She may have missed a few seasons of RHONY, but one thing Bethenny Frankel’s never missed, is an opportunity to slay on the red carpet. From body-con minis to elegant floor-length gowns, this housewife is a fashion star for a reason.
Since being introduced to one of our favourite housewives in 2008 (sorry y’all, but it’s true), we’ve closely followed Bethenny’s sartorial journey. Because it’s a new season (the show and spring!), we’re taking a look back at some of Bethenny’s most memorable fashion moments.

Red, red wine
Bethenny looked absolutely gorgeous in this floor-length wine-coloured gown at the 2016 Breast Cancer Research Foundation's Hot Pink Party in April.

Attending a gala hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, Bethenny looked both sexy and sophisticated in this mid-length LBD.
3 / 50
Living on the edge
In probably one of her edgiest looks yet, Bethenny said goodbye to her brown hair in favour of a bright red 'do, which perfectly complemented her black-and-white jumpsuit.

Black and white
Clearly one of her favourite colour combinations, Bethenny dons another black-and-white get-up during Advertising Week 2015 in New York City.
5 / 50
We're not sure what we love more: how killer Bethenny looks in a crop top (at 45, no less!) or how wicked she looks in that bright pink lipstick.

Now this, friends, is how you rock a suit on a red carpet. And that shade of purple? Swoon.
7 / 50
Dots for days
Another Skinnygirl launch party, another gorgeous getup from Ms. B; this LBD with metallic polka dots is a winning combo for the CEO.
8 / 50
Jumping for jumpsuits
Bethenny is a big fan of jumpsuits and we can see why. They flatter her amazing figure, and look super chic.
9 / 50
Lady in red
Another one of Bethenny's go-to shades on the red carpet is--wait for it!--red. The colour looks amazing on her.
10 / 50
If anyone can make a business-appropriate outfit work for a fashion party, it's Bethenny.
11 / 50
Talk about a glamorous moment! Bethenny looks ethereal in this beige and silver evening gown.

Pretty in pink
It's not easy to wear baby pink on a red carpet, but if anyone can do it, Bethenny can.
13 / 50
Green with envy
This isn't one of Bethenny's go-to shades, but we think it should be. (We hope her stylist is listening.)
14 / 50
Rock ‘n’ roll
This rock glam look is one of our faves.
15 / 50
Sexy in sequins
Embellished skirts had a big moment in 2014, and big surprise, Bethenny was ahead of the trend, wearing one to the one-year anniversary of the 40/40 club in June 2013.
16 / 50
Another LBD win for Bethenny, this one-sleeved black dress was a perfect choice for the Daytime Emmy Awards in 2013.
17 / 50
Bravo for beads
If you need a way to glam up a black-and-white mini, do as Bethenny does, and go for a beaded number.
18 / 50
Bethenny wore this gorgeous two-tone mini to the Daytime Emmy Awards in 2012.

Winter whites are a hot fashion topic, and we think Bethenny pulls the trend off effortlessly in this beaded white mini.

Another green win for the entrepreneur, this jumpsuit hits all the right style notes at the 2012 Bravo Upfronts.
21 / 50
Who else can pull off a bright pink dress with orange shoes?
22 / 50
Despite matching the step-and-repeat and the launch of Skinnygirl Daily, Bethenny makes this classic colour combination work.
23 / 50
This black and silver LBD (cinched with a leather belt!) is one of Bethenny's best looks.
24 / 50
Sometimes all an LBD needs is a little (or a lot) of ruffles.
25 / 50
Radiant in red
A red satin shift dress (with a gold metal belt) isn't the easiest look to pull off, but we have to say Bethenny #nailedit.
26 / 50
Another hue we think Ms. B should wear more of is purple. This mid-length violet figure-hugging dress is one of her best looks yet.
27 / 50
Super sexy in satin
Bethenny's definitely playing the part of stylish New Yorker at the party for US Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers in 2010.
28 / 50
Lovely in lace
This lace ruffled number was the perfect choice for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.

Glam in grey
Ruched in all the right places, this fitted grey dress looked killer on the new Mama.

Hitting the target
Another red win on the red carpet, Bethenny rocked this simple red dress to the grand opening of the East Harlem Target in 2010.
31 / 50
Blue for baby
Bethenny proves you can never go wrong with a classic in this periwinkle blue wrap dress.

35 / 50
Mad for metallics
This metallic mini is more proof that purple is one of Bethenny's best colours.
36 / 50
Taste of tennis
Looking pretty much ready to hit the court, this nautical-inspired shift dress was the perfect choice for this tennis event.
37 / 50
Ode to ombre
Before it was the biggest thing ever, Bethenny was rocking ombre way back in 2009.
38 / 50
Wearing cut-outs before cut-outs were even a thing, Bethenny looks smokin' hot in this floor-length white gown.
39 / 50
Look familiar? It might since almost every star has been wearing a version of this dress this year.
40 / 50
In standard Bethenny fashion, the stylish star rocks a black-and-white outfit to a UNICEF party in 2009.
41 / 50
We know Bethenny has a soft spot for embellished dresses, and we think this is one of her best ever.
42 / 50
Doing it for The Derby
At the 2009 Kentucky Derby, Bethenny really got into the spirit in this over-the-top jumpsuit and oversized hat.

44 / 50
The colour purple
This sequined figure-hugging dress looked glamorous and gorgeous at the season two premiere of RHONY.
45 / 50
Sometimes less is more, as Ms. B proves in this simple red shift dress.
46 / 50
If you needed any more proof that jumpsuits are always a good choice, we'd say this is it.
47 / 50
Take notes: this is how you do lingerie dressing right.
48 / 50
This gold dress deserves a gold medal. (Just look at that detailing!)
49 / 50
All tied up
Question: What do you wear to a Victoria's Secret fashion show? Answer: This.

This might just be the least boring LBD ever worn on a red carpet.
