Last night, the 18th season of The Bachelor wrapped up.
Much-maligned bachelor Juan Pablo picked Nikki over Clare. (Psst that’s Clare NOT HAVING IT).
Nikki ostensibly “won” Juan Pablo, but screw that. Who cares about that guy? It’s all about the dresses.
There’ve been 43,545 seasons* of The Bachelor and dresses on the show tend to follow similar styles.
*OK, fine, there have actually been 18 seasons, not counting spin-off shows like Bachelor Pad and its gender swap version, The Bachelorette.
But back to the finale dresses. They’re usually long, flowy, and either feature a one-shoulder or sweetheart neckline design.
LIKE EVERY SINGLE ONE.
