Season five of Netflix’s hit reality drama Selling Sunset hit our screens Friday, April 22nd and most avid fans seem to have consumed it all already and we can’t blame them.
Fashion is a big part of the show and there’s no way you’ll spot Mary Fitzgerald, Chrishell Stauce and of course Christine Quinn walking into the Oppenheim Group’s real estate office without a pair of designer heels.
Now it has been revealed that the heels are worn on purpose for the camera.
Although we never see the cast in anything but heels and a cute outfit, off camera the reality stars were seen slipping into flip flops and slippers to give their feet a break.

Mary Fitzgerald told US Weekly it’s partly because of their forward-thinking mentality and also because of the strict show standard on heels.
She revealed that the show’s creator, Adam DiVello, doesn’t like seeing women in apartments, saying, “Adam DiVello [the show’s creator] don’t really like people wearing ballet flats.
“If they’re flat, then they better be very fashionable boots. So if we’re just trying to put on a really comfortable pair of shoes, he’s probably like, ‘Hmm, please change -the.”
It’s not just their shoes that Adam has his sights set on, because clothes are just as important as real estate. Checkers cannot be the same color or similar to each other, or the producers will ask one of them to change.
Mary, who has starred on the show since its inception, told the US magazine that she’s a little more low-key than her castmates when it comes to style.
She said: “I don’t think I tried as hard as the other girls, I just have a ton of things to do before I start filming again. I’m just going to have a stockpile and it [my outfit] will just depend on my mood that day. I’m not really over the top about it, but I’m trying to intensify the style a bit more.
Well, it’s safe to say that we loved her outfits in the most recent series and can’t wait to check out her new era of style.
