Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette clothing budget: $350,000+

The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard had a $350,000 clothing budget that they exceeded, according to her stylist.

In an interview with In Touch, Emily’s stylist, Cary Fetman, said the clothing budget “was bigger than any previous season — and we still went over!”

Fetman views his work with her as playing with an object–“For me, it was like dressing a Barbie doll!”–a comparison that probably shouldn’t be surprising in the outrageously sexist context of this show or the rest of the interview, in which he says things like, “She loves to be a girlie girl.” Cue barfing on the expensive clothing.
