Brooke Blurton: In The Bachelorette Wardrobe
What is your favorite scent?
La Vie Est Belle by LancÃ´me is my must-have. It’s a little different, not too fruity or floral. It matches my personality.
What are the three essential elements in your wardrobe?
You can’t go wrong with good blue jeans – I like baggy boyfriend jeans in lighter denim. Plus a variety of white T-shirts – Uniqlo and Zara are good. And a hat. I love the cap, especially if you’re going out and haven’t done your hair! Must-have jewelry? Some gold coins from By Charlotte. I like their finesse and delicacy.
Can you remember a favorite clothing from the time you were a child ?
It’s embarassing. It was a pink punk rock style Hilary Duff T-shirt from a TV show she was on and I swear I never took it off, ever. I was nine years old and was becoming a bit of a tomboy. I loved sports and being active, so it matched my look at the time!
And your worst fashion mistake?
Spartan sandals that went up to the knee.
What was your first fashion moment?
All this season of The bachelorette. The final dress is the most amazing dress I have ever seen. He’s strapless, off-the-shoulder, in this beautiful blue fabric that looks like water. It was custom made for me by OgliaLoro Couture. sat [the designer] blindfolded me, put it on and took me to a mirror. I cried when I saw him. It is just breathtaking; I felt amazing.
What’s on top of your fashion wish list ?
A pair of Monday Swimwear swimmers. I look forward to the summer, the sand, the sea and the sun.
Who is your favorite fashion icon?
I love the masculine vibe of Shay Mitchell. Also, Olivia Culpo. I love the way she mixes design with basics; it always looks effortless.
Is there something that you would never want carry?
Is there a current fashion trend that you like?
A touch of color. I love all greens and blues – they look great on my skin. I try to incorporate more color into my very neutral wardrobe.
What shoes do you wear most often?
I’m a sneaker girl: Nike, New Balance and Adidas. I also like street styles, old school Vans and Converse.
What’s your favorite laid back casual Sunday look?
Cycling shorts and a PE Nation or Clothing the Gaps sweater. I am going to relax, walk my dog ââand try to sunbathe.
The Bachelorette Australia broadcast Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. on Channel 10.
