It’s official: Rachel Lindsay is engaged! Whether you were surprised or not by that dramatic finale, you probably weren’t surprised that she left us with a truly stunning look for the proposal. Rachel wore a silver beaded gown with a sexy high slit by Randi Rahm, a designer who is not only a Bachelor franchise favorite, but one whose designs Rachel herself has worn seven(!) other times throughout the season — including her gorgeous premiere dress.
“We sent this dress specifically to be the finale gown,” Rahm tells PeopleStyle exclusively. “It was spotted by her stylist Cary first and we agreed, it was the best choice for her.”
Like her premiere dress, which weighed 25-30 pounds (depending on who you ask), the fully beaded look Rachel wore for the finale weighed “at least” 30, according to the designer. However, the heaviness didn’t deter our Bachelorette. “Once Rachel saw the dress in person, there was no question which gown she was going to pick. This was the clear winner,” says Rahm.

And although Rachel did not get to keep the couture piece, it’s solidified its place in TV history. “It was one of those moments that takes your breath away. We couldn’t be happier with how stunning she looked,” Rahm says.
After all, Rachel does have her sparkly new Neil Lane engagement ring to take home. And, you know, a sexy new fiancé!
