Two roses are better than one.
After Tuesday’s shocking finale of “The Bachelor,” Bachelor Nation was treated to another surprise: There will be not one, but two female leads this year.
Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia – who both missed out on the final rose – will take on the role of ‘The Bachelorette’ in the same season after being heartbroken by Clayton Echard during the hit reality show’s wild ending.
But savvy “Bachelor” fans could have already told you Windey, 30, was the new star just by looking at her outfit.
You see, she wore “Black bachelor.”
In recent years, many would-be “Bachelorettes” have stepped out on “The Bachelor” finale wearing a head-turning black dress, and the brunette – who won fans’ hearts by standing up to Echard during of the final – was no exception. .
Wearing a form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana black corseted dress ($2,095) and the brand’s crystal-studded black heels ($995), it was clear ABC was casting her as the new woman to watch, as did some of the tracks that came before .
Michelle Young, who would go on to become one of two ‘Bachelorettes’ of 2021, stepped out in a sparkly long-sleeved mini by Alexandre Vauthier for her appearance on ‘After the Final Rose’ during Matt James’ tumultuous 2021 run as “The Bachelor”. ”
During the same season, Katie Thurston, who shared “Bachelorette” duties with Young later in 2021, appeared on “The Women Tell All” in Herve Leger’s elegant asymmetrical black “Icon” dress ( $850).
And Hannah Brown, who would become Season 15’s “Bachelorette,” wore a plunging $2,400 black dress by Alexandre Vauthier on Colton Underwood’s 2019 episode “The Women Tell All.”
While Windey was dressed in black, the show also played a little trick on the audience: our second “Bachelorette”, Rachel Recchia, wore gold.
While most Bachelor Nation members were already assuming Windey was the new lead, they baffled fans to have two ‘Bachelorettes’, having Recchia, 25, showing off a gold beaded mini dress by Gia by Anne Barge.
Adding to her look $1,200 ‘Chantal’ sandals by Rene Caovilla dripping in sparkling crystals, the blonde beauty kissed her friend as host Jesse Palmer announced that the two would be the two stars of the 19th season of “The Bachelorette”.
Sadly, Bachelor Nation will have to wait until July to see what this duo will wear when the limos arrive, but we’re expecting big things.
