In response to the question of how her personal style has evolved since she joined the franchise, Kyle chuckles again. “Sometimes, when there are flashbacks to the first season, I’m horrified by what I’m wearing,” she says. “However, there are some items that I’ll always love, like good jeans, sneakers, sweaters from The Elder Statesman, and kaftans. People make fun of my kaftans, but I think they’re really chic and remind me of yacht holiday photos by Slim Aarons. Although I adore handbags, power-shoulder dresses, and jewelry, my style is actually extremely casual.”
It’s no secret that the actor has a handbag obsession, especially those from Hermès. Kyle’s remarkable collection of Kellys and Birkins was showcased throughout all 12 seasons of RHOBH. However, in 2017, a burglary took place at her family home, and she lost all of her prized possessions. “They took everything—all of my bags, as well as bags and jewelry that my mum left me,” she says. “Now, I’ve had to rebuild my collection, and let’s just say I’m doing very well. I try to get four of everything for each of my daughters.”
Does Kyle watch the show back, or indeed, any of the other Real Housewives series? “I have, especially at the start of the pandemic when we were all home,” she says. “But what was interesting was that when I joined the cast of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip [which brought together cast members from different franchises], the people were different than I expected them to be based on what I had seen on TV.” And who, in Kyle’s opinion, has the best fashion sense on RHOBH? “I can appreciate how everyone dresses and it suits them well, but I would never wear any of it.”
So, what’s coming up for Kyle? “My next film, Halloween Ends, comes out in October, which is really exciting, and I’m producing a one-hour drama for TV, as well,” she says. “My next goal is to produce a movie, so I’m manifesting that right now.”
Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is streaming now on Bravo.
