On Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Lisa Rinna showed off her vast and gorgeous collection of vintage dresses. But the location of chic and stylish clothes may surprise you.
“It’s so silly, but it’s here in the garage,” she told her daughter, Delilah Hamlin, via FaceTime.
His 23-year-old daughter replied, “The fact that he’s just sitting in your garage …”
“You know what, I have to deal with this situation,” Rinna replied. “I’m not kidding. All my good dresses are here. It’s even on a hanger!”
Rinna, 58, was showing off her extensive collection in hopes of passing some of the items on to her daughters, who are both aspiring models and fashion entrepreneurs themselves.
“Some parents pass on collections of guns, collections of stamps,” she explained in an interview. “I pass along vintage dresses.”
She added: “No one has ever asked me and no one has ever said, ‘I want to wear them’.”
About why they’re in the garage, Rinna explained, “You don’t want these dresses in your main closet because there was no room… at least not in my main closet. is in the garage, and it’s not fancy, and it’s dirty and it’s not cute. “
“But they’re all protected, they’re covered and they’re fine,” she added. “Now I have locks and padlocks and things on these doors, so don’t think about coming for my dresses!” They are locked. “
The first dress she showed off was a black, diamond-beaded Herve Leger dress she wore to the 10th Soap Opera Digest Awards in 1994.
“This dress was $ 5,000 when we bought it, so it’s probably worth $ 20,000 now,” she told her daughter. “It’s an original Hervé Léger. I mean, they don’t even make them anymore.”
Then she showed off a Versace dress that Gianni Versace designed for herself when she was pregnant with Delilah on the red carpet at a 1998 Oscar party. “I’m like an organized hoarder,” she said. she declared. “I knew exactly where it was.”
“When we finally got the dress with my pregnancy, I had put on weight and it didn’t fit in the back,” she said in an interview. “So Harry runs to the garage and takes a pair of pliers, and somehow is able to mend the dress in the back and fit it, of course.”
Finally, Rinna showed off a white Gucci dress designed by Tom Ford, which was hiding behind a gas can.
“You guys always thought I was weird, and now you all of a sudden think I’m cool because you realize how good I am,” she told her. daughter, who gushed precious items in her mother’s closet. … we mean garage.
“I worked hard on these dresses, bought them myself and I’m an only child. I don’t like to share. So keeping those dresses to share with the girls is a big me. “
She added: “My expectations are not high. I think it will be an Instagram photo and forgotten.”
And she might be on to something. In January, Rinna shared an Instagram photo of Delilah wearing the Versace dress she wore when she was pregnant with her. She captioned the photo in part, “Can you believe it ?!”
