Whether you’re a reality TV junkie or not, you’ve undoubtedly been sucked into the drama that is Scandoval. I mean, all you need to do is simply ~open~ your Instagram app to be flooded with VPR content (and if you need a refresher, @BravobyBetches is an elite place to get it).

And while there is no more comforting feeling than knowing we’re all picking the same side, it’s even more satisfying seeing Ariana just fucking nail the dress code. Honestly, she could wear a potato sack and still look stunning, but her look on Watch What Happens Live last night solidified the fact that there hasn’t been a better clap back since Princess Diana’s revenge dress circa 1994. 

I feel like this whole revenge era kicked off with Ariana’s OG #Scandoval dress: the iconic red number she wore to the season 10 reunion that actually isn’t even a dress at all. It’s a top/skirt combo with a price tag that would likely end any relationship. But honestly, who are we to judge? Feeling hot AF is priceless. But, if you aren’t either a) on a PR list for free shit or b) in a position to fork over a paycheck for a single dress (hi, it’s me), I found some dresses inspired by her killer looks so you can have your own revenge era. You’re welcome.
