Celebuzz’d 033: If Real Housewife Carole Radziwill Could Turn Back Time, She’d Raid This Style Icon’s Closet

Peabody Award-winner Carole Radziwill from The Real Housewives of New York City knows a thing or two about owning her sense of personal style.

You can’t constrain her wardrobe to fit under one category, though — she’s well-tailored with a hint of leather and rock and roll, effortlessly minimal when it’s necessary, and ethereal in the name of glamour. When we sat down to discuss emerging trends in fashion and eyewear for this episode of the Celebuzz’d podcast, she wore suede, flared bottoms with a long-sleeved black sweater and accessorized with Zac Posen glasses. Simply stated, Radziwill’s look was autumnal simplicity at its finest.

The New York native shares with us her tips on choosing eyewear based on one’s face shape and suggests using Eyecessorize as a one-stop shop to find stylish frames or sunglasses that speak the same language as your personal style statement. Even for those with 20/20 vision, eccentric glasses add a pop of intrigue to any outfit faster than you can say “Housewives.”

“We all read all the time now,” says Radziwill. “We’re all reading our comments on Instagram and the font is really small. We’re all trying to read who’s saying what on Facebook and who’s pissing off who on Twitter. So we’re all reading all the time. It used to be, let’s be honest, that no one really read that much. But now we’re all reading all the time, outdoors, so to have sunglasses that are reading glasses is a necessity but also a style statement.”

We also reminisce about her beloved “Lunch Dates” column with Glamour, discuss her two books (get them here and here), and determine which legendary females inspire her wardrobe. We’ll give you one hint as to her first pick:
