It’s no secret that when we’re not busy looking at Bachelor Richie, we’re scouring the cocktail parties to determine which contestant has the best look of the night.
And sometimes, the outfits on offer are almost as interesting – and dramatic – as the girls themselves. (Hello, did you see Olena’s history-making jumpsuit on the show’s premiere episode?)
While the girls are allowed to bring two suitcases full of clothes into the mansion with them, the never-ending schedule of group dates, single dates and cocktail parties means stylists are often on hand to provide the girls with fabulous dresses.
Now, the show’s senior stylist Anne Stringer has revealed one contestant on this year’s season had a rather… unrealistic request for one of her cocktail dresses this year.
“We ask them what labels they like to wear and what they feel comfortable wearing. One girl this year said she wanted something by J’Aton,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“That hasn’t happened yet but hopefully in future seasons.”
For the uninitiated, J’Aton is one of Australia’s leading couture labels. Remember the pale blue Cinderella-like gown Bec Judd wore to the Logies this year? That was one of their creations.
Stringer also revealed that she spends an hour with each girl before the very first rose ceremony, getting to know their style so she can fit them for their grand Bachelor debut. (Post continues after gallery.)
While J’Aton may be a bit of a stretch, other Australian brands recognise the value of being involved with the popular reality TV show.
