Kyle Richards has been an integral part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since its inception in 2010. Over the years, the reality star’s looks have changed as she has aged and her style has been updated.
While Richards may have some good genes, she’s also been very open and honest about what she did to stay young.
“When I see people who look perfect and pretend it’s just like that… it pisses me off. I’ll be honest because we’re all so hard on ourselves and you know when you see someone you think is golden they usually look so amazing,” Richards told Life & Style in October 2021.
On June 2, 2022, an Instagram account with the handle “bravo.then.vs.now” shared a side-by-side of Richards, using a photo from a few years ago and a more recent image for comparison.
Here’s what you need to know:
It didn’t take long for the post’s comments section to fill up, with many fans genuinely excited to see the change Richards has gone through.
“She looks amazing, great job,” wrote one fan.
“She did a really good job. Tasteful,” added another.
“Best plastic surgeon of any real housewife,” read another comment.
“I always thought Kyle was very beautiful. The work she has done is perfect, she looks stunning,” a fourth comment said.
“This is an example of how to look better as you age,” said a fifth person.
Of course, makeup is also key to Richard’s looks — and the art has come a very long way in the last decade alone.
In October 2020, Richards confronted some rumors that her face looked different. She took to her Instagram Stories to confirm she had a nose job.
“Since so many of you have been speculating as to what I did or didn’t do to my face…here’s your answer. I fixed my nose. I broke it last September and the bone sticking out bothered me. So I fixed the bone, fixed my breathing issues and refined the tip,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time, according to Bravo.
“I can breathe so well now that it’s a serious change for sleep,” she added, paying tribute to plastic surgeon Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants.
Previously, Richards has claimed that she hasn’t had a facelift, but that she does have other options to keep her youthful appearance — like botox injections.
“I haven’t done any cosmetic surgery. I got my nose done in 2006 and am getting botox. That’s it. There are things you can do to look younger that require surgery. Lasers are key,” Richards wrote in an Instagram comment, according to Reality Blurb. Something else Richards was a fan of? Vampire Facials.
According to the Columbia Skin Clinic, a vampire facial is a “cosmetic procedure that involves drawing blood from your arm, separating platelets, and applying them back to your face.”
