Posted on


Hypnotics/Splash News Online

If you admire the way former model and fashion photographer Kelly Bensimon dresses on The Real Housewives of New York City, Sunday was your chance to snap up stylish items straight from the reality star’s designer wardrobe! Kelly cleaned house, or houses, in this case–both her East Hampton and Manhattan abodes–and had a label-heavy tag sale on the lawn of Georgica Creek Antiques in Wainscott, New York to benefit Island Harvest, a charity that fights hunger on Long Island. But this was no ordinary garage sale, with designer T-shirts, dresses and denim that one might be more likely to encounter on the pages of a magazine than strewn across a yard sale lawn. Chic sequined ball gowns from French Connection, stylish pieces from Rogan, Calypso, as well as a creamy dress from Twinkle—many with original tags—highlighted the fashionable assortment, while shoes included Prada pumps and a tall pair of silver boots. Bensimon’s daughters, Sea, and Teddy, were also present, setting up a lemonade stand to benefit the East Hampton Library. Also on hand? Bensimon’s hair stylist, Bradley Irion, who helped the reality star cull through her East Hampton closets, and of course, make sure that she looked fabulous for the big event. “I gave her a nice little curl, got the texture rolling,”Bradley Irion said. “She’s smokin’ hot for her yard sale.” Added Bensimon: “I can’t even do a yard sale without my hair being done.” Tell us: What would you want from Kelly Bensimon’s closet? –Jeffrey Slonim
