If you've been watching this season of ABC's The Bachelorette, you know that main character Emily Maynard loves a dramatic, floor-sweeping gown—preferably covered in sequins. But for last night's episode, set in Curacao, Maynard had to take it down a notch. So her stylist decided to pull two looks from LA brands known for their easy, sexy-yet-casual designs. The eagle-eyed viewers over at Possessionista noted that in one of the first scenes of the episode, Emily pensively walks along the beach in LnA's $143 Studio maxi dress (the spotting was confirmed by LnA on Twitter this morning). Later on, after some hot tub time with prospective bachelor Sean, she donned the Harmonia cover-up ($187) by Jen's Pirate Booty.
This isn't the first time Maynard's stylists have pulled from LA showrooms—she seems to favor West Coast labels for whenever she's having a "casual" moment. A weeks ago she wore a dip-dyed tee from Solow and she's also sported a Whitney Eve romper, a Joie top and Wildfox cut-offs.
Update: We've just been informed that the bikini Emily is wearing in the third and fourth photos is by Bettinis, another West Coast brand.
