It’s a daunting task, meeting 25 potential strangers in one night — strangers  who want to date you and maybe marry you on national television. Equally daunting? Looking good while charming potential suitors and the millions of people watching you on The Bachelorette. Emily Maynard’s got her work cut out for her in tonight’s Bachelorette premiere — but, luckily, she’s also got a gown made specifically for her! Thanks to Dana Weiss and her inimitable Possessionista Fashion Blog, imitating Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette Barbie look just got that much easier.

The stunning sequin gown Emily wears in The Bachelorette premiere is made by Jean Fares, who has a history of dressing gorgeous blondes — including Paris Hilton and Carrie Underwood. It’s no surprise that Emily loves her some sequins, and this one-shoulder number looks gorgeous on her as she greets all of her 25 guys.

Will Emily be donning floor-length gowns for the rest of the season? While they might not all be floor-length, Em’s stylist says we will be seeing a fleet of dresses. “This season will be much more glamorous and glitzy,” adding, “Emily likes to dress up, so I over-gowned myself!”
