With the influx of heavily retouched photos, filters, and layers of makeup, it's refreshing to see people show a side that's more natural and authentic.
Shawn Booth’s workout playlist must have had Beyoncé on it—and he must have heeded her advice—because on Monday night’s finale of The Bachelorette’s 11th season, the personal trainer decided he liked it so much, he put a ring on it. “Shawn was very self-assured and there was no doubt in his mind about what he was about to do,” celebrity jeweler Neil Lane, who helped both contestants choose rings, told People. “He was not nervous at all and was like, ‘That’s the ring, that’s the girl and we are moving on together.’” And while Bristowe, 30, looked beautiful in her tailored-to-fit blush pink Mac Duggal gown, Bachelorette Nation is gawking over the 3.5-carat Neil Lane ring. On Tuesday morning, headlines claimed that Bristowe’s ring, though not the biggest in the show’s history, was the most expensive ring that any Bachelor or Bachelorette had ever received.

Lucky for The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe, she’s found a friend in the show’s stylist, Cary Fetman, who helped her find the perfect gown for the much-anticipated final rose ceremony (that will air on July 27 at 8 pm ET on ABC). “I would say that Kaitlyn, during the first two days of the fitting, tried on 75 to 90 gowns.” So how on Earth did she come to choose the one she’d wear on the night she just might commit to her life partner? Kaitlyn Bristowe: It was one of the first dresses I tried on before the season even started, when I was trying to find my night one gown.
