'The Bachelor' stylist on dressing Juan Pablo: 'He would wear every color of the rainbow'

The Bachelor needs help getting dressed. That’s where wardrobe supervisor Cary Fetman comes in.

Since 2006, Fetman has overseen the wardrobe on The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and special episodes like the recent nuptials of Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. He pulls clothes for the star of each season, doles out fashion advice to the contestants, and has even designed a few one-of-a-kind ensembles. “Once we start shooting we really don’t stop, so everything is done the week before we begin. We pick the clothes for a whole season [in advance],” Fetman told EW. “You [anticipate] those emergency situations and try to prepare for them. We’ve arrived in countries where our suitcases don’t arrive — all of a sudden we’re trying to find a clothing store that has what we need. And all the sizes are different. That’s why I’m there.”

Fetman says that Juan Pablo Galavis didn’t rely on him as much as past Bachelors have. “He was not afraid to try anything. He never worried about what people would think if he was wearing bright yellow pants with an orange shirt and purple socks. He loved it all,” the stylist said of the former pro soccer player’s sartorial instincts. “[Juan Pablo] said, ‘I want Miami hot, and a little taste of Latin.’ I took that and ran with it.”

Galavis even taught Fetman a few things. “Off-camera, he’d wear a brand [called Guy Look] from Korea that I’d never heard of. It’s sweats from the ’80s [that look] like M.C. Hammer pants with the crotch hanging down to below the knees. I was like, ‘There’s not a chance in hell that’s what you’re wearing on camera!’ But I fell in love with [other items from] the line and started ordering things. Some of the stuff wasn’t [too] scary for the audience. Every once in a while, I’d say, ‘No, no, no. Middle America is going to be looking at you going, ‘What the hell is going on here?'”

As for the female contestants, they were on their own until the finale. “I bring a whole fitting to the country [we’re filming in] — I’ve got all the gowns, all the accessories, and all the shoes in two bags — and each person gets her own bag,” Fetman explains. “I always pray that both finalists are the same size, but that rarely ever happens.”

Read on for more to see what Fetman had to say about Juan Pablo’s style, making sure that the contestants don’t accidentally flash the cameras, and what went on behind-the-scenes at Catherine and Sean’s wedding.


'The Bachelor' Wedding: What Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe wore

The bride wore a gown from — gasp! — two seasons ago, and the groom wore a borrowed designer tux.

From the nuptial ensembles to the rings and even the bride’s wedding night lingerie, ABC pulled out most of the stops for the nuptials of The Bachelor‘s Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. (Life & Style estimates the cost of the made-for-TV ceremony to be somewhere around $250,000, which is just a drop in the bucket compared to the reported $4 million dollars spent on the nuptials of Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter in 2003.)

“I’ve always felt like a cute girl, trying to be fun and playful, but this time I’m really coming out as a woman and I want to wear something very form-fitting and sexy,” the bride told GMA‘s Lara Spencer during her hunt for the perfect dress. The groom also envisioned himself in a one-in-a-lifetime look. “This is my one chance to wear a baller tux,” he told ABC News.

Chris Harrison to launch his new men's clothing line on 'The Bachelor' finale -- EXCLUSIVE

As the host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison has doled out plenty of dating advice. Now that he’s preparing for the launch of his own clothing line, can future contestants also expect to benefit from his sartorial wisdom?

I’m working very closely with Cary Fetman, who has been our wardrobe designer for nine out of the ten years we’ve been doing The Bachelor,” the TV host told EW. “He’s working with me and [co-designer] Christopher Wicks on this deal and helping me incorporate [the clothes] into the show.” As it happens, the Chris Harrison Collection by Da Vinci will arrive in stores the same day the Bachelor finale airs next month. “I’ll wear one of my suits on the finale, and then we’re going to roll over to a launch party at the Da Vinci store on Melrose in L.A.,” Harrison explained. “I’m really excited about it!”

Harrison took his new togs out for a test run on Sunday night, donning a jacket, vest and tie (pictured above) from his eponymous line to host the TV Guide Network’s Grammy Awards red carpet show and attend a post-ceremony party. “I had a red tie, kind of skinny tie with this cool Eldridge knot,” he said of the ensemble. “Neil Patrick Harris could not stop talking about it.”

Harrison hopes the buzz will continue to grow once his designs make their Bachelor debut.
