Christine Quinn Gets Candid About Shoes, Pick-Me Girls, And Lauren Conrad
Christine Quinn is the perfect villain. Complete with blonde extensions and a low tolerance for lying, the Selling Sunset realtor was seemingly made in a reality TV show factory. Between spitfire quips, scenes from a “sexual Phantom of the Opera”-themed engagement party, and not being able to operate a Keurig because of her fresh manicure, Quinn easily won over viewers despite her traditional mean girl stereotype. Somehow, she was able to morph her brand as the antagonist from inadmissible to wholly likable, due in part to her self-awareness of playing the role. (Davina, on the other hand, is another story.)
Quinn wholeheartedly and unapologetically embraces being a bitch, but with a positive spin. “I really think that ‘bitch’ is a word that should be embraced,” she told ELLE.com over the phone. Until our chat, she didn’t know what a “Pick Me” was at all, Dr Marten Boots and somehow that makes sense: “I’ve never heard of that,” she said. “If anything, I think of the ’50s when I hear that phrase. But I don’t listen to my husband ever, so I’m not the right person [to ask].”
The theatrical confidence of Quinn extends to her style. Armored in designer logos, power colors, and full glam by the time she clocks into the office, her bold fashion sense is undeniable. Even if you don’t like the aesthetic, you can’t not love Quinn for walking backward down a staircase, because otherwise, she’d snap an ankle. Quinn made selling million-dollar homes in six-inch heels her brand, and she’s taking it even further with her latest business venture. Launching today, she partnered up with Shoedazzle for a shoe collection as theatrical as she is. We chatted with Quinn to discuss her tips on teetering in stilettos, her personal favorite reality show leads, and the upcoming season of Selling Sunset, below.
