*Warning: This story contains spoilers about the season finale!*
The season finale of The Bachelorette aired Monday, and it was a night of important choices for Kaitlyn Bristowe, who not only had to pick between two handsome suitors vying for her affections, but she also had to decide what memorable and lavish gown would look best for the momentous occasion.
Luckily, she chose perfectly (in both regards -- clearly Shawn was the best choice).
For the final rose ceremony, Kaitlyn wore a stunning dusty rose Mac Duggal gown which accented her stunning figure and brought the kind of class and elegance that a reality competition dating show finale calls for.
Bachelorette stylist Cary Fetman, who spoke with Yahoo! Style, revealed that during the first two days of fittings, Kaitlyn "tried on 75 to 90 gowns."
But it was the Mac Duggal gown that had been Kaitlyn's destiny from the very beginning. In fact, she almost chose it for the premiere.
"It was one of the first dresses I tried on before the season even started, when I was trying to find my night one gown," Kaitlyn told Yahoo! Style. "When I put it on, I fell in love with it so fast."
However, Cary vetoed the choice, arguing that the dress was "too romantic and too soft for the first night." After all, Kaitlyn would be meeting 25 strangers who would be competing for her heart, and she didn't want to start off vulnerable and sweet.
"I thought it was perfect for the finale dress when she wants to be sweet and much more open," Cary explained.
But, Kaitlyn and Cary didn't want to too be overly wholesome either. Which is why they elongated the slit, in order to reveal more leg.
"There was already a slit there, but it wasn’t as spectacular as it became," Cary explained. "So the higher we went on the slit, the more it became Kaitlyn’s dress."
Then, Kaitlyn didn't miss a beat when it came to the super sexy white dress she chose for the "After the Final Rose" special.
The 30-year-old beauty rocked a skin-tight white midi-dress with a deep, plunging neckline that looked absolutely amazing with her perfectly tan skin tone.
Kaitlyn didn't need any accessories or sparkling jewelry stealing the spotlight from her flawless features. Instead, she slipped into the form-fitting dress and rocked it like a pro -- which no doubt made her new fiancé Shawn feel the need to make sure his style was on point.
Which of course he managed easily, looking particularly handsome in a traditional cut grey suit that looked like something out of Don Draper's closet.
