’t know what we did to deserve such a gift, but here we are.
Following in the footsteps of celebrated design houses like, Kyle x Shahida, She by Shereé, and Sonja by Sonja Morgan – now we have, Buca di Bridal? No I’m sorry, it’s The Dorit Kemsley Collection x Neketria. It looks as if the first beautiful sample piece is a nod to the nude illusion trend from four years ago. And even though this particular number might be more here comes my ass than here comes the bride, Dorit is a vision of loveliness.
Dorit added, “It’s been such a thrill to pour my heart into designing all these fierce, show stopping pieces. The fabrics and craftsmanship are world class and my creativity and inspiration have been on [fire] since I started this collection. I cannot wait to share more with you but in the meantime check out all of the incredible pieces that @nektaria_official has available in her current collection such as this stunning wedding gown featured here.” Well I for one am on the edge of my seat. Cocktail dresses? Evening gowns? ACCESSORIES? Shut up and take my money.
One thing I’m sure of, Dorit will be VERY involved in the design and production of her new line. Not like SOME people who produced caftans they had never seen before. And allow me to go on record right now and say if we don’t get some heavily Bedazzled statement hair clips spelling out I and DO, then who is Dorit Kemsley in this world?

Well folks, RHOBH will be giving us some new faces next season, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Kathy Hilton, Kyle – but now we really have something to look forward to. Stay tuned, won’t you, because this time we will absolutely have a fashion show with actual fashion.
