'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.


'Castle': What do you think of Beckett's wedding dress? -- POLL

“Murder is the new black.”

So says Castle (Nathan Fillion) when he and Beckett (Stana Katic) investigate the death of an assistant at Modern Fashion magazine on tonight’s episode, fittingly titled “Dressed to Kill.”

Is Modern Fashion editrix Matilda King (Frances Fisher) — a blunt bobbed ice queen who bears a resemblance to Vogue‘s Anna Wintour, the real-life inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada‘s Miranda Priestly — the prime suspect, or is she bride-to-be Beckett’s fashion fairy godmother?

A former teen model, Beckett finds it easy to infiltrate the fashion industry and by the time the hour is up, not only has she caught the killer, she’s found her dream wedding dress.

The 'Bones' Wedding: What Brennan, Booth, and the interns wore

Brennan (Emily Deschanel) once said she’d never wear white, but she broke that vow when she walked down the aisle to marry Booth (David Boreanaz) on the Oct. 21 episode of Bones, appropriately titled “The Woman in White.”

“It was one of those dresses where, when [Emily] put it on, it was like, ‘Ahh… that’s the one,” Bones costume designer Robin Lewis West told EW of the embroidered lace off-the-shoulder wedding gown. “She tried on a lot of dresses, but this one fit her beautifully.”

Before saying yes to the dress, West’s wardrobe team searched the racks at a number of L.A.-area bridal shops for a gown that would suit the style of the character, flatter the actress who plays her, and fit the specific guidelines laid out in the script. As for the groom, one great designer suit and a signature accessory, and he was ready to say “I do.”

'Girls' star Jemima Kirke kisses a girl in a new bridal fashion ad

That’s so Jessa.

Judging from the photos of Jemima Kirke in the Stone Fox Bride spring 2013 lookbook, it seems the actress is as uninhibited as the character she plays on the HBO series Girls.

Kirke and jewelry designer Pamela Love, both wearing minimalist boho bridal gowns from the label, are pictured as a same-sex couple locked in what appears to be a passionate post-nuptial embrace. (The lookbook also features a male couple dressed in lacy frocks.) Kirke also models solo, wearing nothing underneath a see-through dress called “The Jemima.”  READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Katniss' wedding dress designer revealed

Until last night, any betting fashionista would have put her money on the theory that Katniss Everdeen’s wedding dress — as seen in the Victory Tour portrait released earlier this week — was the work of Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton.

But Catching Fire costume designer Trish Summerville has set the record straight, revealing that the maker of the gown is a lesser-known fashion designer who has dressed real-life celebrities like Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian.

Rather than cash in on the fashion buzz, J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons says the apparel brand is retiring the sparkly belt and purple gloves that Michelle Obama wore on Inauguration Day. The color of the J. Crew lady coat worn by First Daughter Malia is also being discontinued “out of respect for the First Family.” [NBC]
