Kelly Bensimon on Her Multiple Sunglass Personalities

Posted on

Kelly Bensimon may have become best known for her issues with the other ladies on
The Real Housewives of New York City
, but it’s not the only thing she gets asked about. “Ever since I wore my Bottega Veneta sunglasses last season … everyone went crazy over what I was wearing,” Bensimon told PEOPLE at the SOLSTICE Sunglass Boutique Summer Soiree in N.Y.C. on Tuesday night. “So I kind of became a sunglasses fanatic.” But while her designer specs made a splash on TV, the former model said she likes to change things up in real life. “I mix. I have two different personalities. On the one hand I like Ray-Bans with sweatbands, gold, very chic. And then I also like to be covered up, put my baseball cap on … and go get ice cream with my kids. So then I like something more like Carreras or Tom Fords, something a little bit more substantial.” Bensimon’s other obsession as of late is her new book, due out in January, entitled I Can Make You Hot. She explained, “the premise of the book is eating well, living well, and having a good time. If you’re not smiling, something’s wrong.” –Reporting by Sydney Berger
