According to Bachelor stylist Cary Fetman, it was the Bachelor’s most dramatic finale. On the March 5 episode of the two-night Bachelor finale, Arie Luyendyk Jr., made his final choice between Becca Kufrin and Lauren Burnham.
Arie earned the title of one of the biggest villian’s in the show’s history as he broke Lauren’s heart after promising her that he loved her. Yet in the post show interview, he seemed reluctant to let go of his relationship with Lauren.
Lauren looked stunning wearing a Mac Duggal fringe gown. This V Neckline gown features a beaded bodice giving way to a fully beaded fringe skirt with back vent and industrial raw zipper. (Style 4612D is also available in Midnight Blue)

There are tons of prom dresses that look great on a hanger. But you’re looking for one that you can fall in love with, makes you look amazing, and flatters your figure. Here are some tips on finding silhouettes that flatter specific body types:
A fun short dress with a flared skirt and fitted bodice will fill out your small frame and add the illusion of an hourglass figure. In the Mac Duggal Prom, After 5 and Ieena collections, you can find dresses that are perfect for your body shape!
If you are looking for the illusion of appearing taller, be sure to view the mermaid gowns in our Prom, Flash, and Cassandra Stone collections. Mermaid dresses give you a shaped silhouette with a fitted bodice, and the dramatic hemlines elongate the body.
Walk tall with confidence and show your amazing figure off! The soft gathering of a rouched dress keeps you from looking too thin and long. You could also find a short dress from our Prom Collections which will be sure to reveal your long legs. A high leg slit or high-low dress will give you the perfect accent to your frame. Show off your best feature with a dress that accentuates your legs and makes you walk tall! Or elongate your midriff even more with a gorgeous two piece dress. The amazing designs in our Mac Duggal Prom Collection will flatter any tall girl.
Your curves are what make you unique,and a perfect form fitting dress is what you need to make your night truly special. A diagonal or one shoulder strap will add more support so you can show of your bare shoulder with confidence. Several styles in the Fabulouss collection do exactly that, and give you the all-around support for dancing throughout the night.
An empire waistline draws the perfect amount of attention to your slim waist, while also creating an emphasis on your beautiful curves. A simple draped fabric of the skirt falls over your curves to increase confidence and comfort. Many empire style gowns are available in our Ball Gown collection and also all of the Mac Duggal Prom collections.
Apple (Full Figured- Fuller Bust line)
An apple shape describes women who are typically “top heavy,” meaning that they have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a fuller bust and waist. Apple shape figures generally want to draw attention to their bust and away from their mid-section. It’s important to wear dresses that flow from underneath the bust, expanding at the waist. Draped or ruched gathers that lie flat across your middle will work wonders without adding too much extra volume. A gorgeous empire waist dress is the perfect choice for a girl who is an apple shape.
Pear (Full Figured- Bigger Bottom Line)
Pear shaped body figures are recommended to have a tighter fitting bodice with a skirt that flares outward. A gown with an intricate neckline and a high waist put the spotlight on your sexy upper half.
Find a dress that floats over your hips. There are many different variations of dresses that flatter a pear shaped body figure. These type of dresses create a slimming look, with just the right amount of sex appeal.
The sheath style evening gown, like the usual sheath dress is designed to fit the body tightly. It can be belted or unbelted, and has a straight drape. It can have shoulder straps or be strapless. This style dress can be perfect for any body shape and can be worn for a more simplistic and modest look.
A princess style dress is the most traditional prom dress that we have many variations of in the Ball gown collection. This style of dress can make anyone and any body shape feel like royalty on their special night.
The A-line style evening gown is close-fitting at the top and gradually widens at the bottom, without gathers or pleats. A- line dresses are commonly simple but often attract attention with its elegant appearance. There is an A-line dress for every body shape in both our Prom and Fabulouss collections.
The waistline is dropped below the actual waistline. This style dress is generally worn to elongate the waist and create a slim look. The skirt can be fitted or flared. This style can be worn by any body type!
If the evening gown is trumpet shaped, it is tight fitting until it reaches the mid thigh or the knees, where it flares. The difference between mermaid and trumpet style prom gowns is that the mermaid gown hugs your body all the way to the knees before it fans out. Trumpet prom dresses are fitted through the hips to mid thigh and then flair a bit less severely. This dress style is best for tall, curvy, and peared shaped body types.r
Mermaid, as the name suggests, resembles a mermaid’s silhouette. The evening gown is form fitting around the bodice and contoured to your body all the way to the knees where the skirt flares out dramatically. This style flatters slender, fit, and near flawless body types as it shows off all your curves.

The Perfect Prom Dress to Flatter Your Figure
Jan. 18, 2018
Prom is a big event for every young girl—an occasion when you can dress your best and have fun. The outfit you choose for it will be immortalized through photographs taken on the day. Therefore, you must find a dress that helps you look your best. It should also be comfortable, since you will be wearing the dress for several hours and even dancing in it.
Here is a round-up of the hottest prom dress trends for 2018 from the fashion enthusiasts at Best for Bride in Canada to inspire your choice.
Fringe dresses provide the carefree, glitzy, glamorous fashion statement that made this style all the rage among flappers during the 1920’s. All eyes will be drawn to you as the fringe shimmies and sways when you enter a room or step upon the dance floor. Mac Duggal has brought up to date styling to the fringe dress, giving them a modern look and feel. View more fringe dresses
Ball Gown Prom Dresses
The perfect evening gown for that grand entrance of your dreams is a romantic ball gown prom dress. It fulfills the dream of walking into a room and feeling like a princess. And when twirling across the dance floor you will feel like teen royalty. Prom dresses with a ball gown look and feel are surging in popularity this season. In particular, soft hue colors like rose gold and powder blue are on trend this year, to the point where these colors have become equal in popularity to red and black dresses. For a bold look in the red spectrum, burgundy prom dresses are in vogue this year.
Shine in Gold
Bring on the bling in a gown embellished with golden sequins or brocade. Metallics are very fashionable, and gold is the hottest choice this year. This universally flattering metallic hue works on all complexions and is just perfect to steal the spotlight. It is also a versatile choice that works well with any hairstyle and makeup. You hardly need any accessories to complete your prom day look, when your dress is opulent with golden details. So make a majestic appearance in a gold dress and you will certainly be noticed.
Dresses with Dramatic Backs
Show skin without being flashy in a dress with dramatic back details. This is a great option to show-off your sense of style in a sophisticated way. You can make your pick from illusion designs embellished with lace appliques and crystal embroidery, sheer overlays, pretty keyhole cut-outs and low-cut open backs. Keyhole backs and illusion details offer beautiful coverage, while low-cut and open backs are revealing and bold. Don’t forget to choose a suitable hairstyle that highlights the back of your dress and doesn’t distract from its statement features.
Lace Details and Accents
If you love elegant and classy styles, lace is the way to go. All-over lace dresses are eternally romantic with timeless allure. Look for playful colors like bright red or blue for a modern twist on the classic. You can even go gothic with black lace. Or include lace in your outfit as an accent, by choosing a dress with lace sleeves. For a contemporary look, pick sexy silhouettes like the mermaid or sheath in lace. When wearing lace, choose your accessories with care or you can end up with a cluttered look.
Don’t hide your beautiful, slender legs beneath yards of fabric. Show them off in a splendid high-low hemline dress. This style of a short hemline in the front that grows to floor-length at the back is very youthful and chic. Pay attention to your choice of footwear, since it will be visible beneath the short skirt in the front. Contrast colored footwear will stand out and make a statement, when paired with a dressy high-low gown that cascades and flows in the background. For more inspiration on this look, visit this celebrity trend post on Instyle.
Spaghetti straps and slightly wider straps on the shoulders and crossing over the bodice or back are fashionable now. This vintage-inspired trend has a 90’s vibe, and looks best in solid color dresses. Dresses with sheer panels and cut-outs along sides and neckline also feature slender straps that structure the dress and hold it in place. This is a dramatic look to explore if you don’t mind showing off some skin. For an effortless and stylish look, keep your accessories minimum and choose a tousled and natural looking hairstyle.
Black and White
The black and white combination is a welcome update to the all-black gothic look, and one you can easily personalize. This classic combination of two neutrals is impressive for its simplicity and elegance. Take your cue from the monochrome look sported by Michelle Williams on the Oscar Red carpet, and choose a black and white dress with a plunging neckline for added impact. On the other hand, go with patterns in these two colors for a fun and flirty look. Complete your black and white outfit with a pair of brightly colored heels or sandals for a pop of color.
Incredibly versatile, two-pieces are the way to go if you love unique and customized looks. It allows you to mix and match colors and textures to make your own fashion statement. With the right style of top and skirt, you can create any silhouette whether it is a mermaid, sheath, fit and flare or A-line. You can also pick different colors for the top and bottom. The latest trend is to pair a crop top with a skirt, so you have a separate bodice and skirt that comes together while showing off a bit of skin. Two-piece dresses are also a practical option if you are on a tight budget, since there will be several options that work within your given budget.
