Each one of ABC's Bachelorettes is like a unique flower (a unique rose if you will), and all of them have their own eclectic sense of style. Take Emily Maynard, who spent her entire season of The Bachelorette draped in glittery mumus and cowboy hats, or Ashley Hebert, who spent much of her time on The Bachelorette looking like she was going on safari.
But the most unique fashionista yet? That would be Bachelorette Season 9's Desiree Hartsock, who dazzled in a sequined silver gown by Randi Rahm during the show's season premiere on May 27th. It makes sense that Desiree has great personal style (after all, she's a bridal designer), and apparently girlfriend was willing to take all kinds of wardrobe risks while filming The Bachelorette.
"Desiree is very fun. She has a touch of tomboy during the day," The Bachelorette's stylist, Cary Fetman, tells Entertainment Weekly. "She's very athletic, she likes to do every sport that all the boys are doing. Then at night, she likes to pull out the super glam sexy short dresses. She's got those legs that are killer when she's in a short dress."
Desiree loves to style herself pretty, and she even designed one of her own Rose Ceremony dresses! "It's a very pretty purple stretch silk jersey with crystals," Cary teases. "She did crystal bibbing...That was one of the few times that we've ever had that option to work like that with somebody. Desiree was the first Bachelorette to design her own dress. That part was very fun."
Unfortunately, we won't be able to replicate Des' custom dress (it's one of a kind!), but the good news? A large chunk of her wardrobe was bought at reasonably priced chain stores. "I did a ton of Old Navy things where I mixed and matched with stuff," Cary says. "All of the sudden, Old Navy had all these spring and summer goods that were bright and amazing."
Mmmmmk, excuse us while we go attach some "crystal bibbing" to our Old Navy cargo pants.
